Voluminous layers and honeyed highlights—paired with a quick go-around of a one-inch curling wand—will give you a stunning 'do like Iman's above.

3. Wavy Lob

To recreate Meryl Streep's look,which appears more voluminous on top and thinner at the ends, ask your stylist if you're a candidate to have your hair cut with hair thinning scissors.

4. Tapered Volume

Bangs are the perfect way to bring dimension to a straight style, especially when you're working with a shorter length.

6. Feathered Bob

The '70s had no shortage of middle parts or face-framing Farrah Fawcett layers, and Octavia Spencer's style features both.

7. '70s-Inspired Shag

A deep side part and a shiny, sleek lob are perfect for any occasion. For this cut, ask your stylist for blunt ends if you're looking to feign a thicker mane.

8. Retro Lob

The secret to voluminous hair lies in a good cut and great styling (styling sprays, curling irons, etc).
