Whether you're going to a hot party at the trendiest club or you just want to grab attention with over the top hair, there are tons of sizzling sexed up styles to choose from.

Celebrities everywhere are showcasing an array of over the top hair in a dizzying array of colors, lengths, profiles and looks to inspire anyone with any type, texture and length of hair.

Listed below are some of the hottest over the top hair styles to consider:

Updated Ducktails - This edgy style can be crafted from long heavily back brushed hair, like the modified ducke hairstyle worn by Ke$ha at the 2010 American Music Awards.

Or it can be molded from a highly graduated short hair cut which can be positively prim and proper when brushed straight down.  There are endless styling possibilities to this attention grabbing style.

Follow the steps below to create an updated ducktail:

1. Start with second day hair spritzed with water and prepped with texturizing styling cream.

2. Work cream into damp tresses.

3. Use a 100% boar bristle paddle style brush and dry hair straight up while blow drying.

4. When hair is 100% dry, use the brush and back brush small sections until the hair is teased into the desired height. Build in added crunch with dry shampoo.

5. Lightly smooth back brushed hair into the desired shape.

6. Spray well with firm hold hairspray.

7. Add your own special touch by dusting the ends with contrasting colored hair chalk.

8. Pin a contrasting single section of brightly colored clip-in hair along one side for a more dramatic finish.

Full Mohawk - Janet Jackson sported a strikingly tall and very thick mohawk hairstyle throughout the Rock Witchu Tour 2008 in Chicago. Even though the superstar wore an eye popping array of costumes throughout her performance, her magnificent over the top hair wowed the crowds.

Of course not everyone would agree, but Janet's full mohawk provides excellent inspiration for anyone wanting to adopt all or part of the attention grabbing style.

Follow the steps below to create a mohawk you can make as high and full as you desire:

Top Act - Emelie Sande is known for her iconic over the top hair. At the 2012 BRIT Awards she wore a version of  Top Act.

Emelie's hairstyle combines tightly buzzed sides with very long top pieces of looped bleached hair which are twisted from the outer corner of one eye and directed towards the other side of the head.

The buzzed sides are dark brunette which creates a dramatic backdrop for the bleach blonde top.

Follow the steps below to create your own version of a top act:

1.  Start with newly wet cleansed hair prepped with styling mousse and blow dried with a round brush to create long wavy sections.

2.  When hair is 100% dry, use a 1 1/2" curling iron to curl individual sections of hair extending from the front of the hairline towards the back of the crown.

3.  After ironing, reform the newly created curls with fingers and pin to cool and set.

4.  Unpin the curls one section at a time.

5.  Pick up individual pieces of hair working from the front of the head towards the back. Twist in a clockwise direction to form desired loops.  If necessary anchor one end with small bobby pins in the same color as your hair.

6.  Spray with firm hold hairspray.
