Although Cassandra's side twist hairstyle is gorgeously glam, it's easy to re-create.

Follow the steps below:

a.  Pull hair back from the face on one or both sides.

b.  Select a 2" strand adjacent to the front of the hairline.

c.  Lift the strand and twist in a clockwise direction.

d.  Secure the twisted strand with bobby pins or a chic hair clip positioned underneath the rest of the hair.

e.  Finish the sexy hairstyle with smokey black eye liner and luscious pink gloss.

#2. & #3. Glammed Up Or Down Pony

Cassandra's long blonde hair looks equally amazing when pulled up into a sky high sleek pony positioned at the crown of the head or positioned right above the nape of the neck.

Note:  If you prefer, create a side part, direct hair to one side before pulling hair back into a low pony.

g.  Pull a small section of hair from the side of the ponytail and wrap around the base.

h. To achieve a blinding shimmer, spritz a 100% boar bristle brush with shine enhancing hairspray.  Lightly brush hair into place.

If you want a high level gloss apply a drop of shine serum to the palms of your hands.  Massage into fingers.

Lightly brush the shine serum palms over the top of the pony for extra oomph.

#4. Sexy Faux Bob

Although the character of Cassandra King has yet to rock a faux box on NBC's The Player, actress Charity Wakefield rocked a stunning edition of the sassy hairstyle on The Player's Press Tour.

a.  To create the illusion of a chic chop without scissors, create a deep side part.  Direct all of the hair over to once side of the head.

b.  Pull all the length of your hair up in the back into a messy low bun.

c.  Pin securely with bobby pins. Allow shorter layers to flow freely in front adjacent to the hairline.

d.  Crank up the sexy factor factor by wrapping the side sections around the barrel of a curling iron to create soft waves.

For a softer look, gently tug on newly created waves while hair is still warm.

#5. Sexy Sassy Waves

Sexy sassy waves are a classic hairstyle which look equally alluring with casual or dressy fashions.

Actress Charity Wakefield showcased loose, long sassy waves on the Red Carpet at the 2015 NBC Upfront Presentation.  Recreate Charity's look by starting with dry hair.

a.  Prep with the dry shampoo of your choice to add instant volume.

b.  After brushing to completely remove the dry shampoo, create a side part.

c.  Use a 2" barrel curling iron.  Separate hair into 2-4" sections working from ear level downwards.

d.  Wrap each individual strand around the barrel of the iron.  Release and use fingers to reform the new curls.  Pin into place to set and cool.

e.  Finish curling the entire head.

f.  Unpin when all of the curls are cool and set.  Use fingers to lightly rake through the curls to create waves.

g.  Create a side part and direct hair into a soft side-swept fringe.  Tuck one side of the hair behind one ear.

h.  Finish by applying a polishing cream to the palms of your hands.  Massage into fingers and lightly rake through tresses.

#6. & #7. Low-Do Or Updo Chignon

A low-do, the opposite of an updo, pulled to one side is gorgeous and easy to re-create.

c.  Direct hair back into a loose ponytail with a base positioned slightly to one side of the nape of the neck for a low-do.

d.  Lift the tail of the pony twisting the entire tail up and over the base of the pony.

e.  Pin the loose chignon into place slightly behind one ear with bobby pins, pulling a few loose strands out to create a sassy sexy look.

f.  Apply a shine spray to the palms of your hands and fingertips.

Optionally you can pull all of the hair up into a pony based halfway between the hairline and the crown.

Wrap pony into a loose chignon positioned on the top of the head.

Lightly swipe over the top of your chignons with shine spray prepped hands.

b.  Apply rinse out conditioner, finish with a cool/cold rinse and blot dry with a soft clean cotton t-shirt.

c.  Prep damp hair with styling products for heat styling.

d.  Use a blow dryer and round brush to dry hair straight, sleek and smooth.

Touch up the strands with a flat iron for picture perfect bone straight strands.

Remember to direct air flow from the blow dryer down the hair shaft from the roots to the ends to enhance shine.

Apply a drop of shine serum or shine spray to the palms of the hands and lightly swipe over the top of the style to prevent frizz.

#9. & #10. Half-up Or Half-down Twist

If you decide to create a sleek straight style, you can extend the life of the blow-out by wearing hair pulled back and up into a mid-head twist, chignon or braid.

Or you can copy Charity's half-up look.  It's very easy to do and works great on pre-straightened hair.

Follow the steps below to re-create:

a. Prep hair with the dry shampoo of your choice to add instant volume.

b.  After brushing hair completely to remove dry shampoo, brush all hair up and off the face with fingers or a boar bristle styling brush.

c.  Pull the side sections into a half pony positioned at the back of the crown.

d.  Brush all remaining hair down behind the ears so that the tresses cascade down behind the half pony.

e.  Lightly swipe over the top of your chignons with shine spray prepped hands.

For a softer look, lift each side section of the hair and direct towards the nape of the neck at the back of the head.   Gently twist each section as you direct it towards the back.  Secure the two twisted sections of said hair together with a Blax, bungee or similar.

All the rest of the hair to cascade out from under the twisted section or pull them into a ponytail with the base hidden under the twisted side sections.
