Aside from the hassle rain can cause on your commute, it also puts a, er, damper on doing your hair in the morning. These three styles are guaranteed to look good when you leave your home and even hold up against the rain or humidity. Plus, they all look great on just-out-of-the-shower hair, too.

This week, Zoe Saldana and Winona Ryder showed us why the faux bob is such a great style. Both ladies complemented their curled hair with red lipstick and little black dresses, but the styles themselves were vastly different. Zoe's faux bob at the UK premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness was pure vintage, with brushed-out waves and loads of shine. Winona's style, on the other hand, took on a more modern approach. She opted for tousled ringlets with plenty of texture. There is no wrong way to wear this trendy style, but which version would you rather emulate?

Give your hairstyle a trendy boost this season with a braided topknot, much like the one Nina Dobrev was spotted wearing earlier this year. The style, which starts as a reverse French braid at the nape and flows up to the crown in a voluminous topknot, only looks difficult to re-create. In fact, this easy updo is best when you're not striving for total perfection. On Kirbie: Club Monaco top.

And that's just the feature Elbaz wanted to focus on, by dressing up four of the bestselling eye shadow palettes and mascaras from the luxury beauty brand. "The real theme running through the collection is the eyes and roundness forms," Elbaz explains. "The bottles are so fabulously rounded that they were my inspiration. I wanted to create rounded shapes with a hint of humor." The collection hits Lancome counters next month, but you can see everything up close, when you keep clicking!

It seemed only appropriate that we ask The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev her secret to healthy skin — and looking totally refreshed — at an early-morning event for Origins' latest product, the GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer ($27). The brunette starlet just finished filming the fourth season of her hit CW series, and made a quick pit stop in NYC before officially embarking on her Summer adventures. Read on for what she revealed about her skin care routine, the weirdest beauty treatment she's tried (recently), and what she can't leave the house without.
1. On her skin care routine:
Nina spends much of her days on the Vampire Diaries set in full hair and makeup, so it makes sense that she takes her skin care routine very seriously. "Even when it looks like I'm not wearing much makeup, I totally am. So, as soon as I'm done on set — I don't even wait until I get home — I'll use a makeup wipe, wash my face, and then use a hot towel. I use it to let my skin breathe, let the pores open up, and then I put tons of moisturizer on."
2. On her mom's beauty advice:
Mother knows best, right? "My mom told me once that if you put an egg in your hair, it will make it supershiny." In fact, Nina's mom is onto something — our favorite DIY hair recipe masks serve as further proof.
