How to Steal Busy Philipps' Hairstyle for Your Next Office Party

Don't expect Busy Philipps to pull a Kate Middleton and disappear now that she's announced there's a baby bun in her oven.
The Cougar Town actress embraced the spotlight last night while announcing the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations, showing off an excited expectant-mother glow—and maybe just a smidge of a baby bump!—in the process. (Squint hard, what do you think?)
And yet we weren't really even staring at her belly—we couldn't take our eyes off the actress' softly-curled half-up 'do. Philipps isn't shy when it comes to testing the hairstyle waters. One moment she's sporting a sharp center-parted style, the next a no-holds-barred fishtail halo. For last night's look, all we kept thinking was, "Man, how gorgeous would this hair be for an office party?"
It's sophisticated, super-youthful, and it photographs well—which is obvs the key for these sorts of shindigs. You definitely don't want co-workers chuckling about your bald-looking head in every picture. (Thanks, pulled-back ponytail...) Are we right or are we right?
Here's another angle:
When styling this 'do, make sure to form an "X" with your bobby pins—criss-crossing them one over the other as you pin back your tresses. This little trick will help keep hair in place all night, even if Carla-from-the-cubicle-over convinces you to down one too many champers. Finish with a spritz of gloss-enhancing hairspray for light-catching shine and extra hold.
