Kate Beckinsale never fails to turn heads. This weekend, she attended the third annual LACMA Art + Film Gala in California donning a strapless Gucci gown complimented by Veronica Lake inspired waves. Her stylist, Sascha Breur, gave me the 411 on how to get her touchable, sexy style. Step 1: Towel dry your hair and apply mousse for staying power. "To evenly distribute the mouse, use a wide toothed comb," Breur says. "Ensure that you spread the product right through to the tips of the hair to boost the energy of your curls with irresistible definition and virtually frizz-free shine."
Step 2: Use a large round brush and blow dry directing the nozzle upwards for added root-lift. Then, create a low side part and section your hair into pieces for curling.
Step 3: Use a medium size curling iron and work in sections all the way around your head rotating the way you curl – away from your face and then towards. Pin the curls up with hair pins allowing them to cool after each section and spritz with Wella Stay Essential Hairspray.
Step 4: When the hair is completely cool, release the curled sections, remove all the grips and smooth through with your hands to loosen the ringlets.
Step 5: Use a large soft brush gently brush through the curls to create smooth soft waves. "Don’t be attempted to over brush or the hair will become frizzy and loose its smoothness," he explains. "A few drops of Wella Oil Reflections will work wonders to add the right level of smoothness and glossy shine to your 'do."
Step 6: Use a lightweight finishing spray so it lasts all night.
