Top stylists know how to perfect an A-lister’s look so that it screams red-carpet ready from every angle. We got the scoop from celebrity hairstylist Davy Newkirk on how he turned Kim Kardashian’s golden tresses into romantic, retro waves.
“Kim’s dress and jacket combination was a classic Hollywood look with modern flair, so that’s what we wanted to do with her hair,” says Newkirk. “It’s Hollywood glam, but with a relaxed, touchable texture.”
Newkirk says that any face shape or hair color could work with a variation of this style, but that Kim’s blond shade really added depth. “And the layers around her face really accentuate her natural beauty.”
How To Get The Look:
Prep your hair with a lightweight volume-enhancer such as Pantene Pro-V Volume Triple Action Mousse, which can be applied to damp hair (focus on the roots) before blow-drying, scrunching or air-drying for mega fullness. $5, target.com
Blow-dry your hair to the side with a medium-sized round brush. Then, using a 1¼-inch curling iron, curl 1-inch sections starting at the nape and working up the head. Around your face, curl some sections over and some under for dimension. Secure curls with pins and let them cool.
Remove the pins and lightly brush your hair out until you get the shape that you want. Set the look with a sheer, medium-hold hairspray.
