British beauty Kate Beckinsale always makes a stunning statement on the red carpet with her tumbling, chestnut-hued waves that are primped to perfection. Here, Sophisticate’s gives you the inside scoop on how to create Kate’s gorgeous sideswept curls—straight from the star’s hairstylist Sascha Breuer!

THE HAIR HOW-TO:
After washing and conditioning gently towel dry your hair and apply mousse through the hair, using a wide toothed comb to give this look staying power. 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. Blow-dry using a large round brush. Direct the nozzle upwards for added root-lift. Ensure the hairdryer isn’t too hot, which can cause it to dry out and break, giving you frizz. Once the hair is completely dry, create a low, side part for added glam and section the hair into manageable pieces.
Use a medium-sized curling iron to create lush, tumbling waves. Tong each section—working around the head and turning the tongs one way, then the other way, to roll as you work around. It is important to set the temperature of your iron according to the needs of your hair to avoid heat damage.

Starting at the front and working backwards, wrap sections of hair around a medium-sized curling iron and secure each curled section with pins or clips. Spray the pinned hair lightly with hairspray and leave to cool. Once the hair is completely cool, release the curled sections and smooth through with your hands to loosen the ringlets.
Use a large, soft brush and gently brush through the curls to create smooth soft waves. Don’t be tempted to over brush or the hair will become frizzy and loose its smoothness. A few drops of Wella Oil Reflections will work wonders to add the right level of smoothness and glossy shine to your hair. To finish, spritz tresses with hairspray for a long-lasting, flexiblehold. The result? A sexy, sophisticated style full of shine and bounce!
