Olivia Wilde Teaches Us a Lesson in Autumn Waves

Wondering how to convert your favourite beachy waved hairstyle into something smooth and sleek for Autumn? Look to Olivia Wilde for inspiration. At the Rush premiere in London, the actress wore defined, glossy waves that were more sophisticated than tousled. There are multiple ways to re-create the look at home.

First, prep the hair with a heat-safe hair spray like ghd Heat Protect Spray (£10) to make sure your hair is protected and to keep curls defined. Then wrap one-inch sections around a clampless curling tong or wand like the Cloud Nine Waving Wand (£100). You can also use a hair straightener to get the almost zigzag pattern, but beware of dents. Gently run your fingers or a wide-tooth comb through the curls to erase any separation between sections. Avoid brushing to maintain the most definition. Finish off the look with more hair spray and a touch of shine serum for that smooth shine on the ends. You can also take another note from Olivia's red carpet look and wear red lipstick for a hint of vintage glamour.
