We just adore Kate Beckinsale’s edgy, punk-inspired updo that she wore to the Golden Globes this year. Do you think she’ll go for an updo for the Oscars, or a soft flowing style – like she usually goes for?

Celebrity hairstylist, Sascha Breuer, helped create this stylish look for Kate using products from Moroccanoil, and we’ve got the how-to just for you. Follow these six easy steps to get a stylish updo like Kate Beckinsale.

Get the look

Step 1

Start by spraying Moroccanoil Root Boost directly on to the roots of damp hair. The spray will help add body and hold and it’s a great way to set the style in. It’ll also make hair more pliable and easier to work with.

Step 2

Begin blow drying the hair using a skeleton brush, and then use your fingers to create texture and additional volume. Once the hair is fully dry, separate into a horseshoe shaped section (the part between both temples & your crown area) and clip the top section away.

Step 3

Pull the bottom section into a low, side ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure with an elastic. Then coil & wrap the tail into a messy bun. You can even tug a few strands out to create naturally falling bits and to loosen the bun. Secure hair with bobby pins.

Step 4

Take the hair from the top section and backcomb the roots using Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Teasing Brush to maximize the volume at the crown and create a slightly disheveled texture.

Step 5

Secure the top section into the existing, loose bun with bobby pins.

Step 6

Mist the hair with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to add shine and long-lasting hold. Spray a little product onto finger tips and work it into the single strands to help define the pieces. Secure the final look with a few more pins and you’re good to go!
