Tousled Side Bun

Kate Beckinsale certainly brought on the glamour at last night’s Golden Globe Awards, and we loved how her undone chignon gave her ornate Zuhair Murad gown an effortless vibe. “With her wholesome, English rose good looks, Kate can get away with quite a bit of edginess,” said her hairstylist Sascha Breuer, who used Moroccanoil products to create the updo. “We went with a punk-inspired diva look that’s a bit different from her usual soft, flowing waves.” A solid foundation is key to making a great hairstyle last all night, so to start, Breuer added a root-lifting spray to Beckinsale’s damp strands to reate lift and volume before blow-drying her hair with a skeleton brush. “Use your fingers to create texture and additional volume,” he added. “Once hair is fully dry, separate into a horseshoe-shaped section between both temples and your crown, and clip the top area away.” Breuer then swept the bottom portion into a low side-pony at the nape of the star’s neck, and after securing with an elastic band, he wound the length into a messy bun. “Tug a few strands out to create naturally-falling bits, and to loosen the bun,” said Breuer. Careful backcombing with a bristle brush added more volume at Beckinsale’s crown, and after securing the top area with bobby pins, a final mist of hairspray kept the look in place.
