For the recent premiere of Rock the Kasbah, actress Kate Hudson stunned on the red carpet in a glitzy, gold sheath dress by Balmain. To complement her glamorous look, David Babaii, Brand Ambassador for ghd, North America opted for a simple yet stunning hair look. "I wanted to create a chic, sleek and effortless look to compliment Kate’s personality," said Babaii. The final result? Super shiny, chic, cascading waves. Recreate the look with Babaii's how-to, below!

Get the Look:

  1. Says Babaii, "I applied MATRIX StyleLink Smooth Setter Smoothing Cream on towel-dried hair and combed through, then applied Matrix Smooth Setter Serum throughout Kate’s hair and dried her hair using the ghd air™ hairdryer and ghd ceramic vented radial brush size 3.
  2. "I then parted the hair down the center and divided into three sections: two in the front and one in the back. For additional heat protection I used a spritz of MATRIX SyleLink Heat Buffer Thermal Styling Spray and then, starting with the section in the back, I smoothed hair with the new ghd platinum™ styler. [The styler] features ghd’s tri-zone™ technology, which allows me to style hair at the optimal temperature of 365 degrees without causing extra damage to the hair and to ensure the style lasts longer with added shine. With the rounded edges on ghd’s platinum™ styler I was also able to create subtle bends at the ends of her hair to create effortless waves.
  3. "Finally, I used a dime-sized amount of the MATRIX StyleLink Gloss Booster for added shine and the MATRIX StyleLink Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray to complete Kate's look.”
