Hair How-To: Kate Hudson at the 2015 Academy Awards

Celebrity hairstylist and Brand Ambassador for ghd, North America David Babaii styled Kate Hudson for last night's Vanity Fair Oscars Party. Said Babaii, “I was inspired by her gorgeous and playful green dress. We wanted to create a relaxed, beachy wave to amp up the style.”

Get the Look:

  1. Said Babaii, "To create this look, I first dried Kate’s hair using the ghd air hairdryer and a round brush.
  2. "I then parted the hair down the center and divided into three sections: two in the front and one in the back. Starting with the section in the back, I took one-inch pieces and wrapped the hair around the ghd curve creative curl wand. I held each piece around the barrel for 10 seconds, then released the curl and stretched it out for 2-3 seconds until it cooled. I continued all the way to the top alternating the size and direction of each curl.
  3. "To finish, I ran fingers through the hair to loosen the waves and lightly misted hair with a light hold hairspray."
