1. Make a headband-wide section across the front of your hair and clip that out of the way. Take the remaining hair and clip that out of the way as well.
Celebrity hairstylist Jonathan Antin gave actress Julie Benz this red-carpet look for the 2013 Golden Globes.
1. Create a deep side part. Using a 1-inch curling iron, curl the hair that frames your face all in the same direction, holding the iron on each section for a few seconds to achieve the most crisp and defined curls, and spraying with hairspray as you go.
While Dita Von Teese's deep part and perfectly sculpted curls are similar to Benz’s look, the key here is height and stylist John Blaine’s expert instructions. Get out that teasing comb, and think 1950s housewife.
1. Mix two drops of hair serum with your favorite styling cream and evenly distribute throughout damp locks. (This will help soften your hair while adding extra shine and hold without stiffness.)
