Charlize Theron's Hairstyle

Charlize Theron's scene-stealing beauty has never been more apparent than in her film Sweet November. In her role as a charming, free spirit, she captivates Keanu Reeves's ultraconservative character while stuck in line at the DMV. Ultimately, his infatuation turns to love, and who could blame him? Looks like hers could make even the hardest heart melt. If you'd like to steal a few scenes (and hearts) of your own and you have short, layered hair, follow these easy steps from celebrity stylist Laurent D., owner of the Privé Salon in New York City's Soho, to get Charlize's soft sexy look.

STEP 1 Wash hair with a body building shampoo. Towel-dry lightly and apply a leave-in conditioner. Spray a light volumizing mist all over the hair and comb through.

STEP 2 (For Curly Hair) To dry the hair, you will need to use a dryer with a diffuser. There are two methods of drying for this style. If your hair is naturally curly, simply hold the dryer over the hair in sections until dry. Do not move the hair at all. (This means don't brush it or run your fingers through it.)

STEP 2 (For Straight Hair) Using a dryer with a diffuser, start with the top sections of hair, twist a small section of hair around your fingers as you would if you were twirling your hair. Leave the hair wrapped around your finger and hold the dryer directly above it until that piece is dry. Continue this process for the whole head.

STEP 3 Emulsify a small amount of styling cream in the palms of your hands. Work through the sections around the face, gently separating the curls. Use your fingers to push the front middle section of hair off the forehead. Do not brush the hair; it will just make it frizzy. The goal here is a very "unset," tousled look.
