Kate Hudson's Hair - Celebrity Get the Look - iVillage Beauty Hair

From her sparkling smile to her shining curls, Kate Hudson radiates a golden glow that has her destined for superstardom. If you'd like to light up a room like Kate and you have shoulder-length, moderately wavy hair, follow these simple steps from celebrity stylist Shirley Ching of the Bumble & bumble Salon in New York City.

STEP 1 After washing your hair, towel dry to remove excess moisture. A key to success in getting your hair to hold this style is in the correct use of product. Mist detangling spray all over the head and comb through to ensure even coverage. Apply thickening spray to the roots only and anti-frizz product only to the ends.

STEP 2 To dry the hair, flip your head upside down and use a blow dryer to dry the hair from the roots to the ends until completely dry. Decide where to part your hair. Kate's is down the middle, but this look works well with a side part as well.

STEP 3 For this step you will need a curling iron with a ¾-inch barrel. Working in sections, use a large hair clip to secure the top layers of hair. Start curling the lower sections first, then work your way up. To curl, clasp the ends of two-inch sections of hair in the iron and twirl it completely around the barrel. Repeat this process until the entire head has been curled. It's important to be consistent in the width and direction of the curls. If the curls look too uniform, use your fingers to separate some of them.

STEP 4 To finish, apply shine product to the hair starting mid-shaft and working down to the ends. It's important to keep a product like this off the scalp because it can sometimes make the hair look a little oily and weigh down the style. If your ends look a little flyaway or "fluffy," use a texturizing cream on this area only.
