Joan Allen at the 2010 SAG Awards

GET THE LOOK: On Saturday, January 23, 2010 at the Shrine Auditorium in LA, Hollywood honored its own top talent at the 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries, for her role in Georgia O’Keefe, Joan Allen sparkled and shone on the red carpet. Sebastian Stylist Design Team member Thomas Dunkin crafted the actress’ soft, cascading waves that gracefully grazed her shoulders and complemented her overall look.

To recreate this A-list style at home, Thomas shares these step-by-step instructions:

1. To begin, apply Sebastian Professional Taming Elixir to slightly damp hair
2. Blow-dry hair straight to give the hair a smooth, even base to work on and part slightly to the left of center
3. Once dry, use a ¾-inch curling iron to wave the hair by starting at the nape and taking 2-inch sections of hair and leaving them loose to drop slightly

4. Apply step 3 to whole head except for a 2-inch section around the front to the top of the ear
5. Use a ½-inch curling iron on this remaining section and pin curls back using very small blonde matte bobby pins, continuing into the front for a slightly smaller wave
6. Take random pieces of hair and pin them back, allowing pieces to fall out softly giving a touch of looseness to the hairstyle
7. Finish the look with Sebastian Professional Zero Gravity hairspray to give a gentle but very sufficient hold on the hair
