On April 23, actress Kate Mara attended the CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards in Las Vegas with her Fantastic Four co-stars Miles Teller, Micheal B Jordan, and Jaime Bell. The group accepted the event's "Ensemble Award" before presenting a preview of their highly-anticipated film, which will hit theaters this summer!
Red carpet style
Personally, we love seeing Kate walk the red carpet! The sartorially adventurous star regularly brings forth fresh, fashion-foward looks to inspire, and her appearance at CinemaCon was no exception! This time around we were particularly impressed with Kate's romantic updo, which proves that short hair can still beversatile and glamorous!
If you're currently rocking a bob, or similarly cut short style, then this one's for you! Here's how to recreate it at home...
Get the Look
Starting with dry hair, use a small barrel curling iron to create soft curls all around your head. Work in small sections and always mist the hair with heat protection spray before letting it anywhere near the styling tools!
Once the curls have cooled, use a wide tooth comb to gently brush through them, softening the look. Use a tail comb to create a side part.
On the side of the part, use your hand to smooth the hair back, gently twisting it a bit as you go to give the hair more hold and texture. Add a pin or two to secure the hair at the back.
On the opposite side, section off a small piece of your "bangs" and leave them loose. Then, grab the remainder of the hair and use the same motion as in the previous step to smooth it back. Join all of the hair at the back and twist into a little bun. Secure with pins as needed.
Mist your new style with strong-hold hairspray to make it last!
