Liv Tyler looked gorgeous last night on the red carpet. Her skin was pale, yet slightly dewy and radiant. Her makeup was minimal, and her hair looked relaxed in loose, effortless sexy, beachy waves.

I love a girl who can look comfortable at a big-time Hollywood event, don't you? If any of you are interested in re-creating this hairstyle at home, all you'll need is a product that provides slight hold, a hair dryer, a curling iron, and a wide-toothed comb.

For step-by-step directions,


  • STEP 1: After you wash and condition your hair, gently towel dry and get rid of snarls and tangles by using a wide-toothed comb. Either get dressed or apply your makeup so that you hair has time to air-dry a little bit.
  • STEP 2: Apply a texturizing styling product such as Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray to your damp hair from roots to ends. Tip: Keep in mind that if your hair is slightly curly or thick, you'll want to apply product while your hair is still very wet, fresh from the shower. Also, if your hair is oily, only apply product to the lengths and ends, avoiding your roots.
  • STEP 3: Once you've applied the product, it's time to dry your hair. Set your hairdryer to the coolest, lowest setting and tousle hair until it's dry.
  • STEP 4: Since this is a sleeker version of the typical wavy, (slightly frizzy) beach hair, you'll want to add shine and refine the waves. Take a curling iron and use it like a flat-iron on the roots of your hair to make it smoother. As you get a third of the way down, curl hair around the barrel and let it sit for about 10 seconds. When you are finished with your entire head, shake out the curls, finger a few back into place and mist your entire head with a light-hold hairspray.
