How-To: Get Kate Beckinsale's Alluring Hair

Last night at the Allure party for Victoria Beckham, actress Kate Beckinsale arrived wearing her hair in a casual, low-slung bun with delicate braids weaved throughout. What a cool twist! Even though Kate wears hair extensions, (oh, c'mon, like you really couldn't tell by now), the best part about this look is that you don't need to have a lot of hair — or even thick hair — to re-create this style.

For step-by-step instructions on how to create this braided bun at home,


  • STEP 1: Hair can either be freshly washed or day old. If it's freshly washed, add a styling product for malleability and hold.
  • STEP 2: Pull your hair back into a low ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Gently pull out your bangs, or your shortest layers, and clip them to the side for the time being. Then, take three sections of hair from your ponytail and braid them tightly. Secure the ends with a small-sized elastic the same color as your hair.
  • STEP 3: Take the remainder of your hair, and section by section, twist, and tuck the pieces under the main ponytail elastic. Secure each section with a bobby pin. Do the same with the braids, but weave them around the bun a little bit so they are more visible. TIP: Be sure to hide the ends underneath the bun so that you don't see the individual elastics sticking out.
  • STEP 4: Use a large-barreled curling iron to curl your bangs or long layers. Mist your entire head with hairspray and you're ready to go!
