Molly Sims' Hairstyle: Tips From Her Stylist

How-To: Molly Sims's Wispy Updo

Messy, textured updos are all the rage these days, and Molly Sims was in on it at the recent CNN Heroes ceremony. Lorenzo Caldaron, a stylist with Warren-Tricomi Los Angeles, created this beautiful, easy look. The good news for you: he says that this look's quite easy, especially for a reader who's not trained in hair. "Make it look fun and flirty, softly pulled back and messy or use less texture for a more smooth, classic look," he said. "I's very versatile and up to you. If you think about it too technically and overwork it, it's going to go to a whole different place and look too done."

Kick off this look with clean, shampooed hair and get his step-by-step instructions when you


  1. Apply a polishing gloss (e.g., Redken Glass) to wet hair and blow dry until about 75 percent dry.
  2. Activate texture with a product like Fabricate and then just rough it up with your hands.
  3. Use a round brush and dryer towards the front fringe and sides of the hair so it's extra-smooth there.
  4. Build more texture with a one-inch barrel curling iron, making loose waves throughout the whole head and add a light hold hairspray (He used Workforce).
  5. Split the hair from ear to ear so there's an upper section and a lower section then, with that lower section, take two smaller sections and tie into a large knot and secure it with bobby pins – very freehand.
  6. Leaving the sides out, just lay the textured top part and build everything over that knot. The style's like a wider chignon shape back there so just cross, twist, play with it and do your own thing. His tip: use long hair pins because you'll need fewer and they're more secure.
  7. When you're all done pinning, set style with a firmer hold hairspray (like Warren-Tricomi Superhold Hairspray).

it's cute, but I think her face is too long to work this look. I love her dress, though, and I think she normally looks pretty...

I think Molly's adorable, but I agree with Fleurdelispink that this look is a little TOO undone.
