How to get America Ferrera's elegant half-up hairstyle

America Ferrera looked pretty and polished at the premiere of her new movie End of Watch, in Toronto, Canada this past Saturday. The actress wore a trendy yet classic form-fitted black dress, paired with gold pumps and a small clutch. I love that America chose to wear her hair in a stylish half-up style. The hairstyle has become super hot this season and is a great way to turn a simple style into a sophisticated 'do. Check out these four easy steps to get the look!

  1. Start off by applying an anti-frizz serum like John Frieda Frizz Ease Sheer Solution Lightweight Frizz Control to damp strands. Before blow drying, attach a nozzle to your blow dryer to help concentrate the heat to specific areas of your head. Then using a round, boar bristle brush, blow dry hair by directing the flow of the nozzle from roots to ends for a smooth and straight finish.
  2. Using the tail of a rattail comb, separate the front of your hair from the top of your ears over the crown.
  3. Gently tease the front section using a comb or teaser brush like Spornette Little Wonder Brush to give the front of the hair some height. Then smooth, brush, and pin back with small bobby pins.
  4. To help the height last all night, spritz hair spray, like Garnier Fructis Style Extreme Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray, to hold the style.
