InStyle: Stylist Secrets to Our Favorite Celebrity Updos

Amy Adams' Updated Marcel Wave

Beauty term of the day: the Marcel wave. Similar in appearance to the finger waves taking the red carpet by storm, a Marcel wave was invented by hairstylist Marcel Grateau in the 1870s by using curling tongs to speed up the setting process; a technique Amy Adams took into 2013 with her updo at the Golden Globes. Her stylist Laini Reeves took inspiration from Old Hollywood and the 1920s Art Deco movement to give the classic look a new spin. She started by brushing hair into a side-part, and while rough-drying, Reeves placed a clip in the spot where she wanted the wave to begin. A mist of Moroccanoil's Glimmer Shine Spray ($28; for locations) added dimension, then Reeves used a large crimping iron to form the wave, working in two-inch vertical sections that began at the corner of the eyebrow. "After making a ponytail with a hair band, I twisted around my fingers and rolled the style into a little bun, supported with gold bobby pins," she said. "Once the bun was made, I could decide how loose or messy to make it. I decided to keep it airy for a textured, modern look." A final spritz of Moroccanoil's Luminous Hairspray Medium ($23; for locations) added the finishing touch.
