THE LOOK Bohemian curls
HOW-TO Kate’s stylist, David Babaii says to start by spraying wet hair with beach spray and scrunch the product into the hair (which is what he did for this look). Then blow-dry hair roughly and when it’s dry, split the hair into three parts: top, sides and back and then curl small sections within each part. “I use a one-and-a-half inch ceramic curling iron to create her classic Bohemian Beach Waves.” Finish with styling spray.
INSIDER TRICK “This style works best on hair that doesn’t resist being curly,” says Babaii. “If your hair is bone straight you shouldn’t attempt to force your hair to be unnatural.”

THE LOOK Long, Loose Curls
HOW-TO After washing, spray the hair with volumizing spray to give it some initial body. Flip your hair over and blow the hair half-way dry. Flip your hair back over and curl using medium rollers. Spray on a light hairspray and let hair cool. After a few hours remove the rollers and run your fingers lightly through the curls to loosen them up. Make sure to allow yourself enough time to wash, dry and let the curls sit in the rollers for a few hours so it will last all night.
INSIDER TRICK "If you don't like rollers, an alternative is to use your own fingers," says Daniel Fortunato of the Patrick Melville Salon and Spa. "Twist the hair and circle into a little bun and pin it up."

THE LOOK Silver eyes
MAKEUP ARTIST Lorrie Turk
HOW-TO Turk sparsely applied an illuminating foundation to Taylor's skin, blending it in with a Beauty Blender sponge and then used conealer to illuminate the under-eye area. On the eyes, Turk applied pale gray on the entire eye area, dark gray shadow from the outer corner into the crease, and frosty white to the inner corner of the eye "to add light and make the eye really sparkle," says Turk. She then used a flat liner brush to line the upper lash line, pushing the product into the lashes and applied several coats of black mascara to both the top and bottom lashes. Cheeks were layered with pink cream blush and petunia-pink powder blush. Lips were lush with a chubby pink-mauve pencil and cotton candy gloss.
INSIDER TRICK Turk started by putting primer on the face and eyelids-this step ensures better staying-power for the makeup.
THE LOOK Long thick curls with deep side part
HOW-TO Towel-dry washed hair until almost dry, then apply hair gel. Make a deep side part with a comb or your finger. With a two-inch curling iron, wrap large sections in the iron and hold for ten seconds and release.

THE LOOK Full, curly side style
HOW-TO Before blow-drying, add a texturizer to wet hair. Use a round brush to create lift at the root, says stylist Tom Brophy. Use a large curling iron to curl small sections around the entire head. "Start with the iron at the middle of the hair shaft, wrap the hair around the iron instead of starting with the iron at the end and curling up," says Brophy. Tease at the crown and then pull the hair to the side and secure with pins and hairspray.
INSIDER TRICK "Instead of using one size iron, use different size curling irons to add dimension to this look," says Brophy.
