If you've ever tried to recreate an effortless updo you've seen on the red carpet, you've quickly found out that, well, the style actually requires a bit of work pull off. The latest look that's going to be worth the time: Catherine Zeta-Jones's messy updo.

At the Walpole Luxury Awards in London, the actress wore her hair pulled up in a wavy, undone updo that won't just work for all of this year's holiday events, it's also the perfect style when you're really pushing your blowout past its expiration date.

Before creating your updo, use a curling wand to touch up any fallen curls, and spritz a texturizing spray all over for a piece-y finish and grit, which help the style hold up throughout the night. Next, pull your hair up into a low twist and use bobby pins to loosely pin up any remaining short layers for a windswept effect like Zeta-Jones's.

The star completed her red carpet look with a silver metallic smoky eye, tons of mascara, and a rose nude lip.
