At the Toronto International Film Festival, Kirsten Dunst wore soft, wavy layers with a sparkly hair accessory, and we loved the style so much, we got the complete breakdown from her hairstylist Marcus Francis! As it turns out, the polished look had some silver screen inspiration. "Feeling inspired by Cybil Shepherd in Paper Moon, Kirsten and I thought she portrayed a sweet and sexy woman, who was also classic," Francis told He used Leonor Greyl's Volumatrice Mousse ($44; on the star's damp strands, and created a deep side-part before blowing out the style. He then set sections into pin curls and misted them with L'Oreal Elnett Hairspray ($13; "Once you've finished setting the entire head, wait ten minutes and brush out the ringlets with a paddle brush," added Francis. Keeping the side part clean, he then pinned a section of hair at Dunst's temple, sweeping it across her forehead. A touch of Oribe's Supershine Light ($49; sealed the ends and tamed flyaways.
