Once prom season approaches, there’s no better place to find hair inspiration than the red carpet. If you’re starting to search for ideas, look no further than January Jones at the premiere of The Last Man of Earth. Her modern spin on the face-framing tendril was by far our favorite detail and it's a style that will easily soften up any updo on your big night.RELATED: How to Get Julianne Moore’s Oscar Winning Updo

To get the look, hairstylist Bridget Brager prepped the star’s air dried hair with Phtyo’s Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray ($29;, which she applied all over her roots. Using a flat brush and blow dryer, she then smoothed out her hairline, adding just a hint of volume all around.

“Next, I created a deep side part and also parted her hair from just behind the ear to meet the deep side part at the crown of her head,” Brager tells us, before clipping the top left and side section away. “I gathered the rest of her hair into a sleek bun just below the crown of her head using Oscar Blandi Pronto Instant Glossing Cream ($25; to smooth out flyaways and give a clean sleek look.”

After securing the bun in place, it was time for those sculptural waves. “With the remaining hair, I created pin curls by setting 3/4-inch sections of hair with a 3/4-inch curling iron,” she adds. “Once the set hair was cool, I brushed the hair down and toward her face and created a deep smooth wave effect.” Oribe's Superfine Hairspray ($33; finished off the look.
