A-lister for a day: The full Hollywood treatment from Kate's stylist

Create a small pony tail at the nape of your neck and secure in place using a small hair band. Wrap a small section of hair around the hair band to disguise it, and secure in place using a grip. This will eventually form the bun.

Alternating hair from the left and right sides, wrap and twist small sections of hair over and around the hair band. Use the natural form of the hair waves to help bend the hair into place.

As the bun begins to build, you can gently backcomb small sections of hair for volume. It’s important to use a bristle brush after backcombing the hair so it looks smooth and glossy rather than rough and matted.
