Get the look: Amy Adams' glamorous curls at the London Film Festival

Share this:

All eyes were on Amy Adams as she arrived for the premiere of her latest film Arrival at the London Film Festival on Monday night. The 42-year-old could have stepped out of old Hollywood, wowing in an elegant floor-length white gown. Her beauty look was equally as striking, with Amy opting for soft smokey eye make-up and matte pink lips, her auburn locks swept to the side and left down in tumbling curls.

Hairstylist Ken O'Rourke, the man behind Amy's gorgeous 'do for the night, has now revealed how he created her look - as well as sharing a handy step-by-step guide so that you can try the style yourself from the comfort of your own home.

Amy Adams wowed at the Arrival premiere

"Amy is blessed with thick, healthy auburn locks," revealed Ken, who is currently a brand ambassador for haircare brand Charles Worthington. "So I decided to give her 70s waves cascading down one shoulder to show off her Grecian goddess white dress."

Ken's step by step guide to recreating Amy's look:

Step one: On wet hair, layer in a texturising mousse such as the Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Body Booster Mousse to create volume, and the Express Blow Dry Primer to speed up your blow-drying time, while forming the main foundation for the curls.

Step two: Blow-dry your tresses using a three-inch bristle brush until they are completely dry.

Step three: Take a 1.5 inch curling tong and divide your hair into eight even sections.

Step four: Curl your locks, and then leave them to cool for about half an hour, before brushing them out using a bristle brush to soften the curls and reduce the risk of any flyways. If you want to give it a little hold with a touch of shine, try a spritz of hairspray such as the Charles Worthington Diamond Shine Hairspray.
