Easy red carpet hair you really can wear to the supermarket: Modern Mum Beauty Must Have

Easy red carpet hair you really can wear to the supermarket: Modern Mum Beauty Must Have

Stylist and beauty journalist Erica Davies reveals how to get an effortlessly tousled look that’s packs enough glamour for any occasion

My hairdresser recently told me that a tousled bob is still her most requested hair-style. Think Alexa's messy waves, or Taylor Swift’s much-copied wavy bob.

For red carpet season too – according to my meticulous online research – there’s been a real shift away from more formal up-dos, with stars like Emily Blunt, Jennifer Lawrence and Naomi Watts all embracing a much cooler, tousled look.

I love it and with the right products, I reckon I could turn my frizzy hair into a smoothed-out wavy look that I could definitely wear out to dinner with friends or equally to do the weekly shop.

Here’s how I achieved the look.

1: Washed hair using Head & Shoulders Smooth and Silky shampoo and Thick & Strong conditioner. I love the way this shampoo leaves hair post-wash – it’s shiny and easily brushed, which for me is key.

2: After towel drying, I spritzed my hair all over with Aussie Miracle Recharge Frizz Remedy. I had never seen this before and was really impressed. It noticeably reduced the cloud of frizz I often have around the scalp.

3: By this point, my hair was 75% dry and as it's naturally wavy, had started to dry into softer waves than the usual frizz. If your hair is straight, I would suggest using the Aussie Miracle Recharge and then scrunching with your fingers to promote a bit more movement.

4: I added a couple of drops of Pantene Smooth & Sleek Dry Oil with Argan Oil around the front section as I was going to blow dry this bit with a round bristle brush.

5: Blowing out the fringe so it's smooth and shiny, I gave myself a side parting and swept the fringe over my eye and tucked the other side behind my ear.

6: A couple more drops of Smooth & Sleek Argan Oil gave it a bit of separation, so it didn't look too 'done' and ta-dah – the perfect red carpet-worthy tousled bob!
