Her red carpet 'do was swept to the side and loosely curled for this fantastic look.
How to Do a Side Pony with Curls:
To get this look there are a few things to remember. One is the importance of not overdoing it on the hair product. Only spray the ends of your hair with hairspray to maintain a curl. Curl your hair with a large barrel curling iron or large hot rollers. Once the curls have curled and set get a clear hair tie (easy to find at any drug store) and tie your hair to the side at the nape of your neck. This way the focus is on your curls and not a distracting hair tie.
Make sure to keep the top of your hair loose and not strictly pulled back. It may take a few times to get the perfect pony. Then voila! One of the simplest and most elegant hair styles is complete. No pins or excessive work necessary.
