Kate Hudson’s “NINE” Premiere Hair How-To

Kate Hudson was like a little dash of summer in the cold city of London during the world premiere for her latest movie Nine.

At a premiere full of high-profile actresses, Kate’s look definitely helped her stand-out. Here’s David’s complete styling how-to.

    Step 1: Prep wet hair by massaging a dime-size amount of de-frizzing serum throughout. David used his David Babaii for WildAid Hair Polish.

    Step 2: Part hair into four sections—both sides and crown, leaving the nape area free. This gives you greater control and helps achieve the perfect blow dry.

    Step 3: Spray each section with a volumizing spray then dry straight, giving the ends a soft, slightly rounded finish.

    Step 4: French braid the fringe area to sweep hair back and away from the face, then spray the whole look with a light styling spray for a moveable hold.
