Kate Beckinsale consistently gets creative with her red carpet looks and manages to hit the right note every time. This mass of randomly placed twists, loops and braids paired with long sexy side-swept bangs is glamorous, yet has a slightly boho touch we love.

To duplicate Kate Beckinsale's whimsical style, begin with hair that has some wave or curl. For straighter hair, setting tresses on hot rollers will add the needed body and make styling a lot easier. Next, section out bangs or a three-inch piece along the front hairline. Then, backcomb hair through the crown for volume.

For the small braids, pull back two-inch sections from along the temples and plait each side, securing ends with hair elastics. For the twists, take three-inch sections under each braid and twist them, again securing ends with hair elastics.  Keep the braids and twists out of the way for a moment so you can style the remaining tresses. Finger comb all the hair back toward the nape of the neck, keeping as much volume through the crown as possible.

Next, loop one and two-inch sections of hair around your fingers and secure near the scalp with bobby pins. Concentrate the placement on one side, trying to take up as much room on the back of the head as possible. Finally, take the braids and twists and randomly wind them around on the back of the head, pinning them in place at intervals with more bobby pins. Once all the hair has been secured, take the bangs section and sweep to the side, spritzing with a little hairspray.
