We didn't see Elizabeth Olsen on the Academy Awards red carpet last night. But she did attend the Vanity Fair shindig afterward, with hair prettied up by lovely celeb stylist Mark Townsend (advocate of the gentle blowout), the spokesperson for Dove haircare.

To get this soft, easy and youthful look, start with clean, damp hair. From roots, evenly distribute a generous blob of mousse, such as Dove Style + Care Nourishing Amplifier Mousse, and blowdry.

Comb through a 3-inch section of hair, spray with a flexible-hold hairspray, and, at about the mid-point of the section, wrap it around a 2-inch hot curling iron. Repeat in sections all over, and spray with a texturizing hair spray.

Rub a dime-sized bit of shine serum, such as Dove Style + Care Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum, between hands, then rake fingers through hair to loosen the waves. Finish with an all-over mist of extra-hold hairspray.
