Rachel McAdams's Wavy Hair Tutorial

3 Quick Steps to Rachel McAdams's Effortlessly Sexy Waves

Rachel McAdams has tried a variety of hairstyles over the years (pink highlights included), but perhaps one of her best is her effortlessly sexy standby of buttery-blond waves. And that's just the look Rachel chose for the premiere of Passion at the Toronto International Film Festival yesterday. Celebrity hairstylist Thomas Dunkin for Sebastian Professional worked with the actress in styling the look, and he's shared the steps for re-creating the carefree coif at home.

  1. Dunkin began by applying the brand's Volupt Spray, a volumizing spray-gel, to the roots of Rachel's damp hair, followed by Thickefy Foam (both available at salons) on her ends.
  2. He then twisted random sections of hair while blow-drying to create texture and lift throughout.
  3. Using a large-barreled curling iron, Dunkin curled random sections of hair to form an uneven wave pattern. A few spritzes of soft-hold hair spray gave the style a light and airy finish.
