Starting with wet hair and working in sections from the bottom up, Babaii blew out Kate's strands with the blow dryer and round brush. He then used the curling iron — on the ends of the hair only — to form random, subtle bends throughout. To finish, he flipped Kate's bangs with a round brush for that perfect amount of retro flair. The result was, according to Babaii, "very '60s but with a modern twist."
- Hairstylist David Babaii prepped Emma's hair with IT&LY Pure Style Mousse and then divided her hair into three sections: the top, sides, and back (leaving the nape portion free).
- Next, Babaii used a nozzled blow dryer and medium round brush to smooth the hair straight, working from the neck up.
- To finish, he took large sections of Emma's hair and wrapped the lower portions around a large barrel curling iron. Once the entire head was curled, Babaii spritzed Emma's strands with the brand's Pure Definition Hair Spray for hold and UV protection.
To get the look, apply the brand's Pequi Oil treatment to clean, wet hair. Blow-dry the hair, focusing on keeping it a tad messy to provide texture to the style. Next, wrap random sections of hair around a two-and-a-half-inch curling iron (Babaii used one from Revlon), alternating the direction of the curl for extra oomph. Now, simply sweep the hair and fringe into a bun for a classic coiffure with a modern edge.
He then parted her hair on the left at a slight angle and blow-dried with a large round brush. To prevent flyaways and add more shine, Babaii worked in a bit more Pequi Oil to the finished look. Want to snag a similar shade of golden blond like Kate? Babaii recommends the brand's Luxeblend Crème Hair Colour in Light Golden Blonde ($30).

Fresh from checking out the runways at New York Fashion Week, Kate Hudson headed to Toronto in the name of haircare products at the launch of David Babaii for WildAid Canada. Looks like David had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction, but that didn't stop him from smiling big with gorgeous Kate on his arm. Even after a night of partying and a flight up north, nothing stops Kate's bubbly personality.
It has been nearly a year since Kate Hudson announced that she was diving into the beauty business, and only now are we able to see the fruits of her labor. Kate, with stylist David Babaii, worked to create David Babaii for Wildaid. The 10-piece line currently consists of all the usual suspects like shampoos, conditioners, and pomades — with mousse and hairspray on the way — as well as a hair dryer and flat iron. The products are all in the mid-tier price range ($11.95 to $14.95) with the styling tools on the higher end of the scale ($119.95 for both the flat iron and the hair dryer), but the good news is that part of the proceeds will benefit the Wildaid wildlife protection program. I'm sold, how about you?
