We're obsessed!

Paula Patton's hubby has been garnering a lot of attention recently — Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus' VMAs performance, anyone? — but Paula caught my eye with her adorable 'do here. I turned to Shannon Walsh, stylist at Boston's renowned Jeffrey Lyle Salon, for the step-by-step breakdown of the look. Have fun styling, ladies!

Get the look

  1. Start off by spraying a volumizer (L'Oreal Volumetry) at the roots in damp hair.
  2. Next, rough dry to get 70 percent of the water out.
  3. Take a medium-size round brush and with 2-inch sections, wrap hair on the brush and blow dry as if it was a curling iron set.
  4. Twist hair when pulling off the brush to create the curl and body on the ends.
  5. Then to make the "bouffant," part hair slightly to the side. Take a section from the front of the larger side, give it a good tease (keeping it neat) and pin with bobby pins.
  6. Finish off the style with a good hairspray (Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer) and enjoy!
