We're obsessed!

We have a total crush on Minka Kelly's chic 'do. Find out why in this week's installment of Celeb Hairstyle of the Week!

Minka Kelly at the premiere for The Butler

Minka Kelly never seems to disappoint with her sexy-meets-sweet style and her rockin' 'dos, and her recent half-up-half-down style is no exception. Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend styled Minka Kelly’s hair for The Butler premiere in Los Angeles and shared his tips for stealing her style. Good luck!

Get the look

"For The Butler premiere, I wanted Minka's hair to be young, fun and sexy, so we decided to work with her hair's natural texture and fullness and go for a half-up hairstyle."

  1. Begin by applying a large dollop of the Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse to damp hair. Dry with a diffuser attached to your blow dryer to keep as much of your natural curl intact as possible.
  2. To get that extra bit of volume at the crown, take 2-inch sections of hair and spray the Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo at the roots, then back comb the roots for fullness.
  3. Next, pull the sides of hair to the back and secure with bobby pins to create a loose half-up hairstyle.
  4. Finish the look off by spraying Sally Hershberger Texture Blast all over and scrunching with your hands for hold and lots of texture.
