I adore hairstyles with a twist, and Malin Akerman caught my eye with this sleek and chic twist at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards recently. Isn't her 'do adorable, ladies? Justine Piecuch, stylist at Newburyport's shanti salon, is sharing her tips for getting Malin's look at home!

Get the look

"Malin's style is an old classic with a twist. Literally. It's a quick go-to and quite simple to DIY," Justine says.

  1. Start off by making a deep part in the hair to get Malin's look. Or you can create this from a center part if you so desire.
  2. Simply follow the hair line and roll toward the back. As you roll, you'll be gathering up more hair to add in. Clip this to secure for now.
  3. Follow the same steps for the other side and gather the two sides together into a bun.
  4. Secure with bobby pins.
  5. Spray with freezing hairspray to give this slicked back look its crisp finish.
