In case you hadn't realised, Awards Season is now going full steam ahead as we count down the days to the Oscars which are due to take place on March 2, 2014. In the meantime, us invitation-less mere mortals can content ourselves with some easy red carpet glamor in the form of wavy hair and its many different incarnations.

So simple, so chic, wavy hair is the perfect way to add a little star style to any look with minimal effort. It's the kind of hairstyle that will only add an extra five minutes to your morning beauty regime and the resulting 'do can be worn everywhere from the park to the office to the grocery store and beyond.

Thought Kate Middleton had the monopoly on this kind of hairstyle? Think again!

Easy + relaxed

Channel your inner surfer-girl with some simple beachy waves. For this, you need to make like L'Oréal Paris spokesmodel (and real-life beach frequenter) Doutzen Kroes and work some tousled texture into your tresses.

All you have to do is spray your hair from roots to ends with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray, twist hair section by section and blow-dry. Then, finger-comb to break up the twists and you should be left a head full of tousled waves. Spray again and scrunch for extra hold.

Sleek chic

If you prefer a more polished finish, sleek waves are your best bet. This is an especially glamorous look and one that has been seen gracing the heads of Hollywood's finest for the best part of a century.

For this, you need to apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to dry hair and then curl the bottom two thirds with a wide-barrel curling iron. When you're done, brush your hair through for a smooth finish and fix with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

A big statement

Alternatively, go big and bold with your curls and whip up some ultra-volumized texture. Go for something that's halfway between sleek waves and cotton candy, and you can't go wrong!

Use a medium-barrel curling iron to curl the bottom two thirds of your hair and then lightly tease with a comb. Apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Lift Creation Spray to your roots for added height if needed.

After all that, you need never be short on wavy hairstyle ideas again. You can now tackle the world with a spring in your step, and in your hair!
