L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Liya Kebede is one of the many famous and fabulous currently enjoying the Venice Film Festival in Italy. This is great news for us because it means we get to see the internationally renowned model show off her glamorous layered hairstyle in the Mediterranean sunshine. (Fyi, if you're thinking about swapping a blunt cut for something new, you might just have found all the motivation you need...)

Of course, we just had to figure out exactly how Liya gets her hair to look so good and, after studying her red carpet look, we figure that it's mostly a combination of natural-looking movement and a glossy finish. Fortunately, these things are easily replicated with the right cut and products to style it with!

Lift your style

Layered cuts remove bulk from the ends and mid-lengths of the hair which prevents the style from looking and feeling weighed down. In turn, this leaves the longest layers plenty of room to move, helping to showcase waves and curls.

To get the look, ask your stylist to keep the length while reducing the volume of hair at the ends. Make sure you explain your desired style as clearly as possible and then discuss with them where the layers should be to work best with your face shape and hair texture.

Get glossy

Once you have the cut, you need the high-shine finish to go with it. In order to make this happen, your haircare routine should involve regular conditioning and frequent deep-conditioning masks to help replenish lost moisture and nutrients. Keeping your hair hydrated plays a big part in maintaining elasticity and preventing breakage and split ends... which are anything but glossy!

When you have your haircare regimen sorted, you can enhance your hair's natural shine with L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. This will make hair appear shinier while eliminating frizz and flyaways. Similarly, Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray will add shine and give you long-lasting, flexible hold.

That's it! Getting your hairstyle looking red carpet ready isn't so difficult after all...
