L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Freida Pinto recently jumped aboard the celebrity bob cut bandwagon and, ever since, she's been rocking her new haircut like a total pro. At the Santa Barbara Film Festival this week, the actress was spotted with her hair in a glamorous, vintage-inspired hairstyle, and we've been obsessed with it ever since!

If you love this look as much as we do, you can recreate it with the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with either dry or damp hair, create a side part with a tail comb. It doesn't matter which side you choose, just go with whatever feels most comfortable.

Step 2
Spray Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray evenly throughout. Run a wide-tooth comb from roots to ends to make sure you get good coverage.

Step 3
If you started with damp hair, blow-dry your hair 80% with the help of a paddle brush to smooth and straighten your strands. Then, switch to a small round brush to curl the ends and complete the blowout.

If you started with dry hair, use a flat iron to straighten your hair, then curl the ends. To do this, clamp a section of hair, roll the iron back over itself toward your head, then glide it down and off your hair.

Step 4
Gently brush your hair through to unify the curls into a sleek wave at the ends.

Step 5
Complete the look with a generous amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray. This will give your new 'do long-lasting hold, and it will help to keep frizz and flyways at bay.
