Hollywood waves have been a hairstyle staple for the famous and fabulous for decades. It's one of those perennial styles that can always be spotted on red carpets and runways alike because they look so impossibly glamorous.

As an undeniably evergreen hairstyle, a little update every now and then helps to keep Hollywood waves as modern and relevant as ever. Nothing feels quite as fresh as a slick wet look finish and as such, it's the perfect way to bring a classic hairstyle bang up to date. If you have somewhere fancy to be, why not give this style a try?

Get the look

Step one
Part your hair deep on one side and apply a heat protectant such as L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray. Curl your hair with a 1 1/4" iron, pinning each section up to cool.

Step two
Once all of your hair has been curled, pinned and cooled, let it all down and gently brush it through.

Step three
Smooth a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the hair on top of your head, working from your part downward. For a slicker finish, use a regular-strength gel instead.

Step four
Complete the look with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to set your style.

What do you think? Could this be your next party-ready hairstyle?
