Mimic her look with this how-to from Devin Toth, stylist at the Ted Gibson Salon in NYC:

Start with smooth, straight hair.

Gently wrap 2-inch sections around a large barrel curling iron. "This will simply enhance or set the blow out. It won't actually curl the hair," Toth told

Next, create a strong side part and brush the hair back to the side of your nape. Secure it in a pony tail. Twist the pony into a large figure-8 twist, and pin it in place.

Glide a finishing cream (Try: Ted Gibson Tame It Shine Lotion, $20) over the hair. Then, on the opposite side that the bun is on, pull out a strand from the front to frame the face.

"This makes the elegant bun less contrived," explained Toth.
