Channeling very old Hollywood glamour, Wella Professionals Celebrity Stylist Andy LeCompte gave Penelope 1950s Grace Kelly finger waves. Here’s how Andy suggests getting the look:

1. Start with dry hair and use a small amount of Wella Professionals Natural Volume Styling Mousse at the roots.

2. Set hair in steam hot rollers by rolling hair straight back from the head. This gives hair texture and curl.  Use smaller rollers in the back to create a tighter curl, then pin hair underneath into a faux bob.

3. Lightly mist with Wella Professionals Dynamic Fix 45 Second Crafting Spray, then back comb and tease at the root. Brush out the finger waves into place and set with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray.
