Hair Stylist Mark Hill Reveals How To Work Retro Red Carpet Waves Like Diane Kruger, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel
It’s true to say that here on the Grazia Beauty desk we are quite the fans of a Hollywood beauty look. Chic, timeless and oh so lady like there is simply nothing more glamorous than a set wave, perfectly arched brow and smoky eye combination. This season we saw the look at Micheal Van Der Ham, Issa and Monique L’Huillier, Victor and Rolf, where set curls were very much the order of the day.
And it seems that the inhabitants of celebsville have been paying attention to their catwalk references too. Diane Kruger, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel and Helen Mirren have all been out and about on the red carpet working the look, while Lydia Bright recently told Grazia Daily that she counts Hollywood icons like Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly amongst her style icons.
And what better time to try the trend as the party seasons arrives? Want in? Of course you do. We caught up with celebrity hair stylist Mark Hill to get a few tip and tricks on working the look. Get a load of his sound bites below.

2. Remember that you are not copying a look, but creating your own version. Make it modern by ensuring that hair has movement, varying the size of the wave or adding a slightly disheveled texture.
