While I haven’t yet been able to keep an appointment for the big hair makeover you all voted on, I did have some time on Saturday to whip out a braided hairstyle.

Kate Winslet Beachy Hair Tutorial Just in Time for Spring

Kate Winslet "Divergent" Los Angeles Premiere

Today marks the first day of spring, so what better way to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather (for the east coast, anyway) than with a beachy hair how-to. I love this natural-looking, messy-in-a-good-way beachy hairstyle Renato Campora created for Kate Winslet’s Los Angeles Premiere of Divergent. Here’s how to recreate it:

Step 1: Apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Volume Building Mousse, $6.50 on clean, wet hair.

Step 2: Apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion, $6.50, concentrating on the roots to create volume, and blow-dry your hair.

Step 3: Once your hair is fully dry, use a one-and-a-half-inch curling iron to create voluminous waves by wrapping your hair around the iron.

Step 4: After letting your waves cool completely, finished the look with John Frieda Luxurious Volume All Day Hold Hairspray$6.50 to add long-lasting volume to your waves.
