Cate Blanchett is seen here attending the premiere of ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ in Sydney, Australia. And Cate may not look like she has been uber styled, but she looks glamorous as ever. Cate has gone with a very simple hairstyle for this event, and is wearing her generally fine and straight hair down for the evening in a look that requires little maintenance or styling.
The key to this look is once again in the cut, and with fine hair you want to go for a cut that has enough texture to give your hair the illusion of body and movement. Volume is not necessary here as with the right cut you can finish with a look that is simple, but as you can see with Cate, very sleek and sexy. With a textured and layered cut, you can enjoy minimal styling, as if the cut is done right, you can simply wash, blow dry and go.
To maximize your look for a formal event or, with Cate a red carpet event, you can blow dry with a flat paddle brush. If you need a little more of the sleek factor, use a wide flat iron to smooth your hair down elegantly. Spritz on some anti-humectant after one go with the flat iron, and then seal in the hair serum with another run with the flat iron. The end result will be a sleek, shiny finish on a style that has plenty of movement.
