It’s no surprise that Olivia Wilde arrived at the Oscars in style. The actress paired her strapless black Gucci gown with a ’70s-inspired updo—it was a timeless, effortlessly chic look that was perfect for the occasion.

If you love Olivia’s look as much as we do, then we have great news: Stylist Davy Newkirk shared a few tips on how he created the actress’ fun bun!

1. Start by rough drying hair using Wella Professionals Pearl Styler—especially if your hair is short like Olivia’s, this helps add texture.

2. Gather hair at the crown and secure with a bungee cord.

3. Tease ends to rough things up a bit more, then loosely twist hair around the bungee and secure with bobby pins.

4. To finish, lightly tousle at the roots around the bun, then spray with Wella Professionals Dynamic Fix hairspray for hold and shine.
