How to get Grace Kelly's hair without going to a salon

There is much about Grace Kelly's style to admire -- her timeless, perfectly tailored clothes; her tasteful jewelry; her posture; her locution -- but the thing about her I've always most wanted to emulate (or, at least, could most realistically emulate) is her hair.

There are, unsurprisingly, no shortage of videos tutorials that come up when you search "Grace Kelly hair" on YouTube. But the reason I like Lillian Masie's adaptation best is because it's so relaxed and modern -- one that echoes the elegance of Kelly's signature hairstyle in her younger years (smooth, slicked back, with a curl at the bottom) without looking too retro.

Unfortunately, there's no super quick trick to getting the style, especially if you have lots of layers. Get ready for lots of pinning and curling -- and an end result that's worth the trouble.



Beauty tutorials are big on YouTube - a search for "makeup tutorial" and "hair tutorial" yields more than 5 million videos. In this weekly series, we put a mix of popular and under-the-radar tutorials to the test and show you what's best.
