Get the Look: Brooke Charvet's 'Dancing with the Stars' Updo

With her flawless figure poured into a black one-shoulder crepe gown from Edition by Georges Chakra Monday night, Brooke Charvet glowed on the ballroom floor during
Dancing with the Stars
. But it wasn’t just the crystal-studded dress that turned heads; her hair, pinned neatly in an updo, was quite stunning, too.

So just like last week, we asked the stylists at Hotheads how to achieve her look at home. Just follow these steps from stylist Sheenon Olson:

1. Set the hair with a 1-in. curling iron, starting at the top and pinning the curls up as you go. For the super-shiny look that Charvet has, spray each section with lacquer right before heating it with the curling iron. Let curls set for at least 10 minutes before taking them down.

2. Charvet had her updo high on her crown. To get the best results, section the hair from ear to ear, then make one ponytail with the front section. Take the other section and include into the first ponytail (which acts as an anchor). This technique makes it easier to get a tight ponytail.

3. Now start bobby-pinning small pieces to create the shape you want. Remember, you are working for symmetry so it helps to alternate sides while you’re pinning. (Tip: It’s also a good idea to use hairpins as well as bobby pins because they are easier to remove without messing up the style.) Once you have the shape you want, secure with bobby pins and set the style with hairspray.
