Canadian darling Rachel McAdams has been romping it up all over Europe promoting her blockbuster Sherlock Holmes. The blonde beauty rocked new looks in every city, thanks to her stylist Thomas Dunkin, who works with Sebastian. Our favourites are her up-swept ‘do in Madrid and uber-glam finger-waves in Berlin. Get your own 40’s-inspired locks with these tips from Dunkin:

1)     Begin by saturating damp hair from root to tip with Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray

2)     Blow-dry your hair with a medium-sized round brush, then set your whole head in medium-sized Velcro rollers

3)     Let the rollers cool for 5-10 minutes

4)     Remove rollers and use a one-inch curling iron to curl hair in small sections, beginning at the root

5)     Gently brush through hair and use large clips to define the waves where they naturally indent

6)     Spray hair with Sebastian Professional Shaper Zero Gravity hair spray and leave to set for another 10 minutes

7)     Finish by removing the clips and shaking out your hair for an easy, sexy look
