We caught up with celeb stylist Nai’vasha Johnson to get all the deets, who said she was “inspired by old Hollywood. Serena has such a classic style, so we wanted to stay true to what she loves most, which is mega-glam.”

To get the look, she began by saturating Serena’s hair with Dove Care Between Washes Re-Styling Milk and combing through with a wide tooth comb to revive her natural-looking waves.

Then she parted hair down the center, she smoothed on about a handful of Dove Style + Care Curls Defining Mousse to add shine and sculpt curls. She then secured the hair into a low, loose ponytail using a bungee and bobby pins to shape her bun.

Nai’vasha finished the look with Dove Style + Care Compressed Micro Mist Extra Hold Hairspray to keep the bun in place throughout the night.
