The beginning of the fall TV season means new shows for you to relax with after work--and lots of extra work, press and red carpet appearances for celebs on TV. Case in point: “Hart of Dixie” star Rachel Bilson.

While in New York City for several appearances to talk about her new series, Rachel called in the services of celebrity hairstylist and founder of Hamadi Organics, Jamal Hamadi, to style her every step of the way. For her trip to Sirius studios in early October, Rachel worked a sexy, casual half-updo with plenty of height and polish. Hamadi gave MODERN the quick how-to for you to recreate this look for a client.

“I began by applying the Hamadi Shea Spray all over, beginning at the roots, and then blew her hair dry. Next I used a 1-inch iron and curled the ends. I took a section of hair from her ears and pulled them back, leaving the top out for last. Then I teased the top just a little using Batiste Dry Shampoo for more body, brushed it back and used the L'Oreal Elnett Hair Spray to seal the look.”
