Celebrity Get the Look: Anna Kendrick at 2014 Grammy Awards

As awards season continues, celebrities aren't holding back when it comes to setting hair and makeup trends! Our Awards Show Trend Forecast was spot on this season, as the side-swept style is helping stars all over Tinsletown score big with press and fans.

We've seen the look on stars like Sophie Turner, Sarah Hyland, Miranda Lambert, and we sure did love actress Anna Kendrick's take on this glamorous Hollywood style made new again. The young starlet paired this classic hair with a dress by Azzaro and a cuff by Joan Horig. Nick Penna, Creative Director of Boston-based blow-dry lounge Be Styled, loved the look too and broke down how to recreate this style with an easy beauty DIY how-to.

With over 15 years of experience as a stylist and regular contributor to NYC Fashion week, Penna thought the romantic side-swept look on Anna Kendrick was a showstopper last night. Since most of us can't afford a glam team to get the hairstyle for us, here's how to achieve it at home:

Start with damp hair and apply a volumizing mousse. "I recommend Kerastase Mousse Bouffante ($35)," Penna explained. "A deep side part is one of the hottest looks of the season and Anna and nailed it. Grab a wide-tooth comb and arrange your hair in a part that suites you, then blow-dry as normal. Be sure to add a little bit of volume while blow-drying to keep it smooth and sleek near the root."

Now for those luscious curls. "Once hair is dry, start to wrap small sections of hair around a 1 or 2-inch curling iron, making sure to only curl the bottom 3-4 inches of hair (depending on your hair length)," Nick instructed. "After you're done curling, bring your locks to the side furthest from your part and use bobby pins to pin middle sections of the hair to the nape of your neck."

"Finish with a good hairspray, like the Laque Dentell from Kerastase ($31), to keep the look in place and viola-you're red-carpet ready!"

Simple, yet so chic!
