FX's "The Americans" Season One New York Premiere - Inside ArrivalsOn Saturday, hairstylist Brian Magallones created Keri Russell’s modern take on a classic 50’s look for the New York premiere of “The Americans.”

Keri walked the red carpet wearing pair of leather pants and suede top by Alexander McQueen.  “I wanted her hair to look glamorous and appropriate for the red carpet, yet still modern and edgy to complement what she was wearing,” said Magallones.

To achieve this look at home, follow these four simple steps:

Step 1: Start by taking 2 inch sections of hair and curling them with a curling iron and pinning them up in pin curls. As you are curling, spray each section with Aveda Volumizing Tonic to add volume and hold. Use a 1 inch curling iron around the face for a more defined wave and a large 1 ¾ inch iron for the rest of the head.

Step 2: Once the pin curls are cool and set, remove each pin curl and flat iron the ends. The straight ends are what give this look that modern edge.

Step 3: Next, create a deep side part for drama, and brush the hair to relax the curl and shape the wave around the face.

Step 4: To finish the look, run some Aveda Brilliant Emollient Finishing Gloss through to add shine, and add a light mist of Aveda Control Force Hair Spray to hold it in place.
