Evan Rachel Wood boasts balanced hair

Evan Rachel Wood's new pixie crop is "the perfect balance" of masculine and feminine, according to her hair stylist.

The actress is famed for her ever-changing tresses, and recently stepped out showcasing a new pixie-crop 'do.

Evan is starring in Ides of March alongside George Clooney, and wowed at the Los Angeles premiere this week. Her locks were teased into subtle waves for an effortless glam look.

Evan's hair stylist Marcus Francis has described the edgy style.

"[It's] the perfect balance of masculine and feminine," he told "[It's a] combed out finger wave with a David Bowie twist."

Marcus has described how to achieve the look at home. The expert advises prepping the hair thoroughly before attempting the style.

"Prep damp hair with a volume spray blow drying with your hands to manipulate volume at the roots. In the back, direct the hair down; on the sides, use your fingers to direct the hair back - keeping a piecey texture," he explained.

When the hair is partially dry, Marcus advises to lightly spritz with a tousled wave spray to "thicken the look and feel of the hair".

Next, Marcus has revealed how to create the glam waves. The tresses expert says the secret lies in the direction you curl the pieces of hair.

"With the end of a tail comb, make a deep side part starting at the arch of your eyebrow. Starting at the part, wrap small sections of hair using a 3/4 inch curling iron. Moving toward the other eyebrow, your next row of sections will alternate the direction of the curl. This emulates an imperfect version of a finger wave," he said.

"Continue this alternating curl pattern until you've finished the top side section. At the crown of the head, wrap the hair as you did in the beginning, alternating about three rows down."

To finish the look, Marcus advises using your fingers to break up the curls. He recommends using a hairspray for great hold.
