The great news is that you can definitely style your hair like Margot Robbie. Even better is the fact that it doesn’t cost a lot of money. All you need is a flat iron and a little practice. Her look for the Oscars might require a haircut if you have long hair, but it could probably be done with longer locks as well.

Once you’re ready to get started and your flat iron is heated up, start below the round of your head, or below your ear lobes. You then bend into the hair with a flat iron, so that you’re creating a little wave. It’s definitely not the same as eighty style waves, so try not to get too carried away unless that’s the look you’re going for.

What you’re going to do is bend the hair in one direction. Let the iron set for a moment or two so that it has time to set. Then you’re going to release the iron. Hold on to that strand though, because you aren’t done with it yet. Once you let go, you’re going to do the exact same thing, but this time in the opposite direction. 

Robbie’s stylist choose to go with Moroccan products on the hair once it was finished, but you can use what suits your hair and budget best. The style isn’t overly dramatic, but that’s all part of the charm.
