In the new film adaptation of The Great Gatsby Isla Fisher plays discontented wife and mistress, Myrtle Wilson; spotted at the Prada-Gatsby cocktail party, she seemed okay with the life. Her mod-inspired ensemble is fabulous, and her hair is its perfect match. Her beautifully symmetrical face suits the center-part, while layers hang over her cheeks, framing the strong bone structure of Fisher’s face. Mostly, we love the thick, lush spirals that sway this way and that. With curling wands making it easier to make such shapes at home, this is a look anyone can do. To find out how, click style notes.

Step: Towel-dry hair to damp. Cocktail volume foam and styling whip and add a few drops of shine luxe oil into the mix. Work through hair, roots to ends.

Step: Use a large boar bristle round brush to blowdry hair with lots of body, lots of smoothness. The more volume you make around the crown area, the more it will look and feel like a mod-inspired, sixties style.

Step: With hair more or less dry, make a center-part. For most, just off-of-center is better as only perfectly symmetrical faces suit a perfectly centered part.

Step: Apply protective thickening lotion to mid-lengths and ends. Use a curling iron or wand to make big, thick, wide spirals that swing back and forth in romantic ‘C’ shapes.

Step: Mist finished style with primp working spray for extra texture and body, hold and shine.
