Gaby Espino brought along a little bit of rock 'n' roll with her to the Premios Tu Mundo awards last night!

The 36-year-old Venezuelan belleza worked the carpet in a yellow mini dress and sleek hair. Espino's hairstylist, Isaac Mesa, revealed that the actress wanted to do something different than what she normally goes for and bring a modern, rocker-chic look to the blue carpet. Mesa says he was inspired by the wet hair trend we've been seeing on the runway.

Want to try it out yourself? Follow these steps to recreate her hairstyle at home:

STEP 1: Start with damp hair and prep using the L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blowout Heat Spray ($4.99) all over to create volume and protect hair from heat damage.

STEP 2: Separate your hair into three sections (one on top and two sections split down the middle in the back). To create volume on the top section of your hair, use a palm-size amount of L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Injecting Mousse ($4.99) and apply it close to the roots teasing it with a rat tail comb.

STEP 3: Use a round brush to blow dry the hair pulling downwards.

STEP 4: Once the blow dry is complete; apply L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Extraordinary Oil ($6.99) to the ends. The oil will allow the ends to look soft and add a subtle shine.

STEP 5: Create loose beachy waves or as Isaac calls them “mermaid waves” using a ¼ inch curling iron all over your hair, starting from the mid-shaft to the ends.

STEP 6: Finish the look by spraying L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray ($4.99). To give the front of your hair that sleek, wet-hair look, tease and spray the hair back in small sections

TIP: To achieve a chocolate brown similar to Gaby’s luscious locks, use the L'Oréal Paris Mousse Absolue in Pure Dark Brown ($14.99).
