Paranormal Activity 2 which resumes spooky hauntings is directed by Tod Williams and produced by Akiva Goldsman (Jonah Hex, The Losers) and Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity) for Paramount Pictures.

Hair Styling Tips: Katie's brunette based hair has been highlighted with splashes of lighter and darker chocolate to provide lush shine and movement to her style.

Her current hairstyle can work either worn down in tousled waves or pulled up in classic ponytails or top knots. The scream queen looks great with her hair both up or down.

How To Recreate Hairstyle: Start with a shoulder length style with precision cut layers to add movement throughout the interior of the hairstyle.

Follow the steps below to style:

1. Cleanse hair with favorite washing method (Shampoo, Diluted Shampoo, Conditioner Only or Water Only) in lukewarm water. 2. Rinse well and apply rinse out conditioner. Detangle in the shower with a wide tooth smooth comb. Work from the ends up to the top. When you've detangled from the roots to the ends finish with a cool/cold water water rinse. 3. Towel blot. Apply desired leave-in styling/conditioning cocktail according to your type, texture and length of current hair. Distribute through hair with fingers or smooth detangling comb. 4. Create desired part before separating hair into two-inch sections. 5. Use a vent style brush for lots of lush volume. Lift each section at the root and direct air from a blow dryer with concentrator up the hair shaft from ends to roots.

Note: If you prefer, use a round brush. 6. When hair is completely dry separate hair into one inch sections. Use a wide-barrel 2" iron to curl sections of the hair from mid-shaft to the ends. Roll each section away from the face. Hold a few sections and then release.

Note: The smaller the curling iron and size of the strand, the tighter the resulting curls.

7. Take newly curled strand and roll around your finger. Pin against the scalp to cool and set. Spritz with styling spray. Repeat around the head. 8. When hair is completely cool unpin all the curls one at a time. 9. Bend over at the waist and shake your head to loosen curls. 10. Lightly coat fingers with shine serum, spray or cream. Run through strands to break up curls. You may optionally lightly brush through curls with a 100% boar's bristle paddle brush to deconstruct and loosen. 11. For added volume at the crown lightly backcomb and smooth. 12. Finish with a spritz of hairspray. Lightly spray the entire head.

Take Katie's hairstyle from day to night by adding a glam headband or hair clip.
