Get The Look: Dakota Johnson’s ‘Perfectly Imperfect’ Fifty Shades Darker Braid

Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend created Dakota Johnson’s amazing hairstyle at for the LA premiere of ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ last night.

He said, “For the Fifty Shades Darker premiere, we really wanted the focus to be on Dakota’s gorgeous dress. We decided to keep her hair out of her face by doing a long, textured braid in the back.”

“I started by spraying TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Root Boosting Spray to her damp roots and then blew her hair out with my mixed bristle round brush.”

“Once her hair was dry, I set the top mohawk section with duck bill clips to create volume. I then sprayed my paddle brush with Dove Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo and vigorously brushed all of her hair in the back for volume and texture.

“Once her hair had the perfect texture, I went in and twisted uneven sections of her locks into braids and twists. As I went along, I used dark bobby pins to keep the loose bits secured.”

“When I was happy with the plait, I secured it with a few Blax elastics. I then released the mohawk section from the duck bill clips and used a bit of Dove Absolute Curls Crème Serum to get a bit of shine on the front.”

“I topped this look off by pulling her front pieces back and securing it with dark scunci bobby pins. The result is a perfectly imperfect play on a plaited textured look.”

    It’s a bit messy for my taste.

    Pretty sure there is a buuunch of fake hair in there as well.

    ..”we really wanted the focus to be on Dakota’s gorgeous dress”… It’s funny b/c it looks like the statement braid is completely stealing the show from the colorless and design-less dress.
