Hailee Steinfeld was one of our favourites at the 2017 Oscars. Though her look was simple it also had an air of elegance and maturity beyond her 20 years.
Her Ralph & Russo Couture gown was sheer elegance, and when she turned we were entreated to two ballerina buns down the back of her head that sat atop each other. They mirrored the two rosettes on the back of her gown.
Celeb stylist Chris Appleton said that he took inspiration from her frock in order to create this sleek updo style. “We went for a bold style to compliment the mixture of classic and modern vibe given from her gown.”
Here’s how to create the look.
Prep clean wet hair with TONI & GUY Prep Heat Protection Mist. Section your hair and blow dry it backwards and away from your face using a paddle brush.
Once dry, section off the top half of the hair and gather the lower half into a ponytail at the back of the head.
Then apply TONI & GUY Style Spray Wax throughout the top section for a high-shine effect and begin curling hair using a 1-inch curling iron.
Once your hair is cooled, gently brush the curls out and join to the existing ponytail.
Wrap sections of hair from the pony tail in a clockwise motion above and below, twisting into a flower shape. Secure with pins.
Set the look with TONI & GUY Medium Hold Hairspray.
