Get The Look: Jourdan Dunn’s Met Gala Cornrows

Celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway worked with Jourdan Dunn for the ‘China: Through The Looking Glass’ Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 4) in New York City.

“I was inspired by the cut outs and crochet lacing on Jourdan’s Burberry dress. It inspired me to mimic the pattern by designing cornrows going on a diagonal and while also embracing Jourdan’s natural hair texture with a great heat free hairstyle. I finished off the look by putting it in a modern ponytail.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Lacy prepped Jourdan’s hair with Head and Shoulders Moisture Care Co-Wash to help lock in moisture into her hair before adding the braids.

After blow drying her hair with a Harry Josh Pro Blowdryer, Lacy braided Jourdan’s hair using a little Oribe Rock Hard Gel to help with frizz.

Once Lacy was done braiding she finished off with a little Shine Serum with Argan Oil by Pantene.

Get The Look: Kate Bosworth’s Part Braided Part Bun Coachella Hair Style

unnamed

Bridget Brager worked with Kate Bosworth for the 2015 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

“The inspiration for Kate’s festival hair was a nod to the 90’s half up half down, grunge chic, slept in hair with a twist (or a braid!).” said Bridget.

Bridget explains how to recreate this look.

“Starting on second day dry hair, take a small section (no larger than the width of the tip of your ring finger) of hair where you would normally have a centre part. This section should end at the crown of your head, just before your head starts to curve.

Once this section is created, begin to make a cornrow braid towards your forehead. Finish the braid where your hairline stops on your forehead and make two sections by splitting the third strand of the braid. To secure the braid, use a small bobby pin. Push the pin up the middle of the braid as flat to the head as possible. Split the lengths of the hair around the face to create framing.

Next, sprinkle Kevin Murphy Powder Puff to lengths of hair for added texture. Then gather hair, starting from the top of the ears, back in to a half up half down knot. Secure with a clear elastic band. Let any pieces around the face fall down to tuck behind the ears.

Finish the look using Bumble and bumble Does It All Hairspray.”

Get The Look: January Jones’ Clean Modern ‘The Last Man On Earth’ Premiere Hair

"The Last Man On Earth" Los Angeles PremiereCelebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager worked with January Jones for the premiere of ‘The Last Man On Earth’ on Tuesday (February 24).

“Our inspiration was clean, modern, soft structure,” said Bridget.

Here’s how to get the look.

She prepped January’s air dried hair using Phtyo Volumizing Spray at the roots, on the top, and on the sides of her head.

Using her Bumble and bumble Boar Bristle Flat Brush and her Harry Josh Blow Dryer, she smoothed out her hairline and added a bit of volume to her hair.

Next she created a deep side part and also parted her hair from just behind the ear to meet the deep side part at the crown of her head. She clipped the top left and side section away. She then gathered the rest of her hair into a sleek bun just below the crown of her head using Oscar Blandi Pronto Instant Glossing Cream to smooth out flyaways and give a clean sleek look. Using hair pins to hold the bun in place.

With the remaining hair, she created pin curls by setting 3/4 inch sections of hair with a 3/4 inch curling iron. Once the set hair was cool, she brushed the hair down and toward her face and created a deep smooth wave effect.

To finish using Oribe Superfine Hairspray once all over.

Get The Look: Allison Williams’ Michael Kors Braided Hairstyle

Allison Williams Hair

Celebrity hairstylist Rebekah Forecast worked with Allison Williams for the Michael Kors Fall 2015 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Wednesday (February 18).

When describing her beauty inspiration, Rebekah said, “Allison has a strong sense of personal style so she always has great ideas for beauty looks. We drew inspiration from her outfit and, based on the proportions, we knew we wanted to keep the hair back.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Beginning with clean, towel-dried hair, Rebekah applied Kerastase Resistance Mousse Volumifique from the mid shaft to the ends of the hair and Serge Normant Meta Lush Volumizer to the roots.

Next she blow dried the hair straight and created a centre parting. She also used a flat iron to remove any waves and applied a bit of Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray.

She then pulled the hair back into two sections from mid ear to just under the crown and plaited the sections, creating a fishtail braid. She ran though the back with a flat iron again to keep the look as sleek as possible.

To cover the elastic and add a sweet (but not too sweet) touch, she tied a leather bow to the end of the braid. She finished with Shu Uemura Art of Hair Essence Absolue on the ends for shine.

Get The Look: Gigi Hadid’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Celebration Super Slick Locks

2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit IssueCelebrity hairstylist Jennifer Yepez worked with Gigi Hadid for the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue celebration on Tuesday (February 10) in New York City.

“My inspiration came from Gigi’s outfit. On the runway the look was super slick but we didn’t want it to be too severe so we went for something that would be sporty but still feminine. We decided to go very tight on the sides, creating a clean look while also keeping some volume on top. I also wanted to highlight Gigi’s beautiful blonde hair colour,” said Jennifer.

Here’s how to get the look.

First she sectioned the hair starting at the nape and evenly applied Oribe Grandiose Mousse, focusing on the root area for more of a grip to hold the style in place. Using a Mason Pearson Brush, she blow dried the hair flat to Gigi’s head shape.

Next, she took another section and repeated the same process until she got to the front of the head. When she reached the front, she applied double the mousse, focusing mostly on the sides, and blow dried it again using the flat brush.

When she reached the top of the head, she blow dried the hair with a round brush to create volume. Then she applied a small amount of Oribe Balm d’Or from the mid shaft to the ends of the hair and flat ironed it (from the mid shaft down) until it lay smooth.

Once the ends were smooth, she applied Oribe Superfine Strong Hairspray only to the sides of the hair, working one side at a time, spraying only the side being worked on and using the flat brush to smooth it back, following the head shape. Then she moved to the next side.

Once done, she sprayed the top lightly but didn’t brush it out in order to maintain the volume.

She used two large silver clips with small pieces of paper towel underneath each one to hold the sides in place until Gigi was ready to leave. Once she was all set, Jennifer took off the silver clips and Gigi was red carpet ready.
