Get The Look: Chloe Grace Moretz’ ‘The Equalizer’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere Modern Updo

Get The Look Chloe Grace Moretz' 'The Equalizer' Toronto Film Festival Premiere Modern Updo

Celebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell worked with Chloe Grace Moretz for the premiere of ‘The Equalizer’ held during the 2014 Toronto Film Festival.

For the beauty’s hair inspiration Gregory said, “We wanted to create an effortless modern updo to accommodate the structured Dior dress.”

Here’s how to get the look.

He began by applying Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice on her damp hair through the entire top of her head at the roots. He then rough dried the hair 90% and finished with a ceramic round brush to smooth slightly.

Next he waved her hair with a 1″ iron before combing through with his hands, made a part, and fastened a section right in the front with a duckbill clip. He then pulled the rest of her hair back low and fastened it with a bungee hair tie. Next he rolled the hair into a very loose bun using bobby pins to secure it, making sure it was not too perfect.

Gregory then applied Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel through the sectioned hair from root to tip for definition. Next he twisted back the section, creating a pompadour shape to the front, and fastened it down to her head with hair pins before pulling a few pieces out around the face, tucking some behind her ears and leaving some out for softness and framing.

To finish, he used Leonor Greyl Laque Souple Hairspray for soft hold.

Get The Look: Kate Bosworth’s ‘Still Alice’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere Hair & Makeup

Get The Look Kate Bosworth's 'Still Alice' Toronto Film Festival Premiere Hair & Makeup

Celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff and celebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager worked with Kate Bosworth for the premiere of ‘Still Alice’ during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on Monday.

Here is how to get her stunning look.

MAKEUP

“The lady in RED. A red dress always leaves me wondering – do I go with a red lip or a nude lip? I decided to go for the RED,” said Pati on the beauty inspiration.

“The face is all about structure and contour. I spent time making sure every bone was sculpted, contoured, and highlighted. The same with the eye – no colour, just shades of skin. The cheek got a slight flush of a peachy bronze.”

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life, a soft red, was applied to Kate’s lips before a deeper red lipstick was added, with a lip brush, to contour the edges. Pati then used red lip gloss, straying from the outdated matte look, to brighten up the lips and mimic the shiny palettes of her dress.

HAIR

Bridget said, “My inspiration for Kate’s hair was a 90′s feel – sleek and modern.”

She started by applying a golf ball sized amount of Bumble and Bumble Thickening Mousse, starting at her roots and brushing it down to her ends. She then blew the hair out using a large round brush.

After her hair was dry, Bridget created a middle part and flat ironed her hair mid shift to ends using a T3 Flat Iron. Once hair was smooth, she took a small section on each side, just In front of the ear, and twisted the section tightly back. She then used a dab of paste to add shine and hold, and secured the two sections with a small clear plastic elastic.

Once the look was set, she used a bit of Moroccan Oil on the ends of her hair for shine and a quick spray of Oribe Superfine Hairspray.

Get The Look: Lorde’s MTV Video Music Awards Bold Waves

Always one to make a statement, award-winner singer, Lorde sported a beautifully bold waved hairstyle at MTV Video Music Awards (August 24th).

Celebrity hairstylist, Andy LeCompte drew inspiration from Jerry Hall’s signature waved tresses and developed a look that perfectly topped off Lorde’s look of the evening.

It was essential that the hairstyle look elegant and touchable while retaining its sheen long after its initial styling. This touchable and glamorous hairstyle can easily be recreated by following these simple tips:

Prep: Staring with clean, freshly washed hair was a must. Andy washed and conditioned Lorde’s hair using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner.

Styling (blowout): Once hair was thoroughly washed, Andy prepped her hair with Wella Professionals LuxeOil Keratin Boost Leave In Conditioning Spray. He applied the product while the hair was still damp to insure the perfect base for heat styling. He followed by blow drying the hair using a large ceramic brush to create natural and smooth volume.

Styling (wave): To create the classic Jerry Hall look, Andy parted Lorde’s hair in a deep side part and curled the hair with an 1 ½ inch ceramic curling iron. Starting from the base all the way to the crown of the hair, Andy created long loose waves.

Setting: To get that impeccable shine, he applied 2-3 pumps of Wella Professionals LuxeOil Reconstructive Elixir and warmed it up between his palms. He gently ran the product through the curls to neatly define the waves and lock in the sheen.

Finish: Andy added a final finishing touch to the hair by lightly misting the waves with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray. Not only does this tame any pesky flyaways but hair looks healthy and touchable long after the first spay.

Try your hand at this chic hairstyle and you’ll surely fell like a royal all evening.

Get The Look: Sarah Hyland’s Chic Emmy Awards Bun

Sarah Hyland hairRyan Richman created Sarah Hyland’s beauty look for the 2014 Emmy Awards.

“As a team, we were inspired by old Hollywood glamour. We loved Sarah’s custom-made Christian Siriano dress. I never want to be too literal with inspiration so we kept the look soft and natural to keep it modern.”

He began by applying 3-4 pumps of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment to her damp hair to add softness and shine without weighing it down and to protect it while blow drying.

Before blow drying each section, he applied a pump of Dove Frizz-Free Shine Serum to smooth frizz and flyaways.

Then he began blow drying large sections of hair using a large boar-bristle round brush, directing the hair away from the face. A boar-bristle brush is great for polishing and smoothing the hair while still maintaining body and some natural texture.

When styling a ponytail or bun you should blow dry the hair towards the centre point of where the hair will be put up, and use a straightening iron on medium heat to smooth any cowlicks or kinks around the hairline.

Next, he brushed the hair upwards towards the top of the head. He then used Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray as he was brushing to keep the hair in place. A great way to smooth flyaways while brushing is to spray hairspray directly onto the brush.

Then Ryan secured the hair in a ponytail with an elastic. To make tying your ponytail easier, bend over forwards and gather the hair instead of trying to reach high above your head.

To add texture to your bun, backcomb the ponytail with a brush and spray with hairspray. Finally, twist and wrap the hair into a bun and secure with bobby pins. You can pull out small pieces of hair with your fingertips or a rattail comb for an edgy undone look.
