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.”

Get The Look: Kate Bosworth’s ‘The Art Of More’ Grecian-Inspired Braid

Kate Bosworth's 'The Art Of More' Grecian-Inspired Braid

Celebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager worked with Kate Bosworth for SAG Foundation’s Conversation on ‘The Art of More’ in Los Angeles last week.

“For Kate’s look, we wanted to do a ‘cool girl’ braid. Something a bit different, but not too flashy,” said Bridget.

Here’s how to get the look.

Bridget started by giving Kate a wavy, ‘bed head’ look. She added a little Sachajuan Ocean Mist, gave it a rough blow-dry, and curl-wanded with a T3 Whirl Trio. That’s all you need for lived-in waves.

She started by creating a deep side part, then Dutch-braided the hair down the side of her head, following her hairline. The idea was to have the braid continuing its way down, just behind the ear and then wrapping around the nape. She secured the braid with a bobby pin.

To finish the look, she used Kevin Murphy Powder Puff to create some volume and texture in the braid as she pulled it apart for a more lived-in feel.

Get The Look: Emily Ratajkowski’s ‘We Are Your Friends’ Lille Premiere Hair

 width=Celebrity hair stylist Dayaruci worked with Emily Ratajkowski for the ‘We Are Your Friends’ Lille premiere on Wednesday (August 12).

Dayaruci said, “When I work with Emily, it’s always a collaboration. We usually decide on her hairstyle once we know what she’s wearing”.

“For the Lille premiere of ‘We Are Your Friends’, Emily was wearing a gorgeous Balmain short fringe dress, so we decided to keep her hair very simple and fresh.”

He went onto say, “We decided that the focal point should be a deep side part, slightly on a diagonal, keeping the texture clean and straight.”

“I find that if you want to make a statement with a part, it’s very important to keep it neat and defined.”

Here’s how to get the look.

He started by using Kerastase Spray à Porter on her wet hair to lift up the roots, especially on the crown of the head. He then blow-dried her hair with a Mason Pearson flat brush to get the ends completely straight without any bend. He then dried the front with a big round brush, going backwards to give a bit of volume on the roots.

To keep the side behind her ear, he used L’Oreal Studio Line SLEEK IT Styling Spray, which has a bit of hold to it.

He finished the look with a touch of Moroccan Oil Luminous Hairspray all over her hair.

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.
