Celebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager worked with Kiernan Shipka to achieve the soft wavy tresses she sported while attending Claiborne Swanson Frank’s ‘Young Hollywood’ book launch hosted by Michael Kors on Thursday.
Sharing her beauty inspiration, Bridget said “Kiernan’s look was inspired by her beautiful Michael Kors dress. We opted for soft waves and shine.”
Bridget started by applying Kerastase Mousse Bouffante Luxurious Volumizing Mousse from roots to ends. Then she rough dried the hair until it was 85% dry and used a large round brush to smooth the hair until it was completely dry. For a quick and beautiful blow out, rough drying hair allows natural texture and volume to come out. Once you have a good foundation, using a round boar-bristle brush skinnies and smoothes the hair down and brings it together, which allows shine to come to the surface.
Next she sectioned out Kiernan’s bangs and used a large velcro roller, rolling the bangs back and away from the face for a swoopy soft bang effect, and secured with a duck-bill clip.
Using a 1.25 Inch T3 curling iron, she wrapped 1 inch sections of hair vertically, starting at the mid-shaft of each section and moving back towards the face, making sure to curl the ends. Once all the hair was set and cooled, she softened the waves by brushing them out. Then she used Kerastase Short Mania Semi-Matte Sculpting Paste and scrunched it into the hair for texture and light hold.
After brushing the bangs into place, Bridget finished the look with an all-over mist of Oribe Superfine Hairspray.
