Get The Look: Diane Kruger’s ‘The Bridge’ Premiere Double Braid

Diane Kruger's Braid

Celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath worked with Diane Kruger creating her double-braided hairstyle for the premiere of FX’s ‘The Bridge’.

Here is how she created the look.

First, she sprayed Leonor Greyl Spray Structure Naturelle from roots through ends and rough dried the hair, blowing it in all directions.
Then Kylee created a part from the top of the left ear, straight over the head to the top of the right ear. Breaking the section into two, she creating a centre part and clipped away both sections. Starting at the back of the centre part, she then made two partings, creating a triangle section in the back.

The leftover hair on either side of the triangle was also then clipped away, leaving only the triangle section unclipped. She did an inside-out French braid (cornrow) on the triangle section and secured it at the base of the neck with a clear rubber band.

Next, Kylee took down the clipped away sections. Kylee gave the roots a light tease for volume, lightly pulled them back and created a loose French braid (over the top of the triangle-sectioned cornrow).

Braiding the hair until only about 2.5″ was left, she secured it with a clear rubber band and lightly loosened up the braid.

Kylee finished the look with Kevin Murphy Strong Hold Hairspray and Easy Rider.

Chloe Mortez Hair2

Celebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell worked with Chloe Grace Moretz for the 40th Annual Saturn Awards, creating her gorgeous braided look.

Firstly, Gregory applied Kevin Murphy Hair Resort Spray throughout her damp hair and loosely dried it with a medium boar-bristle round brush.

Next, he sectioned her hair from the back of her ear forward and braided one braid up and over to the other side, fastening with a clear elastic band.
Then he used a bungee to fasten the rest of her hair at eye level.

He then split the pony in two and twisted the two sections with one another.

Taking the twist and fastening it into a bun with bobby pins, he then added some braided extensions around the bun for added texture and fullness.

Finally, he pinned the front braid around to the bun and loosened the braid on top to his desired shape.

Jessica Alba And Christopher Gavigan Celebrate The Launch Of The Honest Company At TargetCelebrity hairstylist Davy Newkirk worked with Jessica Alba to create her beachy waves for the launch of The Honest Company at Target.

First, Davy ran some Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil through Jessica’s wet hair, then sprayed the roots with Alterna Bamboo Volume Spray before blow drying her hair using a diffuser.

Davy then curled random sections using a half inch curling iron, starting at the base of the hair and working down.

After curling, Davy ran his fingers through Jessica’s hair blowing it around with blow dryer to give it a more natural texture.

To finish off, Davy used a bit of John Masters Hair Texturizer on random pieces and ends.

Get The Look: Keira Knightley’s ‘Begin Again’ New York Premiere Soft Glamorous Waves

KeiraKeira Knightley attended the New York Premiere of her latest film Wednesday (June 25) in a beautiful Valentino dress.

While the navy number was enough to wow onlookers, it was her soft tousled hairstyle that truly pulled the full look together.

Celebrity hairstylist Ben Skervin aimed to create a glamorous yet elegantly waved look without looking too harsh.

Ben was inspired by the flowing movement of her dress and felt that Keira’s hair should look and move similarly without losing its shape.

The final classically tousled waved hairstyle perfectly complemented her bold look of the evening.

Using products from the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series, here is how you can recreate this versatile hairstyle yourself:

Prep: After a proper wash and conditioning, Keira’s damp hair was prepped with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse. Using a tennis ball amount of product, Ben applied the mousse throughout the hair at the roots and lengths for soft, touchable volume.

Style: Once mousse is evenly distributed, he neatly blow dried her hair in sections with a medium round brush. The barreled shaped of the brush helps lift the hair at the roots and gives hair added volume you’d otherwise lose if using a flat brush. Once hair is fully dried and evenly blown out, set hair in a centered part.

Wave: To create Keira’s perfect waves, Ben used a 1-inch barrel curling iron throughout the hair. He sprayed each 1 inch section with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray before wrapping each section of hair down the iron. Using this method in place of the classic style of coiling hair up the iron created a soft and polished wave as opposed to a pristine curl. Once each section is set around the iron, release and let cool.

Once hair has sufficiently cooled, give it a naturally tousled look by running fingers through the hair which breaks up the the flawlessly set waves and loosens it up.

Finish: To finish the look, spray hair with a texturizing spray like Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Repair & Finish Spray at the roots for a relaxed and perfectly disheveled look that lasts all evening.

Get the Look: Emmy Rossum’s Bright Critic’s Choice Television Awards Makeup

Emmy Rossum Critics Choice MakeupEmmy Rossum dazzled on the red carpet at the 4th Annual Critic’s Choice Television Awards in more ways than one.

The fuchsia Monique Lhuillier gown was paired with a rich coral lip.

Take notes, because fun hues are replacing the classics in beauty. High intensity shades can be worn on any complexion and are an easy way to update your normal routine.

Emmy’s makeup artist for the evening, Jo Baker, says that experimenting with bold tones is something that every woman should try.

Her tips make it easy for anyone to take a shot at the trend and also recreate Emmy’s look.

First, lips were prepped using Chanel Hydra Beauty Nourishing Lip Care. Generously moisturizing before applying lipstick helps the product glide on evenly while also minimizing cracked skin.

There’s nothing worse than wearing a bold color that highlights dehydrated crevices.

After massing the balm in, Givenchy Le Rouge in 201 Rose Taffetas was applied in several layers. The multiple coats maximize the pigment’s saturation.

Take a closer look and you’ll notice that the color doesn’t stop there. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Pool Boy was smudged into Rossum’s lash line, creating an aquatic haze.

If you’re not quite ready to mix two extreme shades, Baker recommends pairing slightly off hues to subtly intensify saturation. For instance, try mixing red with orange. The two tones will appear soft yet striking at the same time.
