She may have just turned 40, but Cameron Diaz somehow continues to look ageless. At last week’s UK premiere of her new film, ‘Gambit,’ the star looked stunning in a Stella McCartney dress with flawless skin, a nude lip and classic lined black eye.
Hairstylist George Northwood spoke to us about how he achieved Cameron’s girlish bun on the night.
‘My inspiration was something soft, girly and modern for the red carpet,’ he said. ‘First I rough dried the hair, scrunching for texture and volume using a Parlux dryer.’
‘I blow dried the fringe forward with a small round brush, rounding at the end to create a soft edge – part it where desired.’
‘Next I sprayed Redken Quick Tease, a backcombing lift finishing spray, throughout the roots excluding the fringe which I kept flat. I backcombed the hair at the roots all over, again excluding the fringe, using a carbon comb which keeps the hair static free.’
‘To copy this style, hold the hair into a pony then twist on itself and wrap into a bun. Then grip and pin it into place around the outside of the bun.’
‘Pull some bits out around the face and tong lightly for texture and wave definition. I recommend T3 tongs.’
‘Finally spray with Pureology Strengthening Control Zero Dulling Hair Spray and rough up the style a bit for a fresh, young tousled look.’
