Get The Look: Felicity Jones’ Producers Guild Awards Tousled Bun

Get The Look Felicity Jones' Producers Guild Awards Tousled Bun

Celebrity hairstylist Cervando Maldonado worked with Felicity Jones for the 2015 Producers Guild Awards on Saturday (January 24).

Cervando said, “My inspiration for the look was a modern tousled bun.”

Here’s how to get the look.

On damp hair he first applied Kerastase Volumactive Mousse from roots to ends. Then he sprayed Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray throughout the hair.

Next he used a Harry Josh Blow Dryer and rough dried the hair until it was almost dry, using a comb on the top of the head and around the hairline to create lift and texture. He used a medium-sized Ibiza Boar Bristle Brush to blow out the hair starting on the top and the front of the head, taking it section by section to create lift and semi-smoothness. After blow drying each section, he put the hair in a small Velcro roller to create lift and hold. Once the hair was set in the rollers from the front of the head to the crown only, he smoothed out the hair around the face with the brush and left the rest of the hair at the back of the head in its natural texture.

Once the hair was dry, he took all of the rollers out except the one at the very front. He then used his hands to rake though the rest of the hair, pulling it up into a ponytail above the occipital bone. He pinched the hair in place and wrapped a bungee hair band around the hair to secure it. Next he took the ponytail and wrapped it around into a loose bun, using bobby pins and hair pins to hold it in place. He then took the last roller out and pushed the remaining hair back with his hands, pinning it in place right above the bun.

Next he sprayed a combination of Oribe Dry Texturing Spray and Sachajuan Volume Powder through the top of the hair and the bun to create great texture and keep the height in the front. He finished it all off with Sachajuan Super Strong Hold Hairspray, spraying lightly through the whole head for a great hold with a natural look.

Felicity Jones In Valentino – 2015 Producers Guild Awards

Felicity Jones In Valentino - 2015 Producers Guild Awards

Felicity Jones attended the 2015 Producers Guild Awards held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Saturday (January 24) in Los Angeles, California.

I was doing cartwheels in celebration of this look; firstly, it’s not black and, secondly, this was my favourite look from Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2015 collection.

The silvery blue embellished piece has been watered down quite a bit from the look book, which is understandable, but I wish the bodice had some lightness to it; not in colour, but in fabric.

Are you doing celebratory cartwheels, or has the lining watered down the appeal of this gown?

Felicity Jones In Balenciaga – 2015 SAG Awards

Felicity Jones In Balenciaga - 2015 SAG Awards

Felicity Jones was also among the star-studded list at the 2015 SAG Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (January 25).

Having failed to impress at the 2015 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, I had high hopes for ‘The Theory of Everything’ actress and Screen Actors Guild nominee.

She selected a Balenciaga blush-hued gown, featured a crisscross, off-the-shoulder bodice, that was also rather mature for the starlet. Van Cleef & Arpels earrings and a slicked-back bun completed the look.

Between the pale colour and the uninspiring silhouette, I was sadly left underwhelmed by her effort; perhaps I am still under the influence of her more glorious Golden Globes moment.

Felicity Jones In Dolce & Gabbana – 2015 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Felicity Jones In Dolce & Gabbana - 2015 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Felicity Jones attended the 2015 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at the Hollywood Palladium on Thursday (January 15) in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Theory of Everything’ actress went back to black wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015 tulle gown with delicate embroidery, which fails to excite.

Mostly because it feels too mature for her (methinks even Helen Mirren would veto this) and secondly because it’s so expected.

Coming off the big bang she made at the Globes, this pales in comparison.

Felicity’s makeup is lovely, but I have no words for the hair.

Get The Look: Felicity Jones’ Sophisticated Golden Globe Awards Updo

Get The Look Felicity Jones’  Sophisticated Golden Globe Awards Updo

With all the embellishment and glitz seen on Sunday evening’s 2015 Golden Globe Awards red carpet, Felicity Jones’s elegant Dior gown was a welcomed change.

The English actress brought a touch of her English sophistication to the ceremony and popped in the deep green dress. With such a graceful look, it was only natural that celebrity hair stylist Tommy Buckett create an equally fitting updo for the petite actress.

Using an array of Garnier and T3 products, here’s how you can recreate this simple and chic hairstyle:

PREP: Once hair was washed and conditioned, Tommy prepped Felicity’s hair with Garnier Brazilian Smooth Flatiron Express. He then sectioned the hair and blew it out with a T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Dryer using a T3 Anti-Gravity 2.5” Barrel Brush.

STYLE (PREP): After the hair was blown out, Tommy spritzed her entire hair with an even coat of Garnier Sleek & Shine Iron Perfector Straightening Mist. He then flat ironed Felicity’s hair suing the T3 SinglePass Straightening Iron.

STYLE (UPDO): Once hair was straightened, Tommy back-combed the crown of her hair and created a deep side part. He then gathered the hair into a low ponytail at the nape of her neck. To ensure smooth and healthy looking hair free of flyaways, he applied a small amount of Garnier Fructis Marvelous Oil Deep Nourish at the tips of her hair. Once applied, Tommy arranged the ponytail into a knot and secured with bobby pins.

As a final touch, Tommy sprayed Jones’s hair with Garnier Sleek & Shine Finish 5-in-1 Serum Spray. Not only did this give the hair a soft sheen but kept it in place for the duration of the evening.

Tommy proved that one does not need to go above and beyond with hair on the red carpet. Choosing a simple and elegant hairstyle can speak volumes in formal settings.

Felicity Jones In Christian Dior Couture – 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Felicity Jones In Christian Dior Couture - 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Felicity Jones has already walked a host of red carpets just this year in support of her film, ‘The Theory of Everything,’ and she was back in action at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 11) at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

The British star and Best Actress nominee maintained her sophisticated, ladylike style in a Christian Dior Couture ball gown that was nothing short of head-turning. Yet, she exchanged her affinity for darker colours to wear this glorious shade of teal blue.

Not only the hue of this dress was significant, so too was its architecturally prim silhouette, which only need be accessorized by vintage-inspired Van Cleef & Arpels earrings.

While this monochromatic look could have been boring—or the silhouette rather engulfing—she brings life to the classic tailoring of the gown, which is completed by a beautifully smokey eye and swept-back ’do.

Felicity Jones In Alexander McQueen & Erdem – InStyle’s Golden Globe Nominations Party & 2015 BAFTA LA Tea Party

Felicity Jones In Alexander McQueen & Erdem - InStyle's Golden Globe Nominations Party & BAFTA Tea Party

Before attending the Golden Globes this evening, where she is nominated in the Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama category for ‘Theory of Everything,’ Felicity Jones attended both InStyle’s Golden Globe Nominations party held at the Chateau Marmont on Friday (January 9) and the 2015 BAFTA Tea Party held at The Four Seasons Hotel on Saturday (January 10) in Beverly Hills, California.

InStyle’s Golden Globe Nominations Party: The actress continued her love for muted tones wearing a black Alexander McQueen Spring 2015 fitted harness peplum dress styled with a playful pair of Sophia Webster ‘Daria Neon’ pumps for an unexpected, but very welcome, twist.

2015 BAFTA LA Tea Party: Wearing another pair of eye catching heels, this time by Giuseppe Zanotti, Felicity wore an Erdem long-sleeve sheer printed dress styled with an Anya Hindmarch clutch.

Of the two looks, I’m instantly drawn to the first for its overall sleekness and chic appeal. I’m only intrigued by the footwear for the second look.
