Get The Look: Felicity Jones’ Classic Hollywood Glam With A Punk Twist Do

JonesCelebrity hairstylist Cervando Maldonado worked with Felicity Jones for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ 2014 Governors Awards.

Cervando’s explains he’s beauty inspiration, “The inspiration for the look was Classic Hollywood glam with a punk twist.”

Here’s how to get the look.

He started on damp hair, prepping it first with Kérastase Resistance Volumactive Mousse distributed evenly through the hair. Then he applied Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray to the roots all over the head and rough dried the hair with a Harry Josh Pro Tools Pro Dryer 2000 until it was completely dry.

Then Cervando used an Ibiza Hair EX3 Medium Boar Bristle Brush and blew out and smoothed the hair beginning at the front of the head and around the face, continuing through the rest of the hair. After that he used a 1.5 inch T3 Tourmaline Curling Iron throughout to create loose textured waves. Once done, he sprayed Sachajuan Volume Powder through the hair to create volume and dry texture.

After this he sprayed Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray all over to create even more texture and separation. Once done, he parted the hair into a deep side part with the end of a bone-tail comb to create a severe part in the hair. Then he slicked back the hair on the left side of the head by using Osmo Clay Wax to hold the hair down in place. After he slicked it down he pulled the hair and wrapped it around the nape of the neck, adding black bobby pins to hold it securely into place, creating an asymmetrical look.

Once secure, he added a dime-sized amount of Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil and applied it to the slicked back area, creating sheen and a wet look. Once that was set he put the remaining loose hair in pin curls and let it set for about 10 minutes. He then took it down and brushed it with a Mason Pierson brush creating a gorgeous, loose wave. Lastly, he sprayed the hair with Sachajuan Super Strong Hairspray, creating hold and shine for a modern, finished ook.

Felicity Jones In Prada – Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Governors Awards

Felicity Jones In Prada - Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Governors Awards

Felicity Jones attended the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Governors Awards at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center on Saturday (November 8) in Hollywood, California.

Prada has to go down as the most frustrating inconsistent brand when it comes to off-runway gowns.

They have some excruciatingly bad moments (Nicole Kidman and Kristen Wiig) and some breathtakingly brilliant moments (Emily Blunt and Gemma Arterton).

This would be one of the good moments, although they can’t be held accountable for that lopsided hairdo.

Cut in a simple silhouette to which we have become accustomed when it comes to Miss Jones, the embellishments prevent this from being a snooze. Styled with a midnight-blue Edie Parker clutch and bold red lip, the look was given an edge with a silver ear cuff.

Felicity Jones In Dior, Fendi - 'Theory Of Everything' New York Promo Tour

Felicity Jones has been busy promoting her new movie, ‘Theory Of Everything’, in New York City, serving up plenty of black options on a dark colour palette which has seen her being hailed as the queen of demure dressing.

‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon': Perhaps one of my favourite mannish offerings this year, I love how the shirt on her Dior suit mimics a tie.

Variety Screen Series: Fabulous in Fendi, this ladylike sleeveless tri-colour frock with a pleated skirt and simple styling is Felicity to a tee.

Felicity Jones In Christopher Kane – BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards

Felicity Jones In Christopher Kane - BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards

Felicity Jones attended the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday (October 30) in Beverly Hills, California.

The British actress wore a Christopher Kane Spring 2015 black dress for the ceremony.

While I’m sure many will share my disappointment at the black over the periwinkle-blue option, one must concede that Felicity’s choice was very much more in tune with her I-often-favour-black elegant style.

Charming and buoyant with its fanciful tulle skirt, the actress was gracefully poised, styling her look with Cartier jewels, black ankle-strap pumps and a studded Rodo clutch for a touch of flair.

Should she have opted for the blue, or are you loving her in all black?

Felicity Jones In Miu Miu - BAFTA Los Angeles and the Britannia Awards

Felicity Jones joined Lily Collins for the BAFTA Los Angeles and the Britannia Awards held at Chateau Marmont on Wednesday (October 29) in Los Angeles, California.

The British actress wore a Miu Miu white frock; minimalist in shape with intricate contrast colourful crystal embellishments to the bodice and hemline.

I love the playful dress as much as her classic Kurt Geiger London ‘Sharkie’ pumps, however, the look is at its best sans Burberry trench.

Felicity Jones In Dior – ‘The Theory Of Everything’ LA Premiere

Felicity Jones In Dior - 'The Theory Of Everything' LA Premiere

Felicity Jones glided down the red carpet for the premiere of ‘The Theory Of Everything’ held at AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Tuesday (October 28) in Beverly Hills, California.

Looking every inch an English rose, the actress was breathtaking wearing a Dior rose-coloured gown.

The elegant, timeless design in richly fabricated silk leather satin was crafted with sleek vertical seams that give way to a full skirt.

The skirt was perhaps an inch or two too long, yet that takes nothing away from the glorious red carpet look.

Styled with an elegant updo and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels, her makeup was kept fresh and light.
