“The inspiration for Jessica’s hair at the Critics’ Choice Awards came from the beautiful dress. Once I saw the high neckline, I knew we wanted to show that off. Working with the silhouette, I decided to pull the hair off of the face and create a beautiful loose braid in the back. The result was a modern shape that really complemented the whole look,” said Renato.
Here’s how to get the look.
On wet hair, he applied Kerastase Mousse Volumactive and then blew it dry with a large round brush. He wanted the hair to be smooth and shiny.
Next he separated the hair and pulled the top section into a rubber band, wrapping some of the hair around the band. At this point, half of the hair was up and half was down. Then he took about an inch section of hair from below each ear and brought them together. He used a very small rubber band to hold this in place.
Then he created a simple loose braid in the back to keep the look soft. Securing the end with a small rubber band, he finished with Wella Finishing Hairspray.
