Can’t figure out what to do with your hair for the holidays, how about taking a cue from Reese Witherspoon and Cate Blanchett, and look like a star.
Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel created a simple bun with a heavy side swept bangs on Reese Witherspoon at the Wild movie premiere in Los Angeles last month. Since this style is simple yet elegant, we think it would go perfectly with a little black dress.
1. He created a very deep side part on towel dried hair and applied John Frieda Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir for shine and pliability.
2. Then he applied John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion from the roots through mid shaft to create volume.
3. Abergel blow-dried hair smooth with a round brush creating side swept bangs for a 60’s feel.
4. Once hair was dry, he took a fine tooth comb and teased the crown making sure to smooth it with a paddle brush. Once the shape was achieved, he locked it in by spraying John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray.
5. He applied a dime-sized amount of John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Crème to tame flyaways.
6. He pulled hair into a low ponytail staying about 4 inches above the nape of the neck and secured it with an elastic. He then twisted the hair into an “S” shape knot and pinned it in place.
7. Lastly, he sprayed John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray to set the look.
We like this elegant flirty hairstyle Nicola Clarke created for Cate Blanchett when she took home the BAFTA Award earlier this year for her role in Woody Allen’s film Blue Jasmine. Wear this style with a halter dress or an off-the-shoulder gown.
1. She sprayed hair with John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full spray.
2. Then she blow-dried hair with a small round brush and pinned each section, allowing to cool off.
3. Clarke gently spritzed with John Frieda Luxurious Volume hair spray and tousled with her fingers to create texture before loosely plaiting.
4. Then she pulled the plait back and secured with pins at the nape of the neck.
5. She set the look with hairspray.
