We love looking to the red carpet for beauty and fashion inspiration. It's a fabulous place to find ideas for your wedding day! In a previous post, Alison blogged about Mad Men beauty Christina Hendricks and her gorgeous makeup. When I got a closer look at some of the hair, one style that I felt was super modern, yet very bridal appropriate was the loose updo on The Fighter star and Globe nominee Amy Adams. Created by celebrity stylist Laini Reeves, she explains her thoughts behind the look, "I wanted to create a soft 20’s mood, but in a different, modern way." In order to achieve that look one of the key products she used was Moroccanoil. Want to achieve this look? Here's how Laini did it.
1. We started by washing her hair with Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo which infuses the hair with argan oil, keratins, fatty acids, and proteins. Combined with Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner, it immediately controlled the hair and left it smoother, frizz free and easy to manage and style. 2. I then applied Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream while it was drying, from root to end to give soft hold while further smoothing the texture and adding definition and shine. I rough-dried the hair with my hands to get the water out and created a bit of a messed up texture with a slight touch of wave for a more modern, freer look. The hair was air dried except at the roots, where I used a blow dryer. 3. Next, I used a 1” curling iron to make curls in different parts of the hair that needed to be filled in and then smoothed and blended them in. I made a side part and prepared some pieces from the front of the hair to frame her face, pinning them in an “S”-shape and away from the rest of the hair. 4. I gathered and pulled back the rest of hair, made a loose braid that I doubled up, rolled upwards and pinned at the nape, with the cross texture side of the braid showing. Only five thick bobby pins were used to secure the style in place. 5. Finally, I released the “S”-shaped sections in the front and pinned them behind the ear to open her face up and to show off her cheek bones. I then sprayed the look with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to keep everything in place with movable shine, without looking like it was sprayed.
