Did you catch my live-tweeting of the red carpet last night? It’s always so much fun watching the celebs show up and walk the red carpet. The fashion and makeup are always fabulous, and it’s superb for catching a little inspiration.
Best actress nominee Greta Gerwig was styled by TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist John D. who was nice enough to share the details with us. Says John D.:
“Our inspiration for tonight was purely feeling beautiful. We wanted the look to be elegant, classic, and romantic so I opted for a soft, romantic ‘do to complement Greta’s style.”
Here is how he did it:
- Use TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse on clean hair and apply throughout, from root to tip, for volume and a great foundation. Blow-dry hair using a medium-sized round brush to add extra bounce and lift at the root
- Once hair is dry, use a 1″ curling iron to create body, which helps add softness to the final look. It also holds hair together, which is necessary when creating an up-do. Once finished, flip head upside-down and spray waves using TRESemmé TRES Two Ultra Fine Mist Hair Spray
- Section off the hair that frames the face (ear to ear) and give the hair a light back comb at the root for added lift. Then, rake fingers through hair to tame down excess lift and pull remaining hair back toward the nape of the neck. Split hair into two sections and proceed to tie hair into knots creating a kind of loose “chain” effect. Bobby pin into place. Pull the remaining hair, that was sectioned out, toward the back of the head and secure using a few hair pins.
- Finish the look by spraying TRESemmé TRES Two Hairspray all over to lock it in place. Try embellishing the style using some sparkly jewelry or an accessory – Greta wore Vintage Fred Leighton pieces.
