Aside from the fact that they are blessed with good genes, stars are able to look great because they employ a phalanx of stylists. Fortunately there is a way for us ordinary mortals to copy their looks.
Celebrity hairstylists share the step-by-step guide to recreating some of Hollywood’s best hairstyles.
Angelina Jolie’s tousled hairstyle
At the L.A. Premier of partner Brad Pitt’s movie Inglourious Basterds, Angelina Jolie was spotted sporting seriously sexy locks. Angelina’s stylist David Babaii reveals the trick to achieving the look:
Using his very own WildAid products, Babaii applied hair polish throughout the hair, and then used Volcanic Root Amplifier at the roots.
Next, he divided the tresses into three sections and dried them using a big round brush. He then wrapped the sections around the brush and alternated between blow-drying the hair with hot and cold air at 10-second intervals.
Babaii finished the hairstyle by misting the Angelina’s hair with Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray.
Blake Lively’s braided ponytail
At this year’s Emmys, the Gossip Girl star created a buzz with her knockout red Versace dress; but that’s another story. We were more interested in her long, braided tresses that made her look like a modern day goddess.
Blake’s stylist, Renato Campora of Frederic Fekkai salon shares the steps to recreating the young star’s elegant ponytail:
Campora started by applying Coiff Strong Hold Volume Mousse to wet hair. He then blow-dried and prepped it with Coiff Extra Control Styling Gel.
Next he teased Blake’s tresses and gathered it into a high pony tail. He then braided the entire ponytail and secured it at the end.
Campora finished the look with Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Creme.
