Cannes: How To: Emily Blunt’s Shiny, Natural Hair
Fri, 21 May 2010 11:30AM
Emily Blunt rocked the mad red lip and softly textured waves at the amFAR benefit in Cannes, Primpers and I have the how to straight from the horses (or hairstylists) mouth on exactly what she did to create it. Hooray! Show of hands if you’re going to copy… Here, here.
Here’s Emily in her stunning George Chakra gown…
And here’s what her stylist, Laini Reeves, had to say about the look…
“I wanted Emily to be beautiful and sophisticated but to look her age, with hair down and flowing in soft waves that framed her face. Since Emily was not only an event chair at the amFAR Cinema Against AIDS 2010 benefit, but was going to the party directly afterward, it was important to create a look that lasted long into the night. Emily has a lot of hair but it’s very fine and doesn’t always hold a wave, so I layered several Moroccanoil argan-oil infused products to give the hair a really nice healthy shine but to hold the style as well,” she said.
And here’s how we get it, Primpers…
Step 1: Wash your hair with a repair shampoo and conditioner for added hydration before applying a few drops of Moroccanoil Treatment to her wet hair.
Step 2: Now, mix a cocktail of Moroccanoil Treatment with a pea-sized amount of Morocccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream and work it through from root to ends to give the hair shine, strength, and a soft hold.
Step 3: Next, dry the hair using a diffuser to encourage natural waves, lifting the hair at the roots before going over some of the curls with a large curling iron to give them more definition. Only curl the areas where the hair needs to be filled in, then rake your fingers through the hair to break up and separate the curls.
Step 4: To finish, apply a shine enhancing hairspray and you’re good to go.
This style is a massive winner for that mid-length hair we’re loving so much right now. It’s soft through the ends, sexy and super easy to recreate, all things that are worthy of a high five here at PRIMPED HQ.
