This has been quite the day for British lovelies. It’s always a highlight when I get the chance to work with Kate Beckinsale, and today was no exception. It’s easy to see why she’s consistently ranked one of the world’s most desirable women. With her wholesome English rose good looks, Kate can get away with quite a bit of edginess in her hairstyle, so we went with a slightly punk-inspired look.
In her Zuhair Murad gown, Kate sailed down the red carpet in classic style, turning heads all the way up to the stage. I’m just so thrilled to have been part of the glitz and can’t wait to style this fabled brunette again.
Start by spraying a volumizing root spray directly on to the roots of damp hair. The spray will help add body and hold and it’s a great way to set the style in. It’ll also make hair more pliable and easier to work with.
Start blow drying your hair using a skeleton brush; use your fingers to create texture and additional volume. Once the hair is fully dry, separate into a horseshoe shaped section (the part between both temples & your crown area) and clip the top section away.
Pull the bottom section into a low, side ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure with an elastic. Then coil & wrap the tail into a messy bun. You can even tug a few strands out to create naturally falling bits and to loosen the bun. Secure it with bobby pins.
Take the hair from the top section and backcomb the roots using Boar Bristle Teasing Brush to maximize the volume at the crown and create a slightly disheveled texture.
Secure the top section into the existing, loose bun with bobby pins.
Mist the hair with Hairspray to add shine and long-lasting hold. Spray a little on finger tips and work it into the single strands to help define. Secure the final look with a few more pins. You’re good to go!
