Actress Dakota Johnson wowed us in her red-hot Saint Laurent ensemble at the 87th Academy Awards red carpet event. And to compliment the gown’s ultra-sexy silhouette and Dakota’s beautiful makeup, celebrity stylist Mark Townsend created hair that is elegant yet effortless.
And the good news? You can easily achieve this red carpet look!
Townsend simply added a few drops of Dove Vitality Rejuvenating Silk Crème to Johnson’s dampened hair and blow dried it with a Mason Pearson brush to add softness and shine. To create texture, he sprayed Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo throughout her hair, gathered her locks just above the base of the head then secured it with an elastic. “The key to dressing up a ponytail is in the details”, Townsend said. So to give the ponytail a modern twist, he wrapped around a small bunch of hair to hide the elastic then secured it with bobby pins. He then sprayed his hands with Sally Hershberger Glam Waves Texture Spray and brushed them through the ponytail to create additional texture. He finished the look with Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray to keep her hair in place all night long.
