Kate Hudson quickly transformed from Golden Girl (left) into Silver Ice Queen with her stunning, white, one-shouldered Stella McCartney gown and matching top-knot. Celebrity stylist, Peter Gray, used ABBA Pure Performance Vegan Hair Care and Cricket Co. Professional Tools to create both McCartney’s (inset, second) flowing waves and Kate’s sleek bun. “(Stella and Kate) always look beautiful. We worked together on these creative looks that didn’t appear too pretty – they were more lived in and distressed, yet stunning,” Gray shared.
How did Gray achieve Hudson’s steely look? Gray first prepped the hair with Thermal Protect Spray then applied ABBA Volumizing Root Lift Spray on damp hair from middle to ends of hair, coming through with the Cricket Silkomb Rattail Pro-50 for more texture and volume. Then he used a dash of Blow Dry Lotion “to create a bit of slip” before smoothing hair with the Cricket Copper Clean Paddle brush. Drying damp hair with the Centrix Q-Zone Dryer on low heat and low blow, Gray created texture and a” lived-in look,” pinching sections with the thumb and forefinger and applying ABBA Dry Shampoo to set the hair.
Next Gray took the Ultra Smooth Professional Curling Iron to create diagonal curls and used ABBA Firm Finish Hair Spray as a setting spray. Once dry, he pull Hudson’s hair upward into a high ponytail using the Amped Up Teasing brush and securing with an elastic before adding a weft made from human hair for enhanced volume and length to the ponytail. Holding the Cricket Silkomb Rattail Pro-50 at the center of the ponytail, Gray wrapped hair around the tail comb to create Hudson’s top knot.
