Rowan Blanchard walked the red carpet at Saturday night’s LACMA Art + Film Gala.  Wearing an iridescent Gucci lurex dress with puffed sleeves and self-fabric bows, the actress and her hairstylist, Laurie Heaps, decided on a theatrical look.  “To complement her Gucci dress, we wanted to bring a little theater into the mix, while still keeping the hairstyle contemporary,” explains Heaps.  So how did Heaps create Blanchard’s modern “finger waves”?

Heaps began with an off-center part, curling 1-inch sections of hair with a 1-inch Curling Iron from Hot Tools.  “Before each section, I made sure to mist the hair with White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Styling Spray.
