Inspired by Lily James’s elegant Valentino Golden Globes gown, celebrity hairstylist, Gregory Russell, created a soft and graceful updo to compliment the ruffled neckline and low back.
Starting with damp hair, he sprayed John Frieda Luxurious Volume Full Hydration Leave-In Detangling Mist on the ends and a golf ball-sized amount of Perfectly Full Mousse to the crown and roots. Next he blow dried with a large, round brush and used a flat iron to create a natural looking wave. A spritz of spray Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo added a soft texture, while some Secret Weapon Touch-Up Crème provided shine and definition.
Leaving a few wisps of hair out around the face, Russell tied the rest of the hair low at the nape of James’s head and split the ponytail in half. He next tied a knot, fastening the ends loosely so it would have a soft, romantic feeling. Locking in the style with John Frieda Luxurious Volume Forever Full Hairspray, he completed the look with a gold stone hair pin, which he applied to the knot.
