When British actress, Emily Blunt hit the red carpet at this year’s Emmy Awards with her sleek but slightly tousled side chignon, our hearts skipped a beat. So we asked celebrity hair stylist, Laini Reeves, who styled Emily’s hair for the event how she created the look. With our pen and paper at the ready, we noted it all down so we could recreate the look at home.
Here’s how she did it:
“I first shampooed Emily’s hair with Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo to leave it soft, shiny and well conditioned for the intricacies of styling.
Next, I made a low side-part on the right and then pincurled the hair in alternating patterns towards the left and behind the right side.
I then misted Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray on Emily’s wet hair and let it air-dry for one hour while make-up was applied. I didn’t use a hairdryer this time since I didn’t want the hair to appear blown in any way. I wanted it to look authentic with all the ends nice and neat, so the waves would look softer yet controlled when they were brushed.
Once Emily’s hair had air-dried, I released the pincurls and raked my fingers through her hair. I used a paddle brush to keep her hair flat to the head so it wouldn’t disturb the root movement of the wave, and gently brushed from part to ends so her hair fell into a lovely wave.
Finally, I shaped and styled the flow of the look by framing the left side of Emily’s face with a cascade of waves. I finished the look with a quick mist of argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to give the hair a beautiful hold without compromising on softness, movement or shine.”
