Two top updos from the red carpet of the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards:
Bérénice Bejo: Romantic ponytail
Oribe stylist Cydney Cornell’s goal for the star of The Artist was to create a look that was different from her previous award show appearances and that, “showed off her newly dyed red hair.” She settled on a wavy ponytail, achieved by setting dry hair on steam rollers, then raking styling cream through the finished curls to set them in place. Next, Cydney teased the hair at the crown then misted it with texturizing spray for added lift before combing that section into place. She worked more styling cream between her palms, then used her hands to pull the hair back into a ponytail. She smoothed the sides and added shine with a bit of moisturizing cream and finished with hairspray for hold.
Dianna Agron: Braided updo
Frederic Fekkai stylist Adir Abergel wanted to create a romantic updo to mimic the romantic movement of Agron’s dress. He began by applying glossing cream from the roots to the ends of the Glee actress’s wet hair to create texture. He then rough dried the hair with his hands. Once dry, he spritzed wave spray throughout and rough dried it through once more. To begin the updo, Adir took a section of the hair from the top of the left ear and created a long fishtail braid. He then wrapped that braid around the front of the head like a crown, leaving the hair underneath loose and undone. Adir then took the rest of the hair and created three more fishtail braids, ultimately twisting them together in the back of the head and securing them with hairpins. A mist of light hold hairspray secured the style in place for the night.
