How to: Kate Bosworth's Braided Updo
Thursday, July 24, 2014 • 22 comments
I guess it's safe to say that when it comes to the beauty department Kate Bosworth always nails it. She is one of the few celebrities in my opinion that has the ability to pull off almost any kind of look. At the launch of her new app called "Style Thief" on Wednesday (July 16) the 31 year-old actress sported a very intricate, romantic and of-the-moment braided updo which perfectly complimented the view at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, CA and her ethereal RED Valentino dress. Hairstylist Bridget Barager who did Kate's hair for the even shares the step-by-step guide on how to recreate her look . . .
Step 1: I started by giving her hair a good douse of PHYTO Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray, roots to ends, said Brager. “To set in texture and add thickness, I blew her hair dry using my hands, really concentrating on lifting the hair away from the scalp and up off of her head, especially around the hairline.”
Step 2: “Next, I created a disheveled deep part. Starting at the crown, along the part, I began braiding forward so the braid would fall towards her forehead concealing her hair line, which is what gave way to a soft romantic feel. Then I started a second and third braid at her temples, braiding back on each side.”
Step 3: “Using pomade, like Philip B Shinade Pomade to tame fly aways and add a bit of shine, I loosened the braids to make them billowy and voluminous. To get the detail in the back, I wove the braids together and pinned them low to give a halo effect.”
Step 4: “To finish, I sprayed a light coat of L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray and allowed any bits to fall as they may - and she was set!"
