Hot Buns How-to

When it comes to beauty, Emily Blunt can do no wrong! She always looks smart, sophisticated and sexy. Her look at the “Edge of Tomorrow” NYC premiere is certainly no exception.

Celebrity hairstylist Laini Reeves of Tomlinson Management Group  created Emily’s sleek, simple, side bun to echo the modern lines of her sleek, lipstick red Prada gown.

Here’s how she did it:

  1. First, Reeves prepped Emily’s wet hair with René Furterer VEGETAL MOUSSE and gave it a smooth blowout with a soft-bristle round brush.
  2. Then, she misted Emily’s hair with René Furterer VEGETAL FINISHING SPRAY before giving it  a low side part and securing the ponytail.
  3. Another spritz of the FINISHING SPRAY guaranteed extra hold before she twisted the ponytail into a bun at the nape of the neck behind the ear and secured it with bobby pins.

Laini Reeves Troubleshooting Tips:

  • To create texture lightly back-comb the ponytail to make the hair easier to secure.
  • When styling your own look, always make sure everything is perfect before preparing the bun.
  • A small amount of René Furterer STYLING WAX will smooth flyaways.

Trend to Try: Braids

Braided styles feel fresh for fall, especially when worn in an up-do. This pretty style (courtesy of Aveda) works for all hair types, from fine and straight to thick and curly.

  1. Prep hair with a texturizer and blow dry hair smooth. Try Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep, $24 at aveda.com.
  2. Use a tail comb to make a straight center part from forehead to nape of neck.
  3. Make an inverted fishtail braid on each side of the head, beginning at the crown and working to the back of the ear. Secure the end of each braid with an elastic band.
  4. Use hairspray to tame flyaways. You’ll like  Aveda Air Control Hair Spray, $24 at aveda.com.
  5. Add some fullness by gently massaging braids.
  6. Fold the braids over one another across the back of the head, just above the nape, in a crisscross fashion. Tuck ends under and secure with bobby pins.
  7. Finish with a light mist of hair spray for staying power.

Gorgeous Hair in 3 Easy Steps

I’m LOVING Keri Russell’s look at the NYC premiere of her latest film, Austenland…so much in fact that I’ll definitely be wearing my hair this way quite often come fall! If your hair is shoulder-length or longer you’ll want to give it a go.

Celebrity hairstylist Brian Magallones gave Russell her super-shiny glam waves using René Furterer styling products. Here’s how you can do it too:

  1. Beginning with clean, dry hair, part hair deeply on the side.
  2. Wrap 2-inch-wide sections around the barrel of a 1 ¼-inch curling iron.
  3. Flat iron sections along the bottom few inches of hair to make it modern.

Rub a little René Furterer MODELING PASTE between your fingers and smooth out flyaways around the hairline. Follow up with a quick hit of  René Furterer VEGETAL FINISHING SPRAY for natural control with just enough movement. Finish with a light misting of René Furterer GLOSSING SPRAY for mega shine. Gorgeous!
