We think Amy Adams is just the bee’s knees, don’t you? Such a great actress, and we bet she’d be a lot of fun to hang out with too.
Didn’t that blue Marchesa gown look simply amazing on her? The perfect colour for her complexion. And we loved how celebrity stylist Laini Reeves coiffed the Golden Globes nominee’s red locks in a flowing, back-braided updo.
Here is how you can recreate this look:
Adams’ hair was prepped for styling by being washed with Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo and then conditioned with Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner.
Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream was applied while the hair was drying, from root to end to give soft hold while further smoothing the texture and adding definition and shine. Reeves rough-dried Adam’s hair with her hands to get the water out and created a bit of a messed up texture with a slight touch of wave for a more modern, freer look. The hair was air dried except at the roots, where a blow dryer was used.
Next, a 1” curling iron was used to make curls in different parts of the hair that needed to be filled in and then smoothed and blended them in. Reeves made a side part and prepared some pieces from the front of the hair to frame her face, pinning them in an “S”-shape and away from the rest of the hair.
Reeves then gathered and pulled back the rest of hair, made a loose braid that she doubled up, rolled upwards and pinned at the nape, with the cross texture side of the braid showing. Only five thick bobby pins were used to secure the style in place.
Finally, the stylist released the “S”-shaped sections in the front and pinned them behind the ear to open her face up and to show off her cheek bones. Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray was used to keep everything in place with movable shine, without looking like it was sprayed.
