Dove celebrity stylist Mark Townsend wanted to give Minka Kelly a young, fun and sexy style for the Los Angeles premiere of The Butler, in which she portrays Jackie Kennedy, so he settled on this stunning, voluminous half-up do. Here he explains how he achieved the look.
• “I started by applying a large dollop of Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse to Minka’s damp hair and dried with a diffuser attached to my blow dryer to keep as much of her natural curl intact.”
• “For extra volume at the crown of the head, I took 2-inch sections of hair and sprayed Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo at the roots, then back combed the roots for fullness.”
• “Next, I pulled the sides of the hair to the back and secured with bobby pins, creating a loose half-up hairstyle.”
• “I finished by spraying Sally Hershberger Texture Blast all over and scrunching with my hands for hold and lots of texture.”
To amp up the glam factor, Minka donned a Crystal Feather Barrette by Jennifer Behr, which retails for $365.
