Seriously, step away from the straight iron and try a new look tonight à la Isla Fisher’s flirty ‘do. Celeb stylist Matt Fugate (who works on celebs like Jess Stam and January Jones) tells you how to get her look at home:
OK!: Why is this look sexy for a Saturday night date or party?
Matt Fugate: It’s a little bit more modern Brigitte Bardot. Everybody loves seeing women with their hair up—it brings the eye up. So, if you can really get that height up so that it works off the jawline, it’s the sexiest little updo you can do. Like Brigitte Bardot meets Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but younger and more cute.
OK!: How do you get it?
MF: What you are going to want to do is section off your crown, then take all your hair (except a few little tendrils that you have hanging in front—leave those out) and pull it up into a really cute, twisted, messy, little bun and secure with hair pins. Then with the crown that you have left out, you want to put some dry shampoo in and back comb from the back. Don’t back comb the forward pieces first because you want the forward pieces to still be smooth so you can pull those over. Once you get the crown backcombed to the perfect height, lightly smooth back the crown so that both pieces can wrap around the hair that you have gathered and then pin it. The messiness and undone, flirty feel should be the whole point. You don’t want it too perfect because it will look dated—you want to look young and fresh.
OK!: What’s the one key product you need?
MF: A volumizing hairspray to prep your hair with like Sally Hershberger’s Body Fix or Shu Umera’s Volume Maker, which is a great dry shampoo that you can actually brush onto your roots and then backcomb down. That creates a pad that is going to last all night so your hair doesn’t fall flat.
