Want to copy Natalie Portman’s side-swept, embellished bun?
It’s surprisingly easy to get a low, side chignon like the one Natalie wore to the Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City on November 30. Mark Townsend, the man behind the do, first made a drastic side part using a comb. “Next, I gathered Natalie’s hair into a ponytail behind her left ear and then braided the pony and secured it with an elastic about 2 inches from the ends. Then, I looped the ponytail around the base and secured with a few bobby pins. To punch up the glam I put a bobby pin from Jennifer Behr at the top of the bun,” Mark says. – Marta Topran
