Low buns were the hair du jour for red carpet veterans like Nicole Kidman and Kate Winslet to rising stars like Kristen Bell and Lea Michele at the Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 17. “The low chignon is a very cool look, it works on women of every age,” says Frederic Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Renato Campora who spent 45-minutes creating Kate’s pretty, tousled bun. “The undone, textured feel is more modern and very glamorous,” Renato says.
Here’s how Renato got Kate’s low, tousled bun!
- “To wet hair, I applied mousse and glossing cream to create foundation and texture.”
- “I created the side part and did pin curls all over the head then used a diffuser to dry all the curls.”
- “When the hair was 80 percent dry, I took the pin curls out then use my fingers and the diffuser to create a more natural feeling as well.”
- “Then, once all the hair was dry I used dry shampoo to make the hair thicker. It makes it easier to pin because it makes the hair more texturized. Texture makes all the difference. Once you put the right products in you can create any shapes and forms that you like to do.”
- “To create the chignon, I pulled all the hair down into a low pony tail. I wrapped the hair around itself. And secured with long pins. Then, I left lose the piece in the front to frame the face give some softness to the look. I finished with hair spray.”
