Kate was a vision at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner with slicked back hair and smoldering eye makeup. We chatted with celeb hairstylist Brian Magallones, who created the ‘do, so you can look like a star at home!
Kate Mara plays a Washington heavyweight on the hit Netflix series House Of Cards so we were not at all surprised to see her at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on April 27 in Washington, D.C. Stylist Brian Magallones created her sleek hair to compliment her feminine Prada gown, and it was a total hit! Get her exact look below!
Kate Mara At White House Correspondents’ Dinner — Get Her Exact Look
Brian started off by curling Kate’s hair with the amika 25mm Tourmaline Curler. “A great tip when doing any updo is to always curl the hair first. Having a curl in the hair helps to get the finished look as clean as possible. If the hair is straight then there will be too many fly-aways and the end result can look very static,” Brian says.
“The second step was to pull her hair into a sleek ponytail at the nape of the neck. Brian gave her a deep side part, and made the part at a slight angle to give it a bit of asymmetry. He then rubbed a bit of KMSCalifornia HAIRPLAY gel wax in his palms and smoothed it over her hair as he brushed her hair back into a low ponytail. He then secured it at the nape of her neck, being sure to get it as sleek as possible.
Brian then took a one inch section of hair from the bottom of the ponytail and created a single braid.
He then twisted the remaining hair up and around into a bun, securing with hairpins along the way, while leaving the braid hanging out.
Once the bun was secure, he took the braid and wrapped it around the bun, securing with hairpins. The braid is always a nice way to add texture, and take a simple bun to the next level.
Finally he secured the whole look with KMS California HAIRSTAY maximum hold spray, and then a light shine mist, to keep her looking sleek and chic all night long!”
