Lily Collins’ Retro Hairstyle — Get The Look
Lily, 24, looked stunning in her black lace ensemble — and her hairstylist, Mara Roszak, even reveals that her sexy dress inspired her classic hairstyle:
Lily wore a gorgeous cut out dress that showed off her beautiful shape. It was [that] classic yet incredibly sexy look that inspired the 40’s brushed waves.
Mara explains the process of crafting Lily’s head-turning hairstyle:
[I] Applied mousse to Lily’s damp hair and rough dried. I then curled sections of her hair around a 3/4″ barrel iron towards the face and pin curled.
The key is to create the perfect “s” wave in front of the face by manipulating it with a comb and pinning in place. Once the head was set I sprayed all over with L’Oreal Extra Stong Hold Elnett Hairspray.
After allowing the hair to sit and cool down, I removed all the pins and brushed out the hair with a wide tooth comb, breaking up the waves and creating a softer look.
Lily’s gorgeous makeup was done by makeup artist Kayleen McAdams. Her painted purple pout definitely gave her Old Hollywood glam look some modern edge.
