Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Gorgeous Hair Secrets From Her Celebrity Hairstylist!

Rosie has been appearing everywhere lately promoting her new film, ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ and we haven’t caught her with a bad hair day yet! Her celebrity hairstylist Yiotis Panayiotou explains how YOU can have consistently gorgeous hair too.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has great hair, but it takes work. Yiotis Panayiotou explains in five easy steps how you can prep your hair so that every hairstyle you try comes out looking red carpet ready and then how you can get Rosie’s exact look from this picture!

Here’s what Yiotis does to prep Rosie’s hair for the red carpet:

  • Every time I style Rosie’s hair, I begin with the same process. First, I bathe the hair in Leonor Greyl Shampooing au Miel, a gentle volumizing shampoo that can be used every day.
  • Then, I make sure to condition her hair with a masque because it is vital to keep the hair well-nourished, especially in a humid, polluted environment like New York City. I like to use either the Masque Fleurs de Jasmin or Masque à l’Orchidée on Rosie, and I usually pick the Masque Fleurs de Jasmin for daytime and the Masque à l’Orchidée for evening.
  • After bathing and conditioning the hair, I apply a few drops of Regenerescence Naturelle, a blend of botanical and essential oils and work it into the scalp for a relaxing massage.
  • Then, I begin styling, making sure to not overdo it with products—I always want Rosie’s hair to stay light and volumized, and too much product will weigh it down.
  • For the Transformers: Dark of the Moon premiere, I wanted to go for a glamorous, Old Hollywood look to complement Rosie’s dress; it was almost Jessica Rabbit-inspired. This style transcends all cultures and hair types, and it is universally flattering.
  • After blow-drying again, I curled large sections of hair with a medium-barreled curling iron. The key to curling the hair this way is to react differently to the hair on different parts of the head: in the back, I curled upward starting at the ends of the hair, but to ensure that the curls fall nicely, stop before getting all the way to the roots. In the front and on the sides, I curled sections in alternating directions and pinned them into pin curls to allow them to set. Then, I removed the pins and lightly brushed through with a large, flat brush. I sprayed the hair with Voluforme and applied a little Sérum de Soie Sublimateur to the ends and pinned one side back for balance and texture.
