Elizabeth Olsen’s City Harvest Hair — Get Her Exact Look

“The idea of this particular textured bun is effortless chic,” Ted tells

“There was a lot of embellishment on the collar [of her dress] so the hair needed to be up and not down. I started off with Build It Blowdrying Agent and Tame It Shine Lotion. I blew her hair dry with my fingers in a twisting motion, so that I could get the hair to have a roughed-up surface as opposed to smooth.”

“After the blow-dry, I used a little more Tame It into the hair then pulled everything into a low ponytail. After the ponytail, I used small elastics about 3 inches apart down the pony. Securing small areas on the pony, I twisted the knot to look almost Japanese in effect. I sprayed Beautiful Hold Hairspray over the entire head then roughed up the top of her head with my fingers. It turned out super pretty and she loved it!”

We love it too! Would you wear a messy bun like Elizabeth, HollywoodLifers?
