Debra Messing At The Tony Awards — Get Her Exact Hair

Fred Leighton jewels inspired me to create this polished chignon tonight for Debra for the TONYS!” Ted told

“Here’s what is important if you are going to create one for yourself at home. You need three things:

1. Flat iron: to make sure hair has no curves

2. Bungee elastic: to hold the ponytail in place

3. Tame it shine lotion: to give the best shine possible

I used build it blow-drying agent to blow her hair out first, then used a flatiron at 350 degrees by taking 1-inch sections to make sure the hair is extremely flat. I pulled everything to the crown of the head using tame it shine lotion and my bungee elastic to put in a tight ponytail. After backcombing the entire ponytail, I twisted the hair onto itself, and pinned with hair pins — they are very easy to secure hair and not heavy. I then sprayed beautiful hold hairspray to hold in place. There you have it — glamorous, elegant, Hollywood hair!”

Thanks for sharing your tips Ted!
