Minka Kelly Hair Butler Premiere

Minka embodied retro glamour at the premiere of ‘The Butler’ at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, Calif. on August 12. Her hair was flirty and romantic — luckily, her hairstylist is spilling his secrets to you, HollywoodLifers!

Minka Kelly, 33, wore a gorgeous red Dolce & Gabbana dress at the premiere of her new movie. Her skin was golden and luminous and her gorgeous eyes were rimmed with black liner. Her hair was half up with a slight bouffant — we’ve got the step-by-step on her exact look below!

Minka Kelly’s Hair At ‘Butler’ Premiere — Romantic Updo

For The Butler premiere, I wanted Minka’s hair to be young, fun, and sexy so we decided to work with her hair’s natural texture and fullness and go for a half-up hairstyle. I started by applying a large dollop of the Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse to Minka’s damp hair and dried with a diffuser attached to my blow dryer to keep as much of Minka’s natural curl intact. For extra volume at the crown of the head, I took 2 inch sections of hair and sprayed the Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo at the roots and then back combed the roots for fullness. Next, I pulled the sides of the hair to the back and secured with bobby pins creating a loose half-up hairstyle. I finished by spraying Sally Hershberger Texture Blast all over and scrunching with my hands for hold and lots of texture. Did you love Minka’s hair, HollywoodLifers?
