Saoirse Ronan rocked a stunning, ethereal updo at the premiere for her upcoming film ‘Brooklyn’ in New York City on Oct. 7. Get her exact updo for your next formal event below!

Saoirse Ronan, 21, is giving us major bridal beauty inspo — her gorgeous updo at the Brooklyn premiere was amazing — and we have tips from her stylist on how you can copy the exact look!

Celebrity hairstylist (and one of our faves!) Adir Abergel created the gorgeous updo for Saoirse using Leonor Greyl products.

“Soft and hard were the two elements of her dress: the softness of the lace and the harder textures of the leather. I mimicked an ethereal feel with some edge by adding a golden metal flower headband to the back of the head with the soft textured hair,” Adir told

He used Leonor Greyl Mousse Au Lotus Volumatrice on the roots through the mid shaft for a dry, textured look.

“Once the hair was completely dry, I took a ¾ inch iron and curled the hair into a soft wave by tugging on the curl while it was still hot to relax it. To make it look natural, I left the ends out.”

He used a dime-sized amount of Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel Styling Cream for separation throughout the hair. Next, he applied Leonor Greyl Laque Souple Styling Spray to “lock in the wave and for a romantic, undone appearance.”

“After hand raking it back, keeping lots of volume at the roots and the crown, I twisted the hair into a half French twist. I pinned the half-twist into place, and then I took the flower headband and put the headband under the French twist, just above the nape. Whatever hair was left underneath, I twisted and then pinned into place with a few bobby pins, so it became a ponytail at the bottom. Then I took a few of those hairs to cover half of the headband so it wasn’t completely exposed.”

To hold the look in place, he used Leonor Greyl Laque Souple Styling Spray: “It gave the look a bit more grit. All the texture was a perfect juxtaposition against the duality of the softness and the hardness.”

Do you love her French twist updo? Would you wear this look?
