Alicia Vikander just found summer’s coolest hairstyle! The actress attended the premiere for ‘Jason Bourne’ with a side ponytail that was full of twists and messy texture. Find out how to copy her look, ahead.
Alicia Vikander, 27, just took the ponytail from basic to badass. While attending the European premiere of her new movie, Jason Bourne, in London, Alicia sported a twisted low ponytail we’re obsessed with.
While Alicia paired her hairstyle with a custom sequin gown from Louis Vuitton, the versatile pony works with casual pieces as well as more dressed up looks thanks to its messy texture.
George Northwood, who also works with model (and master of the undone waves) Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, was behind Alicia’s genius look. Not only does it add a boho effect perfect for summer, but the undone finish also means it’s easier to recreate since you don’t have to worry about getting a perfect ponytail.
To recreate this look, start on second-day hair for Alicia’s textured effect. Or, fake it with a volumizing dry spray like Redken Wind Blown 05 Finishing Spray (or even your favorite dry shampoo). Once you’ve got volumized locks, create a rough side part and twist several small sections of your hair on either side, using bobby pins to keep them in place. Next, gather your hair into a low ponytail and secure with a dark elastic.
To create the bubble effect George added to Alicia’s look, add another elastic several inches down your pony and repeat until you reach the ends. Then, finish by gently pulling at the bubbles for a more volumized, messy look and mist with hairspray to keep it all in place.
George even shared an up-close look at his twisted creation so we could see every detail that went into the finished look:
