If we had to pick one lady who stood out among all the rest at this year’s Met Gala, it would have to be January Jones. Her stylist, Mark Townsend, shared with BeautySweetSpot the secrets behind the actress’s gorgeous updo.
“I think the whole look was really inspired by this years Met Ball theme of American Woman,” notes Townsend. This was a very modern, and almost futuristic take on a very classic American silhouette.”
Inspired by her detailed YSL dress, Townsend chose to juxtapose classic with modern using all Dove hair products to get the perfect texture and finish. Here’s how to get this look at home:
Apply sprays like Dove Heat Defense Protect and Shine Mist to protect hair from damage resulting from heat styling. Then, apply volumizing mousse for volume and hold without stiffness.
Blow dry with a large round brush and backcomb roots at top for more body.
For an oversized French twist, backcomb all the hair towards the back before securing the twist. Apply Dove Frizz Control Taming Cream to tame flyaways at the top and to the right side of the twist for some rocker-like texture. Twist hair in back and fasten with a few bobby pins.
