Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Hairstylist's Genius Trick for Banishing Flyaways
It's true: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley could wear a burlap sack on the red carpet and we wouldn't bat an eye. In fact, she'd probably look as chic as ever. But tonight at the Met Gala 2016, wearing a dreamy white gown with touches of metallic accents in honour of the industrial "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology" theme, the model lit up the room—er, tent.
Hairstylist Christian Wood chose to do a slicked-back low chignon on the model, telling us, "I definitely wanted to do something that was just simple and classic and almost Old Hollywood but in a modern way of doing simple, slick, and tight—let the dress and the beauty of the face speak for itself, and the hair just sort of blends into the whole thing." Check out an earlier snap of Wood hamming it up with RHW while styling her tresses below!
While we weren't surprised that Wood opted for a simple 'do to complement her angelic gown, he did let us in on a surprising trick for smoothing out flyaways without disturbing the hair once the look is completed. His trick? Using a makeup brush.
"I finished off the look with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray (£20) to sort of give it some radiance and shine. I like to apply it to the end of a makeup powder brush and dust the hair with the brush to tame flyaways without actually using the fingers and damaging the hair." Brilliant! Add that to the list of alternate uses for makeup brushes, right below Kylie Jenner's moisturiser application tip.
