Though I was iffy on Cameron Diaz‘ short hairstyle for a long time, I’m loving her look for the What To Expect When You’re Expecting U.K. premiere. And, I’ve just scored the deets from her stylist Sascha Breuer on how to get the look. Here, the beauty breakdown. In Sascha’s words:
“Cameron is one of my favorite hair chameleons, always adapting her newly shorter hairstyle to perfection.
To get Cameron Diaz’ hairstyle at the What To Expect When You’re Expecting U.K. premiere, start by applying a golf ball size dab of mousse to the palm of your hand and use a wide toothed comb to pick up a small amounts and comb it through the roots in the areas where you want to add volume and hold. Then, dry it using your fingers or a skeleton brush–working with your natural texture and movement using a hairdryer that allows you to adjust the heat. (Fine or fragile hair should be dried at a lower temperature to reduce the risk of damage.) I rely on the Braun Satin Hair 7 Range in part because of the adjustable temperature feature.
For finishing products, I am not a huge fan of waxes. They give very little hold, and often the hair becomes greasy and loses the shape. I prefer instead a strong hold hairspray that dries quickly such as Wellaflex for Shiny Hold–giving the hair definition and texture without becoming stiff or hard and creating the dreaded helmet! It’s important to use one you can brush through easily to restyle when transitioning from your day to evening look.
To define the texture and create an interesting twist, a great trick is to spray some of the hairspray on your finger tips , and then twist, pinch, tousel or scrunch your hair to create definition and depth to your style. Then finish it off with a light, all-over misting.”
