Hairstyle: Minka Kelly At ‘The Butler’ Premiere

Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend styled Minka Kelly’s hair for The Butler premiere in LA last night. I think her portrayal of Jackie Kennedy will be phenomenal. But she’ll always be Lyla Garrity to me. And this? This is a Riggins-date worthy ‘do. Here’s how Mark got the look. 

“For ‘The Butler’ premiere, I wanted Minka’s hair to be young, fun, and sexy so we decided to work with her hair’s natural texture and fullness and go for a half-up hairstyle. I started by applying a large dollop of the Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse to Minka’s damp hair and dried with a diffuser attached to my blow dryer to keep as much of Minka’s natural curl intact. For extra volume at the crown of the head, I took 2 inch sections of hair and sprayed the Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo at the roots and then back combed the roots for fullness. Next, I pulled the sides of the hair to the back and secured with bobby pins creating a loose half-up hairstyle. I finished by spraying Sally Hershberger Texture Blast all over and scrunching with my hands for hold and lots of texture.”
