When confronted with a heat wave, hairstylist Peter Butler opted to put Claire Danes’ hair up in a faux bob for last night’s Emmy Awards. “At first, I envisioned a Grace Kelly Goes to the Beach look, but that style was too rough and raw. We wanted polished and red carpet-ready, so we opted for Grace Kelly Goes to Palm Springs,” he said. Here’s how he got the look.
“I began by blowing her hair out with Leonor Greyl Mousse A Lotus Volumatrice to impart a little lift. I sprayed her roots with Leonor Greyl Voluforme as I curled her hair, then let that cool and set. To make the texture more natural, I brushed out the waves and added Leonor Greyl Eclat Natural to smooth flyaways. I finished by pinning it up and tucking the right side behind her ear.
Right before she walked out the door, I spritzed on a finishing touch of Leonor Greyl Lacque Souple to nail it down. She’s got a golden nude makeup look and elegant hair. As she stepped on the red carpet she said, ‘I feel like I’m going to Bob Hope’s house!’ with a laugh.”
