ELIZABETH BANKS AT 2013 MET GALA
CELEBRITY STYLIST MATTHEW MONZON FOR DAVINES
“Elizabeth wore an amazing Versace gold chain dress with a custom pair of Brian Atwood Shoes (her date). With the drama of the outfit, we didn’t want her hair to be too insane, so we tried to downplay it a little bit, but keep the punk effect. We came up with a cool, sleek ponytail that had a sculptural effect when fused to the head with barrettes in the back.“ — Monzon
How To Get The Look:
Spray a generous amount of Davines Melu Shied onto damp hair. Follow by putting a healthy amount of Davines For Wizards No 3 Universal Mattering Mousse throughout the hair along with a few pumps of Davines OI/OIL on the ends.
Blow dry with a big paddle brush to try to maintain the sleek straightness, avoiding any “bend.” Add extensions, when desired.
Create a masculine, sleek square look in the front. Once the squareness is established, pull hair into a ponytail at the crown of the head. Do this by first focusing on pulling hair from the nape, then the sides, and lastly the top. Secure with a bungee band and take a 1/4 inch of hair and wrap it around to hide the band.
Use 3x 2 1/2 inch goody barrettes and secure the ponytail at the nape of the neck, holding the ponytail to the head, which gives a good, strong structural shape.
