Emmy Award nominee for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (House of Cards) Robin Wright looked beautiful on the red carpet tonight. The star wore a dramatic black silk Ralph Lauren gown and an elegant short hair look freshly cut and styled by celebrity hair stylist Paul Norton for Revita by DS Laboratories.
Inspired by images of flowing, shaggy 1960’s boy cuts, the look highlighted slightly messy, peek-a-boo bangs that touched the eyebrows and sensuously flowed to the right. The cool look was designed so that the full-volume bangs could move freely and part well on either side.
How the Look Was Created:
Since texture was a major component to the success of this beautiful short look, the shampoo and conditioner prep played a more than typical role in creating and maintaining the look, and much more.
“I started by shampooing Robin’s fine hair with Revita. LT Hair Stimulating Shampoo from DS Laboratories to add volume, moisture and elasticity to the hair,” explained Norton. “It’s also great to help stimulate faster-growing hair, something we’re working on with Robin."
“I applied Revita Cor Conditioner to smooth and condition her strands, then sprayed on Spectral RS from DS Laboratories on her damp hair at the root, to give lift and texture. A leave-in treatment, Spectral RS is anti-aging, and helps encourage fuller, thicker, and stronger growing hair, its primary purpose. I really like how it maintains the health of the hair as it grows, especially for clients who want to reduce the number of extensions they wear."
“I tousled her hair dry and flat-wrapped it in every direction with a Mason Pearson brush so it could flit in every direction (without a part), and then brushed hair forward and down to frame the face."
“Next, I mixed a cream pomade and a waxy paste together to create pliable texture. Patting the hair gently, I twirled little pieces with my fingers to separate. Robin’s hair is blond with a dark base, and I knew this definition would pick up nicely on the red carpet."
“To complete, I lightly combed her bangs, swept them to the right and sprayed a light medium-hold hairspray. It was important for hair to look as if it was product-free and looked as if she had just run her fingers through it."
