Celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath recently worked with actress Rashida Jones for the premiere of Disney's Big Hero 6 in Los Angeles, CA. Said Heath, "We were inspired by the high neck and coolness of [Rashida's] electric blue pantsuit to create a braided, messy topknot."
Get the Look:
1. Says Heath, "Starting on damp hair, I sprayed Bumble and bumble Tonic Lotion from the roots to the mid-shaft and Serge Normant Meta Lush Volumizer from the mid shaft through the ends. I rough-dried Rashida's hair and then polished the ends and bangs with an Ibiza Round Brush.
2. "Once the hair was dry, I sectioned off the front near the top of one ear to the other. Using a fine tooth comb and a light spray of R+Co Outer Space Hairspray, I pulled the hair up into a ponytail at the top of the section. I then pulled the front section back and sprayed with more R+Co, adding it to the ponytail, leaving only the bangs out. Tip: The trick to a perfect ponytail is pulling it up in sections.
3. "I then broke the pony into five sections, braiding three and lightly teasing two. I wrapped each section around the base of the ponytail and pinned them into place, creating a braided messy topknot.
4. "Once the hair was up, I round-brushed the bangs to fall to one side. I sprayed the bangs and bun with Leonor Greyl Laque Souple for added hold and shine."
