Get the Look: Carmen Ejogo's Twisted Ponytail at the Independent Spirit Awards

Celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway worked with Carmen Ejogo for the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday, February 21st in Santa Monica, CA. Redway gave the Selma star a not-so-basic ponytail, adding interest by incorporating a chic, knot.


Get the Look:
1. Says Redway, "I blew-dry Carmen’s naturally curly hair with a Mason Pearson Flat Brush while using Serge Normant Meta Lush Volumizer.

2. "Once dry, I flat-ironed sections of hair with a Harry Josh Pro Flat Iron before brushing hair into a ponytail.  

3. "Once hair was secured in a ponytail, I took a piece from the ponytail to hide the hair band. I then split the ponytail into two sections and wrapped the right section around the left section to create a knot. After creating the knot, I used Goody Hair Pins to pin the loose section of hair close to the nape of the neck.  

4. "I finished off the look with Oribe Anti-Humidity Hairspray."
