Here is how to get Kristen’ low chignon:

“I really wanted Kristen’s hair to be up in order to show off her amazing Fred Leighton choker and Balenciaga gown. I gave her a deep side part and pulled her hair into a low chignon, creating a silhouette that has a hint of 20s, but the texture keeps it completely modern.
To get this hairstyle I started by applying the new Dove Style+Care Nourishing Amplifier Mousse to her hair and blew it dry with a round brush.
Next I sprayed Oribe Dry Texture Spray all over before pulling the hair into a low chignon and secured with bobby pins.
To keep her in place all night, I finished with the new Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray; I love this spray because it has amazing hold and gives the hair great shine that is still soft to the touch.”

Here is how to get Lea’s Soft, Touchable Hair:

“I was so inspired by Lea and her Atelier Versace gown and wanted to give her a hairstyle that was soft, sexy, and touchable.
I started by applying a large dollop of the new Dove Style+Care Nourishing Amplifier Mousse to Lea’s damp hair and blow dried with a large round brush for volume.
Next, I took a dime-size amount of the new Dove Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum in my hands and rubbed them together to warm up the product, and then raked my hands through her hair. I am obsessed with this cream; it gives the hair amazing shine and separation, and also nourishes the hair too so it’s like having a styling product and a conditioner in one bottle.
I pulled her hair into a loose bun while Lea had her makeup done to set a loose wave in her hair. Then, I let the hair down and sprayed Oribe Après Beach Spray all over to give the hair that great sexy “second-day” hair.
Just before Lea left for the red carpet, I finished her hairstyle by spraying the new Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray all over to keep her hair in place without it looking stiff or crunchy.”
