Celebrity Stylist Thomas Dunkin gave Lily Collins a perfectly polished updo using Sebastian Professional for the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards held last night in New York City.
“I wanted to give Lily a mature, very grown up style,” says Thomas on the inspiration for this look.
1. Wash the hair with Sebastian Professional Trilliance Shampoo and Conditioner for enhanced shine.
2. Towel dry the hair and apply a liberal amount of Sebastian Professional Potion 9 to the lengths of the hair for a smooth, polished texture.
3. Blow-dry the hair straight and flat at the roots to create the stark contrast between the sleek, flat front and voluminous back.
4. Once the hair is dry, create a tight ponytail and pull it through the center of a hair donut. Secure the donut in place with bobby pins.
5. Backcomb the ponytail and wrap the hair smoothly around and under the donut. Use a comb to maintain the smooth look and then pin the hair under the donut.
6. Once the big sleek bun is achieved, emulsify Sebastian Professional Liquid Steel in palms and smooth it over the hair beginning at the front to ensure there are no hairs out of place.
7. For incredible shine, finish the look with Sebastian Professional Trilliant.
