Get the Look: Elizabeth Banks at the Hunger Games Premiere.

Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Adir Abergel Created A Futuristic 1960’s look for Elizabeth Banks at the Hunger Games Premiere

INSPIRATION: Adir wanted to create a Barbarella inspired bob; the look was a futuristic take on a 1960’s style

How To Get the Look: Adir began by applying Fekkai Ironless Straightening Balm from the roots to the ends of wet hair. He then blow-dried the hair with a round brush until it was completely straight. Adir backcombed the top of the hair to add height and then smoothed it back into a sixties half back style. He secured the hair with a few bobby pins. To give the hair a mirror finish, Adir applied Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Cream to the ends of the hair. He finished the look by spraying Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray for an all night hold, with a natural feel.

All products by Fekkai: Fekkai Coiff Ironless Straightening Balm ($25), Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Cream ($25), Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($25). Available at and Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.

She looks amazing, I can’t wait to see the movie!

Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend styled Jennifer Lawrence’s hair tonight for The Hunger Games premiere in LA. See below for steps from Mark that women can follow to create this long-lasting style at home.

– “I started by applying a large dollop of Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse to Jennifer’s damp hair and blow dried with a large round brush.
– Next, I took 3-inch sections of hair and sprayed Dove Style+Care Thermal Replenishment Spray on the hair before wrapping it around a 1-inch curling iron.
– -Then, I sprayed Sally Hershberger Genius Spray Wax all over to give her hair second-day texture. I took two Jennifer Behr headbands and braided them into her hair, and then pinned the braid into a bun. I always spray Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo on my Bobby pins for extra hold.
– I finished by spraying Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray all over to keep every hair in place all night.”
