Get The Look: Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Johnson at the Toronto International Film Festival

See below for details on how Mark got Elizabeth and Dakota ready for their respective premieres, thanks to Dove Hair!

Elizabeth Olsen Premiere Look
“For the ‘I Saw The Light’ premiere, Elizabeth and I talked about doing an up-do and we wanted to keep it chic and not too overdone. Textured up styles are such a huge trend because the hair is away from the face but still has a style to it.” – Mark

Step 1
Start by placing a few drops of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil on damp hair and comb it through. I’m obsessed with this oil because it nourishes the hair from the inside and then seals the cuticle for smooth, silky hair. It never weighs the hair down!

Step 2
Add a dollop of Dove Style + Care Nourishing Curls Mousse to hair and scrunch while blow-drying for texture.

Step 3
When the hair is dry, take a small amount of Sally Hershberger 24K Texturizing Paste in hands and rake it through the hair for cool texture, hold, and to tame the flyaway hairs.

Step 4
Then pull the hair back and twist it into a bun (you could easily pull hair into a ponytail and then wrap the ponytail around the base) and secure with bobby pins. When putting in bobby pins, always use an even number and apply them in “X” formation for added security.

Step 5
To keep the hair in place (throughout the premiere and after party), finish by liberally spraying Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray all over.

Dakota Johnson Premiere Look
“For the premiere of ‘Black Mass’, Dakota Johnson inspired and encouraged me to do my favorite thing ­ a textured up do! When I first saw the stunning Alexander McQueen dress she chose for the premiere my mind was overloaded with inspiration. We made the decision to do messy knots in the back and a side part with her fringe. I loved the finished look and so did she!” – Mark

Get The Look!

Step 1
Start by applying a few drops of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil to damp hair from mid lengths to ends to seal the cuticle.

Step 2
Spray Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray on roots and blow-dry with a round brush. When the hair is dry, take random sections of hair varying from 1 inch to 4 inches and wrap the hair in a figure 8 using the R Session Pro Tools Tidal Waver to create bends throughout the Hair.

Step 3
Take Sally Hershberger 24K Texturizing Paste in hands and rake through hair to make it piecey and to give some hold to the hair.

Step 4
With shoulder length hair like Dakota’s I knew it would be difficult to pull it all back and up in one action — take 2 to 4 inch sections of hair and twist back to create little knots at the nape of the neck, securing each one with 2 bobby pins in an “X” formation. I left the back quite messy because we liked the juxtaposition with the smooth front. Leave some whispy pieces around the face if you wish and blow-dry the fringe to the side with a flat brush.

Step 5
Finish by very liberally spraying Dove Style + Care Extra Hold Hairspray all over hair (to last all night!)

Summer Hair Survival with Dove!

dove summer suvival

Summer is synonymous with BBQs, beach trips and dips in the pool. While all that fun in the sun may be good for the soul – humidity, saltwater and chlorine can leave your locks looking dull, frizzy and damaged.

Fortunately, with the help of Dove Hair, strands don’t need to suffer this season. The following must-have products provide volume and bounce, beat frizz, and add moisture and nourishment for hair that promises to turn heads through Labor Day!

 

dove dry shampoo ss

This is my favorite dry shampoo, I won’t admit how many bottles I have in my bathroom right now. I stock up in fear of the stores running out. Its everything a dry shampoo should be cleansing, great smelling and easy to use. And the best part its $4!! I have used a lot of high end dry shampoo’s that couldn’t hold a candle to the Dove formula. Proof you don’t always have to pay more for great products.

We are in camping season in the PNW and I have been branching out and camping at spots without showers. ACK! Being a shower and hair washing junkie that has been a learning curve. I can get dirty with the best of them but love my night time showers and clean hair. Now I have Dove Refresh Dry Shampoo a few spritzes then work through my hair and it smells amazing and looks great. How did I live before?

Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo – for when you opt out of washing. Washing your hair every day in the summer can strip it of essential oils, leaving it dry and damaged. Try swapping in dry shampoo to absorb oil between traditional washes so that strands look and feel refreshed.

  • Formulated for all hair types
  • Weightless formula refreshes and invigorates hair between regular washes to transform hair from lifeless to bouncy
  • Contains a freshly-washed scent
  • $3.99, Dove.com

dove quench mask

Summer always does a number on my hair. With long hours spend in the sun and water my fine hair takes a beating. My curls get a bit wacky and can’t decide what to do. I really love the new Dove Quench Absolute Restoration Mask. I used it after my last camping trip and after 3 days of swimming and sun my hair was very dry. I washed my hair put a dollop of mask on my hair and worked through the ends. After shaving I rinsed the mask and was amazed how smooth and tangle free my hair was. It was soft without being weighed down and my curls got a nice hydrating boost.

Dove Quench Absolute Restoration Mask
This luxuriously rich mask quenches dehydrated hair for perfectly nourished curls, without weighing them down – making it our best deep conditioner for naturally curly hair. The creamy formula penetrates each and every one of your curls for true definition.

  • Hydrates hair
  • Nourishment and shine
  • Defined curls
  • Reduced frizz
  • $5.99, Dove.com

dove intensive repair

When your hair is really screaming for help look no further then the Dove Intensive Repair Deep Treatment Mask. The formula is thick and creamy and smells fantastic. The ends of my hair were feeling a bit straw like so I washed and applied the Intensive Repair Mask from the mid shaft to the ends. For a super deep treatment I put a plastic cap on my hair and then wrapped a towel on my head to increase the heat and deep conditioning.

After 10 minutes I rinsed and was amazing how much stronger and shinier my hair was. And even after drying it was soft and smooth and the ends looked great. A fantastic deep treatment that doesn’t leave any residue or build up on my hair.

Dove Intensive Repair Deep Treatment Mask
Despite valiant efforts to keep your hair from the inevitable damage that comes with summertime fun, you’ll want a multi-tasking mask on hand to replenish moisture every 1-2 weeks. This lightweight formula works to repair and protect hair from over washing and sun damage.

  • Formulated for all hair types
  • Contains Keratin Actives to help restore weakened proteins and fortify weak and damaged hair
  • Lightweight, non-greasy formula that nourishes root to tip without leaving excessive residue
  • $5.99, Dove.com
