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 Fekkai.com and Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.

Elizabeth Banks reveals the secrets to her amazing body in the new ‘Women’s Health’ magazine!

Elizabeth Banks always looks amazingly beautiful, and the actress says she works hard to keep it that way. The 37-year-old actress reveals her grueling fitness regime in the March issue of Women’s Health Magazine.

In the interview, Elizabeth reveals the secret to her figure, explaining the great lengths she goes to to stay in shape.

“I do this system called TRX. It was developed by a Navy SEAL and is basically a simple cord that you can wrap around something anywhere, anytime, and you use your body weight as resistance,” she explains.

“We installed one in our home gym, but you can also attach it to a tree. It’s very easy to travel with.”

She does, however, let herself indulge in her favorites from time to time. “Pimm’s and ginger ale. Makes me very happy,” she says.

She also reveals her food vices, which include cupcakes, cheese, pesto, bread and cookie dough.

The actress admits that her looks often used to get in the way of getting certain roles.

‘I’m grateful for my career, but there’s a level of dissatisfaction that keeps me going,’ she says. ‘I’m always looking for challenges. I’m open to anything. I get out of the way of all plans.’

Before she became famous, Banks said that she used to do a little bit of modelling, but hardly enjoyed the job.

‘I did a little modeling, almost exclusively for the Petite Sophisticate catalog – not very glamorous. But it paid a lot of bills, and we got go to Miami in the winter,’ she explains.

Banks is about to star in the upcoming surefire hit The Hunger Games as escort tribute Effie Trinket.

She can currently be seen in the thriller Man On A Ledge and is part of the star studded cast of What To Expect When You’re Expecting, which will be released later this year in May.

I love Elizabeth. She is hilarious, and I can’t wait to see her in ‘Hunger Games’.
