Get The Look: Saoirse Ronan’s Romantic Updo at the SAG Awards

Love her and if you haven’t seen Brooklyn yet, GO SEE IT. Such a beautiful, romantic story with amazing acting. I can’t wait to see it again.

Get The Look: Saoirse Ronan at the SAG Awards

THE LOOK: A voluminous textured top knot that was romantic and whimsical.

Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel gave Saoirse a beautiful top knot for tonight’s SAG Awards. “I was inspired by the sleek and modern dress and I wanted a statuesque yet carefree undone updo that sat at the crown,” he says.

How To Get The Look:

I applied NEW John Frieda Luxurious Volume® Perfectly Full™ Mousse all over the roots through mid-shaft on towel dried hair. I then hand dried the hair and took a large round brush to create a soft voluminous blowout.
Then I used a 1 1/4″ curling on large sections of hair to create random waves and texture.
Next, I took a comb and teased the roots of her hair and pulled it loosely into a top ponytail leaving some height around the front.
Then I took the ponytail and back combed it prior to wrapping it around in a big deconstructed bun and pinning it in place.
I locked the look down with NEW John Frieda Luxurious Volume® Forever Full® Hairspray.
I made sure some pieces fell around the hairline for a more whimsical and romantic effect.

Hydrate, Protect and Revive with Hair La Vie “Revive” Deep Hydration Masque


Winter wind and cold can be havoc on hair. My natural curls, and thin hair can get so dry and lackluster this time of year it was time to do a little deep treatment. Safe for my color treated hair the Hair La Vie Revive mask moisturizes my scalp and hair! Love any product that multitasks.

A base of keratin and bamboo extra not only moisturize but strengthen each strand of hair. The mask itself is rich and whipped looks a bit like whipped butter or frosting.  The mixture of coconut and argan oil make this masque smell amazingly decadent. I apply a dollop and work through my hair and leave on for 5 minutes in shower before rinsing. And once a month I like to do a deep treatment and apply the masque and then cover it with plastic and leave it for 30-40 minutes and let the heat help it penetrate deep into my strands.

This mask has not only repaired some dry ugly ends but also left my hair vibrant, shiny and feeling as bouncy as a vidal sasson commercial circa the 90’s. So take a little time for yourself and take some at home spa time a face mask, and the amazing Revive masque maybe a glass of wine and the Bachelor..what more can a girl need?
