“In country music, big hair is a long-standing tradition, and I like to put a funky twist on it.”

“I always say, ‘If my hair is flat, then my performance will be, too.’”

“I have two different sized curling irons—a one-inch and one that graduates down from one-and-a-half inches to a half-inch.”

“I run both curling irons through my hair to get some spirals with various shapes and sizes.”

London Fog’s Marketing Campaign Featuring A Bombshell Beauty

Christina Hendricks is the famous face of London Fog’s latest marketing campaign, and who can blame the famous clothier for picking the Mad Men beauty? “Christina has a modern appeal but also harks back to a bygone era. She is sexy and gorgeous,” explains Chief Marketing Officer for London Fog, Dari Marder. Here, Christina’s hairstylist for the shoot, Philip Carreon, dishes on the actress’ ravishing look.

Christina Hendricks Christina Hendricks

  • Christina’s London Fog look had to be recognizable from Mad Men. We needed to create a look that resembled her character Joan, but with a modern and sensual twist. I wanted Christina’s hair to look a little done in the front and have a slightly undone texture in the back.
  • The secret to creating Christina’s tousled upsweep is not to be too neat. You want to achieve a roughed-up look.
  • I applied texture to the free ends of Christina’s hair and ruffled them with my fingers to create a playfully messy texture.
  • Remember to modernize [the updo], the hair should wrap slightly over the top of the ears, not around the ear.
