5 Steps To Hailee’s Waves

Hailee Steinfeld nailed the magenta carpet in a bold & edgy look at the Billboard Music Awards. Beyond the metallic and black gown, her longer-than-long hair looked amazing, thanks to hairstylist Gregory Russell. “Hailee’s style was inspired by her sequined David Koma gown,” shares Russell. “I wanted to be sure to give her a modern look with varying textures that would pair perfectly.” Here’s how you can steal the Pitch Perfect star’s style…

  1. Apply a volumizing mousse to damp hair, then apply a heat-protectant.
  2. Blow-dry away from the face and through the ends using a large round brush.
  3. Create a deep side part. Taking 1 inch sections at a time, curl hair (all in the same direction) with a 1.5″ iron, pinning each curl until cool.
  4. Once cooled, brush out curls into waves and apply Matrix Style Link Over Achiever through the ends to add structure and shine.
  5. Apply styling gel through the roots to hold the hair away from the face; use flat hair pins to set. Diffuse-dry the gelled areas for 10 minutes, then remove pins. Spray with hairspray Matrix Style Link Style Fixer for hold.

Chloe’s Sleek Style


87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Smooth and shiny was the name of the mane style game for Chloe Grace Moretz at the Oscars on Sunday. The look was created by style pro Gregory Russell, who shares the step-by-step…

  • Chloe first prepped her hair by cleansing with Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner for Medium hair.
  • On her damp hair I applied Style Link Volume Builder Mousse to the crown area, and Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner Leave-In Treatment Anti Frizz Lotion for Medium Hair to mid-strand through the ends.
  • I blow-dried her hair with a medium  ceramic brush for body and smoothness.
  • Next, I tucked her hair behind her ears for face framing shape and used a 1.25″ iron to add subtle movement to the ends. I sprayed the ends with Matrix Style Link Texture Builder  for a romantic undone texture.
  • For definition, I used Biolage Agave Nectar Control Gel through the ends and around the face. I then applied Style Link Height Riser powder to the crown for more volume and texture.
  • I finished by untucking the hair from behind her right ear, leaving the left tucked to show off her insane earcuff. I set the finished style with Matrix Style Link Volume Builder Hairspray for hold!
