Cool-Girl Hair


 

Emily Blunt, winner of the Critic’s Choice Award for Best Actress in an Action Film (“Edge of Tomorrow”), dazzled in gorgeous hair created by celebrity stylist Ashley Streicher for Rich Hair Care. “It’s sexy, ‘cool girl’ hair,” shares Streicher. “Tousled, textured, waved and volumized.”

Since Emily’s gown was on the formal side, “we wanted to ‘cool’ up the hair a bit and do a bronzed smokey eye and nude lip. Emily loved the idea,” explains Streicher. “Emily had just come home after getting fresh blonde balayaged highlights with Tracey Cunningham, arriving with wet, freshly washed hair.  It was actually great for the texture that I wanted to create for her.”

Here, Streicher shares the step-by-step…

  • I combed Rich Pure Luxury Argan Volumising Mousse through Emily’s wet hair from roots to ends, then blow-dried with a round brush for natural volume. Then I center-parted her hair and added volume at the crown.
  • Next, I took about 1 1/2 square inch sections (starting at the nape of the neck) and sprayed each with Rich Pure Luxury Sure Hold Hairspray before wrapping  around a 1 inch hot rod, leaving just the very ends out.
  • When releasing the hair from the barrel, I pulled it straight down to cool while slightly roughing it up with my fingers. I did this all the way up the head until the very top front, where I made an “S” wave with my flat iron.
  • I then warmed a small amount of Rich Pure Luxury Rejuvenating Argan Oil Elixir in my palms and pulled  it through all of the ends while shaking some of her wave out.  This separated the texture while keeping the ends healthy-looking and shiny.
  • I then gently back combed the crown and gave Emily a nice little head rub to create some texture and break up the curl.
  • To complete, I quickly ran a flat iron over random curls, to make it a little less perfect, while keeping the volume.
