If you thought bangs already had their moment, you may want to reconsider. Not only have cool girls like Joan Smalls and Karen Elson recently sported fresh sets of fringe, but Emma Stone’s long, eye-grazing bangs spotted at last night’s New York premiere of Magic in the Moonlight have us tempted to break out the scissors—stat. In a floral Dolce & Gabbana gown, she epitomized seventies bohemian glamour. But even if you’re not ready to opt for a chop, you can re-create Stone’s polished, bouncy waves at home. Hair pro Mara Roszak began by applying L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High Lift Creation Spray to the roots for volume, then blow-dried strands with a round brush. While Stone’s hair was still hot, Roszak wrapped sections in velcro rollers for ten minutes to set the curl. Then she sprayed a veil of L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold before removing the rollers and touching up the ends with a 1 1/2″ curling iron. Finally, a spritz of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and a good scrunch gave Stone’s look an effortless finish.
While the tight crops of the Jazz Age are blowing up the beauty blogosphere as Gatsby continues its red-carpet domination, we’d like to remind everyone that it was the pin curls and marcel waves of the thirties and forties that made the rounds on the Fall runways. Zoe Saldana certainly hasn’t forgotten. For the U.K. premiere of Star Trek: Into Darkness, the Vionnet-clad starlet, who wore a striking slick of Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Portofino Red courtesy of makeup artist Vera Steimberg, had her hairstylist, Mara Roszak, create a glossy, side-parted faux bob with a few soft ridges for added texture. Here, Roszak shares some exclusive pregame pictures with us and breaks down the look in six easy steps:
1. Prep your hair with Moroccanoil Heat Styling Spray and rough dry.
2. Use a 1-inch-barrel curling iron, creating pin curls all over your head as you go.
3. Set the coils with Frédéric Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray and let sit for ten minutes.
4. Brush out the waves and then tease the ends to helpcreate thickness.
5. Tuck ends underneath themselves and pin at the nape of the neck.
6. Spray a halo of Frédéric Fekkai Glossing Mist all over the head to add extra shine.
As previously noted, ponytails are big for fall—and are considered more than acceptable red-carpet fare because of it. Emma Stone put her own spin on the style last night at the Friends With Benefits premiere in New York, adding a little retro height at the crown to complement a heavy, red-again fringe and a perfectly placed black cat-eye. “I decided on a pony with a seventies Bardot feel,” Stone’s stylist, Mara Roszak, said, taking her cues from the Easy A star’s “youthful, upbeat” Giambattista Valli ensemble. Prepping damp hair with Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray, Roszak rough-dried Stone’s strands for a bit of haphazard texture. Then, back-combing to add volume, she pulled the lengths into a pony, wrapping a piece of hair around the elastic and allowing a few pieces to fall out around Stone’s face for some casual framing. A halo of Rene Furterer Hair Spray kept everything in place. Thoughts on the fun-meets-formal look?
