Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Look For the NYC Premiere Of ‘Beyond The Lights’

Gugu wore an amazing Lanvin emerald green dress with one shoulder. It reminded me of a classic Hollywood actress. I wanted to take it a step further by giving her classic #gibsongirl  hair! I only had about 45 minutes to take her from curly girl next door to red carpet goddess and I did just that. Here’s how to get her classic Hollywood chignon.

1)      I started by applying Kerastase’s Volumifique mousse to her hair for volume. I then blow dried her hair with a small round brush to smoothen her curls.

2)       After straightening her hair I parted it on the side and taking a 1 inch curling iron I curled her entire head. I then brushed it out with my Mason Pearson brush.

3)      Next, I used my marcel iron to create a marcel curl effect with the hair at her front part. I love this look because its very regal and has a 1920s feel.

4)       I pulled everything back into a low ponytail, securing it with an elastic at the nape of her neck. I then twisted her pony and rolled the twist around the elastic to form a bun.  I pinned it with bobby bins to hold everything in place.

5)      A hairdresser’s nightmare is the rain and naturally, it started to do just that so I sprayed Gugu’s hair with tons of L’Oreal Professionnel’s Infinium 3 Strong Hold Working Spray to hold her look in place.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s ‘Do For The LA Premiere Of ‘Beyond The Lights’

It’s all about the sexy French twist! All of my years doing fashions shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris taught me to be able to change hair in an instant. I definitely needed those skills working with Gugu yesterday! I felt like I was backstage at Chanel, Naomi just came from another show and I had less than 15 minutes to go from girl next door to hot sexy movie star! I was up for the challenge. Here’s how to recreate Gugu’s French twist.

1)      I first used Kerastase’s Elixir Ultime throughout her hair as a blow drying agent to add moisture, protect her hair from heat and add a sleek and smooth shine. I also appliedKerastase’s Mousse Bouffant for more volume.

2)      I then sectioned her hair taking 1 inch sections and smoothed out her hair with a flat iron.

3)      I wanted some drama in the front, so I left a small section of hair out around the perimeter of her hairline and backcombed the front of her hair for some height. I also backcombed the middle to have enough lift to form my French twist.

4)      Next, I brushed the left out hair in the front over the backcombed hair and pinned it to hold it in place.

5)      Covering the section I backcombed at the nape of her neck, I pulled all of her hair back with my fingers and rolled the hair onto itself vertically to form a French twist, securing with bobby pins.

6)      I finished with and L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to hold the look in place.

Beauty Is Individual.

Gugu Mbatha Raw’s Hairstyle For The Jimmy Kimmel Show

I styled Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s hair for yesterday’s epidsode of the Jimmy Kimmel Show. The look? Girl next door curly pompadour. As a beauty expert I know that shape in curling hair is very important. I often cut curly hair dry because I like instant gratification and I want to see the shape immediately. Trimming Gugu’s hair is so fun because it takes shape instantly. Gugu loves the girl next door look and her hair has a gorgeous texture. We wanted to showcase that with this look. Here’s how to get it.

1)      Curly haired girls are concerned with controlling frizz and adding shine, so I made sure to use styling products that would do just that. I applied a mixture of Kerastase’s Elixir Ultime,Kerastase Volumifique mousse for volume, L’Oreal Professionnel’s Gelee Cashmere andKerastase’s Elixir Ultime Solid serum throughout her hair for control, shine and to define her curl.

2)      I then pulled all of her hair to the top of her head and brushed it up starting from the nape of her neck to the crown and pinned.

3)      With all her hair on top of her head, I pulled it to the front, allowing her curls to cascade toward her face.

4)      I finished with and L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to hold the look in place.

Remember, Beauty Is Individual.
