Met Costume Institute Gala Hair: Evan Rachel Wood
Published May 3, 2011
Evan Rachel Wood sizzled with vintage beauty as she strolled down the red carpet at this year's Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. Get the scoop on how master stylist Marcus Francis created her retro-futuristic Hollywood updo.
"Evan has an old Hollywood style, but she has the versaility to pull off something bold with a modern twist. To show off the fabulous diamond cut out on her plum colored Gucci gown, we decided to modernize a side twisted roll with a futuristic edge.
I prepped her hair with Phyto Volume actif on the roots on damp hair for flexibility and lift. I blew dry the roots up with a flat Mason pearson brush, working in texture at the root. I applied Phyto Pro Intense Volume Mousse to the mid shaft and ends and blew dry with the Mason brush leaving in some of the hair's natural texture.
I brushed all three sides to meet at the top, slightly to the right side of the head. Molding the ends over and under creating a french twist like roll from the hairline to the crown. Use hair pins to secure the roll to the base of the head. To mold the hair into a tube like shape I used the end of a toothbrush and blowdryer as I sprayed Elnett for hold."
