Long time readers know that Connie Britton of Friday Night Lights and Nashville fame, has been one of my hair inspirations for the last four years. Back when I had a pixie, I would dream of having Connie's hair. Who wouldn't? I wonder if she's insured it? She should! Her hair so much hotter than Madonna's breasts, which, if you were wondering, are insured for $2 million. (Also, Kylie Minogue's tush is allegedly insured for a cool $5 million and JLo reportedly insures hers for $300 million.)
Want Connie's drool worthy hair?
Celebrity hairstylist Creighton Bowman created Connie Britton's Emmy look using Leonor Greyl products. Get the details below!
“Connie is wearing this gorgeous blue/green velvet gown by Naeem Khan that has gold and bronze embellishments on it. So we went with a very editorial Veronica Lake look, we wanted the Hollywood waves but with a little “disheveled elegance”.
I started by shampooing her hair with Leonor Greyl Shampooing Reviviscence but decided to leave out conditioner because of the longevity of the hairstyle for the night.
Then, I prepped her wet hair with Leonor Greyl Lait Luminescence and towel-dried her hair after. To start to create the volume we wanted for her waves, I lightly applied Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice all over her hair from root to tip. Then I blew it out with a paddle brush for a lot of volume and used Serum de Soie to give her hair a bit of shine. Wanting more control in the front of the hair, I applied the Gel a l’Hibiscus along her hairline.
Then we got started on the waves. I began by spraying Leonor Greyl Condition Naturelle on each section of her hair, then curling each section with a half-inch curling iron and set everything with pin curls. Afterwards, I went through and took out the pin curls and created a deep side part. To give her hair more texture before moving on, I misted Voluforme all over.
Next, I brushed out her curls with a large paddle brush and then backcombed parts of her hair with a really wide toothed comb. This gave it the “disheveled elegance” aspect that we were going for.
Lastly, I used Spray Structure Naturelle which is an amazing styling spray that gives strong hold to have her hairstyle last all night!”
Pick up Leonor Greyl, it's a treat! And if you haven't tried their Huile for hair, do it now! I let my hair marinate in some Magnolia Huile while watching the Red Carpet arrivals last night and it looks like shiny, healthy and like I haven't been using a curling iron every other day!
