To compliment Claire’s one-shoulder Givenchy dress and allow her neckline to show, stylist Peter Butler pulled her hair back into a chic, low ponytail with a soft side part. He said to her, “If we try and make this Hollywood, it just won’t work,” so he kept the look fresh and cool but still elegant with soft pieces falling around the face. “The dress is very sharp looking and I wanted to soften it by giving her a cool ‘New York girl’ style,” he said.


STEP 1: Starting with wet hair, applied MATRIX Amplify Foam Volumizer evenly throughout hair to provide hold, texture and volume and Total Results Blonde Care Flash Filler Sheer Mist to ends so that they would smooth out nicely and look finished and polished

STEP 2: Blew hair out with a medium round brush

STEP 3: Brushed hair into a side part and lightly ran BIOLAGE Exquisite Oil Replenishment Treatment over hair to smooth flyaways

STEP 4: Applied Design Pulse Mega Dust to roots at the crown of her head and lightly teased to provide height to the pony

STEP 5: Gathered hair at the nape of the neck, leaving out some angles in the front, and secured with a bungee elastic, joining the two hooks underneath the pony

STEP 6: Pulled out small pieces around her ears to keep the look ethereal and not too done

STEP 7: Lightly sprayed Total Results Amplify Hairspray to keep it all together, while not looking too stiff or finished

STEP 8: Finished off the look with a few sprays of Total Results Blonde Care Flash Filler Sheer Mist as a shine spray to bring out and enhance her blonde hue
