It’s not exactly a secret… but now it’s official: I’m a low maintenance girl! Taking more than fifteen minutes getting ready in the morning makes me uneasy. Seriously, I can think of a million things I’d rather be doing than fussing with my hair or any other time-consuming body-aware ritual. Even though I enjoy going to town and logging in the hours necessary to achieve an elaborate look on special occasions, when I’m fortunate enough to call the shots on a shoot (meaning when I’m the producer) I like to go for extra glammed yet effortless hairstyles (can’t always sport my “just got out of bed and shook up my mane” trademark look ;).
For Second Chance, I had total carte blanche. My challenge was to come up with three distinctive looks that underscore key scenes in the film yet remain consistently effortless and uncontrived.
I knew I’d start with my fave “second-day hair” look, which can pretty be summed up as freshen up the curls, build a little volume and bring on the shine. Simple and gets me camera-ready in record time. My second fave hairdo to amp up the glamour is the classic side-swept look. Always works. It’s elegant and all it requires is a few hair pins and a little pomade to smooth the side and add some shine. Finally, for the “Happily Ever After” look (hint! hint!) we went for something a little more elaborate. After all it’s a very special day! This half-up hairdo with fresh orchids takes a little more doing but it’s definitely a standout.
In this video tutorial, Tyler, Lauren and Adriana of the Aveda Institute Los Angeles give us step by step instructions and cool tips & tricks on how to pull off these three glamorous and easier-than-they-appear looks from the film.
