January Jones looked amazing at the Met Ball last night!
Her hairstylist Mark Townshead, was awesome enough to explain how they achieved her gorgeous hair look – using Dove hair care~
"This year I worked with the incredible January Jones for the Met Costume Institute Gala. I was so inspired by her Yves Saint Laurent dress and by the incredible detail; the dress was truly a work of art. It was very classic but completely modern, so I wanted January's hair to feel the same.
“I started by spraying January's hair with Dove Heat Defense Therapy Heat Activated Protect & Shine Mist to protect her hair and help repair some of the damage from all the heat styling tools that are used on her hair. Next I applied Dove Body & Lift Volumizing Mousse to give hold without becoming too stiff, and I blow-dried with a round brush. I backcombed the roots on the top section of her hair for volume.
“To achieve the oversized french twist, I backcombed all the hair in the back before securing the twist. Then I took the top section of hair and ran a small amount of Dove Frizz Control Taming Cream through her hair to tame flyaways and create texture at the same time. I ran the length of the hair from the section to the right of the french twist to give the whole look a little bit of a rock and roll edge and secured with a few bobby pins.
“I think the whole look was really inspired by this year’s Met Ball theme of the American Woman. This was a very modern and almost futuristic take on a very classic American silhouette."
