Celebrity Style: Helena Bonham Carter

July 11, 2011 | 12:00 AM

Helena Bonham Carter’s hair is styled for display with a silhouette that enhances her high cheek bones and strong jaw line. Her extreme sexy-messy style—a kind of controlled chaos— is accessorized with extensions.

“This is a fabulous look exaggerating her exotic image,” says Jonathan Torch, owner and founder of Curly Hair Solutions and The Curly Hair Institute. “It creates an illusion of thick hair, as her natural hair is quite fine in texture.”

Try it: “After hair has been dried as curly as possible, slowly back brush with fingers, being careful not to break up the curl formation,” says Torch. “Such styling is perfect for Tweek, a hair spray in a cream form aiding style support at the root area while movement creates volume.

“Blending natural hair with extensions needs a styling product that is flexible,” says Torch. “Hair needs to be touchable, but the style must last all day and night and Tweek is perfect for this.”
