HOW TO: Sexy, Shiny Chignon on Allison Williams at Vanity Fair

At the Vanity Fair Oscar party, Allison William’s stunning Emilia Wickstead dress shaped the inspiration for her hairstyle, created by celebrity stylist Renato Campora using Wella Professionals. Campora kept the the hair streamlined and elegant for Williams, best known for her work on the HBO series "Girls," to showcase the beauty of the gown.


STEP ONE:  Apply a generous amount of Wella Professionals Natural Volume Mousse to towel-dried hair from roots to tips to prep hair and build a strong foundation for the look.

STEP TWO: Blow-dry hair using a round brush to create volume and bounce.

STEP THREE:  Create a deep side part, pulling hair on both sides very night against the head, and secure with bobby pins.

STEP FOUR: Mist remaining hair with Wella Professionals Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray, and using a 1-inch barrel iron, curl hair to give the hair shape and volume. Let cool and brush curls through.

STEP FIVE: Roll remanding hair under, tucking it at the nape of the neck to create almost a faux bob. Secure with bobby pins to keep the look in place.

STEP SIX: To finish, set the style with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray.
