Michelle Williams has always been consistently stylish on the red carpet—who can forget her at the Oscars a couple years ago in that gorgeous chartreuse gown—and her appearance at the New York premiere of her new Martin Scorsese flick, Shutter Island, was no exception. With the help of hair stylist Laini Reeves, Williams was the definition of understated glamour. Reeves, owner and Creative Director of Essensuals London, took inspiration from William’s sophisticated Lanvin dress when creating her simple, chic updo.
Here's how she did it:
1. Start with hair that is smooth and glossy. Reeves used Shu Uemura Art of Hair Essence Absolue before blow drying to give Williams' hair a silky sheen.
2. Take the hair in one piece at the nape of the neck, then twirl into a bun and secure.
3. Use a sculpting putty to help control any unruly ends.
4. Finally, loosen a few strands around the face to create a more modern, soft, tousled look
