Maggie Gyllenhaal's Sexy, Tousled Pixie by Matthew Monzon

Maggie Gyllenhaal's Sexy, Tousled Pixie by Matthew Monzon "White House Down" star Maggie Gyllenhaal, also co-staring alongside Michael Fassbender in "Frank" due out later this year, graces the cover of the current Summer issue of Gotham Magazine. She attended the mag's cover star celebration in late June and celebrity stylist Matthew Monzon was on hand to give Gyllenhaal a tousled and textured look that worked perfectly with her pixy cut for this summer celebration.

HOW TO:

1. Starting with damp hair, Monzon used about a lemon size amount of Joico Power Whip Whipped Foam. "We wanted to bring out some of the natural wave and bend in Maggie's natural texture so I combed through the hair into her own wave pattern," he explains. 

2. Next, he took a diffuser attachment to the hair dryer and started applying heat to dry the hair.  At about 80% dry he then started taking random sections of hair and twisted it with his fingers while keeping the diffuser on the hair to get it completely dry.  The trick, says Monzon, "is to keep the twisting inconsistent to make it feel more random and not too perfect." 

3. Once the hair was dry he let it cool for about 10 minutes. To finish, he used Joico Texture Boost Dry Spray Wax to add some additional texture and separation, leaving a soft touchable style to add to the ease of the entire look.
