Did you catch the MTV movie awards the other night? Elizabeth Banks nabbed the award for Best On-Screen Transformation for her role as Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games…& long gone were her character’s crazy-cool colorful wigs! Instead, she sported THE look of the season, created by Jenny Cho, Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist, and inspired by her sexy jumpsuit.
“I wanted to give her a young and cool hairstyle while keeping it pulled together. I created this chic high knot in order to show off her fierce jumpsuit,” says Cho. Here, her tips on how to recreate the look:
1. Apply Suave Professionals Keratin infusion Leave-In Conditioner to towel-dried hair and layer on Suave Professionals Keratin infusion Smooth & Shine Serum. Blow dry using fingers, creating a little bit of tension to smooth, add shine and protect hair from the heat.
2. Pull back hair to the crown area, using a mix bristle brush to smooth as you go, and create a high ponytail. Secure with an elastic.
3. Split hair into two sections and tie a knot. Be sure to leave the ends free but tuck some under the knot; securing with U-shaped pins and bobby pins so it doesn’t look too perfect.
4. Tame down any flyaways with Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Lightweight Hold Hairspray and you’re good to go!
Or, opt for the super-easy route & use Suave Professionals’ celeb stylist Theodore Leaf’s Top Knot Kit ($19.99, www.boredwithyourhair.com)!
