Michelle Dockery, the Downton Abbey star nominated for the 19th Annual Screen Actor’s Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, looked dazzling on the red carpet last night. Wearing a vintage Chado Ralph Rucci gown that got lots of attention for it’s revealing “side boob”, Michelle complimented her much-buzzed about gown with Bulgari jewelry, and an elegant hair look created by celebrity stylist Mara Roszak for Moroccanoil.
We got Mara’s inside scoop on the Downton Abbey star’s chic hair-do and how you can get it at home.
“Michelle’s stunning black gown had a striking, modern elegance with a bit of edge,” explained Roszak. “As a result, we went for a stronger and more structured look, keeping it feminine and flowing.
How the look was created:
“Michelle’s hair is actually perfect. Thick, gorgeous and with a slight wave that you can enhance or smooth out. This time, I wanted to keep the wave loose and subtle, with extra shine and polish.
“I parted her wet hair to the side then applied Moroccanoil Curl Control Mousse. It’s lightweight, holds nicely, and helps seal in moisture and prevent frizz. I didn’t want to take away Michelle’s natural wave completely, only to smooth out her texture while keeping its natural body and movement.
“I used a 1 1/4” marcel curling iron and loosely wrapped random vertical sections throughout the hair, starting mid-length to ends.
“After letting them sit for a few seconds, I brushed the hair lightly, then shaped the waves on one side, creating a soft bend at the ends of the hair. I sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray on my fingers and scrunched the ends a bit so they had a slightly more lived in texture.
“I smoothed the other side back for a sleek, tucked under look, and sprayed the entire style with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium.
To finish, I lightly misted hair with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray to add extra shine.
