If you’ve ever thought about going short, this photo of Evan Rachel Wood’s hair at Vanity Fair’s Tribeca Film Festival Kick-off Party may just seal the deal. Her hairstylist Christopher Nasellli created a sleek pulled back style made softer by the romantic waves tucked behind the ears. “For this event, we wanted a glamorous, fun look that was youthful with the right amount of elegance,” Naselli said. Here’s how he created the style:
Step 2: After creating a side part, he used Gel Sérum ($58) to slick the top and side sections away from Wood’s face, and tucked them neatly behind her ears. He then secured with a few clips.
Step 3: He took sections from behind the ears and at the back of the head, spraying them with Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray ($33). Then he wrapped them around 3/4 –inch curling iron, set them and let them cool.
Step 4: Once the hair cooled, Naselli undid the set and brushed out each curl, using his hands to form curls into the desired shape.
