Hair Care

By Candice Sabatini

Stunningly gorgeous Michelle Dockery, who plays Lady Mary in Downton Abbey has always had the kind of looks I’d kill for: classic, flawless and what my mother describes as “timeless elegance.” Whether her character is from 1920 or today, Michelle carries off the look with panache.

For the Golden Globes, hair stylist Sascha Breuer, gave Michelle a slightly disheveled and loose look that worked really well with her magnificent cream-colored embroidered Oscar de la Renta gown. What I love about this hair is that it’s a look that you can easily create yourself, and works well for both daytime and for evening.

Want this look for yourself? It’s easy peasy with the right styling products. Here’s how Sascha created it:

1. He applied Davines More Inside This is a Sea Salt Spray to the root area of her towel-dried hair, and blow-dried it using a round brush to create the perfect foundation and loose volume that this style needs.

2. Once Michelle’s hair was completely dry, Sascha divided it into smaller sub sections (roughly 1 inch) and curled each section individually, starting from the back. “For those recreating the look, I recommend using a 1 or 1 1/2-inch curling iron that lets you adjust the temperature to the needs of your hair and works on a low / medium heat setting.”

3. He then worked his way through the hair, curling in horizontal sections.

4. Applying a small drop of Davines More Inside This is An Invisible Serum, Sascha broke up the curls and left a few loose strands around the face to create a slightly messy texture and “lived in,” unforced feeling.

5. Once the hair had the right shape and texture, he misted the look with Davines More Inside This is a Medium Hairspray to keep the style flexible. “This hairspray is great,” he explained, “because it also adds lots of shine and extreme bounce.”
