Using uber chic Leonor Greyl hair products, hairstylist Ryan Trygstad took the best of 70’s and 80’s hair and created this easy to recreate look on Taylor Schilling. Here’s the scoop on how to do this.
“We wanted to go with a look that was a bit 80s, late 70s. Hair that was bigger on the bottom, but nothing too stylized. Taylor is wearing this gorgeous emerald silk dress with gold heels and reminds me of Sharon Stone in Scarface, it has that sexy 70s vibe.
I began by prepping her hair with Leonor Greyl’s Lait Luminescence on the ends to keep them soft. Since her hair is on the finer side, I wanted to give her more volume all around. I used the Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice, put some in my hand and worked it section by section into the roots. The Mousse is so easy to work with, wasn’t sticky at all, gave really nice body and shine, and smelled amazing. I didn’t apply mousse to the ends since we wanted to keep them really soft. Then I blew out her hair with a small round brush to give a lot of body.
To create the shape to her hair, I prepped it with the Leonor Greyl Laque Souple and then used a 1” curling iron to create a loose wave all around. I kept the ends kind of pointy for a more fluffy feeling. After, I used the Lacque Souple again to set the entire look. The hairspray is really light which we liked because we wanted to keep her hair touchable.
Next, I added in extensions that I put together myself and curled them. I focused the curls more towards the bottom of the head to bring it up and create a triangle shape. Then, I used the Leonor Greyl Natural Boar Bristle Brush and loosely brushed out the curls and backed combed a bit. Keeping the top of the hair flat really finished out the shape I wanted to create. Lastly, we used the Huile Secret de Beaute over her entire body for a bit of sheen.”
