Get the Look: Michelle Dockery’s Modern French Bun at the Emmy Awards

September 24, 2012


Celebrity hair stylist Jonathan Hanousek worked with Michelle Dockery, prepping her for The Emmy’s red carpet today in Hollywood. The Emmy Nominated actress is known to American viewers as Lady Mary Crawley in the hit series Downton Abbey.

“The Inspiration for Michelle’s look today was French Modern and Romantic. We wanted easy elegance. Texture was key for this softer top knot, we didn’t want it to feel stiff or fussy,” said Jonathan.

To create the look Jonathan prepped the hair with Avon’s Advance Techniques 360 Nourishment Moroccan Argan Oil Leave In Treatment, concentrating on the ends.

Then, he rough dried the hair to create lift. Next, Jonathan misted 1″ sections with Avon’s Advance Techniques Medium Hold Hair Spray and curled the hair using a 3/4″ curling iron on high heat, alternating the direction forward and back. Then, he broke up the hair with a wide-toothed comb.

Then he took a couple pumps of The Advance Techniques 360 Nourishment Moroccan Argan Oil and pulled it through the hair to smooth and create separation. Next, he drew the hair up into a pony tail and fastened with an elastic band.

He then shaped the hairline by gently pulling pieces of hair from the ponytail. Misting the hair with Advance Techniques Medium Hold Hair Spray, he raked the fingers up towards the pony to add texture and smooth excessive fly aways. He backcombed the pony, and twisted and wrapped into a bun. The bun was fuzzy and a little undone. Finally, he fastened with pins and locked the style into place with a few more shots of Advance Techniques Medium Hold Hair Spray.
