Hair stylist Marcus Francis worked with Bryce Dallas Howard at the 2011 Cannes International Film Festival.
Bryce Dallas Howard’s Hairstyle at the Restless Photo Call, May 13, 2011.
Inspiration:“Bryce can look very youthful and yet classic at different times. Because her blouse had such pretty lace detail, we opted for a modern and flirty twist to her look.”
How To Get the Look: “I always prefer the hair to be one day unwashed when putting the hair up; there’s more texture and the hair stays secure longer. First I sprayed Phyto Volume Actif Spray throughout her dry hair, scrunching it in with my hands as I used the blow dryer. To give a little height to the crown, I teased four 1/2″ sections and lightly smoothed out with Mason Pearson brush. Starting at the temple area on each side of her head, I did a loose French braid. Keeping the braid taut around the nape of the neck, I finished the braids in pigtails, tying an elastic on the end. I took the right braid and wrapped it left to right back and forth, and the same with the left braid securing to the head with large hair pins. To soften Bryce’s braided chignon, I pulled out a few face framing strands and curled with a 1/2″ curling iron. Perfect for that do-it-yourself look!”

Inspiration: “With the intricate detail of Bryce’s dress, and how she still wanted a youthful feel to the hair, I took an organic approach to the style.”
How To Get the Look: “I wanted to really show off Bryce’s thick and gorgeous red hair by her wearing it down, like she was right out of Shakespeare story! I started off by spraying Phyto Volume Actif Spray at the roots on wet hair, rough drying with my hands. I then applied Phyto Pro Intense Volume Mousse to the entire strand of each section, and blew it dry with a round brush. Then lightly spray half a dozen mists of Fekkai Tousled Wave Spray throughout the hair for added texture to last. With a 1″ curling iron I wrapped from roots to ends in a figure 8, using the rod AND the clamp. This creates irregular ‘S waves’ instead of curls. To finish I sprayed lightly with L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray, and gently shook out large sections of hair.”
