Textured updos were on Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend’s mind during the Toronto International Film Festival, where Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Johnson premiered their latest blockbusters for fall – “I Saw The Light” and “Black Mass”.
“For the ‘I Saw The Light’ premiere, Elizabeth and I talked about doing an up-do and we wanted to keep it chic and not too overdone. Textured up styles are such a huge trend because the hair is away from the face but still has a style to it.” – Mark

Start by placing a few drops of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil on damp hair and comb it through. I’m obsessed with this oil because it nourishes the hair from the inside and then seals the cuticle for smooth, silky hair. It never weighs the hair down!
Add a dollop of Dove Style + Care Nourishing Curls Mousse to hair and scrunch while blow-drying for texture.
When the hair is dry, take a small amount of Sally Hershberger 24K Texturizing Paste in hands and rake it through the hair for cool texture, hold, and to tame the flyaway hairs.
Then pull the hair back and twist it into a bun (you could easily pull hair into a ponytail and then wrap the ponytail around the base) and secure with bobby pins. When putting in bobby pins, always use an even number and apply them in “X” formation for added security.
To keep the hair in place (throughout the premiere and after party), finish by liberally spraying Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray all over.
Dakota Johnson Premiere Look & Detail
“For the premiere of ‘Black Mass’, Dakota Johnson inspired and encouraged me to do my favorite thing a textured up do! When I first saw the stunning Alexander McQueen dress she chose for the premiere my mind was overloaded with inspiration. We made the decision to do messy knots in the back and a side part with her fringe. I loved the finished look and so did she!” – Mark

Start by applying a few drops of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil to damp hair from mid lengths to ends to seal the cuticle.
Spray Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray on roots and blow-dry with a round brush. When the hair is dry, take random sections of hair varying from 1 inch to 4 inches and wrap the hair in a figure 8 using the R Session Pro Tools Tidal Waver to create bends throughout the Hair.
Take Sally Hershberger 24K Texturizing Paste in hands and rake through hair to make it piecey and to give some hold to the hair.
With shoulder length hair like Dakota¹s I knew it would be difficult to pull it all back and up in one action — take 2 to 4 inch sections of hair and twist back to create little knots at the nape of the neck, securing each one with 2 bobby pins in an “X” formation. I left the back quite messy because we liked the juxtaposition with the smooth front. Leave some whispy pieces around the face if you wish and blow-dry the fringe to the side with a flat brush.
Finish by very liberally spraying Dove Style + Care Extra Hold Hairspray all over hair (to last all night!)
