A-List Beauty: How to Recreate Zooey Deschanel’s Glamour Cover Hairstyle Friday 25 January, 2013
Learn how to re-create Zooey Deschanel’s double-Glamour-cover hairstyle with this easy step-by-step from the hairstylist behind it!
Around these parts (meaning, this blog) Zooey Deschanel is somewhat of a star. She’s just kooky enough to make me scratch my head yet just sweet enough to make me love her all the same. And, she digs nail art. I mean, if you have no qualms about wearing cute nail art to swanky awards shows, you’re tops in my book. (Some might call you a fearless beauty. Just sayin’.)
So her February 2013 Glamour magazine cover is a delight: She’s got the handkerchief-inspired nail art (by talented L’Oréal nail artist Tom Bachik) and she’s got the glossiest, most covetable head of hair that’s not only highlighted in all it’s glory on the cover, but also on the back cover. That must be some head of hair to dominate two covers!
Perhaps we can’t all have Zooey’s perky attitude, googly doe eyes and luscious locks (though a good set of extensions could get you halfway there), but never mind that: We can at least learn how to style our hair just as this New Girl starlet does. The hairstylist who whipped her massive mane into a double-cover dominator, Roque, shares how he transformed Zooey into a version of a 1950s rodeo girl for Glamour. “That was photographer Ellen von Unwerth’s first impression after seeing the wardrobe selection for the shoot and knowing Zooey’s personality,” says Roque of the ’50s bent. “It’s great to take retro inspiration and modernize it through the use of individualized textures and shapes that are current and flattering.”
Yes, but how do we get this look? Roque (who exclusively used Oribe Hair Care products) breaks it down like this:
Step 1: Prep wet hair with Volumista and blow-dry with a 2-inch round brush. Wrap sections of hair onto 2-inch red Velcro rollers. Make sure to roll sections back away from the face. However, for the bangs and face-framing side sections, roll the hair forward (straight down for the bangs and at 45-degree angles for the sides).
Step 2: Once hair is all in rollers, spray with Superfine to set the curls. Let hair cool.
Step 3: Remove rollers. Tease hair at the root, section by section, and spray the hair shaft with Impermeable. This will create big, bouncy curls throughout the head and a retro ’50s-style shape at the crown (think country singer Loretta Lynn). Secure a loose half ponytail with a clip.
Step 4: Detail select pieces with Supershine for moisture and luster and Rough Luxury to maintain texture and dimension.
Voila! Now you are one step closer to magazine cover domination too. (Well…one can dream.)
