In the run-up to last night's New Moon premiere, I spoke with Ashley Greene's stylist, Ted Gibson, about how he creates her hairstyles. "It takes over an hour to create her sexy, voluminous hair," he dished. Want to find out more about how he created her look, what it's like working with her extensions, and what he does to keep her hair healthy? Then just read on.
How did you create Ashley’s look?
A downtown-girl hip ponytail is all the rage with this look for the premiere. First, start off with a really good blow-dry using Build It Blowdrying Spray ($20) at the roots to create volume. Use a lightweight styling cream on the rest of the hair, and then blowdry. To create that ultimate sexy texture, use a large barrel curling iron on medium heat to add texture and volume. After putting the ponytail in, use a shine lotion to add more texture and lightweight shine.
How did you work with her extensions?
Adding a clip-in ponytail extension is the best way to get this look. It's a full piece that gives hair fullness and length for the perfect ponytail.
Given the number of red carpet appearances she does, how do you keep Ashley’s hair healthy?
A nightly hair serum like Goodnite Replenishing Hair Repair Serum ($100) is a perfect way to keep hair in good condition and scalps in balance.
