Milla Jovovich has such a effortlessly chic style. The model, designer, actress, and musician has this enviable knack for taking classic hair and makeup looks, turning them into modern interpretations with a bit of an edge.
It's Fashion Week in Paris, and at the Louis Vuitton show, Milla's pop-of-pink lip color, paired with the faintest hint of gold eye shadow, were uncomplicated, yet stunning. I'm digging how she chose a slightly tousled hairstyle, pulled back into a loopy bun. Do you like what you see? Get the hair how-to when you read more.
- Step one: This style is much easier to accomplish on hair that's not freshly washed. If your hair is squeaky clean, however, you can "dirty" it up with product. Try Pantene Pro-V Style Texturize! Spray Wax ($6) or Frederic Fekkai Wave Spray ($20).
- Step two: Tease the hair around the nape of the neck to create volume. This also establishes a nice base for the bobby pins to cling to in step four. Lightly smooth out teased hair with a comb.
- Step three: Create a middle part in the front of the hair. Gather the rest of the hair back into a ponytail at the base of the neck, leaving out a few face-framing pieces.
- Step four: Now is the fun part. Take about a quarter inch piece of hair from your ponytail. Create a loop shape by pinning this hair to the base of the ponytail. Next, take another quarter-inch piece of hair and thread it through the previous piece. Pin into place. With each quarter-inch section of hair you take, get creative. Pin some just to the base of your ponytail. Then, loop others through previously pinned pieces — twisting and turning along the way. The overall effect? Like it was professionally done.
