How to Get Elizabeth Banks's Allure Hairstyle

The Hairstyle You'll Want to Wear Every Day This Summer

Elizabeth Banks looked like she walked straight out of the 1970s for her Allure June cover, and it's thanks to Oribe, editorial hairstylist extraordinaire. Using a Patti Hansen cover from the disco-era for inspiration, as it turns out, the retro-themed style is perfect for modern times, as well. "The fullness at the sides gives it a really interesting, beautiful look," Oribe explained. And because the top is pulled back just a touch, "it's great for Summer to get your bangs off your face," he added. To get the exact four steps for achieving Elizabeth's warm-weather bouffant, read more.

  1. Start by prepping the hair with Oribe's Volumista Mist For Volume at the roots, followed by a few spritzes of Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray from midshaft to ends.
  2. Blow the hair out until it's smooth.
  3. Add extra volume at the roots and the hairline with the brand's Dry Texturizing Spray.
  4. Then, finish by simply pulling a section from the front back, securing it with a barrette or bobby pins.
