Rosie Huntington-Whiteley dropped jaws at the NYC premiere of Tranformers: Dark of the Moon on Tuesday night. Wearing a red hot Antonio Berardi gown, the Victoria’s Secret supermodel brought Old Hollywood glamour to the sexiest degree, depending on top hairstylist Yiotis Panayiotou to finish off her fabulous look. RadarOnline.com has all the details on how to get Rosie’s look, straight from the London-born stylist himself!
“For the Transformers: Dark of the Moon premiere, I wanted to go for a glamorous, Old Hollywood look to complement Rosie’s dress,” explained Panayiotou, who used all Leonor Greyl products on the model-turned-actress’ hair. “It was almost Jessica Rabbit-inspired. This style transcends all cultures and hair types, and it is universally flattering.”
First, Panayiotou washed Rosie’s hair in Leonor Greyl Shampooing au Miel, a gentle volumizing shampoo that can be used every day, and then used conditioned her hair with a masque to keep it well-nourished.
“I like to use either the Masque Fleurs de Jasmin or Masque à l’Orchidée on Rosie and I usually pick the Masque Fleurs de Jasmin for daytime and the Masque à l’Orchidée for evening,” he added.
Next up, he applied Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice to the hair and a little Lait Luminescence, a detangling milk, to the ends, working them into the hair to allow them time to absorb and be more effective.
Before styling he notes, “I make sure not to overdo it with products. I always want Rosie’s hair to stay light and volumized and too much product will weight it down.”
After blow-drying, he curled large sections of her hair with a medium-barreled curling iron.
“The key to curling the hair this way is to react differently to the hair on different parts of the head: in the back, I curled upward starting at the ends of the hair, but to ensure that the curls fall nicely, stop before getting all the way to the roots. In the front and on the sides, I curled sections in alternating directions and pinned them into pin curls to allow them to set.”
After removing the pins and lightly brushing through with a large, flat brush he sprayed the hair with Voluforme again and applied a little more Sérum de Soie Sublimateur to the ends. He finished off the looking by pinning one side back for balance and texture.
