Matrix celebrity stylist Mark Townsend created Amy Adams’ beautiful red carpet hairstyles for both the Los Angeles screening and New York premiere of Julie & Julia.
For the New York premiere, Townsend, wanted Amy’s hair to be modern and glamorous to match her Carolina Herrera gown. “I’ve been very inspired lately by hairstyles from the 80s with lots of volume,” he says.
He started by spraying Biolage volumatherapie Bodifying Spray Gel into Amy’s damp hair and blow dried it with a medium size Spornette Mixed Bristle round brush to get a good deal of volume in her hair. Next, Townsend set her hair with hot rollers, making sure to wrap the hair around the roller from roots to ends to give it a nice wave. Once the hair was cool, he removed the rollers and brushed out her hair with a flat brush, parting it to the side. To add some texture and shine, he sprayed Biolage Shine Endure Spritz into her hair and gave it a scrunch. Lastly, he sprayed down any flyaway hair with Vavoom ShapeMaker hairspray.
“For the Los Angeles screening of Julie & Julia, I was inspired by beauty shots from the 80s that I’ve collected over the years, very Carol Alt,” Townsend comments. He added Vavoom Gold Heat Blow-In Volume Protective Lotion to Amy’s damp hair and blow dried it with a Mason Pearson brush, lifting the roots for some height and keeping the ends straight. To add some texture to the hair, he then rubbed Vavoom Loosely Defined Texture Cream into his hands and then raked them through Amy’s hair. “I love the way it makes the hair super shiny and piece-y looking.”
