GIRL CRUSH: Uma Thurman

GIRL CRUSH: Uma Thurman

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Uma Thurman walking a red carpet… and it was SO worth the wait! At Tuesday night’s LA premiere of her new film, Ceremony, directed by my friend Max Winkler, (it’s a must-see!), Uma looked fierce as ever. She put a contemporary twist on the staple braid, with flowing strands of curls, and did thick liner and lashes paired with a mauveish pink pout. Her hair hue wasn’t too blonde, more golden like a modern-day Rapunzel.

At 40 years old, the actress has never looked better (or more youthful). Loving it!

Here’s how to get the hair, straight from celeb stylist David Babaii, who tamed the tresses:

*David prepared Uma’s freshly washed and conditioned hair by massaging a dime size amount of Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment into her tresses from roots to ends, combing it through with a wide tooth comb for even distribution.

*Next, he used a blow dryer to dry the hair with a large round brush, lifting the root area for added volume and cupping the ends under for a smooth, rounded finish.

*After drying, he applied an additional amount of Pequi Oil for control and then loosely gathered the hair with his fingers and braiding it into a long, loose braid down the center back.

*He secured it with a rubber band while leaving the shorter top and side layers free.

*To finish, David created soft loose curls with a 1 ½” curling iron by taking large sections and wrapping them around the inside barrel, holding for a few seconds.

*He then released allowing the curls to fall naturally to achieve a true French Bohemian Look.

So simple, I could totally rock this red carpet ‘do at home! Watch out, Friday night…
