Celebrity Stylist Adir Abergel Breaks Down Saoirse Ronan’s Look for ‘Brooklyn’ Premiere! #beautybreakdown #LAStory
Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel created an ethereal updo for movie star Saoirse Ronan at the red carpet premiere of “Brooklyn” in New York City on Wednesday using Leonor Greyl products.
Saoirse Ronan wore a romantic black dress with lace sleeves and leather. Adir was inspired by the unexpected duality of the dress, and created a textured updo to match.
“Soft and hard were the two elements of her dress: the softness of the lace and the harder textures of the leather. I mimicked an ethereal feel with some edge by adding a golden metal flower headband to the back of the head with the soft textured hair.”
Adir wanted the look to have a dry texture, so he began by applying Leonor Greyl Mousse Au Lotus Volumatrice to the roots and through the mid shaft. To create maximum volume, he diffused the hair until it was 100% dry.
“Once the hair was completely dry, I took a ¾ inch iron and curled the hair into a soft wave by tugging on the curl while it was still hot to relax it,” he explains. “To make it look natural, I left the ends out.”
Adir gave the look separation by using Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel Styling Cream, applying a dime-sized amount to his hands, rubbing them together as if applying hand cream, and then running it through the hair. Next, he sprayed >Leonor Greyl Laque Souple Styling Spray to lock in the wave and for a romantic, undone appearance.
“After hand raking it back, keeping lots of volume at the roots and the crown, I twisted the hair into a half French twist. I pinned the half-twist into place, and then I took the flower headband and put the headband under the French twist, just above the nape. Whatever hair was left underneath, I twisted and then pinned into place with a few bobby pins, so it became a ponytail at the bottom. Then I took a few of those hairs to cover half of the headband so it wasn’t completely exposed.”
For the finishing touch, Adir spritzed Leonor Greyl Laque Souple Styling Spray to keep everything in place. “It gave the look a bit more grit,” he says. “All the texture was a perfect juxtaposition against the duality of the softness and the hardness.”
