This past weekend, The Vampire Diaries was honored at PaleyFest 2012 in Beverly Hills. Nina Dobrev especially gleamed by showing off her inner vampy glam girl, pairing a flirty, black ruffled dress with an equally adorable updo. And if you read on, you can find out how to recreate it on your own!
With the skills of TRESemmé’s Celebrity Stylist John D., who created the look, he “wanted to create a chic, textured side knot that complemented Nina’s dress, without distracting from its gorgeous ruffle detail.” Though of course, you don’t need a stylist to do this look, since it’s actually pretty simple. Just have a large curling iron, hair elastic, and pins at your side and read on:
Step 2: Blow dry hair with a round brush for extra fullness.
Step 3: Take 2-3 inch sections of hair and loosely curl with a large barrel curling iron, spraying each section with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray to aid in protecting hair from excess heat.
(*Stylist Secret: Adding loose waves to the style will help the side knot fall into place and stay in place all night long.)
Step 5: Then twist the hair into a knot and secure with pins until it is secure.
Step 6: Complete the style with a spritz of TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray to help add shine and keep the look in place.
