That is just what Emily Blunt and her fellow cast members had to do recently at back-to-back-to-back premieres in London, Paris, and New York for the new film Edge of TomorrowLani Reeves of Tomlinson Management Group created the distinctive red-carpet hair looks for Emily. 

“For the New York City premiere,” Lani explained, “I collaborated with Emily and makeup artist Jenn Streicher to come up with Emily’s look. We drew inspiration from the strapless Prada column gown in lipstick red, clashing with the hot pink accessories. From there I decided to create a sleek, classic, and simple side bun to echo the ultra-modern lines of Emily’s gown.”

Here is Lani’s step-by-step guide to Emily’s look:      Emily Blunt Right

First, I prepped Emily’s wet hair with René Furterer Vegetal Mousse and gave it a blowout with a soft-bristle round brush to smooth it out and get a sleek finish.

After misting her hair with René Furterer Vegetal Finishing Spray, using a soft-bristle flat brush, I brushed the hair into a low side part, brushing it over to the right side.

Next, I secured the ponytail with a hair band. I lightly sprayed the hair with René Furterer Vegetal Finishing Spray for extra hold and used a small amount of René Furterer Styling Wax to smooth any flyaways. When styling your own look, always make sure everything is perfect before preparing the bun.

To create texture, I lightly back-combed the ponytail, making the hair easier to secure. I then sprayed it again to add more hold.

I twisted the ponytail at the nape of the neck behind the ear into a bun and secured it with bobby pins. To finish, I sprayed the bun one last time with René Furterer Vegetal Finishing Spray for lasting hold.
