We loved Irish actress Saoirse Ronan’s modern version

of a Grecian do with gold threading as a back accent.

It was created by celebrity hairstylist Adir Aberge

who was inspired by her elegant dress.

“I loved how Saoirse’s Yves Saint Laurent dress was both romantic

and modern at the same time

– I wanted to bring in elements of the sleek, shiny and graphic

lines to complete the look” he explained, talking about the style he created for the event.Saoirse Ronanjohnfrieda2

Here is a step-by-step breakdown from his team so you can re-create the look:

“I prepped the hair by applying NEW John Frieda Luxurious Volume Perfectly Full Mousse all over the roots.

“I created the part by following the highest arch in the brow and blew her hair dry with a round brush. I then created a very sleek finish to the hair texture by flat ironing the ends.

“Once the hair was shiny and sleek, I took the side of her hair with the deep part and tucked it behind the ears for a clean look and sprayed with John Frieda Frizz Ease KeraFLEX Flexible Hold Hairspray.




“To start working on the back of the hair, I created some crisscrossing cornrow braids just under the ears and wrapped the braids with gold thread to add some great architectural lines to the look. Once I wrapped the braids in gold, I went over the back of her hair one more time with a flat iron to ensure a beautiful high finish.

“To complete this look, I took the crisscrossed braids and pinned them in place over the flat ironed hair to make two lines of gold.

For the last step and a finishing touch, I applied John Frieda Frizz Ease Expert Finish Polishing Serum on the ends.”
