Get Kate Winslet's Look


Yes, before you say it, we know that this bit reads like a press release (because it is – well, not this/this bit, but the part below where Kate Winslet’s ‘do is discussed). Still, Campora did do the stunner’s hair and this is what his peeps sent to us at BeansTalk. We’re not telling you to go out and buy every product to look like her, but we thought you might be curious how it was all concocted.

(Here’s where the release really begins)

This year at the 15th Annual SAG Awards, Kate Winslet’s glamorous low bun and side swept bang as seen on the red carpet was created exclusively by Frederic Fekkai stylist Renato Campora using Fekkai products.

Actress Kate Winslet arrived at the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on 25 January 2009 in Los Angeles, California, wearing a low bun “that [was] soft and elegant with a touch of modernity”

Capora on How To Get Winslet’s Look:

"Apply FEKKAI MORE ALL DAY DENSITY MOUSSE to wet hair for added volume.

On the bottom portion only apply FEKKAI COIFF MAGNIFIQUE to ends for a smooth blowout and to protect hair from the heat of styling tools.

Using the FEKKAI EXTRA LARGE ROUND BRUSH blow dry hair and part on the right side.

Once completely dry, use a one inch curling iron throughout hair to create tousled movement with dimension.

Apply FEKKAI TECHNICIAN GLAZE to ends working it through with fingers for texture that is not too heavy.

Tease the top of the head ever so slightly to create a touch of height.

Next pull hair back into a low ponytail.

Create a loose braid and twist it around to form a bun.

Secure with pins.

Making a braid helps to keep the bun from appearing too severe and gives it the soft modern touch."

Fekkai All Day Density Mousse ($25)
Fekkai Coiff Magnifique ($23)
Fekkai Extra Large Round Brush ($65)
Fekkai Technician Glaze ($20)
