Get the Look: Anna Kendrick by Craig Gangi

You are here

Anna decided to wear a chic black low cut suit, so I wanted to give her that sexy Parisian women's hair - hair that looks effortlessly beautiful. Hair that looks like it's been un-styled yet has a soft touchable loose wave. Craig Gangi

To achieve this look I began by applying UNITE U Oil to Anna's damp hair. This product is amazing at repairing a damaged cuticle and making the hair feel healthy again. It also creates a soft weightless shine.

I then sprayed UNITE Boosta generously over her damp hair. This builds body and creates extra texture and movement. I didn't want to lose Anna’s natural volume, so I blow-dried her hair with a vent brush, not a round brush. After Anna's hair was dry I curled it using my T3 1.25 single pass twirl iron.

After curling each 1 1/2 inch section with the iron, I then combed each section out with my fingers to create that loose effortless wave. If the curl is not loosened it could look unnatural and you could end up with that prom curl.

After the hair was curled I used an extra wide tooth comb to loosen the wave even more. I then used UNITE Texturiza dry finishing spray, this created even more volume and added a nice dry texture to the hair. I wanted to show off Anna’s stunning earring, so I swept the hair off to one side so it could not be hidden.

Finally I lightly sprayed UNITE Session Max over the style to control any flyaway’s and to keep it firmly in place.
