Bored with the same old half updo? Take a tip from Kristen Bell, who wore a retro-inspired style with a shoelace-esque twist to a UNICEF event in Los Angeles. “I wanted to play against her outfit and create a cool, laid back ease,” her hairstylist Marcus Francis said. After letting Bell’s strands air dry to bring out natural texture, Francis gave her hair a blast of volumizing spray and loosely wrapped sections around a curling iron in alternating directions. He brushed out her curls to create an undone appearance, then teased hair at the crown to give it height. The finishing touch was Bell’s unique twist in the back. “Pull back a section of hair starting at the temple on either side and cross section over the other, looping them like you would a shoelace, and fasten with large hair pins,” Francis advised.
