Finally, Josh uses pins to secure most of the hair into a twisted bun at the nape of Comer's neck, leaving one small section to wrap around the side and tuck into
the existing bun to create the "graphic" effect Josh was after — a small detail you won't want to miss when Comer turns and twirls on the red carpet.
Josh spreads a dize-size amount of the serums and avoids applying it at the roots to ensure the hair has enough grip and doesn't appear greasy rather than glossy. "Prepping the hair with a frizz product allows for the hair to be set from the beginning, which means this style doesn’t require many touchups," he says.
Because the goal of this look is sleekness rather than volume, he makes sure to pull the hair downwards as it dries for a "dramatic effect with no body" and then reaches for his Ceramic Flatiron. "[I] smooth the hair in small sections, touching up any dry ends with a small amount of Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch Up Crème for a polished look.
As Josh tells Allure, the key to creating Comer's look was to let her "bold" and grandeur" dress do most of the talking. "When you have a dress with this kind of architecture, the hair needs to be graphic, clean, and chic," he says.
Her dress was no match for the "graphic" bun styled by Harry Josh. https://t.co/zmf0HZeHJp— Allure (@Allure_magazine) January 6, 2020
