Grace Kelly Inspired Updo for Jane Krakowski by Creighton Bowman

Jane Krakowski, co-star of NBC’s hit series, 30 Rock, looked absolutely ravishing in an orange sherbet sequined KAUFMANFRANCO gown at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. To play up the glamour of her gorgeous gown and glittering David Webb jewels, celebrity stylist Creighton Bowman of Exclusive Artists Management created a romantic textured chignon with alluring side-swept bangs. “We were going for a young, modern twist on a classic Grace Kelly style,” says Creighton. “The look gives a 2013 edge to the retro vibe of her gown.”

Herewith, the scoop on how Creighton brought classic romance up to the minute for Jane:

« First, I washed Jane’s hair with René Furterer OKARA Light Activating Shampoo followed with René Furterer OKARA Light Activating Conditioner. The anti-fading formula created especially for highlighted and lightened hair helped protect Jane’s beautiful blonde hair color, and kept it looking vibrant.

« To prep Jane’s hair for styling, I applied René Furterer VEGETAL STYLING Straightening Gel from roots to ends on towel-dried hair to smooth it and protect it again heat. Next, I applied René Furterer VEGETAL STYLING Vegetal Mousse to the roots for volume and structure.

« Using a medium round brush, I gave Jane’s hair a basic round brush blow-out with a messy deep side part.

« To give her hair texture, I first put in random curls with a ½ inch curling iron. Then I broke up the curl pattern with a flat iron and sprayed her hair with René Furterer NATURIA Dry Shampoo to give it an undone texture.

« Next, I pulled Jane’s hair into a low loose ponytail. The ponytail was wrapped into a loose chignon with a few stray pieces before it was secured into place with hairpins.

« I finished with a few spritz of René Furterer VEGETAL STYLING Vegetal Finishing Spray to hold everything in place and give it great shine. The romantic texture gave Jane a sexy, young, and modern look for the 2013 SAG Awards!
