Last night, a crop of stars gathered for a night of celebration at the annual Elle Women In Hollywood awards. The red carpet was filled gorgeous fashion and beauty looks, but it was Lucy Hale’s stylish updo that really caught our eye.
From the front, it looked as if Lucy was wearing a slicked back low bun with a middle part. However, her hairstylist Kristin Ess shared a photo of the back view of the hairstyle only to reveal an unconventional styling hack. She incorporated pieces of gold wire to join the top and bottom halves of Lucy’s hair. The wire was wrapped around down diagonally across her head, and also wrapped around a loose bun at the bottom to keep it in place. We know it sounds confusing, but the proof is all in the picture.
It’s a great way of still wearing a statement hair accessory, while not having your hairstyle look overbearing. Lucy’s ‘do is convincing enough to ditch our hair ties, headbands, and hair clips and trade them in for some gold accents. We might have to grab some metallic wire and try this one for ourselves.
