On Weds., the cast of Avengers: Endgame stepped out in London for a franchise event, and Scarlett Johansson's sleek updo was something to behold. Dressed in a structural black cutout top and trousers by Tom Ford, the 34-year-old nailed the unconventional take on a classic tuxedo, and her hairstyle was a chic and distinctive cherry on top. Johansson stars as the Black Widow in the action film, and naturally wowed on the red carpet for the big event.
The stunning creation is all thanks to hairstylist Jenny Cho, who took to Instagram to share limited details on the dazzling look, which she coins a "sleek down and up with a center part." Though it appears to be a style that laymen may want to sit out on, upon further inspection, it's less complicated than you might think.
In a world full of blunt lobs and tousled waves, a sleek updo is a sophisticated switch-up to consider for spring. Regardless of whether you're headed to a black tie affair or hitting up happy hour with friends, the elevated hairstyle is a simple way to showcase a bold lip or show off your favorite ear candy.
Start by separating smoothed-out strands into two sections, top and bottom. Sweep the bottom section back with a smoothing brush and twist and secure with a hair tie or bungee.
Once the bottom section is twisted in the back (about midway up your head), part the top section down the middle, smoothing each side down diagonally with the brush, layering hair over the bottom section. Last, secure it beneath the twist using bobby pins, leaving a few wispy pieces out if desired.
