Emily Blunt’s Classic Chignon

Three cities in 24 hours—that was the challenge facing celebrity hairstylist Laini Reeves of Tomlinson Management Group in creating three distinctive red-carpet hair looks for Edge of Tomorrow star Emily Blunt. For the NYC Premiere, Laini collaborated with Emily and makeup artist Jenn Streicher to come up with Emily’s look, drawing inspiration from her strapless Prada column gown in lipstick red and her hot pink accessories. “From there I decided to create a sleek, classic and simple side bun to echo the ultra-modern lines of Emily’s gown,” reveals Laini. Here’s how to create Emily’s chic look.

First, prep wet hair with René Furterer VEGETAL MOUSSE and gave it a blowout with a soft-bristle round brush to smooth it out and get a sleek finish.


After misting hair with René Furterer VEGETAL FINISHING SPRAY, using a soft-bristle flat brush, brush the hair into a low side part, brushing hair over to the right side.


Next, secure the ponytail with a hairband. Lightly spray the hair with René Furterer VEGETAL FINISHING SPRAY for extra hold and use a small amount of René Furterer STYLING WAX to smooth any flyaways. When styling your own look, always make sure everything is perfect before preparing the bun.


To create texture, lightly back-comb the ponytail, making the hair easier to secure. Then spray it again to add more hold.

Twist the ponytail at the nape of the neck behind the ear into a bun and secure it with bobby pins. To finish, spray the bun one last time with René Furterer VEGETAL FINISHING SPRAY for lasting hold.
