Naomi Watts’ Romantic Twisted Bun

close formula

At the 52nd Annual New York Film Festival in Tribeca, actress Naomi Watts warranted tons of hair accolades for her stunning, romantic, twisted bun. “I styled Naomi’s hair in a specific manner to accentuate the romantic feel of her dress, yet kept it looking fresh and contemporary,” said Macadamia Professional Celebrity Stylist, Giannandrea.”The look was about modern glamour and femininity.”


Artist: Giannandrea
Manufacturer: Macadamia Professional

Products Used



Start with damp hair and apply Macadamia Professional Foaming Volumizer throughout the root area and on the length—practically saturating the hair with it.


Dry hair in large sections using a large, round brush.


Once dry, set hair with medium Velcro rollers (for added volume) and spray each section with Macadamia Professional Control Spray and leave the rollers in for 15 to 20 minutes. Giannandrea recommends brushing the waves—roots to midlengths—gently with a Macadamia Professional Paddle Brush.


Next, create a center part in the hair and lightly back-brush the crown area on top of the head. Giannandrea recommends adding a bit of Macadamia Professional Dry Shampoo at the roots only for extra “grip” if needed.


Use a small amount of Macadamia Professional Whipped Detailing Cream, emulsify it in your hands, and run it with your fingers through the hair.


Finally, pull the hair back gently at the bottom of the nape and start to twist and shape it into a soft, messy bun.


Secure the bun with pins, but be sure to let some soft pieces of hair fall loosely in front to frame the face (a bit of flyaways are not only okay, they add to the deconstructed feel of the style).


Use a 1-inch curling iron on the front pieces for more curl/wave if needed. Hairspray lightly to finish the look.
