Rachel Weisz Modern Hollywood Glam Cannes 2015



Rachel Weisz looked perfectly polished in a custom Louis Vuitton gown at the Cannes Film Festival on the evening of Friday, May 15 at the premiere of “The Lobster”. Nexxus New York Salon Care Global Creative Director Kevin Mancuso shares the “how-to” for re-creating Rachel’s glam look.

“Ahead of the festival, I created a cut with shape and unrestricted movement for Rachel that maximizes the movement in her hair - think ‘liquid geometry’. Rachel's natural hair texture is soft, with a gorgeous loose wave; the length just grazes the shoulder and works beautifully with the shaped layering throughout the cut.  To complete the cut, I added in several disconnected layers to create a customized look specifically for Rachel,” - Kevin Mancuso

Beauty Inspiration: For last evening’s premiere, the look is a modern take on Hollywood glamour to complement Rachel’s beautiful white and silver gown.


Kevin’s “Get The Look” For Rachel Weisz at Cannes:

Step 1: Spray Nexxus New York Salon Care Diametress Lavish Body Gel Spray on damp hair to add soft, touchable volume.

Step 3: Blow dry each section on high-heat using a medium round brush to smooth the hair, then allow to cool before releasing.  Use a nozzle on the blow dryer to direct the heat for more controlled drying of the strands.

Step 3: Once complete, apply Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Encapsulate Serum to help with manageability while styling.

Step 4: Use a medium curling iron to create modern, Hollywood waves by wrapping the hair around the barrel from mid-length to ends to avoid building too much volume at the root. The curls were also loose and unformed to create a soft, glamorous feel.   
Allow the hair to cool and brush through the style with a Mason Pearson soft bristle brush to create movement.

Step 5: Finish with Nexxus New York Salon Care Comb Thru Finishing Mist to add flexible hold.
