How-To: Karolina Kurková's CFDA Hairstyle

How-To: Karolina Kurková's CFDA Hairstyle

Last night at the CFDA Awards in New York City, the stunning model Karolina Kurková arrived with her hair back in a chic chignon that somehow managed not to look overly done. The look was created by Michel Aleman for Frédéric Fekkai, who was aiming to create something neat and sophisticated to enhance her natural beauty.

There were so many cool hairstyles at this event, don't you think? To find out exactly how Michel styled Karolina's hair and what products he used, read more.

  • STEP 1: Michel began by applying a generous amount of Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel to the roots of Karolina's hair to create volume and add lift. He then used the (amazing) Bespoke Labs T3 Featherweight Dryer to fully dry her hair while brushing it back away from her face.
  • STEP 2: Next, he parted her hair on the side and applied some Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Crème for added thickness and texture.
  • STEP 3: Then, he gathered all of her hair at the nape of her neck. He twisted it into the shape of the number eight, creating a version of the French twist. He pinned the hair in place using bobby pins while taking loose pieces around the back of her head to make the look seem more effortless and less constructed.
  • STEP 4: To make sure the hair would stay in place, he sprayed Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray all over, followed by a distant shot of cool air from the dryer to set the spray. Lastly, he lightly spritzed a little bit of Fekkai Glossing Shine Mist as a finishing touch.
