One could easily argue that Adir Abergel is the most in-demand red carpet hairstylist working today. He gives waves to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, sleek crops to Rooney Mara, and messy texture to Reese Witherspoon on the regular — but, his updos are what really wow.
We're talking about the kind of technique and creative prowess that have been around the world and back: to Johnny Depp's private island with Amber Heard for their hush-hush wedding to countless press tours for Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Garner, and Jessica Biel. Luckily for us, he took a break from those chignons, braids, and low knots, to visit our L.A. offices, located a few blocks from where he grew up in Hollywood.
Just for us, Abergel created three wildly different updos — from romantic and voluminous, to modern and sleek. And they all have one thing in common: They're surprisingly easy. Click ahead and prepare to dive into these three 'dos.
Want a beauty bonus? Our model's glowing complexion came courtesy of celeb makeup artist Carissa Ferreri, and her clever mixture of Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation, Tom Ford's Shade and Illuminate, and Laura Mercier's Stick Face Color in Coral Glow, blended with a BeautyBlender. And those bright eyes? That's Josie Maran's Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow in Playa Del Pink smudged directly on the lid.
