"Leighton Meester"

NYLON, November 2014
Hair by Bethany Brill

Actress Leighton Meester is on the November cover of
NYLON, and hairstylist Bethany Brill created a cool, rocker-girl look for the Gossip Girl-turned-movie star and singer-songwriter. “Leighton is growing her natural hair color, which is really silky,” said Brill. “So I didn’t want anything too prissy for her, just casual, textured ‘second day’ hair.”

Get the Look:
1. Create a center part and prep the hair with Foundation Mist around the crown and the ends.
2. Blow-dry the hair from underneath to open up the hair and add volume.
3. Take small sections of the hair and apply Superfine Hair Spray. Brush through the hair and wrap it around a 1 ¼-inch curling iron.
4. Mist Dry Texturizing Spray on the roots of the hair and massage it in with your fingertips.
5. Lightly tease the hair with a Mason Pearson brush and add a little half-tuck behind the ear.
