WHO: Kirsten Dunst
HAIR BY: Celebrity Hairstylist Marcus Francis for Olivia Garden
INSPIRATION: We were so excited to debut Kirsten‘s shortest haircut in 17 years for the Bottega Veneta show at Milan Fashion Week. Having just chopped 6 inches off, we decided to keep the look classic and cool to match her new chic length, creating some natural bends to frame her face.
ABOUT THE CUT: I cut the hair into a cut point cutting to give the hair texture. I also cut the weight out of the ends to give the hair movement using a feathering method with the sheets and thinning shears in spots to make sure the cut didn’t go too triangular.
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: For the haircut, I used the Cara Shears to create the new and improved length that falls to her chin and gorgeously frames her face. I cut the hair into a cut point, giving the hair texture. I also cut the weight out of the ends to give the hair movement using a feathering method with the sheets and thinning shears in spots to make sure the cut didn’t go too triangular. With the chop complete, I blew her hair dry with the Ceramic + Ion Hair Dryer and the NanoThermic Round Thermal Brush, which allowed me to keep the hair smooth and close to the head in order to give the fullness to the ends we had envisioned. Next, I used the EcoHair Round Brush for the section at the nape to create a tighter hold and a smoother finish. Finally, with the hair dry and smooth, I used the Ceramic + Ion Flat Iron to create micro bends that mimic a natural air dried texture. I used the flat iron in alternating directions on the back and bending away from the face so the hair fell perfectly around her face.
