How can girls at home get Lily’s look from the “Mortal Instruments” premiere (above)? 

Lily’s top and skirt for the Berlin premiere had a very classic silhouette which inspired me to create a sophisticated updo, with a nod to old Hollywood. I started by applying L’Oreal Elnett heat protect spray all over Lily’s damp hair along with Phytovolume Actif to her roots. Then I blew dry her hair off her face and set in velcro rollers for extra volume. Once the hair was set in the rollers for a few minutes, I sprayed L’Oreal Elnett strong hold hairspray all over, adding a bit of texture and hold to her hair. Because this style is all about the volume, I gently back combed thought the whole head, then smoothed over the top layer for a soft look. I pulled the hair loosely back into a low ponytail, then again back combed the pony to create cushion for the bun. With a bristle brush, I smoothed over the top of the ponytail, then tucked the ends under and pinned in place, creating a looped bun. I finished by spraying with hairspray for extra hold. I used a Jennifer Behr bow just above the chignon for a classic look.

What kind of hair maintenance does Lily do? 

I always recommend using a deep conditioner at least once a week. I like putting conditioner on the hair, covering it with a shower cap while in the shower, and letting it steam for about 10 minutes, then rinsing.

What’s the best hair trick you’ve learned over the years? 

Take risks and have fun with it. If you don’t try you’ll never know!
