No brush required! Mila Kunis‘ textured bun from the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 22, is a reminder that not all topknots are cookie-cutter clones.
Although Kunis’ naturally wavy tresses look artfully intricate, her hairstylist, Renato Campora, told Us Weekly that he created it without even using a brush.
“We wanted her hair to complement her [sparkly Zuhair Murad minidress], so we thought a high bun would be the perfect way to keep [it] out of her face and add to her overall fresh and sophisticated look,” Campora tells Us Weekly exclusively. “I rough-dried her hair using only my hands to create texture and natural volume. I didn’t use any brushes or combs, for a more unfinished look.” Then, he sprayed Infusium 23’s Repair + Renew Leave-In Treatment on her dry hair to keep strands in place and amplify her natural waves.
Afterward, the L.A.-based hair guru curled random pieces using PRO Beauty Tools 1 1/4 Curling Iron to add more volume. After separating out a few soft tendrils to frame the Bad Moms star’s face, Campora pulled the rest of her hair into a high ponytail and loosely braided it. To finish, he wrapped the plait into a coil at the top of her head and secured with pins.
The best part about this look? There’s no need to have every strand in place. “The more texture, the better for creating a look like this!” Campora, who works with Jessica Chastain and Melissa McCarthy, told Us. “The end result doesn’t need to be completely polished — that gives it a ton of texture.”
