The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has officially come to a close, and this year might have been the most exciting to date. There was not only countless film screenings that we’re incredibly moving: the world premiere of Lady Gaga’s new documentary The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has officially come to a close, and this year might have been the most exciting to date.

 

There was not only countless film screenings that we’re incredibly moving: the world premiere of Lady Gaga’s new documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two to the moving true love story Breathe starring Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy to name a few, but the stars seriously brought their A-game when it came to their red carpet looks. Without a doubt, Diane Kruger, who starred in the film In The Fade, was one of the best-dressed stars at TIFF, who looked like an absolute knockout in a metallic Prabal Gurung gown at the premiere of her latest film.

Hairstylist Bridget Brager styled Kruger’s hair to compliment the “strength and beauty” of her dress, and we were able to get the inside scoop on how to recreate Kruger’s incredible look from the stylist herself.

 

1. Blow it out
Beginning with wet hair, I used the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i dryer to rough dry the hair to enhance texture and volume. At the end of the blow dry, I used the cool shot while holding the roots up to ‘freeze’ the volume.

 

2. Set with a deep part
Once completely dry, I created a deep, angled side part with a rat tail comb.

 

3. Create a messy texture
Next, I separated the top section of the hair and clipped it while creating a low, sleek ponytail, using the T3 SinglePass Luxe flat Iron to create bends for a messy texture in the short ends of the ponytail.

 

4. Make bends
Taking down the top section, I then took 1” vertical sections and made bends in the hair using the T3 SinglePass Luxe Flat Iron.

  • Technique: I did this by clamping the flat iron on each section about an inch away from the head. I then began to create a half bend up, and then, opening my iron before making a complete turn, bent the hair in the opposite direction. I continued this technique down to the ends.

 

5. Finger comb the look
When completed, I used my fingers to relax the bends in the hair so it was not so wavy.

 

6. Backcomb for added height
Once I was at the very top of the head, I used a rat tail comb and backcombed for added height at the crown. Then, I made sure to make the same wave with the flat iron around the face for “perfect face-framing hair!”

 

7. Final touches
Finally, I mixed together a light oil and texture paste and scrunched the hair for added texture and shine. Once the hair was in place, I finished with a strong hairspray.

Now you can recreate Diane Kruger’s incredible red carpet look yourself the next time you have a big night on the town thanks to this step-by-step guide from hairstylist Bridget Brager.
