Get the Look: Amber Heard's Modern Take on Veronica Lake Hair

by Rachel Vensand

With a premiere for a movie like Magic Mike XXL, you’d think that it would be hard to divert attention from Channing Tatum and his unreal physique. But leave it to jaw-dropping Amber Heard to steal the show, wearing a low-cut deep-purple Monique Lhuillier dress with a modern take on Old Hollywood waves, courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler. The man behind the look explains, “I started with her hair damp and applied Leonor Greyl Serum de Soie Sublimateur on the ends. Her ends are highlighted and more delicate, so when blown out, blond hair like that can look dry when it’s really not. The serum really helps to keep the hair looking healthy and shiny.” Next, Butler used Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice from Heard’s roots to the ends of her hair, followed by a full blow-dry. Afterward, Butler sprayed Leonor Greyl Voluforme into her roots to add volume. “Amber has finer hair, so I used a medium-barrel curling iron and created really classic, loose waves set with a side part. I created the curls by first wrapping her hair around the curling iron away from the face in smaller sections for a more spiral curl. Then, after the curls cooled, I brushed them out with a wide-tooth comb to break apart the curls a bit. The look is super classic and glam, and that’s who she is,” Butler explained. To add a final touch to Heard’s radiant hair, Butler misted the hair with Leonor Greyl Laque Souple, locking in her curls while keeping the hair movable and soft to the touch. The result was nothing short of gorgeous!
