Get the look: Katie Holmes's tousled-chic ballerina bun
We're big fans of Katie Holmes around here, so it's no surprise we thought 'The Giver' star looked absolutely flawless at the movie's New York premiere this week. Katie wore an ethereal pale pink Zac Posen dress, and topped the look off with a tousled-chic ballerina bun. Of course, just when we thought the top knot was on it's way out, Katie managed to make the style look effortlessly cool again.
We knew as soon as we saw the photos that we needed to copy this look, so we got the scoop from Katie's hairstylist (and mastermind behind this genius bun), Sabastian Scolarici. "Katie's look was a nod to old Hollywood with a modern edge. The tone for Katie's look was set by the impeccable Zac Posen dress, with her hair perfectly complementing the style with a simple high knot with a hint of texture," Scolarici said.
OK, easy enough -- or so we thought. Scolarici clued us in on the exact products you need to get this look on your own. See the step-by-step process below.
6 Steps to Katie Holmes's Tousled-Chic Bun
