Although Allison William's gorgeous side swept bangs didn't make an appearence on the Red Carpet, we loved her sweet modern look. Going along with the theme of the gala, Manus x Machina, her look was inspired by the idea of couture vs. ready to wear. The look, dreamt up by Rebekah Forecast for amika, was made to complement Allison’s dress, a style that is both traditional, yet modern. The fishtail braid, with added volume to the front of the hair, is a new twist on a traditional updo and shape. Rebekah Forecast made an absolutely breathtaking style and is giving you the steps to this look... 


Step 1        Starting with damp hair, apply amika Bombshell Blowout Spray throughout the hair.

Step 2        Next, apply amika Heat Defense Serum and blow-dry the hair using the amika Power Cloud
Force Dryer

Step 3        At the hairline, add extra volume with the amika Digital Titanium Glide Styler to add a bend in the root—the hair should not lie flat against the head.

Step 4        Begin to fishtail the hair in a spiral formation around the head, and secure with pins, as needed.

Step 5        As your separate the hair into sections, apply amika Curl Defining Cream to add volume and shine.

Step 6        After each section of braid, gently tug on the section and spray with amika Un.Done Texture Spray to add thickness and secure the style.

Step 7        Continue to spiral the fishtail, and once complete, seal the look with amika Touchable Hairspray.


This look is a new take on a much loved fishtail style, Rebekah Forecast, we LOVE it... your perfection is appreciated. If you can't seem to get enough of this look and want more inspiration be sure to check out these tips and tutorials
