From Disney kid to horror movie star and now everyone’s favorite Wednesday Addams, Jenna Ortega has quite literally taken over Hollywood in recent years. After gaining tons of buzz and traction for her staring role in the new Netflix series, Wednesday the 20-year old star has been getting pretty used to having all eyes on her. After appearing on The Tonight Show with a bold new chop, many fans were curious to know just how the celeb went about her transformation. Luckily, Ortega’s hairstylist, David Stanwell, dished all the deets about our beloved Wednesday’s new look.
Stanwell started, of course, by giving Ortega’s hair a quick chop, achieving somewhat of a piecey, shaggy, wolfcut. Next, the stylist went in with the Authentic Beauty Concept Amplifying Mousse ($25) and the brand’s Beachy Texture Spray ($25) while the star’s hair was wet and then “blow dried with a brush directing the hair every which way,” creating that messy, textured look. To emphasize the look, Stanwell then used a curling iron to create “rough” bends and add more movement to the hair.
Next, he used the Authentic Beauty Concept Airy Texture Spray ($25) and “blasted the hair around” to further increase the intentionally shaggy and messy ‘do. To finish up, Stanwell used the Authentic Beauty Concept Shaping Cream ($25) and the Solid Pomade ($25) “to keep that piecey, effortless look and to ensure it would hold throughout the night.”
