When the Mad Max: Fury Road ac­tress stepped out with loose ten­drils and a messy plait, it gave her tai­lored look a mod­ern edge. Here’s how to recre­ate it.

1 Give your hair grip Mist towel-dried hair from root to ends with a wave spray or mousse like [1] Moroc­canoil Dry Tex­ture Spray (R385). It adds “tons of tex­ture,” says hair­styl­ist Jen Atkin, who cre­ated Ri­ley’s look for the Amer­i­can Honey pre­miere in Cannes, France. Then blow-dry while brush­ing hair in ev­ery direc­tion – front, back, side to side – with a pad­dle brush to build vol­ume.


Do a re­verse (or in­verted) plait Once your hair is dry, grab a 5cm sec­tion at the crown of your head and split it into three pieces. Start a re­verse braid, cross­ing each piece un­der the other (in­stead of over). Af­ter three crosses, start adding to the side sec­tions as you con­tinue to cross the side sec­tions un­der the mid­dle sec­tion. This cre­ates the in­side-out ef­fect. Con­tinue to the ends (or, if your hair is chin-length or shorter, braid just to ear level) and tie.

Slide a few bobby pins into the top and mid­dle sec­tions of the braid to keep it in place, and hold with a spritz of hair­spray. TRY [3] Davines Per­fect­ing Hair­spray (R385).
