Claire Danes Vogue look revealed

Claire Danes

Claire Danes' hairdresser has shared his tips on how to get her Vogue cover look.

The actress stars on the cover of the August edition of US Vogue, where she shows off her blonde locks in an effortlessly cool style.

Cuban-American born celebrity hair expert Oribe Canales is the man responsible for coiffing Claire's mane for the shoot.

He created hair that complemented the sleek trench coat she wears on the cover.

The shoot was inspired by Claire's Homeland character Carrie Mathison, which Oribe says meshes with her own simple and chic aesthetic perfectly.

"It's clean, easy, all-American hair with a bit of sex appeal," Oribe explained to Bella Sugar, "It's very Claire Danes."

The celebrity stylist has released his own brand of haircare products. He used these to create the look, although other brand alternatives will achieve a similar result.

"Mist Oribe Hair Care's Thick Dry Finishing Spray onto wet hair and then blow-dry it with a round brush," he advised.

"[Then] set the hair using Velcro rollers. Once removed, use a brush to break up the curl."

Claire's exact look has a subtle volumised effect at the ends of her hair. Oribe says this can be achieved by using a spray to give texture and a heated tong for definition.

"To create a subtle lift, spritz Dry Texturising Spray at the roots. For more movement, simply use a large-barrel iron to give a bit of bend to your strands and finish by spraying Soft Dry Conditioner throughout," he added. "This keeps the volume and texture, but adds a softness and youngness to her locks."
