Keri Russell’s textured tresses

Keri Russell's hair stylist and make-up artist have spoken about creating her red carpet looks.

The 38-year-old actress looked stunning at the premiere of her latest film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in New York earlier this week. She showed off her svelte physique in a lacy black top and black harem pants.

However, all attention was on Keri's tousled brown hair, which expert Brian Magallones tended to ahead of the event.

To create the finished look Brian cut two-and-a-half inches off for a more "shaggy" 'do.

"The look I wanted to give her was all about texture," he told He blow dried her hair straight and added gloss, before using a half inch barrel curling iron and alternating the direction of the curls.

Brian then brushed the ringlets out, before adding hair spray so it didn't go "fluffy". "Which is not a good word, right?" he laughed.

Tina Turnbow was in charge if Keri's beautiful make-up, giving the actress a smoky purple finish. The cosmetics specialist used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Vice, before smudging the eyeliner out and adding a spot of added Votre Vu eye shadow from the Violette palette.

Keri and Tina have a close relationship and the filmstar trusts the artist when it comes to her beauty looks.

"Being Keri Russell's make-up artist has its perks - like being able to spend quality glam time with the lovely and talented actress," Tina recently explained on Refinery29.

In return, Keri has learnt a lot from Lisa and relies on the make-up expert.

"I don't think I ever consider my skin to be glowing. Tina Turnbow is the product I use to achieve that look," she laughed.
