Ukrainian-born actress Olga Kurylenko (born November 14, 1979) recently dazzled on the Red Carpet for the premiere of "The November Man" starring Pierce Brosnan.

Olga Kurylenko's hair was colored a rich hue of cinnamon which perfectly harmonized with her Michael Van Der Ham navy blue dress encrusted with crystals.

The actress had her shoulder length hair wrapped into a sleek mid-back cinnamon style hair twist.  Olga's haistyle won the Red Carpet premiere show held at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California.

Full Frontal Fringe With Slightly Uneven Part

Her stunning face was framed by a full fringe of light and dark cinnamon and cherry tresses.

The fringe was a little choppy with a hint of separation near one side of the forehead, which added to its charm.

Olga's hair was parted in a slightly uneven part right behind the fringe. A few loose strands escaped from both sides and formed a sexy accent.

All of Olga Kurylenko's hair was smoothed back toward the top of the crown. It was then gathered into a ponytail with a mid back base before being twisted into a polished cinnamon style bun.

How To Copy Olga Kurylenko's Hair

Olga's November Man hairstyle was a combination of a full edgy fringe, two side hair wisps and a mid-based pony wrapped into a polished cinnamon roll shape.

Follow the steps below to copy Olga's stunning hairstyle:


1. Wet cleanse detangle hair in lukewarm water with the appropriate cleansing product (diluted shampoo, conditioner only wash, water only, or a color-maintenance cleanser).

2. Rinse well, do a light accordion squeeze.  Apply a rinse out conditioner compatible with your hair's type, texture and condition.  Separate hair into sections and detangle in the shower with fingers or wide tooth comb.

3. When hair is completely detangled, rinse well, finishing with a cool/cold water rinse.

4. Towel blot to remove excess water.

5. Apply a styling cocktail, including, but not limited to a defrisant cream and/or spray, root lift product and a styling mousse or cream.

Note: If you prefer a more textured look, dry cleanse hair instead of wet cleansing it. Use a dry shampoo or your own DIY hair powder such as cornstarch, cocoa or cornstarch mixed with cinnamon powder.

1. Use a tail comb on damp strands to create a vertical part from ear to ear.  Separate out fringe area and dry with fingers or a large round brush and a blow dryer.

2. Separate the rest of the hair into 2" sections and dry hair straight with a blow dryer and a paddle or round brush.

3. When hair is 100% dry, run a hot flat iron through the entire head, except the fringe area, to create a polished finish.

4. Using fingers and/or brush direct all of the hair behind the ear-t0-ear part up and towards the crown area of the head.  Use tail of comb to separate out a few loose strands around the ears.

5. Gather all of the hair directed towards the back of the head into a ponytail with a base positioned at the middle of the back of the head.

Note: For more lift along the crown, back comb or brush a section of hair immediately adjacent to the back of the head and smooth lightly with fingers to add some fullness before you create your ponytail.

6. Secure the ponytail base with a hair friendly elastic.

7. Smooth the ponytail with a brush or fingers.

8. Spritz pony lightly with some hairspray to keep it smooth and help give the twist some grip.

9. Light the ponytail by the end up into the air and twist in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction until the pony is tightly twisted.

10. Wrap the twisted pony up and over the base until all of the hair has been twisted around the base into a cinnamon roll shape. You can either position the bun so it sits flat against the scalp or you can allow it to puff out a bit. The option is yours.

11. Use fingers to gently arrange the bun. Pin the end of the tail securely inside the bun. Use a few extra bobby pins to secure the perimeter of the shape.


Once the hair twist is positioned and pinned to your specifications, apply a few blasts of hairspray to the palms of your hands and light brush over the finished twist.

Check the fringe and loose strands on either side of the face.  If you wish, you can lightly curl them with a large barrel curling iron to give them a more polished finish.

Apply a tiny bit of hair spray to fingers and light swipe over the fringe and loose hairline strands.

Tuck a few extra bobby pins into your handbag in case the originals pop out before you get back home.  A travel sized hairspray would be great to tuck into your handbag in case you encounter unfriendly weather conditions.

Summary - Olga Kurylenko's Hair

Former Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko;s hair was beautifully styled into a simple but elegant cinnamon hair twist positioned at the md-back of her gorgeous head.

Known best for her role as Camille Montes, a Bond Girl in the movie "Quantum of Solace", Olga was the first Bond Girl from a post-Soviet country, making her a controversial figure for some Eastern European groups.

I personally loved Olga Kurylenko as the Ebony tressed Vera Evans in the short-lived Magic City on Starz. Her tresses were stunning on that well-done TV series.

While Olga may be famous for being the first Bond Girl in the Ukraine, she is also gaining new fans for her stunning hair hues, lengths and array of hairstyles she's been recently showcasing on fashion and movie runways around the Globe.
