Learn how to recreate Lucy Liu, Lena Dunham and Amy Adams’ red carpet ‘dos from the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
Raving about her total knockout look, Lucy Liu’s fishtail could have taken an award home for “perfect imperfection,” according to Wella Professional celebrity hairstylist Andy LeCompte. “There’s a slight messiness to balance her feminine Marie Antoinette-inspired dress. It’s best to create braids on 1 to 2 day-old hair because it’s easier to grip and create texture.
1. Prep dry hair with a primer, such as Wella Professional Velvet Amplifier.
2. Create texture with a beach spray, like Ocean Spritz, at the root and length of hair.
3. Make a deep side part, and French-braid the hair donw each side of the head so that the two braids merge at the bottom, slightly to the side, letting the braid hang over the shoulder.
4. Placing one braid over the other, flip the ends of the hair through the hole created by the intersecting braids.
5. Merge the two braids into one fishtail at the bottom, and add texture with Rugged Fix on the ends.
6. Finish the look with Stay Essential for strong, flexible hold.
Inspired by Jean Seberg, Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick, here’s how hairstylist Rheanne White fixed Dunham’s pixie for a modern look.
1. Apply a texturizer, such as Kevin.Murphy White. Gravity to damp hair before drying in the product, which
helps hold the style while yielding bigger, thicker hair.
2. Piece out smaller sections with an anti-frizz crème, such as Easy.Rider for flexible hold.
3. Finish the edges with a matte paste with medium hold, such as Sticky.Business
4. Lastly, spray on a weightless hairspray, such as Session.Spray to make the look last all night.
The Best Supporting Actress Nominee held her head up high with hair inspired by Old Hollywood and Art Deco, styled by Laini Reeves for Moroccanoil. The classic marcel wave was interpreted to create a small, loose twisted bun on the side of the nape behind the waved detail. “I wanted to create a sense of freedom so the hair didn’t look like a set … The style had to emphasize shine to reflect the light, and define the detail in a silky looking way. This allowed for a lighter, messier look without appearing disheveled,” says Reeves.
1. To start with shiny, weightless volume, use a shampoo such as Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner.
2. Create a side part and brush hair into place. Dry hair using fingers and place a clip in the spot where the wave should start.
3. Mist hair from root to end with a shine spray, such as Glimmer Shine Spray. This will give hair a natural-looking, luminous shine.
4. Take a large crimping iron to 2-inch vertical sections of the hair to form the wave, starting at a face-flattering point alongside the corner of the eyebrow.
5. Spray the rest of the hair with shine spray and brush through with a soft bristle brush, pulling hair to the lower right side of the nape.
6. Secure hair into a ponytail, and twist hair around fingers to roll it into a little bun, and pin into place. Keep the bun loose and messy for a textured modern look.
7. Finish the style with Luminous Hairspray Medium and to lock in shine.
