Oh-So-Hot Hollywood Hair

Celebrity Hairstylist and Creative Director of posh NYC Salon Chris Chase, Paul Cucinello dishes his tips on how to get Golden Globe hair at home.

Blunt Bangs

(Also seen on Olivia Wilde) “While I usually love this look, I'm not such a fan of it on Sandra. Her hair might've looked better pulled off of her face.”

Do It Yourself Technique: These look like clip-on bangs! They're a really fun way to try on a look without making the commitment. (Try HairUWear Dancing With The Stars “Bango Tango” $22.00 at Ricky's) Prep hair with a heat protectant. Create a perfectly even center part and blowdry straight. Use a flat iron to create a super-sleek effect. Clip on bangs. Finish with a light mist of shine spray (Try TRESemmé Smooth & Silky Shine Spray.)


Sleek Pony

“I think this is simple and pretty but a bit to casual for the Golden Globes.  Big, bouncy volume might have been a better choice here.”

Do It Yourself Technique: Blast hair dry with a smoothing spray and a medium sized round brush (Try Oribé Royal Blowout) Create a deep side part with a tail comb. Leaving the top section out, slick the sides back using a small, natural bristle brush and a touch of hairspray at the roots.  Gather the sides in a low, tight ponytail. Now do the same for the top, directing the section straight back. Add this section to your first ponytail with another elastic band. Forgo the usual elastics for something invisible and snag-free to keep it neat. (Try Blax Snag Free Elastics in Clear)


Side Waves

"This is what glam hair is all about for 2011. It's the perfect look for the red carpet and it never goes out of style. Love it!"

Do It Yourself Technique: Prep hair by using a shampoo for volume and keep your conditioner focused on the ends. Add a volumizing mist to the roots and evenly distribute throughout your hair. Blast 3/4 dry. Create a "C" shaped part. Then, using Hot Rollers (Try BaByliss PRO Ceramic 20 Roller Setter) Set your hair in 1 1/2" sections following the direction of your part using smaller rollers and working back in the crown with larger rollers. Allow to set until fully cooled, at least 15-30 mins. Remove rollers and brush through hair using a large paddle brush. Direct hair over one shoulder, recreate your part & apply a firm hold, brushable hairspray. (Try Sebastian Re-Shaper Hairspray)



Old Hollywood Glam
 
"I love this way of dressing up a long bob. It's elegant, classic and dramatic."

Do It Yourself Technique: Prep hair by using a shampoo for volume and keep your conditioner focused on the ends. (Try Oribé Shampoo & Conditioner for Magnificent Volume) Add a volumizing mist to the roots and evenly distribute throughout your hair. Blast 3/4 dry.  and smooth our the crown area. Create a deep side part. Using large hot rollers, take 1 1/2" sections and set your hair directing back on the top & forward on the sides. Keep the rollers focused on the ends only in the back so that the bottom stays curled under. Allow to set until fully cooled, at least 15-30 mins. Remove rollers and brush through hair using a large paddle brush. Finish with a firm holding hairspray. (Try Sebastian Shaper Fierce Hairspray)


Dramatic Bun

"I know it might seem like it's too much volume for some, but I really love how this look balances out the front of the dress and keeps your attention focused on her overall look. This is a great option for anyone with long curly hair."

Do It Yourself Technique: Prep your hair the night before the big event. Use a smoothing shampoo since you're only going to want a touch of volume but you'll still need frizz control. (Try TRESemmé Smooth & Silky Shampoo & Conditioner) Apply a generous amount of mousse for volume and control. (Try Shu Uemura Ample Angora Volumizing Light Foam) Flip your head over and dry using a diffuser.  Take a wide toothed comb and work through the roots only. Gather your hair into a high ponytail.  Tease the interior of the ponytail, leaving out some pieces for detail. Gently twist the ponytail (without compressing it too much) so you form a large bun. Tuck the ends underneath and secure the bun all the way around with bobby pins that match your haircolor. Finish with a firm holding hairspray.
