Get Charlize’s Golden Globe hair

Thursday, 19 January 2012

Charlize Theron at the 69th Golden GlobesBest Actress nominee Charlize Theron was a vision on the Golden Globes red carpet, wearing a spectacular pale pink Dior Gown and a stunning hair look designed by her master hair stylist Enzo Angileri.

The head-turning look was the epitome of modern, romantic glamour. ‘I wanted her hair to have a casual feeling, very soft, almost as if she had pulled it together herself,’ explained Enzo.

‘I made the most of Charlize’s natural waves, and created the style around her texture. The design itself is modern, asymmetrical, and just a little messy.

‘Charlize wore a dramatic Cartier diamond headband and when you have such an important piece of jewelry, it can become too much, almost old-fashioned, if you have slick, over-styled hair. I wanted to create an updo that combined a bohemian, romantic, and casual mood, but was strong enough for the red carpet.

How the Look Was Created

‘I started with already dry, naturally waved hair, and curled small sections with a 2-inch curling iron to enhance the volume and texture. I used the larger iron because I didn’t want to curl her hair, I wanted to refine the natural wave. This helped create an effortless transition from her natural look to red carpet.

‘Once finished, I lightly misted the curled sections with MoroccanOil Glimmer Shine. After a few minutes, I completely brushed through her hair with a MoroccanOil Ionic Ceramic Paddle brush to eliminate any trace of separation, for a natural, clean look with a romantic, soft texture.

‘Next, I swept the hair to the left and made three sections. I pulled and rolled the first two into a loose bun and pinned them, working with MoroccanOil Luminous Hairspray throughout the process to control and hold the hair in place. I released and wrapped the last section under and around the bun and pinned it. Finally, I adjusted and freed strands in the bun so it looked even more unstructured, messy, and a bit wispy.

‘I also sprayed the hair with MoroccanOil Frizz Control, the key product to making this look work and photograph well. MoroccanOil Frizz Control made any flyways disappear, gave me more control of the hair and the look of the bun, and kept everything frizz-free and in place through the evening. I then placed the Cartier diamond headband into the style.’

MoroccanOil® is sold exclusively in salons and spas.
