Get Paula Patton’s hair

Tuesday, 17 January 2012

Paula Patton's lookMission Impossible star and Golden Globes presenter Paula Patton dazzled as she walked the red carpet in a vibrant strapless yellow gown and a chic, sexy hair look designed by leading celebrity stylist Robert Steinken. Her look was perfection.


‘The Monique Lhuillier gown looked beautiful on Paula, very movie star,’ says Robert Steinken. ‘As a result, I envisioned a style with the sophisticated sexiness of Brigitte Bardot, but modern and sexy without looking retro. I also gave the hair a sleek, shiny and luminous look that was soft and full of movement.

‘I parted the hair at the centre, added a bit of subtle volume at the crown, pulled the hair back close to the sides of the head, twisted it in the back and let it flow down Paula’s back in soft, cascading waves.’

How the Look was Created

‘I started with damp hair and sprayed a small amount of new MoroccanOil Frizz Control throughout the hair to balance hydration and prevent frizz.

‘Next, I used one of my favorite products, MoroccanOil Hydrating Styling Cream. It’s amazing to use because you don’t feel it in the hair and it gives a beautiful texture while softly holding a style and allowing it to move.

‘When I blow-dried the hair, I used a round medium-size MoroccanOil Ionic Ceramic Brush. I especially like its design since it holds the heat and acts almost like a roller while you blow-dry, giving a nice smooth wave to the hair. Taking 2-3 inch sections, I let the brush to stay in the hair 10-15 seconds longer to allow it to cool and set the hair.

‘Next, I used a 1-inch curling iron, starting at the root and wrapping the hair around the iron in a spiral. I held each section for 15-20 seconds, then removed and pinned the curl with a clip or bobby pin to let it cool. I lightly sprayed the set with MoroccanOil Luminous Hairspray, unpinned, and brushed the curl out, then made a center part.

‘I then backcombed the hair at the crown for height, starting 3-4 inches from the hairline. To keep the backcomb in place and to style the hair more easily without losing volume, I sprayed it with MoroccanOil Luminous Hairspray.

‘Finally, I sectioned hair behind the top of each ear and brought both sides together in the back with a twist, and pinned.

‘I sprayed MoroccanOil Luminous Hairspray on the style for hold. I love this hairspray because it allows movement. Hair can fall forward and move when Paula does. It kept the look very sexy, fluid and beautiful. It’s a unique product.

‘I finished the style with MoroccanOil Glimmer Shine Spray for an extra touch of shine.
