THE COMELY CLAIRE DANES – Bouncy Volume all night long!

The Homeland star and Golden Globe Best Actress in a Television Series Winner was simple and sophisticated in a red dress and bouncy, voluminous, frizz free hair!

Here’s how celebrity stylist, Peter Butler, did it:

Step 1 – Prep

  • Blowdry hair with a large, round, boar bristle brush. Take a curling iron with a 1 1/2 inch barrel and start curling hair section by section. Set the curls with Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hairspray ($5.99 at drugstores).

Step 2 – Style

  • To create the perfect wave, use a paddle brush to brush through curls. Apply Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème ($5.99 at drugstores) throughout the hair–it will soften hair and add shine while leaving the curls chunky and intactStep 3 – Perfect
    • Finish by adding a fine mist of Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray to lock in the style.

PUNK-PRETTY & POLISHED – Safe Haven’s Julianne Hough

To add a little punk to her polished & pretty dress, stylist Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One Salon, relied on texture, volume and height for Julianne Hough’s Golden Globes look. Here’s the how-to 411:

Products: UNITE Blonda Shampoo ($26.25), BLONDA Condition ($28.75), 7SECONDS Condition ($26.25), EXPANDA Volume ($27.50), Pro-System 74mm Round Brush, EXPANDA Dust ($26.25), Session Max Hairspray ($29.95).

Available at Unitehair.com.

PREP

1.) Julianne’s Hair was prepped with UNITE’s  Blonda Shampoo & Condition to brighten the tone of Julianne’s blonde hair for the special event and followed with a ton of UNITE 7SECONDS Condition. UNITE 7Seconds was used to not only detangle and condition the hair, but the extreme amount helped to make the hair super clean and slippery to ensure that some hair fell out to add to the final edginess of the look.

2.) For maximum root volume, UNITE EXPANDA Volume was applied 1-3 inches from the roots.

3.) Hair was then round brushed with a UNITE Pro-System 74mm Round brush.

4.) Once hair was dry, UNITE EXPANDA Dust was sprinkled throughout the root area on the top of the head

5.) Starting in the back, Riawna used small, horizontal sections on the top of the head, backcombing the hair 1-2 inches from scalp to create instant volume. She then continued forward to the hairline leaving out the final front section. The final backcombed “mohawk” was clipped out of the way.

 

SIDES

6.) The sides were slightly teased throughout for added texture and volume.

7.) A soft, natural parting in the hair was made on both sides near the temple area.

8.) Each side was split into a top and bottom section. Each section was twisted into the back towards the nape, made into a mini ponytail and pinned.

TOP

9.) Starting with the front 3 inches of the top section, Riawna twisted the hair over towards the left and pinned in place. The second section was then alternated to twist toward the right side and pinned in place. The alternating sections continued until the top section was complete creating a “twisted mohawk”.

10.) Once hair was set in the general form, she sprinkled UNITE EXPANDA Dust on areas that still need more texture, pulled the hair slightly with fingers and rubbed together to create whispy strands

11.) The look was finished with UNITE SESSION-Max Hairspray for extra strong hold to last all evening.

12) UNITE SHINA-Mist was applied for overall red-carpet shine

 

Quotes from Riawna Capri, Nine Zero One Salon:

“Sheek, Edgy and sophisicated”

“Julianne ’s dress was so beautiful and glamorous, we wanted to add a bit of edge with the hair and makeup to give a slight contrast that created the final overall look.”
