Hair How-To: Claire Foy’s Strong and Sleek Golden Globes Hair

Much like this year’s powerful theme, Claire Foy’s sleek look for the evening certainly made a statement.

In contrast to the regal look she sports on her show ‘The Crown’, Claire stunned on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards in a custom-made Stella McCartney black suit. In keeping with the suit’s sharp look, celebrity

Celebrity hairstylist Jillian Halouska created a structured hair look that perfectly paired with the black tailored look.

Inspired by vintage imagery by Yves Saint Laurent and Helmut Newton, both Jillian and Claire opted for a hairstyle that had masculine tones but was still feminine. The final result was a pulled back structured look that was modern and softened with a deep side part. Here’s how she achieved this look:

PREP: The best hair looks begin with just washed clean hair. To prep the hair before drying, Jillian sprayed her damp tresses with OGX Protecting + Silk Blowout Quick Drying Thermal Spray prior to blowing out the hair for an added layer of heat protection and shine. She then blew out Claire’s hair using the portable and high powered Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer with a flat paddle brush. This kind of brush allows the hair to get an even, straight look.

STYLE: Once blown out, Jillian worked OGX Natural Finish + Aspen Extract Texture Molding Paste onto small 1-inch sections, meticulously applying product from root to tip. The application technique is similar to that of hair color application and worked incredible well for Claire’s cut. While tedious, working with small sections of hair allows for a complete saturation of product and helps achieve overall shape of the style. To ensure a uniform look and shape, Jillian used clips in the back of the hair.

FINISH: For an elegant touch, Jillian chose to part the hair on the side and swept away from the face. The final look beautifully framed her flawless skin and makeup. To ensure hold and longevity of the shape, Jillian generously sprayed the hair with OGX Smoothing + Shea Humidity Blocking Hairspray before sending her off to the red carpet.

    I would love to see more women of colour featured in the “Hair How To”. We often see stunning red carpet hair looks from women of colour and I would be interested in seeing how they are achieved. I don’t know if this feature pops up only when a hairstylist responds to a request for information, or if stylist themselves send out the info, but I would be grateful if you could consider this.
