Get The Look: Jessica Chastain’s Critics’ Choice Awards Loose Braid

Get The Look Jessica Chastain's Critics’ Choice Awards Loose Braid

Celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora worked with Jessica Chastain for the 2015 Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on Thursday (January 15) in LA.

“The inspiration for Jessica’s hair at the Critics’ Choice Awards came from the beautiful dress. Once I saw the high neckline, I knew we wanted to show that off. Working with the silhouette, I decided to pull the hair off of the face and create a beautiful loose braid in the back. The result was a modern shape that really complemented the whole look,” said Renato.

Here’s how to get the look.

On wet hair, he applied Kerastase Mousse Volumactive and then blew it dry with a large round brush. He wanted the hair to be smooth and shiny.

Next he separated the hair and pulled the top section into a rubber band, wrapping some of the hair around the band. At this point, half of the hair was up and half was down. Then he took about an inch section of hair from below each ear and brought them together. He used a very small rubber band to hold this in place.

Then he created a simple loose braid in the back to keep the look soft. Securing the end with a small rubber band, he finished with Wella Finishing Hairspray.

Get The Look: Jessica Chastain’s Ultra Glamorous Golden Globe Awards Waves

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsThere was no denying that Jessica Chastain looked like a classic Hollywood bombshell at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. While her stunning figure-framing draped gown and sultry makeup noted the style of vintage Hollywood beauties, it was her perfectly polished waves that made this look extra glamorous.

Celebrity Hairstylist Renato Campora drew inspiration from the vintage silhouette of Jessica’s Atelier Versace gown and created a look that took an elegant spin on the iconic side swept loose curled hairstyle. Here’s how you can achieve this ultra glam look at home:

Renato recommends starting with freshly washed and conditioned hair. To ensure an evenly hydrated and nourished foundation, she used Wella Professionals Elements Renewing Shampoo and Daily Renewing Conditioner.

Like any glamorous hairstyle, smooth lustrous hair is a must. Prior to blow drying, Renato applied Wella Professionals Elastic Energy Mousse to damp hair and proceed to brow dry small sections with a round brush.

Once hair was evenly blow dried, Renato used a 1.5 inch curling iron and concentrated on creating voluminous curls at the bottom half her hair. To further enhance the smoothness of the hair, Wella Professionals LuxeOil Light Oil Keratin Protection Spray was applied to the top of the head to keep any fly-aways at bay.

To achieve that super glamorous sheen, a little bit of Wella Professionals Smooth Brilliance Shine Pomade was blended on the fingertips and applied it to the front of Jessica’s hair. As the finishing touch, Renato misted the air with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray.

Get The Look: Felicity Jones’ Sophisticated Golden Globe Awards Updo

Get The Look Felicity Jones’  Sophisticated Golden Globe Awards Updo

With all the embellishment and glitz seen on Sunday evening’s 2015 Golden Globe Awards red carpet, Felicity Jones’s elegant Dior gown was a welcomed change.

The English actress brought a touch of her English sophistication to the ceremony and popped in the deep green dress. With such a graceful look, it was only natural that celebrity hair stylist Tommy Buckett create an equally fitting updo for the petite actress.

Using an array of Garnier and T3 products, here’s how you can recreate this simple and chic hairstyle:

PREP: Once hair was washed and conditioned, Tommy prepped Felicity’s hair with Garnier Brazilian Smooth Flatiron Express. He then sectioned the hair and blew it out with a T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Dryer using a T3 Anti-Gravity 2.5” Barrel Brush.

STYLE (PREP): After the hair was blown out, Tommy spritzed her entire hair with an even coat of Garnier Sleek & Shine Iron Perfector Straightening Mist. He then flat ironed Felicity’s hair suing the T3 SinglePass Straightening Iron.

STYLE (UPDO): Once hair was straightened, Tommy back-combed the crown of her hair and created a deep side part. He then gathered the hair into a low ponytail at the nape of her neck. To ensure smooth and healthy looking hair free of flyaways, he applied a small amount of Garnier Fructis Marvelous Oil Deep Nourish at the tips of her hair. Once applied, Tommy arranged the ponytail into a knot and secured with bobby pins.

As a final touch, Tommy sprayed Jones’s hair with Garnier Sleek & Shine Finish 5-in-1 Serum Spray. Not only did this give the hair a soft sheen but kept it in place for the duration of the evening.

Tommy proved that one does not need to go above and beyond with hair on the red carpet. Choosing a simple and elegant hairstyle can speak volumes in formal settings.

“Inspired by America’s vintage Valentino dress, we went with a modern classic, the smokey eye and beige lip. It was a fresh complement to the sophisticated little black dress,” Linda said of her beauty inspiration.

Here’s how to get the look.

Linda kept the skin very sheer using Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight to add radiance. She also used Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate for a bit of contour. She then added a splash of blush on the apples of the cheeks using Armani Blush #506.

Next she used Charlotte Tilbury Black Eye Pencil to line the top lid and inside the water line on the bottom lid, blending the pencil line using the darkest shade from the YSL Palette #4. She then used the mid-tone shades of the palette to blend up and away. Linda also used the highlighter shade just under the brow and inside corner of the eye. Under the eye she applied a soft line of the medium shade, followed by heavy layers of L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara.

Linda finished with a nude lip to contrast the eye, using NARS Chubby Lip Pencil in Buenos Aires.
