Connie Britton’s Hair at the 2013 Golden Globes

Any chance I have to talk about the wonder that is Connie Britton’s hair, I will take it. And, I am not the only one that adores her hair – there is even a site devoted to it – Connie Britton’s Hair.

Anyway, when I heard that one of my haircare faves, Leonor Greyl played a part in making it gorgeous for the 2013 Golden Globes, I wanted all the details!

Connie Britton Hair Golden Globes 2013

Celebrity hairstylist Rod Ortega created Connie Britton’s classic 1940’s old Hollywood look for the 2013 Golden Globes.“For Connie’s Golden Globes look tonight the inspiration was Rita Hayworth in ‘Gilda’.” To start off, Rod dampened Connie’s hair and prepped it with Leonor Greyl’s Serum de Soie Sublimateur on the ends, and then on the roots he applied Leonor Greyl’s Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice. He used both of these products together to guarantee healthy, high shine, and movable hair through the evening.

Rod then began blow drying the hair with a round boar brush, smoothing out the hair and finished drying it. Before using a heat styling tool, he recommends using Leonor Greyl’s Spray Structure Naturelle. “This setting spray is very important because it’s going to give the hold for the style.” Using a 1-inch curling iron and setting the hair with the setting spray, he let Connie’s hair cool and brushed the waves out with a large paddle brush into beautiful, shiny waves. He then secured the waves with Leonor Greyl’s Lacque Souple, a couple of pumps of the Leonor Greyl Spray Structure Naturelle… “and voila, you have a finished red carpet look!”.

Julianne Hough at the 2013 Golden Globes

Julianne Hough Golden Globes 2013

Hairstylist Riawna Capri, of Nine Zero One Salon, created Julianne Hough’s hair look for the 2013 Golden Globes. Riawna said, ““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.” – wanted her to look “Sheek, Edgy and Sophisicated”.

To get the look:


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.


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.


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

Rosario Dawson at the 2013 Golden Globes

Rosario Dawson

Celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath created the hair look for Rosario Dawson at the 2013 Golden Globes. He chose to do a voluminous wave with a subtle side part to play off the modern glam of Rosario’s Antonio Berardi dress. He tucked her hair on the right side to showcase the gorgeous Lorraine Schwartz drop earring and the beautiful cut of the neckline.

Here’s how Kylee created Rosario’s look:

1.       First, he started out by prepping damp hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse, specifically at the roots, for lightweight volume.

2.       Then, he spritzed sections from the mid shaft through the ends with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat Protect & Shine Spray.

3.       Kylee then took sections, starting at the nape of the neck, and blow-dried hair with a medium sized boar bristle round brush, mainly focusing on getting lift at the roots while smoothing out the ends.

4.       He then curled 2-inch sized sections of hair using a 1¾-inch curling iron. After removing the iron, he lightly sprayed each curl with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray and then pinned each section in place. After curling all her hair and letting it cool, he unpinned and brushed each section out with a Mason Pearson brush.

5.       To finish, he lightly teased the roots to create volume and sprayed her hair with hairspray to add sheen and to hold the look for the night.
