Kate Hudson at the 2013 Golden Globes

Kate Hudson Golden Globes 2013

Celebrity hairstylist David Babaii created Kate Hudson’s hair look for the 2013 Golden Globes. His inspiration: “I wanted to show off Kate’s healthy, shiny hair in a style that emphasizes her true Hollywood beauty. As the perfect “Muse” and my inspiration, Kate is my generation’s Brigitte Bardot showing off soft voluptuous hair that is touchable, glamorous and now Kate’s very own signature look.”

David used IT&LY HAIRFASHION’S Purity Design Line that gives a natural, long-lasting hold which is perfect for beautiful results. David started with IT&LY’s Pure Water Drops Serum before blow drying. Next, he added IT&LY’s Pure Style Mousse Strong and used a medium round brush at the root area to add volume then switching to a large round brush to smooth and create soft rounded edges. After drying, David created a natural side part spritzing IT&LY’s Pure Volumizing Eco at the base for added lift and down the shaft for more piecey definition. For her sexy fringe he wrapped the bang area around a medium round brush spraying a small amount of IT&LY’s Pure Volumizing Eco again. With the blow dryer temperature on high, he directed heat on the brush followed by a quick blast of cool air to set. Gently he removed the brush to release the fringe. With his fingers he combed through and allowed the hair to fall naturally into place. To finish, he misted the hair with IT&LY Pure Definition Hair Spray for soft touchable hair with memory hold.

Makeup Artist Jake Bailey created Katherine McPhee’s makeup look for the 2013 Golden Globes. His beauty inspiration: “Katharine’s dress looks like it belongs in a Helmut Newton photograph, so I thought the makeup should be strong and sultry…the kind of eye makeup that would be in one of those photographs. It’s an eye look for sure – a smoky eye with a beautiful nude skin palette.”

Hair stylist Laini Reeves, for Moroccanoil, created the hair look for Amy at the 2013 Golden Globes. Her inspiration: “It was such a special gown, off the shoulder with a beautiful flow of fabric, that I definitely wanted to accent that glamorous nuance.” So, she combined Old Hollywood and Deco references in a unique, loose, and modern way.

How to Create the Look, per Laini:

“We first shampooed the hair with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner to give shiny volume without any weight.

After making a side part and brushing the hair into place, I rough dried it using my fingers, and placed a clip in the spot where I wanted the wave to start.

Next, I lightly misted Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray from root to end for a natural-looking, luminous shine that would reflect the detail of the style.

Then I used a large crimping iron to form the wave, taking 2” vertical sections, starting at a face-flattering point alongside the corner of the eyebrow.

I sprayed the rest of the hair again with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray, brushed it through with a soft bristle brush, then pulled it to the lower right side of the nape.

After making a ponytail (held with a hair band), I twisted the hair around my fingers and rolled it into a little bun supported with gold bobby pins.

Once the bun was made, I could decide how loose or messy to make it.  Though there are different ways I could have gone, I decided to keep it airy for a textured modern look.

When I finished, I sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium on the entire look for a natural-looking hold with shine. “

Salma Hayek at the 2013 Golden Globes

Salma Hayek Golden Globes 2013

Makeup Artist Jeannia Robinette created the makeup look for Salma Hayek at the 2013 Golden Globes. Her beauty inspiration: “Salma is such a knockout! Her dress was midnight blue – very sophisticated and over-the-top glamour, so we wanted to play off the dress, but keep things hip and modern with fresh makeup. The eyes are very luminescent – we lightened them up with coppers and silvery peach, then gave them depth with eggplant and plum. With a bright lip, the look was trendy, young, and modern.”
