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!
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!”.
This season I was able to go backstage the “Badgley Mischka” show and talk to hairstylist Peter Gray, for MoroccanOil, about the look of the hair for the Fall/Winter 2012 show.
He said the look came from the movie “Metropolis”, whose lead character is a lady with a granny haircut, that is very fuzzy and she looks “demonic and crazy”. He thought that that look would work really well with the hard angles of the clothing collection that season.
This season I was able to go backstage at Joy Cioci and talk to Tommy Buckett from the Marie Robinson Salon about the look for the Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show.
He said that the look was inspired by the “girl that doesn’t care… She’s pretty sexy and kind of vulnerable, all at once”. This “loose and organic” braided hair was not affixed with any pins or elastics, and sprayed with drugstore hairspray for it’s tack and texture.
