Is it just us, or did Amy Adams look absolutely stunning at the 68th Annual Golden Globes this past Sunday? We love the wavy tendrils peeking out around her face – they created such a soft, feminine look. “I wanted to create a soft 20s mood, but in a different, modern way,” said hairstylist Laini Reeves of the look. “We started by changing the texture of her hair before we went on to loosely braid and roll the chignon.”
And if you’re looking to recreate the look at home? Good news, because we got a step-by-step of how Reeves styled Amy!
Reeves started by washing Amy’s hair with Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo and followed with Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner. These two products infused Amy’s hair with argan oil, keratins, fatty acids and proteins, and also controlled the hair by keeping it smooth and frizz free.
Next, Reeves applied Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream from roots to ends while Amy’s hair dried to further smooth the texture and add definition and shine. The hair was rough-dried and then air-dried, except at the roots, where Reeves used a blowdryer – this created “a modern, freer look,” Reeves said.
To create curls around the head, Reeves used a 1″ curling iron and then blended them in. After creating a side part, Reeves pulled pieces from the front to frame Amy’s faces, pinning them in an “S” shape away from the rest of the hair. She then gathered and pulled back the rest of Amy’s tresses, made a loose doubled braid, rolled it upwards and pinned it at the nape with five thick bobby pins.
The final step? Reeves released the “S”-shaped sections in the front and pinned them behind Amy’s ears “to open her face up and show off her cheekbones,” Reeves said. A quick spray of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray kept everything in place while adding tons of shine.
