Get the Look: Scarlett Johansson’s Old Hollywood Updo for the Golden Globes

Golden Globe Award Presenter Scarlett Johansson looked extraordinary on the red carpet tonight. Wearing a sparkling blush-colored Elie Saab gown, her dazzling, sculpted updo was softly glamourous in a new, very modern way.

Influenced by glamour of 40’s Hollywood and the sophisticated photographs of 40’s and 50’s fashion photographer, Lillian Bassman, Vetica took red carpet hair to elegant new heights. Inspired by the flowing lightness of Scarlett Johansson’s gown, Vetica created an updo that blended softness, movement, direction and a new sculptural shape.

“To create a feeling of movement and volume at the back of the head and height at the crown I started by blowdrying her hair with Moroccanoil® Treatment to smooth her texture and ensure shine and flexibility. I directed the hair back and away from her face and brought it back to the nape of her neck, and then up and towards the crown.

Next, I curled small sections of hair starting at the nape of the neck and up towards the crown using a 1Ž2 inch curling iron. Once I reached the crown, I curled the hair back from her face.

When I finished, Scarlett had a tight set of curls throughout her hair, all directed up and towards the crown. I then gave thecurls a good spray of Moroccanoil® Luminous Hairspray to set.

To finish, I vigorously brushed the hair through, again directing it up and away from the face, up from the neck towards the crown.

I then gave the whole look a well-defined backcomb to create a directional shape –- again bringing the hair up and away. Then, I gave the entire look a spray of Moroccanoil® Luminous Hairspray. It not only holds the hair, it leaves it with a soft, movable hold which was essential to make this look work.

I then attached two 1934 Flammes brooches worn as hair clips (round and baguette diamonds set in platinum) from the Van Cleef& Arpels Private Collection to round off the look by keeping the sides of her hair close to her head and to pick up the 40’s vibe of her dress.

Finally, I gently brushed through the top of the hair to smooth out the curls and gave it a wave. I finished by backcombing at the root of the crown for height.. I sprayed the hair with Moroccanoil® Luminous Hairspray again to set the look and finished with Moroccanoil® Glimmer Shine Spray for natural-looking shine.

New from Clarins Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate

Clarins Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate

Do you believe in magic? Clarins introduces Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate; a portable magic wand that helps lines and wrinkles disappear in an instant! A favorite of Clarins Celebrity Beauty Artist, Pati Dubroff, this boosted formula corrects facial expression lines for a smoother, younger looking complexion and provides added skin firming and tightening benefits. Clarins new Line Correcting Concentrate can be applied directly to lines for instant touch-ups throughout the day. The high precision silicone tip targets the heart of the wrinkle to fill it in and smooth it away.

Instant Smooth tips from Clarins Celebrity Beauty Artist, Pati Dubroff:

A simple trick for using less foundation is mixing it with Instant Smooth. This gives skin a flawless, even tone, smoothes lines and wrinkles and helps your make-up stay on longer.
Use Instant Smooth over your foundation instead of Powder. Too much powder makes skin look dull and chalky!
To set your make-up throughout the day, apply Instant Smooth over make-up, on the t-zone and around the sides of the nose, to lessen redness, control shine and fill in lines and pores.
Use around the edges of lips to fill in lines and hold lipstick in place.
Portable for instant touch-ups on lines and wrinkles throughout the day.
For a smoother and younger looking complexion, immediately and over-time, apply the boosted formula with skincare benefits over expression lines near lips, eyes, brows and nose.
To prolong skincare benefits around the eye area, mix Instant Smooth with your eye cream to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles for more youthful looking eyes.
