Now that awards season is underway, here’s how you can create your very own “red-carpet” moment, using UNITE Hair:

·         Step One: While hair is damp, spray UNITE 7Seconds Conditioner ($26.25) from roots to ends and comb through.

·         Step Two: Apply a liberal amount of UNITE Blow & Set Lotion ($26.25) and work through from root to ends.

·         Step Three: Use a round brush and blow dry hair to create the initial wave. The blow dryer will activate the hold of the Blow & Set Lotion.

·         Step Four: Once hair is dry, section off the hair framing your face and create pin curls, securing with a hair clip.

·         Step Five: Using small sections, clamp a curling iron midway down the hair shaft. Roll up towards the roots. Slightly release the clamp of the iron while continuing to curl down towards the ends.

·         Step Six: After hair has been curled, release the pin curls and sprinkle a light amount of UNITE Expanda Dust ($26.25) throughout to maximize the volume. Shake hair out slightly to evenly distribute.

Get The Look: Julianne Hough at the Golden Globes 2013

Julianne Hough Golden Globes 2013

Products: UNITE Blonda Shampoo ($26.25), BLONDA Condition ($28.75), 7SECONDS Condition ($26.25), EXPANDA Volume ($27.50), Pro-System 74mm Round Brush, EXPANDA Dust ($26.25), Session Max Hairspray ($29.95).
Available at Unitehair.com.

Overview: Texture and volume were the key elements of Julianne Hough’s hair created by stylist Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One Salon.

PREP
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.

SIDES
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.

TOP
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

Quotes from Riawna Capri, Nine Zero One Salon:
“Sheek, Edgy and sophisicated”
“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.”
