How to: Emily Blunt at the 2013 Golden Globes by Laini Reeves for Moroccanoil


I’m a bit of a fan of Brit beauty Emily Blunt, who I’ve loved in movies as far ranging as The Devil Wears Prada and Looper. Whether she’s a fiery redhead in the former or a burnished blonde in the latter she gives great hair, and the look created for her red carpet appearance at the recent Golden Globes drew from a whole other aesthetic again.
A Golden Globe nominee for Best Actress, she wore a golden Michael Kors gown and an equally shimmering modern hair look by Laini Reeves for Moroccanoil.
Reportedly inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s elegant look in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” but dragged into the now with some very clever tweaks, it was a “minimal look that showed off her beautiful features, with simple lines and an unstructured texture with lots of shine,” stated Reeves.
Reeves created the look thus:
1. She started by shampooing the hair with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner, before applying the new Moroccanoil Volumising Mousse to give light volume and shine, and for a flexible, natural-looking hold.
2. Next, she added a small amount of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream from roots to ends, then flipped her hair over and dried it upside down. She used my fingers to separate and define strands for texture as they dried.”
3. She then pulled Emily’s hair into a high ponytail, “still using my fingers to keep the texture messy, and secured it on the crown with a hair band.”
4. She then held the ponytail out and sprayed it from base to ends with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium.
5. Twisting the hair around her fingers, “I made a loose bun held around the base with bobby pins. It was important not to make it too large or too tiny, but the right size to suit Emily’s bone structure and profile”. Once it was in place, she tweaked and pulled at the bun to create the right texture.”
6. To finish, she sprayed my comb with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium and used it to smooth the hairline.

Beautiful!
