Hair how to: Gaga, Charlize and ghd at the 76th Annual Golden Globes

At yesterday’s 76th Annual Golden Globes event, the hair and beauty looks served up by the stars in attendance were definitely more hit than miss, with two stand out looks created by ghd ambassadors and celebrity stylists Frederic Aspiras and Adir Abergel.
Lady Gaga’s periwinkle blue locks were the work of Aspiras, and gave a definitely aristocratic vibe. The stylist says, “Gaga wanted to feel like herself for the Golden Globes. I was inspired by the incredible blue colour of her Valentino dress, and chose a sleek style to complement it.”
To create the look, he combed through the hair with the ghd detangling comb, then used a ghd natural bristle radial brush size 1 and trusty ghd air hairdryer to prep the hair. “I then ran the ghd platinum+ styler throughout the hair to create a smooth finish,” says, before spraying a smoothing serum throughout and using the ghd oval dressing brush to sweep the hair up into ponytail. “I wrapped and twisted the hair into a half bun, leaving the end of the hair out and parted to each side of her head. I then wrapped the ends of the hair around the ghd curve soft curl tong to create long lasting curl. I finished by spraying hairspray.” 
Charlize Theron’s sleek style was totally her, and created in collaboration with Abergel. For the statuesque star’s edgy and timeless style, the stylist was inspired by the duality of her beautiful linear Dior gown. Abergel notes, “The colour blocking in the dress inspired me to create complimentary contrast in the hair with the half up style.  I played with dual textures; high shine in the back with soft texture through the front.” 
To create the look, Abergel began by creating a deep side part and using the ghd air® hairdryer to blow dry with a brush. Then, using the ghd platinum+ styler, he flat ironed Charlize’s hair in sections for a shiny finish. This was followed by the application of a de-frizzing cream, smoothing throughout from roots to ends. He then clipped the top side-swept section away from the rest of the hair and brushed the remainder of Charlize’s hair away from the face so it would lay flat against her neck. 
To complete the style, Abergel took sections of hair from either side of the temple and secured it below the crown with an elastic. The hair was bound tightly with a black thread and needle. To lock in the look, Abergel generously spritzed hairspray for perfect hold and memory.
