Red Carpet Recap: Deep Side Parts at the 2016 Golden Globes

January 11, 2016 admin

Deep side parts took the spotlight at the 2016 Golden Globes. Whether smooth and straight or Old Hollywood waves, strands were sleek and parts were deep.

Recreate the modern, deep side-parted retro-chic wave seen across the red carpet with these expert how-tos from our Creative Director Giovanni Vaccaro.

PRODUCT: I like Kérastase Bouffant Mousse and Frederic Fekkai’s Styling Gel. For hair texture that is thick and coarse, you’ll want to use just a little product (mousse or gel), which will help to eliminate puffiness and volume. For fine hair, you can use product more generously to get the body and texture you want.

CURL: The longer the hair, the larger the curling-iron barrel. A ¾-inch-diameter iron is typically used on long hair (past the shoulder). If hair curls easy and holds the curls, you don’t need to make them too tight. If there is a shorter piece or angle in the front, start by curling that section away from the face. After curling the front section and pinning it aside, start with one side and curl a section away from your face, following that pattern in different sections on the same row, horizontally across the head — all the way to the back. Once you’ve curled all of your hair, brush the curls out from the roots to the ends to enhance the wave pattern.

TEASE & SMOOTH: For more volume, gently tease underneath the curls to really enhance the waves, and finish with a shine spray, such as Kérastase Gloss Appeal Shine Spray.

PART: For that sexy, deep side-part, tuck the hair behind your ear on one side. Use a few bobby pins to secure hair at the nape of the neck, so it falls in front of the pins and stays intact all night.
