Jennifer Garner

Hair by: Celebrity Hairstylist, Adir Abergel

I pulled a lot of images of Sofia Loren, early Elizabeth Taylor where the hair was big and sexy, yet effortless. The key to the style is shiny beautiful healthy hair. We decided to go for deep side-parted hair with lots of volume, movement and bounce. I wanted to accentuate the shine and have a luxurious finish.

Tips and Technique:

To create the look, Abergel prepped the hair using Virtue® One For All 6-in-1 Styler on mid-shafts to ends and blow-dried the hair using the ghd Air® Hairdryer to create a smooth, luxurious texture. As he blew out the hair, he pinned sections into barrel curls until cooled to maximize memory and volume.

Once the curls were cooled, he gently brushed them out and used the ghd Gold® 18k styler to smooth and perfect the waves, adding more shine while also amplifying the hair’s bounce and movement. To finish the look, Abergel parted the hair into a deep side parting and sprayed Virtue® Finale Shaping Spray to keep the style in place.

Products:
  • ghd Air® Hairdryer (£99)
  • ghd Gold® 18k Styler (available in black, £139)

   
Saoirse Ronan

Minimalism, understated style, where the elegance is in the lines. I pulled references from the 90s, when glamour was about being sophisticated and effortless. We chose a high-shine choppy linear bob, parted in the centre.

Tips and Technique:

On wet, freshly-washed hair, Abergel created a centre parting and prepped the hair with Virtue® Polish Un-Frizz Cream to achieve a luxurious and satin smooth texture. Hair was blow-dried using the ghd Air® Hairdryer to lock in moisture and softness. Abergel then used the ghd Gold® 18k Styler to straighten the hair, accentuating the bluntness of her new chop and to further enhance shine. To finish, Abergel used Virtue® Finale Shaping Spray for hold.
