See below for ghd’s red carpet report from the recent Golden Globe Awards, and how to achieve their key looks…

Andra Day

Hair by: Celebrity hairstylist, Tony Medina

Andra’s current look is all about looking fresh and pretty.

Tips and techniques:
  1. First, Tony brushed through Andra’s natural curls to get the hair as soft and workable as possible. 
  2. Next, sectioning the perimeter of the hair, about two inches thick, Tony used the new ghd max styler (£179) to smooth out the roots of the hair, prepping it for her tight pony and ensuring long-lasting smoothness and shine. The wide plates allow it to quickly straighten curly hair in one pass.
  3. Then Tony pulled the hair into a tight high pony and used the ghd narrow dressing brush (£16.50) to smooth out the hair. He combed the edges and used the ghd helios professional hairdryer (£159) on the cool setting to lock the style into place.
  4. To finish the look, Tony used the ghd curve creative curl wand (£143) to accentuate Andra’s curls, pulling them apart one by one to build a full bun of loose tousled waves. Last, Tony sprayed the hair with hairspray to keep the hair in place.

 

Sarah Hyland

I wanted to show off her neckline and open shoulders, so we decided to keep the hair back.  To add some drama, we added a few inches in length and a large bouncy wave.

Tips and techniques:
  1. Start by using a blowout primer with thermal protection and blow-dry the hair using the ghd helios professional hairdryer (£159) and ghd natural bristle radial brush in size 2 (£16.50) to create a soft, bouncy blowout.
  2. To smooth the root, take larger sections of the hair using the new ghd max styler (£179; available 3/1), the wider plates allow for faster styling.
  3. To create a bouncy uniformed wave, use the ghd curve soft curl iron (£120) and curl the hair in the same direction by wrapping the hair around the barrel. After curling each section, spray the hair with a hairspray to hold the curls in place.
  4. Brush the hair with a flat brush from roots to ends creating a soft and bouncy uniformed wave.
  5. To finish the look, spray a humidity blocker from roots to mid-length to lay down flyaway strands, then pin the hair behind the ears using bobby pins.

 

Anya Taylor Joy

Hair by: Celebrity hairstylist, Gregory Russell

Tips and techniques:
  1. Starting on Anya’s damp hair, Gregory applied mousse from root to ends.
  2. Next, Gregory dried Anya’s hair using the ghd helios professional hairdryer and a round brush, creating lots of volume at the centre while blow-drying the sides and back straighter.
  3. Then, Gregory worked in two sections to give Anya soft volume. First, starting with the section of hair by the ear, Gregory curled the hair using the ghd curve soft curl iron, setting them to cool with a flat clip. Then, for the second section, Gregory used the new ghd max styler to smooth and shape the root and mid-section of the hair, leaving out the ends. The wider plates of this styler allow for faster styling and superior shine. For the ends, Gregory used the ghd curve soft curl iron, curling from the bottom up, stopping after two complete rotations.
  4. Once the curls had cooled, Gregory emulsified a pearl size amount of serum in his hands and lightly smoothed her ends and face frame. Then he brushed out the curls and sprayed hair spray all over to lock the look in. 

 

Lily Collins

Hair by: Celebrity hairstylist, Gregory Russell

Lily’s Saint Laurent dress and her newly chopped hair length inspired me to create a voluminous curly texture a la Marisa Berenson.

Tips and techniques:
  1. Starting on Lily’s damp hair, Gregory applied mousse in sections brushing through each with a detangling brush to evenly distribute the product from root to tips.
  2. Next, Gregory used the ghd helios professional hairdryer and a round brush to smooth the hair around her face and on top of her head, giving the hair a soft texture, bounce and lots of shine thanks to Aeroprecis technology.
  3. Then, in small sections, he curled the hair with the ghd curve classic curl iron, setting each curl with a flat clip after. Once the hair had cooled, Gregory removed the clips in horizontal sections and sprayed her curls with finishing spray, brushing them out for a bouncy, romantic finish.
