ghd X Golden Globe Awards 2018

You are here

ghd were on hand at this year’s Golden Globe Awards to create some gorgeous red carpet looks for Margot Robbie, Jessica Biel and Saoirse Ronan.

See how to create each look below…

Margot Robbie

Hair: Celebrity Hairstylist, Bryce Scarlett

“A modern take on a classic Grace Kelly shape.”


To start, I applied serum through Margot’s wet clean hair and then added volumizing mousse at her roots. Next, using the ghd air™ hairdryer (£99) and a ghd oval dressing brush (£20); I blew her hair dry, creating a deep side part that was very smooth, sleek and straight. Once her hair was dry, I sprayed dry shampoo and then texturizing spray from roots to ends and brushed it out.

Then, I took one-inch sections and created soft waves using the ghd gold 18k styler, angling it vertically for an elongated wave. I styled to the ends of her hair going in the same direction, so that when I brushed them it would create an even-bodied wave and hug each other for a smoother look. To finish, I went over the ends with the ghd gold 18k styler for a nice, extra-sharp finish.


Jessica Biel

Hair: Celebrity Hairstylist, Adir Abergel

"To compliment Jessica’s Dior couture dress, I created a classic look with a modern edge - a luxurious low slung ponytail with a deep side part that was swept off the face.”


To start, I applied a leave-in conditioner to keep the hair soft and smooth. Before blow-drying, I set a deep side parting following the arch of the brow for precision.

I dried the hair completely smooth using the ghd air™ hairdryer (£99), pushing all the hair back and tucking it behind Jessica’s ears. Once the hair was dry, I used the ghd gold 18k styler to smooth out the cuticle and lock in the shiny texture.

To finish, I sprayed the hair with a hairspray for hold before securing the ponytail in place. The hair was accented by a black twine wrapping detail. To secure the twine, I started 6 inches below the nape of the neck, which created the faux bob effect in the front.


​Saoirse Ronan

Hair: Celebrity Hairstylist, Adir Abergel

“Saoirse’s look was all about creating a beautiful structured up-do that celebrated both feminine and masculine details with the construction. The look was slicked back with height, which created masculinity in the front and finished with a fish tail braid that was spun with silver threading. “


To start, I applied a volumizing mousse for extra lift and a heat protectant spray, for not only its protection properties, but to also add shine.

Once the hair was prepped, I set a deep side parting and began to blow-dry the hair with a round brush until completely dry. I then curled and set the hair using the ghd gold 18k styler, which helped give the hair memory and hold. Once the hair cooled, I brushed out the set and began slicking the hair back with the side parting in place using a texturizing spray.

To finish, I tightly secured the hair at the nape and did a fishtail braid. I then turned the braid upwards towards the crown and secured it in place. To bring out the femininity in this up-do, I gave the braid details by sewing in silver thread.

To recreate these looks at home use the ghd platinum styler (£165). The ghd gold styler will be launching in February – watch this space!
