Golden Globes: Christina Hendricks.

Christina Hendricks, best known for her role as the sexy secretary Joan Harris in hit drama, Mad Men, rocked a Romona Keveza gown and bouncy curls courtesy of stylist Jen Atkin for Sebastian Professional at this years Golden Globe awards.

“Her dress had a rich vintage feel to it and this gorgeous accent on the shoulder that resembled a flower. Instead of putting her hair up, we opted to give it a modern twist and keep the hair bouncy and down,” says stylist Jen Atkin for Sebastian Professional. “This style is great for cocktail parties, or to dress up a look.”

To achieve Christina’s modern take on a vintage 70’s-inspired ‘do, follow Jen’s tips:

1. Begin by applying Sebastian Professional Mousse Forte at the roots on damp hair.

2. Next, blowdry the hair using a Mason Pearson brush with your head upside down. Once hair is 75 percent dry, flip your head back over and curl the ends under using a round brush.

3. Spray Sebastian Professional Shaper Zero Gravity hairspray all over the hair, and brush it thru to create a base to hold the waves.

4. Using a 1" curling iron, wrap 1" sections in a clockwise direction and pin the curls. Once the curls are set, let it cool for 15 minutes (cool for 5-10 minutes if you have thick hair).

5. Unpin the hair and brush out the curls using a boar bristle brush. Set the part and stretch out the bangs using a flat iron to get a smoother look toward the front of your face.

6. Finish the look with Sebastian Professional Shaper Fierce hairspray.

After the powder is set, I dusted on mark Bronze Pro Powder in Pro Glow using the angled contour face brush. I applied this bronzer to her cheeks, forehead and chin. Then I added a powder blush, I dusted mark Good Glowing Blush in After Glo on her cheeks by using the angled contour face brush.”

“I applied I-mark eyehadow in Biscotti using the all over eyeshadow brush to her inner eyelid.  Then, using the eyeshadow brush, I applied I-mark eyeshadow in Gioia to her middle and outer eyelid, from the lashline to her crease.  I used the angled contour eyeshadow brush to blend Gioia into the crease of the eyelid.  As a liner, I applied I-mark eyeshadow in Java along the upper lashline using the hookup eyeliner brush. I smudged Gioia along the bottom lashline using the hookup eyeliner brush. To finish the eyes, I used two coats of mark Lash Splash Mascara in Black.”

Golden Globes Beauty: Dianna Agron.

Pantene Celebrity Stylist Danilo styled Dianna Agron’s hair for the Golden Globes. This was Danilo’s first time working with Dianna, who he called a “total sweetheart.” Congrats to Dianna for Glee’s win for Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical!

See a complete step-by-step below on how to get this show stopping look.

Danilo and Dianna decided on a half-up glamour set to complement her strapless J. Mendel dress. “When you style hair for the red carpet you have to take into account that it must look good from every angle,” said Danilo. “I wanted her hair to have the ability to be undone, have movement, and be shiny, but didn’t want her to worry about it all night which is why a half-up style was the perfect choice.” Although she was out the door before he knew it, Danilo thought of the style – “It was very simple, very pretty hair that was clean, contemporary Hollywood glamour.”

Here’s how to re-create Dianna’s hairstyle:

1)      Start with freshly-washed, towel-dried hair so it’s clean for styling.

2)      Mist your hair with the Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Heat Protection & Shine Spray for a conditioning base, and then spray the Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Root Lifter Spray Gel on your roots to prep hair for volume on top.

3)      Blow dry your hair, then use a dollop of the Pantene Pro-V Restore Beautiful Lengths Smoothing Balm to coat each section of hair before applying heat from the iron.

4)      Using a medium-to-large curling iron for the glamour set, curl hair down and under before setting to cool.

5)      Once hair has cooled in the set (10-15 minutes), release the curls and brush through to reveal voluminous waves.

6)      Lightly spread more of the Smoothing Balm through your waves as needed to clean up the slides and tame fly-aways.

7)      Part your hair to the side of your preference, smoothing hair back on each side with your fingers, and pin back with your hair pieces.

8)      Pull the remaining hair forward, shaping hair to appear full out of the hair pieces so the waves fall in front of your shoulders for a soft, elegant look. 

9)      Use a finishing spray like the Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Professional Level Style Shaping Hairspray on the front and sides of hair to lock in loose curls. Leave the back curls alone so they keep their flowing movement.

Her makeup was applied by Celebrity Makeup Artist Angela Levin.

Beauty Inspiration:
"Dianna's look was all about a bold, dark lip to offset her gorgeous white dress!"

Beauty Tip:
"I prepped Dianna’s skin with CHANEL Ultra Correction Line Repair Concentrate, and her base was Clea de Peau Foundation in shade 010.  I defined her brows with CHANEL Precision Brow Definer in Blond Clair.  On her lids, I used the CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Khaki-Clair, and Shiseido Dark Brown Tint Liner to line the eyes. I then applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir. To complete the look, I lined her lips with Bobbi Brown Lip Liner in Henna, and applied CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in
Ballet Russe.”
