We asked you, our NewBeauty readers, to tell us which celebrity had the best red carpet beauty look at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards. Your response? Salma Hayek.
That’s why we reached out to celebrity hairstylist Robert Vetica to find out just how he created Hayek’s gorgeous, flowing waves that had everyone gushing.
First, he says he added extensions to lengthen the starlet’s hair and add to the “noir feeling” of her look. Then he blew out her strands using a large round brush to create volume.
Next, he curled two-inch sections of hair with a half-inch thick curling iron, making sure the curl was turned away from her face. He also noted, “Because of the length [of her hair], I wanted the curl to be a bit tighter, knowing that when I finished, the curl would drop into a loose wave.”
Last, he brushed out the curls and teased the roots to maintain the volume. After loosening up the waves with his fingers, he finished the look with hairspray to hold it in place.
