Naomi Watts' Hair at the 2013 Golden Globes

Lauren Salapatek | January 14, 2013 | 11:03 AM

Golden Globes “Best Actress” nominee Naomi Watts looked stunning in a side-swept bob at the 70th Annual Golden Globes. Hair stylist Giannandrea Marongiu, who created Watts’ style, went for a more classic look. He turned to old Hollywood greats, such as Carole Lombard, for inspiration. Describing the look as “a bit more modern than old-Hollywood,” Marongiu gently brushed out Watts' curls for an updated take on a classic style.


STEP 1: Starting with wet hair, Marongiu sprayed Matrix Total Results Blonde Care Flash Filler (product available in February 2013) evenly throughout the hair before blow drying in order to “enhance and bring out Naomi’s blonde color.”

STEP 2: Marongiu then applied a volumizer throughout the roots and partially down the length to create volume and hold.

STEP 3: Using a medium round brush, he blow dried hair in sections to create soft fullness.

STEP 4: Then, he created a deep side part.

STEP 5: Using a ½-inch curling iron, Marongiu  gently sprayed a volumizing hairspray on each section before curling to gently and softly hold the curls while also providing shine.

STEP 6: Hair was brushed out so waves looked soft, feminine and modern.

STEP 7: Matrix Design Pulse Mega Dust was applied to a boar bristle brush and brushed through hair very gently in order to stretch the waves and give it texture.

STEP 8: Taking a pea-size amount of Biolage ExquisiteOil Replenishing Treatment, Marongiu gently ran his hands over the hair to tame flyaways and provide a subtle, weightless shine.

STEP 9: A rubber band was tied halfway down the length and folded up and under in order to create a faux bob. Then, hair was pinned in place at the nape of the neck.

STEP 10: Waves were shaped around the face in order to finish off the classic Hollywood look.
