Sky high shags, crispy curls and lacquered locks set the tone for the hair in the ‘80s-themed Rock of Ages, but at the new film’s L.A. premiere, the stars switched out their “hair band” gelled looks for Hollywood glam. Joico International Artistic Director Damien Carney and Celebrity Colorist George Papanikolas review the red carpet and break down the looks for ROA stars Julianne Hough, Malin Ackerman, Catherine Zeta Jones and Mary J. Blige.

THE STYLE: Loose, undone texture.
GET THE LOOK: Prep hair with shampoo, conditioner and leave-in conditioner. Blow dry with a paddle brush to remove moisture and smooth the cuticle. Mist with hairspray, gather all strands loosely, twist at the nape and secure the twist in front of the crown with bobby pins. Mist once more with spray, gently loosen the topknot with fingers and release a few wispy sections around the hairline.
TIP: “Don’t worry about making it too perfect,” says Carney. “The twist should be very casual and abstract.”
THE COLOR: Perform a fast re-growth lift with Joico Base Breaker, creating pale, ivory highlights with Joico VeroLight dust Free Lightening Powder + 20 volume developer on midlengths and ends.

THE STYLE: Loose, languid textured hair with movement. The key is to keep the wave pattern irregular, which ensures that hair looks modern, not retro.
GET THE LOOK: After prepping hair, smooth and dry with a blow dryer and round brush. Divide hair into large vertical sections. Mist each section with Joico Smooth Cure Thermal Styling Protectant. Twirl sections around a large-barrel curling iron, beginning below the jaw, leaving out the ends. Release the hair and continue curling in this manner, alternating the size of the sections and the starting point of each wave to create the irregular wave pattern. Once hair cools, rake sections with fingers to loosen and stretch the curl. To finish, emulsify a few drops of styling oil in your hands and lightly smooth the surface of the hair to prevent flyaways.
