Amy Adams' Hair for the 2013 Golden GlobesAmy Adams looked breathtaking on the Golden Globes red carpet last night. Wearing a form-fitting nude-colored Marchesa gown, her hair look, created by Laini Reeves for Moroccanoil, combined Old Hollywood and Deco references in a unique, loose, and modern way.

“It was such a special gown, off the shoulder with a beautiful flow of fabric that I definitely wanted to accent that glamorous nuance,” says Reeves.

The head-turning style featured a newtake on the classic marcel wave, with a small, loose, twisted bun placed on the side of the nape behind the waved detail. The bun was tied tight and lowand held in place with small golden bobby pins.

“I wanted to create a sense of freedom to the look so the hair didn’t look like a set. Hair on top was flatterto the forehead, with the waved detail starting 3 inches from the root. I really liked the way it fell, and kept the entire look soft.”

“The style had to emphasize shine to reflect the light, and define the detail in a silky looking way. This allowed for a lighter, messier look without appearing disheveled.”



STEP 1: Hair was shampooed with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner.

STEP 2: Reeves made a side part and brushed hair into place. “I rough dried it using my fingers, and placed a clip in the spot where I wanted the wave to start,” says Reeves.

STEP 3: Next, Reeves lightly misted Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray from roots to ends for a natural-looking shine.

STEP 4: A large crimpling iron was used to form the wave, taking two-inch vertical sections, starting at a face-flattering point alongside the corner of the eyebrow.

STEP 5: The hair was sprayed once again with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray, then brushed through with a soft bristle brush, then pulled to the lower right side of the nape.

STEP 6: After making a ponytail (held with a hair band), Reeves twisted the hair around and rolled it into a little bun supported with gold bobby pins.

STEP 7: “Once the bun was made, I could decide how loose or messy to make it. Though there are different ways I could have gone, I decided to keep it airy for a textured modern look,” says Reeves.

STEP 8: Spray the entire look with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium.
