The Golden Globes 2016 Beauty Report: How To DIY Cate Blanchett’s Braided Faux-Bob
Celebrity: Cate Blanchett
Hair Stylist: Robert Vetica using Philip Kingsley products
The Scoop: As Robert Vetica explained, “The trend in red carpet hair right now is this ‘undone’ type of glamour. So there’s a mix of that, with it also being styled and having a specific direction. There’s something very vintage and retro about Cate’s dress, so to play off of that, I made sure that the hair had a little bit of texture and realness to it, while still looking very polished and being very red carpet appropriate. It’s very cool, hip and current, and Cate tends to really blaze her own trail in beauty and fashion. I think tonight’s look perfectly reflects that.”
How To DIY Cate Blanchett’s Braided Faux-Bob At The 2016 Golden Globes
- Start in the shower with the nourishing Philip Kingsley Moisture Balancing Shampoo and Conditioner.
- Section off wet hair and spritzed from root to tip with Philip Kingsley Maximizer, applying more at the roots to give hair a nice bounce and to create shiny and manageable strands.
- Continuously brush hair with a paddle brush, starting at the hair line and working all the way down to the ends, until hair is straight and the Philip Kingsley Maximizer is evenly distributed throughout.
- Dry hair with the ghd air™ hairdryer and brush with the ghd paddle brush.
- Separate hair into 3 sections and finish drying with the ghd ceramic vented radial brush size 2 to create volume.
- To eliminate frizz, smooth hair with a flat iron, as needed.
- Apply a small amount of Philip Kingsley Minimizer to the ends of the hair to eliminate any fly-aways and add a silky, smooth finish.
- Create a deep, exaggerated side part.
- Braid the remaining hair down around the back into a pretty loose but firm braid, keeping in mind that it will loosen once the look was complete.
- Once the braid is finished, pin back pieces to create a loose upso style.
- Loosen pieces around the face, top, and side of the head and pull some pieces out from the braid to create texture, using Philip Kingsley Texturizer, as needed.
- Set the Braided Faux-Bob with Philip Kingsley Weatherproof Hairspray.
