Lupita Nyong’o’s Golden Globes 2015 Hairstyle

Lupita+Nyong+o+72nd+Annual+Golden+Globe+Awards+na9h23XF2N7lOmg what a beauty! Lupita wore a regal Giambattista Valli couture gown so we both felt this afro would complement the look perfectly. Her afro is super powerful, regal and chic. I love working with Lupita because it’s really fun coming together to figure out what her look will be. We listened to some really amazing music last night and had a blast before she was ready to walk the red carpet!

1)      I first prepped her hair with warm towels to add moisture to her natural hair. This soothes the scalp and starts to relax her before the red carpet. It also softens her curls to make them more manageable.

2)      I then applied Kerastase Elixir Ultime, L’Oreal Professionnel’s Gelee Cashmere and Leonor Greyl’s Serum de Soie Sublimateur for shine, frizz control, moisture and added texture. Girls with natural hair complain about the same things – the mix of these products gave me the texture I needed to create her look.

3)      Next, I attached extensions to her hair for added volume and body using L’Oreal Professionnel’s Texture Expert Or Graphic Modelling Gel. I then blew her hair dry to ensure that the gel was set.

4)       After attaching the extensions I cut it into this amazing shape. I then molded and pressed her hair into its shape. I wanted her hair to resemble a crown.

5)      To make sure she was red carpet ready, I sprayed her hair with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold and she was off!

Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Designed Architectural Hair At The Gotham Awards

Last night I had the honor of working on Gugu Mbatha-Raw for the Gotham Awards. What a fun night of getting ready, laughing and listening to music! She wore Calvin Klein so that clued me in to what kind of hair I needed to create – sleek, sexy and modern. I knew that the hair couldn’t be her usual girl next door look and that it had to have a certain kind of feel. I always say that hair and clothes dictate each other. They have to have some kind of continuity and flare. I love for women to look sexy and Gugu definitely looked it last night! Here’s how I created this look for her.

1)      Gugu has very curly hair so I started off by applying L’Oreal Professionnel’s Gelee Cashmere mixed withKerstase’s Elixir Ultime on damp hair for sleekness.

2)      Next, taking 1 inch sections I blow dried her hair with a flat brush because I didn’t want any lift at the scalp. By taking these sections I was able to smooth her hair effortlessly and create shine immediately.

3)      As I finished blow drying I added Aveda Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade to her hair then smoothed it with a flatiron! I LOVE SLEEK SHINY HAIR!!

4)      I wanted her to be all face so I pulled her hair to the back of the head attached a bungee to hold it in a ponytail then added 3 elastics to the ponytail to create a tiered pony. Then twisted it into this super cool architectural bun.

5)      I wanted her to be all face so I pulled all of her hair to the back of her head and wrapped a bungee to make a ponytail. I then added 3 elastics to create a tiered pony.

6)      I didn’t want her to have a typical bun, so I created a super cool architectural chignon by first twisting her ponytail. I then brought her hair up to a point and away from her head so that it projected a bit, adding bobby pins along the way to hold it in place.

7)      I finished by spraying her flyaways with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to ensure that she stayed extra smooth for the evening.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Look For the NYC Premiere Of ‘Beyond The Lights’

Gugu wore an amazing Lanvin emerald green dress with one shoulder. It reminded me of a classic Hollywood actress. I wanted to take it a step further by giving her classic #gibsongirl  hair! I only had about 45 minutes to take her from curly girl next door to red carpet goddess and I did just that. Here’s how to get her classic Hollywood chignon.

1)      I started by applying Kerastase’s Volumifique mousse to her hair for volume. I then blow dried her hair with a small round brush to smoothen her curls.

2)       After straightening her hair I parted it on the side and taking a 1 inch curling iron I curled her entire head. I then brushed it out with my Mason Pearson brush.

3)      Next, I used my marcel iron to create a marcel curl effect with the hair at her front part. I love this look because its very regal and has a 1920s feel.

4)       I pulled everything back into a low ponytail, securing it with an elastic at the nape of her neck. I then twisted her pony and rolled the twist around the elastic to form a bun.  I pinned it with bobby bins to hold everything in place.

5)      A hairdresser’s nightmare is the rain and naturally, it started to do just that so I sprayed Gugu’s hair with tons of L’Oreal Professionnel’s Infinium 3 Strong Hold Working Spray to hold her look in place.
