Red Carpet Hair: Gina

 After one look at the slinky, black Badgley Mischka gown chosen by Golden Globes Best Actress Gina Rodriguez, Joico Celebrity Stylist Paul Norton knew just what to do. “The dress had such a classic, ‘old Hollywood,’ feeling, so we created romantic, shiny, classic waves that were ideal for the off-the-shoulder style of the gown.” Here’s the step-by-step…

1. On damp hair, apply JoicoJoiWhip Firm Hold Design Foam before blow-drying with a medium boar bristle brush.

2. Once the hair is completely dry, subdivide it into three large horizontal sections and, beginning at the bottom, mist each section with a thermal protectant spray. Use a 1 1⁄4-inch curling iron and working from bottom to top, curl two-inch subsections of hair, securing each one with large clips.

3. At the top section, create a deep side part and direct hair away from the face. Once all of the hair is curled and clipped, mist with Joico JoiMist Medium Styling and Finishing Spray and let hair cool. “Allowing the set to cool completely ensures that the curls will form properly,” explains Norton.

4. Once the hair is cool, remove the clips, and rake through hair with fingers to blend the curls.

5. Apply a dime-sized amount of Joico Crème Wax Texture and Shine to the palm to emulsify, then work into the hair from roots to ends, placing and molding the final wave formation. Clip waves in place with large metal clips to set.

6. Brush through opposite side of hair to create a smoother finish, securing close to the head with bobby pins.

7. Remove metal clips and mist with volumizing finishing spray.
