Sophisticate’s Blog: The Great Cate


CATE BLANCHETT
Actress Cate Blanchett is a true timeless beauty who is known for stealing the spotlight on any red carpet. Although Cate is always tressed to perfection, we’re swooning over this retro-glam-meets-modern-chic silhouette that features soft curls and sideswept bangs. Here, celebrity hairstylist Robert Vetica shares the style tips on how to recreate this stunning coif—in six easy steps!
1. First prep wet hair with a golf ball size of styling mousse, applying throughout the hair for touchable volume, shine and hold.

2. Create a low side part and blow-dry hair with a HairArt Tourmaline Dryer to leave hair smooth, shiny and well-conditioned. Using a boar bristle brush, roll hair away from the face as to not flatten strands while creating bounce. Use the styling mousse to help keep hair protected against humidity and be sure to blow-dry hair in the front to create soft bangs. Once you have created the desired shape, clip the bangs in place while they cool and then blow-dry the rest of the hair.

3. Once hair is dry, spray each two-inch section with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat Protect & Shine Spray to protect hair from heat styling. Then, using a 3/4 -inch curling iron, curl hair until midway down and continue to curl around the perimeter of the hair for 10 seconds to ensure a strong set.
4. Using a curling iron, set the ends of the hair starting at the nape of the neck. Once the hair has cooled, brush out the curls to soften the look. While brushing the hair out, backcomb the sides and the ends to ensure flexibility.
5. Next, spray tresses with a flexible hold hairspray to set the look.
6. To finish, add a layer of firm hold hairspray and use a pin underneath, so that hair stays close to the side of the head. Take fine sections of hair, backcomb and pin the other section of hair on top to cover up the pin.
