Lily Collins’ hair made a modern princess statement at the 74th Golden Globes Awards.
Gregory was inspired by Lily Collins’ beautiful beaded Zuhair Murad gown to create a voluminous textured updo with braided details.
This gown was one of my favorites seen on the red carpet. It is certainly inspiring and princess worthy. Zuhair Murad’s gowns are always amazing and his Spring / Summer 2016 collection was incredible. You can see similar gowns to the one worn by Lily Collins in this gorgeous collection.
How to Recreate Lily Collins’ Golden Globes Updo
Gregory Russell was kind enough to give The Awesome Muse step-by-step instructions on how to get Lily’s look. It looks complicated, but he breaks it down to make it easy to recreate! Be sure to check out the great products from John Frieda to help make it easier to create and hold this hair style.
To start, apply a golf ball sized amount of John Frieda Luxurious Volume Perfectly Full Mousse on the roots for lasting volume, and then another golf ball sized amount to the lengths of the hair for body.
Then, brush through and begin blowing the hair out with a multi-bristle brush and setting the “mohawk” section on velcro rollers. Secure each section with a duckbill clip.
Then, curl the mohawk section away from the face and fasten each curl with a duckbill clip.
While the hair cools, spray the roots with the new John Frieda Luxurious Volume – Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo to add lift and texture.
Add a pearl sized amount of John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Creme to the remaining hair and secure it with a bungee hair tie at the crown of the head.
Then, work through the lengths to define and pin the curls up to create a voluminous messy bun.
Take selected pieces from the perimeter and pin back, leaving some wispy face framing pieces out.
Braid the remaining hair into a fishtail pulling it slightly apart for texture and shape. Fasten it around the bun with hair pins.
Finally, spray John Frieda Luxurious Volume Forever Full Hairspray to lock in the style.
