Red Carpet Beauty: Jamie Lee Curtis' 2019 Golden Globes Look
At the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards on January 6, which honors the best in film and American television, actress Jamie Lee Curtis stole the red carpet in a stunning Alexander McQueen gown that matched her new hair color, which was created by celebrity stylist and FHI Heat Artistic Director Sean James.
“Jamie’s white gown was the inspiration behind her radical change of hair color, and we discussed a month prior to the Globes the idea of matching her hair color to her gown,” says James. “That’s what led to the creation of her platinum white “Ice Queen” color.”
Here, James shares his step-by-step for achieving this gorgeous color and style:
Lift existing color to a pale level 10 using Wella Blondor with 30 volume.
FHI Heat Neobond in color formula during and after to restore the bonds and ensure that the integrity of the hair is not compromised.
Use Mon Shampoing products to shampoo and condition the hair.
Towel-dry hair, then apply FHI Heat High Altitude to lift roots and deliver volume.
Blow-dry with FHI Heat Stylus 1” Blow Out Ceramic Boar Brush to create more volume.
To finish, spray hair with FHI Heat Stylus Stay Styled, a humidity-resistant dry hairspray.
Quick Tips from Sean James:
“When blow-drying the hair, go through section by section applying heat and letting it cool in the small round brush to create volume.”
“My favorite blowdryer to use is the FHI Heat Platform Nano Salon Pro 2000. Its powerful tourmaline ceramic core helps control the heat without burning, and it has a great cool button.”
“Once I’ve created the lift and shape I got into the hair, pulling, shaping and separating it with hairspray. Then I take a step back and look at it from all angles, making sure that the hair is complementary to the face.”
