Zooey's Golden Globes HairAaron Light

The challenge for the Golden Globes was… how do we show off the back of Zooey’s custom Prada gown without doing an updo? Additionally, her long hair and bangs has lately become her signature and I wanted to maintain that as well. What I decided to do was create a fall or hair piece that allowed for her hair to be shorter, while keeping with her current look and accentuating the back of the dress at same time. The final look was inspired by my love for Marianne Faithfull and Brigitte Bardot– classic ’60s hair, but a bit modern and undone.
How I got the look…

Step 1  I began with an allover blowout using Orbie Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray to give the hair volume and rich shine.

Step 2  I then divided the hair (at the top of the ear across) into 2 sections. The bottom section is wrapped into flat pin curls and secured at the nape of the neck.  I then placed the fall over the bottom section and secured it with bobby pins.

Step 3  I set all of the hair (including the fall) with 2 ½ inch rollers (rolled from end to root) set with Orbie Superfine Hairspray for 35 minutes.

Step 4  After removing the rollers, I brushed out the hair, did light back combing at the crown for height and sprayed it again allover with hairspray.

Step 5  Once the back was finished, I blew out the bangs and layered pieces on the sides using texturizing spray, to give the hair movement but also a finished look.

  5. Zooey You look beautiful as usual ! I love that dress.. and you’re hair, gorgeous!

  6. Zooey you are just a precious person! I absolutely adore your quirky personality. You inspire me. Thank you!

  7. Zooey can do whatever she wants. I don’t care what anyone else says. She is so freaking precious.

  8. ooooo that explains how it went from long to short to long again! cool! I didn’t think she’d wear extensions :)

  9. Peppe: I think the idea is that her longest layers were kept up in the pin curls, and the fall (Read the paragraph before the “steps” part of the article, it uses the name “hair piece” as an alternate name for “hair fall.” It’s like a partial wig, or added hair) was used to cover them… therefore hiding the long hair away, but adding in shorter length hair kept the volume the same. Then the fall and the upper half of hair was put in rollers to create volume. Once let down, the pin curls stay hidden under all that hair, giving the look of shorter hair without having to cut. Hope this helps… I agree that the description of the steps was a bit lacking for those who don’t know much about hair. I had to sit and ponder a bit to fill in the blanks of the details :)

  10. I always love her hair!

  11. What is “the fall” what does that word even mean>?? And after the bobby pins (step 2)..you just take that all out and start all over again with rollers? confused and wanting this hair.
