The Hair Tutorial: First, on the wet hair Renato created a side part, to add softness to the look. He then sprayed the Fekkai Coiff Perfecteur Anti-Frizz Silkening Crème before blow drying the hair. He used a 1 inch curling to create the soft waves. Because Seyfried has beautiful long hair, he separated the hair into two sections before pulling both into a chignon.

I started off on her air-dried hair, and sprayed my Ken Paves Volumizing Spray ($22: Ulta) all over, and began curling it with my 1 inch curling iron (Ken Paves Curling Iron, $60: Ulta) to give the hair some bend.

Award-Winning Hair Color

Celebrity Haircolorist Lorri Goddard-Clark recommends: “Before coloring your hair for the big day, make sure you have had your hair freshly cut – this allows your highlights to look like the sun kissed your hair. Always mark your favorite part (side, middle, center, etc.) before highlighting and when applying the color, keep highlights finer near your scalp and heavier at the ends for a more natural appearance. This is sure to keep color bright and vibrant!”

Kate Winslet at the 2010 Golden Globes

GET THE LOOK: Frederic Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Renato Campora created a sexy undone chignon for Kate Winslet for the 67th Golden Globe Awards. The Look & Inspiration: Renato’s inspiration was a glamorous woman leaving her hotel room in a rush. He created a sexy, low chignon with an undone feel and lots of texture.

Here’s Renato’s hair tutorial on how to get Kate Winslet hairdo:

On wet hair Renato applied FEKKAI COIFF STRONG HOLD VOLUME MOUSSE mixed with FEKKAI ADVANCED BRILLIANT GLOSSING CREAM. These two products together provide the right balance to create a texture that leaves the hair hydrated. With the hair still wet, he created a side part and placed pins curls throughout the entire head and dried the hair with a diffuser. Once the hair was 80 percent dry, he removed the pin curls. Renato used his fingers to produce texture and finished drying the hair with the diffuser. He then applied FEKKAI Salon Technician Color Care Anti-Fade Top Coat throughout the hair for shine. Next, he softened the ends by using a curling iron. He then applied the FEKKAI Au Naturel Dry Shampoo all over the head to give the final look some modernity and volume.
