Jolie’s look screams old Hollywood timeless classic and takes us back to when Hollywood really had its mystic. Also a bit Elizabeth Taylor-esqe. The Versace gown was designed for a bigger than life character, perhaps?

To compliment the lavish, detailed gowns for the coming season, Redken Session Stylist Giovanni Giuntoli focused on a soft, feminine approach to the hair to spotlight the beautifully bare shoulders and detailed designs of the gowns at the Amsale, Christos and Kenneth Pool shows. When it comes to bridal hair, “Balance is key to everything,” says Giuntoli. “Just because a dress is simple or the gown is elaborate doesn’t necessarily mean the hair has to be the exact same feel. Big gowns can work with simple hair and vice versa.”

Scarlett Johansson at the Iron Man 2 premiere. Hair by Stylist David Babaii using Morocccanoil hair care products.
Scarlett Johansson’ fresh, softly textured updo, created by leading celebrity stylist David Babaii for the International Premiere of her new film Iron Man 2 looked extraordinary. A perfect complement to the flowing waves and graceful lines of her ice blue Armani Prive dress, the look emphasized a flowing cascade of smooth, well-conditioned waves pulled back into a graceful bun.
Babaii used Argan Oil-infused Moroccanoil products to create the fabulous effect. “I started with wet hair, working in Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream for gentle hold and to create a texture that was soft and smooth. With my hands, I then scrunched her hair and manipulated it to get the desired shape that I was looking for. I also used a diffuser to help shape the curls.

2. While hair is still warm, wrap two inch sections around large Velcro rollers and allow hair to cool.
3. Remove rollers and back comb each section at the root to create lift and body.
4. Use fingers to shape sections into a unique style and pin curls randomly in the back. Then spray hair with a strong-hold hairspray, like Nexxus Maxximum, to hold the look in place.
