3 How-Tos For That Red-Carpet Shine

Award season is in full swing and your favorite stars aren’t the only ones shining bright on the red carpet—check out that hair! Fuel Frizz-Free Shine Mist made its Hollywood debut for the Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Style Lounge and OF COURSE BTC got the scoop. Courtesy of Fuel Educators Steven Ernewein and Ashley Deubel, here are some of their favorite Golden Globe looks recreated below!

1. Prep damp hair with Fuel Volume Foam and Sea Salt Mist. Then towel dry the hair completely.


2. Use a Pro Flat Iron to create waves away from the face and add Texture Powder. Create a deep side part and Spray Fuel Frizz-Free Shine Mist throughout to help minimize frizz and static while styling.


3. Divide the hair into 2 sections—as if you were going to put it into pigtails—and clip one of the sides out of the way. With the other section, begin twisting towards the center.


4. As you twist, start pinning, wherever you’d like from about the occipital bone down, depending on the amount of hair. Once you reach the end of that section, tuck it in behind an area you’ve already pinned so it is not exposed.


5. Repeat for side 2.


6. Once set, take your boar bristle brush and gently smooth out any areas in need, concealing a possible part in the back from sectioning if necessary.


7. Once everything is set, finish the look by spraying with Fuel Lock-In Hair Spray to maintain the style all day!

1. Start by making sure the ends of your client’s hair has a slight curl—it will help when forming and pinning the shape. Then spray the hair with Foundation Hairspray.


2. Next, determine your parting. On the lighter side, continue to the nape area (not going above the occipital) and smooth hair into a ponytail in the opposite back corner. Remove unwanted hair. If there is leftover length available, use it to help form and begin the triangular shape you are looking for.


3. On the heavy side of the parting, section the hair leaving enough above the ear and leaving out the front hairline. This section will be teased and created into a form using the same technique as in Step 2. Extend and connect this shape with the form you created in the back. Use hair pins to secure and form shape.


Let down remaining top section and smooth over the form, secure with bobby pins underneath. Extend and pin the hair in front of the ear into the back. You can use the pony-tailed hair at the nape for a secure base to pin your bobby pins into. By extending the hair, you will create a more polished and seamless look. Finish with Lock-In Hair Spray and Frizz-Free Shine Mist.

1. Determine your part. On the lighter side extending into the nape, pull the hair to the opposite side and pin it to the head.


2. Take a section in the center back, smooth and pull down to the lower nape and begin to twist the hair in a upward motion to start forming desired shape. (Pin inside of the twist to avoid any visible bobby pins.)


3. On the heavy side of the part, build the desired height to the head and facial shape. Gently bring all the hair to back of your client’s head and begin to twist in the same way as you did in Step 2. Be careful not to alter the shape you previously built in the front. Place where desired and pin securely. If you are working with a lot of hair, split this section in two. Finish with Lock-In Hair Spray and Frizz-Free Shine Mist.
