Trendspotting on the 2019 Golden Globes red carpet: Bob and lob haircuts were all over the glam cams, and we’re living for this half-up look by iconic celebrity stylist and Virtue® Creative Director Adir Abergel (@hairbyadir) on the talented and beautiful actress Charlize Theron. Get the styling steps and inspiration for this look below!


Inspiration: For Charlize’s edgy and timeless style, Adir was inspired by the duality of her beautiful linear Dior gown. “The color blocking in the dress inspired me to create complimentary contrast in the hair with the half-up style played with dual textures,” notes Adir. “High shine in the back with soft texture through the front.”

Products Used



Start by prepping the hair to build a strong foundation. The night before, Adir applied Virtue® Restorative Treatment Mask to infuse strands with moisture and create the healthy foundation for Charlize’s high-shine style.


Pro Tip: Virtue’s new ColorKick™—the first-ever hair filler made from 100 percent pure, human keratin—was added to Charlize’s coloring process to boost the vibrancy of her color while enhancing and preserving the health of the hair.


To create the look, start by creating a deep side part and blow-dry using the ghd Air® Hairdryer and a Denman Brush. Then, flat-iron the hair smooth using a ghd Platinum+ Styler, working in sections for an ultra-shiny finish.


Apply Virtue® Polish Un-Frizz Cream and smooth throughout from roots to ends.


Then, clip the top side-swept section out of the way and brush the rest of the hair away from the face so it will lay flat against the neck.


Release the top side-swept section. To create a softer satin finish, apply Virtue® Texturizing Spray for touchability and movement in the front.


Next, take sections of hair from either side of the temple and secure below the crown with an elastic. Adir used a black thread and needle to bound the hair tightly.
