Winning praise wherever she goes, the star of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Daisy Ridley captivated onlookers with her effortlessly romantic look at the Shanghai, China premiere of the film. To create the look, Joico tapped celebrity hairstylist Robert Vetica, owner of the Robert Vetica Salon. Robert describes the look as “Goth Romance.” “Many books, movies, songs, paintings and sculptures fall into the gothic romance genre. It’s moody, it’s sexy, it’s feminine but not fussy, there’s elements to it that are almost Victorian,” notes Robert. “I’ve been working with her since about April of 2014, and would have to say that this was possibly one of the more regally-youthful looks we’ve done with her.”
“For tonight on Daisy, I used a curling iron because I feel it allows the look to appear more modern, and a little bit softer. I also have more control when I’m the one handling the iron as opposed to having each strand of hair be the exact same size and then walking away while the rollers form to the hair,” notes Robert. “It’s nice to be able to control the heat as well as the size and position of the curl to really customize it.”
