“Little Women” star Saoirse Ronan proves that sometimes, simple is all you need to make a bold statement. The Irish-American actress looked mesmerizing on the red carpet at the 2020 Golden Globes with her vintage-inspired blowout by celebrity hairdresser Adir Abergel (@hairbyadir). Looking to give your clients a similar look? Get the how-to steps below!


Style Note: “[I was inspired by] ’70s glamour icons, specifically Julie Christie’s iconic hair from one of my favorite movies, ‘Shampoo’,” says Adir. “I wanted to create soft, touchable volume starting at the crown and polished rolled ends. Together, they embody such an iconic retro glam feel.”

Apply Virtue® Volumizing Primer and Virtue® Volumizing Mousse to the roots and lightly through the midshaft for volume.


Rough dry the hair using the cool setting until strands are at least 80 percent dry.


Round brush the hair and set it in rollers immediately. Once the hair has cooled, remove the rollers.


Brush out the curls and then use a 1.5-inch Marcel iron to create a subtle wave along the face frame. 


Flat iron the ends under for a slight bend and run a few drops of Virtue® Healing Oil through the hair.
