Recreate the Look: Lea Michele at the Golden Globes

On Sunday, red carpet season officially kicked off with the Golden Globes. Some of our favourite celebs were in attendance, and no matter where you looked, hair envy was unavoidable. From blunt textured lobs to embellished up-dos, we loved it all.

Catching our eye with her flowing brunette locks was Lea Michele; Glee-star, Scream Queen, author and singer. The 31-year-old arrived in Hollywood with perfectly side swept waves which is set to be a big trend this year, bringing 1920’s style hair glamour back with a bang. 100% glamorous, we think her Golden Globes hairstyle would be ideal for romantic dates (hello Valentine’s Day), cocktails with friends and more.

Lea called upon celebrity hair stylist Sarah Potempa for the night, who revealed all on her business’ Instagram account – @thebeachwaver. Curious to know more? Here’s how she did it.

First, you need to create a dramatic side parting. Blessed with a voluminous hair, Lea’s layers were separated into two sections to make styling easier. Go ahead and do the same, and then choose a curling wand with a 1” barrel to produce loose, full curls.

For the top layers, use a larger 1.25” barrel to create dimension. Using two different sized barrels is an easy way to prevent a look from appearing too polished, adding a natural touch. Remember, always curl away from your face when styling the top section of your hair too.

Once you’ve finished, take a paddle brush and softly brush through your hair. Top tip – the Great Lengths Large Paddle brush is perfect for this and will transform your curls into smooth waves – and don’t worry, it won’t undo the curls completely!

Afterwards, apply your preferred styling products to add shine and hold – we love the combination of the Great Lengths Soft Finish Spray and the Great Lengths Super Shine Spray.

The final step? Simply tuck one side behind your ear like Lea and pose for the cameras!
