Get Helen Mirren’s effortless style at the Golden Globes Awards

helen mirren golden globes awards 2011Who doesn’t love Helen Mirren? She is an amazing actress, and her personal philosophies are just the absolute best. I can only hope I age half as well as she has, while remaining firmly confident in my own power and beauty. At the Golden Globes Awards this year, she was stunning in her Badgley Mischka gown and glittering Chopard diamonds. Helen expressed regal confidence and her own inimitable spirit with her softly tousled short coif, styled by celebrity stylist Creighton Bowman of Exclusive Artists Management. “More than the gown and the jewels, Helen herself was my inspiration for creating her look,” says Creighton. “The idea was to translate her glamorous persona and fantastic personality into a style that shows off the real Helen Mirren.”  Here’s how Creighton worked his magic.

  • Starting on wet hair, I applied Volumea Volumizing Foam, and gave Helen’s hair a blow-out, brushing random pieces to turn out in different directions.
  • For body and height at the crown, I set the top layers in small Velcro rollers, using Finishing Hair Spray to lock in the style while keeping hair silky to the touch.
  • Next, curling hair with a one-inch-wide curling iron enhanced Melissa’s waves. Spraying sections with
    Finishing Hair Spray
    before curling helped to set curls while leaving hair soft and supple.
  • Once Helen’s makeup was applied, giving the rollers time to cool, I removed the rollers, sprayed hair with René Furterer
    Naturia Dry Shampoo
    and brushed it through. This enhanced body and fullness.
  • Last, I made a cocktail of René Furterer Styling Wax and Modeling Paste, rubbing a dab of each in the palms of my hands and lightly smoothing them over ends of hair for a sleek finish. The gorgeous result: a style that’s both beautifully natural and ultra cool—and utterly Helen Mirren.
