And a giveaway of L’Oreal hair products used!

 

For the Golden Globes on Sunday, hair styled into ponytails were again all the rage on the red carpet. Julianna Margulies, looked chic and stylish with her ponytail, sleek purple dress and “wow” earrings. Matthew Monzon was inspired by her Naeem Khan dress and wanted to compliment the sophisticated style with a hairstyle that was simple, fresh and young. Matthew created a polished ponytail, but punched it up with a touch of allure by adding volume and height to the top and front of her hair. The ponytail was sleek, glossy and tight to compliment and finish her classic look of the night.

Step by Step How-To:

To create a volumized ponytail, Matthew first used L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Alcohol-Free Volume Root Lifting Spray & Volume Boosting Mousse on damp hair, combing it through from root to end and blow dried Julianna’s hair with a large round brush

Once hair was dry, Matthew sectioned the hair in two parts, securing a low ponytail and leaving the front/top section of hair out

Next, Matthew added some height to the top and front of Julianna’s hair by slightly teasing it with a brush.  He then secured all of hair together to make a tight ponytail

He then took a quarters size dollop of L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Alcohol-Free Smooth & Shine Crème & Serum and smoothed over the sides and in the ponytail to ensure that all hair looked smooth and glossy

Matthew finished Julianna’s look with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold Unscented to keep hair in place throughout the night
