Bridal beauty: How to get old Hollywood glamour curls, as seen on Rachel Weisz at the Golden Globes

We want beautifully soft and perfect hair that just falls into place and stays that way from the moment we get out of bed. But sadly we, like most women, spend lots of time, effort and products on creating those bouncy curls or straitening our dehydrated tresses to get that  poker straight look. But the good news is that with a little help from the experts you can quickly recreate your favourite red carpet looks at home.

At last night’s Golden Globe Awards we loved Rachel Weisz’s Old Hollywood curls – styled by Vidal Sassoon Pro Series celebrity stylist Ben Skervin. Accompanied on the red carpet by her husband Daniel Craig, Rachel looked every inch the Bond girl.

Ben and Rachel channelled the 1930s last night with sexy, sleek waves that complemented her Louis Vuitton dress. We can see this look on so many brides, as it just adds elegance to any look.

How to get the look:

Starting with damp hair, apply Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat Protect & Shine Spray and blow-dry hair straight.

Once hair is dry, tuck hair behind left ear. On that same side, take small sections and curl hair down a 1-inch barrel curling iron. After 20 seconds, remove the iron and pin the section in a roll while it cools. Repeat this process until the whole head is curled.

Then, on the untucked side, repeat the same process but with a ½-inch curling iron to give a stronger wave around the face. Once all the hair cools, remove the pinned sections and brush hair into a soft, sexy wave.

To keep hair tucked behind the ear, apply a small amount of Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Mega Firm Hold Gel.

Lastly, lightly mist with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Extra Firm Hold Hairspray to hold the style in place, leaving it with a sleek, finished look.

Doesn’t Rachel look stunning!
