Golden Globes: How to re-create Charlize Theron’s half-up style

no comments

In the second of our red carpet round-ups, we look at how to style Charlize Theron’s Golden Globe Awards look.

Celebrity Hairstylist Adir Abergel created Charlize’s edgy and timeless style. He was inspired by the duality of her beautiful linear Dior gown.

He said: “The colour blocking in the dress inspired me to create complimentary contrast in the hair with the half up style. I played with dual textures: high shine in the back with soft texture through the front.”

Recreate the Charlize Theron look

To create the look, Abergel began by creating a deep side part and using the ghd air® hairdryer to blow dry with a brush.

Then, using the ghd platinum+ styler, Abergel flat ironed Charlize’s hair in sections for a shiny finish. Abergel followed with a de-frizzing cream, smoothing throughout from roots to ends. He clipped the top side-swept section away from the rest of the hair and brushed the remainder of Charlize’s hair away from the face so it would lay flat against her neck.

Then to complete the style, Abergel took sections of hair from either side of the temple and secured it below the crown with an elastic. The hair was bound tightly with a black thread and needle. To lock in the look, Abergel generously spritzed hairspray for perfect hold and memory.
