Get the Look: Eva Longoria Parker's Golden Globes Updo
I thought Eva's updo at Sunday's Golden Globes Awards was spot-on, so I went straight to the mastermind behind her chic chignon— celebrity stylist Ken Paves— to find out how we can recreate this look at home.
“Overall, the feeling I wanted to create for the Globes was glamour done effortlessly - beauty that is undone, untried, and truly each woman's own. There is nothing chicer than a woman who looks effortless! My inspiration was Ally McGraw from the early 70's. Sometimes, my favorite time with my clients is when they are in the fitting room, trying on their gown and their hair is just casually tossed up.", says Ken.

To achieve Eva's elegant updo, Ken began on towel-dried hair and added just a few drops of Healthy Hair Shine Serum. Then, he parted her hair down the middle and blow-dried it straight with a Mason Pearson Mixed Bristle Brush, and went over it again with a flat iron as well.
Next, Ken pulled Eva's hair low and tight and tied it with a hooked elastic band. He enhanced the glamour with more shine using the Shine Serum. Ken wanted her hair to look clean and classic but not too severe, so he left some texture around the hairline, adding the effortless aspect of the finished look.
Ken then wrapped some of her hair around the base of the ponytail for a seamless finish, and completed the look with the Healthy Hair Strong Hold Shaping Spray.
And voilà, that's it!
