Get the Look: Scarlett Johansson's Striking Updo
Recreate Scarlett Johansson's showstopping style with this step-by-step guide, courtesy of celebrity stylist Robert Vetica:
"Influenced by glamour of '40s Hollywood and the sophisticated photographs of '40s and '50s fashion photographer, Lillian Bassman, I wanted to create an updo that blended softness, movement, direction and a new sculptural shape.
To create that feeling of movement and volume, I started by blowdrying Scarlett's hair with Moroccanoil Treatment to smooth her texture and ensure shine and flexibility. I then directed the hair back and away from her face and brought it back to the nape of her neck, and then up and towards the crown.
Next, I curled small sections of hair starting at the nape of the neck and up towards the crown using a 1.5" curling iron. Once I reached the crown, I curled the hair back from her face. When I finished, Scarlett had a tight set of curls throughout her hair, all directed up and towards the crown. I then gave the curls a good spray of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to set.
To finish, I vigorously brushed the hair through, again directing it up and away from the face, up from the neck towards the crown. I then gave the whole look a well-defined backcomb to create a directional shape –- again bringing the hair up and away. Then, I gave the entire look a spray of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray. It not only holds the hair, it leaves it with a soft, movable hold which was essential to make this look work. I then attached two 1934 Flammes brooches worn as hair clips (round and baguette diamonds set in platinum) from the Van Cleef & Arpels Private Collection to round off the look by keeping the sides of her hair close to her head and to pick up the '40s vibe of her dress.
Finally, I gently brushed through the top of the hair to smooth out the curls and gave it a wave. I finished by backcombing at the root of the crown for height.. I sprayed the hair with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray again to set the look and finished with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray for natural-looking shine."
