Katie Holmes At The Golden Globe Awards — Classy & Sleek Hairstyle
Hairstylist DJ Quintero was inspired by Katie’s strapless Marchesa dress and wanted to go with something that was modern and simple! Since she wasn’t wearing any jewelry, DJ decided to go with a deep-parted, side ponytail to “compliment her striking features and elegant, bare neckline.” The result was absolutely perfect and we are loving this look!
Below we have a step-by-step guide on how to achieve this classic hairstyle, so you can look just as amazing!
“STEP 1: Katie had just arrived from the beach, so DJ treated her dry hair with a boost of hydrating Alterna Haircare Bamboo Smooth Pure Kendi Treatment Oil ($25), letting it soak for 10 minutes.
STEP 2: DJ washed Katie’s hair with Alterna Haircare Caviar Replenishing Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner ($32 each).
STEP 3: On damp hair, DJ mixed a small amount of the Alterna Haircare Caviar Seasilk Oil Gel ($28) with the Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Omega (+) Nourishing Oil ($38), and brushed it through with a Mason Pearson brush.
STEP 4: Using a large round brush, DJ blow dried Katie’s hair on high-heat and parted it far to Katie’s left-hand side.
STEP 5: DJ prepped Katie’s dry hair with the Alterna Haircare Caviar Perfect Iron Spray ($28), and then used a thin Sedu Revolution Diamond flatiron, from root to tip, to create a super smooth look.
STEP 6: DJ gathered Katie’s parted hair low at the nape of her neck, and secured it using a hair bungee. He wrapped several small pieces of hair around the bungee to hide it, and secured those strands with bobby pins.
STEP 7: DJ finished by spraying a supple amount of Alterna Haircare Caviar Perfect Texture Finishing Spray ($28) to the top of Katie’s head, and applied a dime-size amount of Alterna Haircare Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Micromist ($25) to her ends.”
Katie Holmes’ Perfect Skin & Makeup
Katie’s skin and makeup was done by Genevieve Herr. They focused on a smokey eye and stunning skin. She told us: “The most important step to looking amazing on the Red Carpet is to take care of your skin, and Katie has great skin. Makeup artists cannot work wonders without a great foundation.”
Here’s how Genevieve achieved Katie’s look:
Next Genevieve applied primer, followed by a moisturizing tint and concealer under Katie’s eyes, on the corners of her mouth, and on her brow bone.
When defining eyes, Genevieve always chooses a kohl pencil, which is softer and easier to smudge. The one she used on Katie is Laura Mercier in Black Violet.
Then Genevieve slightly powdered the eyes to set the liner and applied eye shadow — using the Lancôme Violet Sweetheart set. She applied a dark amethyst color on the lids, and blended in a smoky black eye shadow.
Lastly, Genevieve kept the lips neutral with a beige pink color to enhance Katie’s glowing look.”
So simple and easy! What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you loving this look on Katie as much as we are? We’d love to know!
