Get the Look: Red Carpet Hair Color from the Golden Globes

This year’s Golden Globe Awards was a star-studded affair. Hollywood’s A-listers were more glamorous than ever as they walked the red carpet in stylish suits and gorgeous gowns, perfectly complemented by an array of stunning beauty looks. But, as any colorist knows, it’s what goes into a look before a celeb hits the red carpet that can make or break the whole thing. Yep, it’s all about the hair color!

Celebrity hairstylist Denis De Souza was on-hand before Sunday night’s big event, creating gorgeous hues for many of the night’s most glamorous guests. From Kathryn Hahn’s sun-kissed highlights, to Brie Larson’s golden blonde, to Lily Collins’ burnished brunette, these were the evening’s most show-stopping shades.

Help your client embrace her inner Hollywood siren with two of De Souza’s color formulas, below!

Kathryn Hahn’s Sun-Kissed Sombré
A riff on his signature sombré technique, this highlighted look was a slam-dunk for De Souza. His cleverly-woven golden highlights were a soft counterpart to Kathryn's edgy middle part, fringe and undone waves.

FORMULA
“I applied equal parts of LumiShine Permanent Crème Color 5N and 5NA with 20 Volume Developer at the regrowth area,” says De Souza. “Then, I used Free Play Clay Lightener with 30 Volume Developer to create this beautiful sombré effect on her. I glossed with LumiShine Demi-Permanent Liquid 1/3 9NV + 1/3 8NA + 1/3 Clear with 5 Volume Developer.”

Lily Collins’ Gilded Hue
De Souza took this belle of the ball to a luscious brown, giving her brunette updo just the right amount of burnished luster and dimension. With a final gloss to refresh color and add intense shine, Lily was ready to rock the red carpet.

FORMULA
“I used LumiShine Permanent Crème Color 7NWB with 20 Volume Developer to add very fine highlights around the face, to soften the regrowth and add illumination,” says De Souza. “I glossed with LumiShine Demi-Permanent Liquid Color 9NV with 5 Volume Developer. I also followed it with K-PAK Color Therapy Luster Lock Shine and Repair Treatment for amazing shine on the red carpet.”
