Celeb stylist Robert Vetica created Cate Blanchett’s faux bob for the 2014 Golden Globes Awards. Inspired by Grace Kelly, Vetica and Blanchett wanted to keep it classic to work with the Armani Couture gown she wore. 

Here’s how Robert created Cate’s look:

  1. First, prep damp hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse, applying throughout the hair for lift and hold.
  2. Create a low side part and then starting in the back, take a medium boar bristle round brush and blow dry hair down and away from the face, keeping hair flat. Apply a bit more mousse to the front of your hair to help shape your style while giving extra hold to your look.
  3. Once hair is dry, spritz Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat Protect & Shine Spray to protect hair before curling it. Using a ¾ inch curling iron, take hair in the back of your head, separate into 2 inch sections and curl.
  4. Once the curled hair has cooled, backcomb to create texture and roll hair up into an “underwrap” style, pinning the look into place. Once all the hair has been rolled and pinned, pull a few pieces of hair from the “underwrap” to create a natural look with a little texture.
  5. To finish, spray hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray to lock your look in place.
