Scarlett Johansson, also known as Natasha Romanoff or the Black Widow in her new film, looked every bit the movie star at the premiere of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier last week. The blonde bombshell was flawless in her classic yet sexy black and white Armani Prive dress, and a gorgeous easy tousled hairstyle. Oh, and good news for those of us sans superpowers (or even a professional glam squad): Johansson’s own hairstylist let us in on his secret to recreate the look ourselves.
According to Davy Newkirk, it’s actually simple to create the side-swept waves at home. “With the ornate details and structured shoulders,” Newkirk explained of Johansson’s Armani dress. “I thought her hair would look great in an effortless and soft style, with a touch of structure.”
To get this look, Newkirk started by prepping Johansson’s hair with Moroccanoil Treatment Light for a boost of shine throughout and then sprayed her roots with Moroccanoil Root Boost for extra volume and hold. To dry, Newkirk worked the Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Round Brush through large sections of her hair, working his way up.
Without creating a part, Newkirk brushed all her hair to one side and used a 1 ¼” curling iron on large sections and set it in pin curls. He used Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to cool her hair and brushed out the pin curls, keeping the direction of the style.
To give the style its effortless look, he took a blow dryer and blew her hair around to tousle the curls and sprayed a little more Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to set the look.
With these simple steps, you can be rocking this hairstyle on the red carpet, out with your friends-- or in the off chance you’ll be fighting crime and protecting the world from the forces of evil--and still look killer.
