  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Simply Chic Style

    Inspiration: A tribute to Mary Tyler Moore
    Hairstylist: Matthew Monzon

    Get the Look:

    1. Starting with freshly washed and lightly conditioned hair​, Monzon ​us​ed ​​BC Bonacure Excellium Taming Shampoo with Q10+ + Omega-3​, and BC Excellium Taming Conditioner WITH Q10+ + Omega-3​, both from Schwarzkopf Professional​. "​I used​ ​Schwarzkopf Professional's ​BC Excellium Taming with Q10+ + Omega-3 range on Julia Louis-Dreyfus' mature, ​thick,​ ​curly, color-treated hair — perfect for coarse, colored, aging hair​, it was the key to​ creating​ her 2017 SAG Awards look​," says​ Monzon​.​
    2. ​Since he wanted a smooth​,​ predominately straight style​,​ Monzon took a quarter-sized amount o​f​ the​​ ​BC Excellium Taming ​Milk​ with Q10+ + Omega-3​​ emulsified in his hands​,​ then distributed it through the hair​, from the mid​-​shaft through the ends.     
    3. To achieve volume and body in the hair​,​ he used Schwarzkopf Professional’s ​BC Excellium Plumping Soufflé WITH Q10+ + Collagen and combed through the hair from root​,​ to end​s.  
    4. ​He then​​ proceeded to ​b​low​-dry the hair​,​ lifting​ it ​with his hands to get the bulk of the moisture out​. He lifted sections of the hair with a large round brush, to ​give the ​hair a smooth and shiny finish.   
    5. ​Once a section of hair ​was​ finished​,​ Monzon placed ​Julia’s​ hair in large ​velcro  rollers​,​ ​working ​his​ way from​ the back of ​her​ head to the front​. He left the rollers in ​for 20 minutes, ​while Julia was whisked off to make​​up.
    6. ​Once the rollers had cooled, he removed the​m a​nd brushed through the hair​.
    7. Creating a shallow center part​,​ and taking a two-inch barrel iron​, Monzon smoothed the hair​, ​and gave the ends a subtle flip.
    8. He finished off the look with Schwarzkopf Professional’s ​OSiS+ Elastic Finish Hairspray to lock it all into place.


  • Julie Bowen’s Chic Half-Up ‘Do

    Hairstylist: Jill Crosby

    Get the Look:

    1. “I began with damp hair and blew out with my T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Dryer and the T3
    2. Anti-Gravity round brush creating a middle part,” says Crosby. “It’s very important to dry hair with the concentrator rather than the round brush because we wanted to make the hair super straight and flat to the head.
    3. “Next, I used my T3 SinglePass Luxe flat iron to straighten the hair in sections.
    4. “To [add] length to her chin-length hair, we added in extensions.
    5. “The most important part of creating a look with extensions is marrying the hair’s natural texture with the extension’s texture. To do this, every time I added in a new extension, I flat ironed the natural hair with the extension to blend them together.
    6. “Once the hair is completely flat ironed, I trimmed the extensions and pinned the hair half up to finish the look.”
