Golden Globes Hairstyles: Joanne Froggatt's Milkmaid Braid by Unite's Ashley Streicher

At the 2015 Golden Globe Awards, Downton Abbey star Joanne Froggatt took home the Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries or TV Movie award, sporting a pretty milkmaid braid. 

Joanne's stylist Ashley Streicher for Unite explains, “The dress is a beautiful Marchesa that had never been seen – super exclusive. Navy blue, strapless, and covered in woven and textured flowers. I always like to look at the runway show of whatever designer the client is wearing for hair inspiration. Originally Joanne mentioned that she wanted to wear her hair down, to one side with textured waves. As much as I love some textured waves I thought that it was way too special of a night for Joanne to have "boring" hair. The top of her dress and her earrings are stunning, and after a few conversations with her stylist, Brad Goreski, we decided best that she wear her hair back, especially with the looming rain clouds. Both Brad and I agreed on some sort of fresh, more modern braided look. And I decided a crown because... Well, why not!? She's nominated!”


1.     Spray damp hair with UNITE 7Seconds Condition before rough drying

2.     Mid way through the blowout, comb through UNITE Blow & Set from mid length to ends before drying completely

3.     Once dry, apply UNITE Expanda Dust to root area to create texture and hold before lightly backcombing
