KERASILK X Reese Witherspoon Golden Globes

Celebrity Hairstylist, Lona Maria Vigi, worked with Reese Witherspoon for  2024 Golden Globes.

See below for how to get the look from Lona:

1. Getting Reese ready for the big night, Lona wanted to create a soft half up style with smooth, moveable texture.

2. To keep a beautiful hairstyle looking fresh for a long night, especially a very windy one, Lona recommends prepping the hair to provide a great base for styling.

3. To start, on towel dried hair, Lona used a new KERASILK product (launching soon) to protect the hair. This deep acting, high performance hair treatment restores highly damaged and weakened hair from the inside out. 

4. Next, Lona applied the KERASILK Volumizing Styling Foam to create instant, long-lasting volume. This product is ultra-lightweight and not only boosts body in fine hair textures, but also acts as a heat protectant, humidity blocker, and helps with frizz.

5. Using a large brush, Lona dried the hair by lifting up and away from the scalp for extra volume.

6. Lona then applied the KERASILK Multi-Benefit Hair Oil to add shine and help tame any fly-aways.

7. Once dry, Lona sectioned the hair and back combed ever so slightly at the crown for a little lift and then loosely gathered the hair in a half up chignon. To secure the knot, Lona sprayed a light dusting of the KERASILK Texturizing Finishing Spray, ensuring it stays put while still being flexible and touchable throughout the evening.

8. Lastly, to ensure the look stays all night, Lona used the KERASILK Texturizing Finishing Spray to make sure everything stays in place on this windy night.
