Nicole Kidman's classic beauty and flawless skin are widely admired, but where would she be without her gorgeous hair? Whether it's long, short, straight or curly, her striking red hair always seems to settle around her cheekbones (or shoulders) perfectly. For her appearance at the Golden Globes Awards, the actress went for a sleek look and straightened her wavy mane with a flat iron. If you'd like to achieve this silky, modern look, follow the directions of Joey Battisti, artistic director of Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa.
STEP 1 Shampoo hair and use a moisturizing conditioner.
STEP 2 Towel-dry the hair. Spray on an anti-frizz treatment. Blow dry hair using a large round brush. (The larger the brush, the easier it is to straighten hair.) Use a boar bristle brush for extra shine.
STEP 3 Use a hot iron on the back sections of hair first. Working from underneath, guide and hold the iron straight down the hair while applying medium high heat. Repeat this process for the entire head.
STEP 4 Spray a high-shine silicone product on your hands and pat in on your hair, moving hands in a downward motion.
STEP 5 Take an inch-wide section of hair from the middle of the forehead and brush the section back, clipping it with a barrette.
