Lily James looked heavenly in a white gown Marchesa gown at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards, but it was her effortless waves that completed her sweet look. Lily’s hair by hair stylist Ashley Streicher for SHOW Beauty explains, “A 1970’s French Riviera vibe- elegant and glamorous, with an edge.”
How To: To create her cool, brushed out waves, Streicher started by spraying the SHOW Beauty Sheer Thermal Protect to her clean, dry hair to prepare for heat styling and then the SHOW Beauty Divine Thickening Mist at the roots to add a bit of volume. Then, she gave Lily a center part and sprayed a touch of the SHOW Beauty Premiere Finishing Spray to each section to keep the hair in place. She used a 1 1/2 inch curling iron, to curl the hair securing each row with a setting pin. The hair at the nape of the neck was set with curls in one direction, and the next layer was curled in the opposite direction to build body and create a tousled wave, and so on. For the top layer of the hair around the center part, she used a flatiron instead of a curling iron to form finger waves, that appeared loose and undone. Lastly, she let the whole look set, unpinned it and brushed it out, finishing the look off with SHOW Beauty Premiere Dry Shampoo and another touch of SHOW Beauty Premiere Finishing Spray to give it long-lasting hold and gorgeous volume.

Lily also had a cool glow courtesy of Jenn Streicher for St. Tropez. What was the look she was going for…“1970’s French Riviera. We wanted Lily to have a subtle bronze glow, as if she just returned from a fabulous trip. Lily is naturally a fair-skinned English rose, so achieving the perfect golden shade played a major role in the overall look.”
“Lily received a St. Tropez spray tan two days before the event for a healthy, head-to-toe glow. To enhance the tan, I took St. Tropez Luxe Dry Oil and spread all over Lily’s exposed arms the morning of the event. The formula provides the most natural bronze and a very subtle shimmer that reflects beautifully off the flash bulbs of cameras.”
