We've snagged the tips and trick the stylists used backstage so you can steal your favorite look of the night. Read our beauty roundup below to dazzle like the stars themselves.
Lea Michele's Amped Up Waves
To match her slinky and beaded Oscar de la Renta gown, Dove celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend gave Lea Michele modern waves with a '70s influence. "I went to Lea's dress fitting and immediately knew I had to complement it with a modern take on '70s chic glamour. I drew a lot of inspiration from photos of Bianca Jagger," said Townsend.
To get the look, Townsend started with clean, just washed hair and added a drop of Dove Nourishing Oil Care Serum. "The oil blend in this line, with coconut and almond oils, absorbs into the hair instantly to nourish and smooth dry hair. As soon as I put in the serum I was immediately able to apply another styling product," said Townsend. "To add a bit of texture and volume, I raked a pump of Dove Body & Lift Mousse throughout damp hair and blow-dried five inch sections quickly with a round brush.
"While curling, I made sure to alternate the time I held each curl in the iron. The longer you apply heat, the sharper the curl (Tip: Wrap two to three inch sections of hair around a one inch curling iron, away from the face to create big flowing waves as opposed to curls). I alternated the curl time between two and ten seconds to create different shapes throughout the hair that wouldnt fold together. I wanted to purposely create the fluff at the top of her head, so I had Lea flip her hair upside down. I rubbed a pea-size amount of the new Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave-In Smoothing Cream between my hands, and then I raked it through the hair from the bottom up to eliminate flyaways and create shine and texture without compromising the waves throughout the hair.
To finish Lea's look I sprayed Dove Unscented Extra Hold Hairspray with Natural Movement throughout the hair to make sure the style stayed in place, but still had lots of movement.
Christina Hendricks's Sexy Smoky Eye
COVERGIRL celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali said the Mad Men star's look was inspired by Brigitte Bardot's black smoky eyes and nude face. "We went in this direction but softened the look for the red carpet by using a creamy, shimmery shadow in gunmetal. This gives the eye shadow a transparent quality that makes the look very strong but also very modern."
"I used NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Alabaster for fresh, lightweight coverage. For a hint of color, I used Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Plush Peach on the apples of the cheeks, looking polished and fresh."
"For Christina's timeless smoky eye, I used Smoky ShadowBlast in Onyx Smoke on the lid from just above the crease down to the lash line. I swept out past the natural lash line at the outer corners of the eye to exaggerate the eye size and add a touch of red carpet drama. To define the lash, I used LiquiLine Blast Eyeliner in Black with a coat of LashBlast Fusion Mascara in Very Black.
Amy Adams' Sleek Ponytail
Frederic Fekkai stylist Adir Abergel created Amy Adams elegant ponytail, which accentuated her statuesque dress. To start, he applied Fekkai Coiff Controle Ironless Straightening Balm from the roots to the end of the hair and sprayed with Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel at the hair line. After drying with a round brush he sealed the ends of the hair with a flat iron to get it as flat as possible. He pulled the hair into a high ponytail (a great tip for this is to follow the cheek bone all the way up and then place the base of the ponytail at this point). He then secured the hair with an elastic and topped off with Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist.
Kyra Sedgwick's Soft Eyes and Rose Lips
To get a softer red carpet look, COVERGIRL celebrity makeup artist Robin Siegel applied CHANEL Regard Perle Eyeshadow across the lids, and then used LiquiLine Blast Eyeliner in Silver Spark across the lash line. To complement the eyes, Siegel created a polished, glossy lip with NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Sandstone.
Dianna Agron's Low Knotted Bun
To get a knot bun like Glee's Dianna Agron, Suave celebrity stylist Jenny Cho started by creating texture with Suave Professionals Volumizing Mousse on damp hair. She then dried hair with her fingers and a medium size round brush to smooth out the ends. When finished, she sprayed Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo all over, concentrating on the roots for extra texture. Cho next side parted the hair with a tail comb and teased crown for a little extra volume. She used Suave Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Cream and split the hair down the center into two sections (Cho says to tie a knot as if you're tying a bow and secure the first knot with bobby pins and u-pins). Make another knot right under the first, so it's double knotted, and secure with more pins. Leave the ends out to give it the undone finish. Sculpt the front by adding more anti-frizz cream and mold the fringe to frame the face. Leave a piece out on one side to add a touch of looseness. Cho finished the look with Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Lightweight Hold Hairspray for a natural, moveable finish.
Hilary Swank's Champagne Lids
CHANEL makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua matched Swank's makeup to the caramel and champagne colored beading and detail in her dress. "Hilary's eyes were extended out with CHANEL Eye Definer in Brun-Cuivre and blended along entire upper and lower lash line, on the outer half of the eye and into crease to create the more graphic shape of the '70s lined eye. She finished off the eyes with CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir and Ardell individual lashes on the outer half of eyes. Her cheeks were warmed up with a peachy tone, CHANEL Powder Blush in Fresque. Bua kept the lips softly lined with CHANEL Lip Definer in Beige, and moistened with CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Lip Colour in Canotier.
January Jones' Sculpted Updo
Inspired by the 1950s, Frederic Fekkai celebrity stylist Renato Campora created this look by applying Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Styling Whip to create volume and Fekkai Coiff Controle Ironless Straightening Balm to smooth out the hair. Parting hair to the side, he dried using a round brush. To accentuate the waves, he used a one-inch curling iron and set the hair into pin curls. Once he took the curls out, he brushed through them for shape and pinned the hair up at the center of the head. To finish, he sprayed Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray to make the style last all night.
Mila Kunis's Romantic Waves
TRESemmé celebrity stylist Mara Roszak created Kumis's full bodied waves in just a few simple steps. To start, she applied TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse to wet hair. Next, she parted the hair slightly off-center and dried with a medium-sized round brush. To curl, she used a one-inch barrel curling iron and broke up the curls with fingers to create stunning waves. She topped the look off with TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray to keep her curls in tact all night long.
