Golden Globes Exclusive: "Tina Fey's Hair Is Like a Wig"
Celebrity hairstylist Richard Marin dishes on the co-host's trio of looks from the awards show
Most stars make their red carpet rounds and have a few far and in-between camera shots during the ceremony (of them laughing, stumbling through an acceptance speech, or fake smiling when the competition wins, etc.). One hairstyle, multiple angles, done. But styling the co-host of an awards show (in this case, the most-watched Golden Globes in seven years) is a completely different story. Celebrity hairstylist Richard Marin had to create not just one but three hairstyles for Tina Fey's second stint as the Globes' MC alongside BFF Amy Poehler.
Luckily, Fey trusts her stylists. According to Marin, she rarely ever gives direction -- she has an idea of what she wants, then lets her stylist have at it. Marin says Fey's only request for the Globes (one we can all relate to): Gimme a style that will stay out of my face. For Marin, the rest was a no-brainer. Here, Marin shares his behind-the-scene work on Fey's hairstyle changes exclusively with TotalBeauty.com.
According to Marin, every red carpet hairstyle always centers around the fashion. Fey had three dresses to wear for the evening, and Marin opted for three different styles to complement each gown. "She likes low-maintenance looks, which goes with her color and cut," says Marin. All that teasing, combing and product overload can be a nightmare, but luckily for Marin, Fey has a good head on her shoulders. "She has every hairdresser's dream hair," Marin says. "It's thick and wavy. It's like a wig. It straightens, it curls. Just use the right products and you can never fail."
T-Studio Silk Ceramic Dryer, $29.99. Using a straightening iron with curved ends, Marin bent the length of her hair from mid-shaft down through to the ends. Once all hair was curled, he took the top portion and created slight braid at the back of her crown to hold the look.
Naturia Dry Shampoo, focusing on the crown area to re-lift her hair again. Then Marin used a straightening iron to bend the roots up for extra lift and volume, shook her hair and let it fall naturally. Instead of loading up with hairspray, Marin used Fioravanti Shine Enhancing No Rinse Detangling Spray, $26, to finish.
Vegetal Finishing Spray."At the 3-minute warning we were like, we did it! With three minutes to spare. I'm not kidding, there were like five people working on her, doing her makeup, putting her shoes on ... it was insane."
