SAG Awards: Hilary Swank’s tousled sex-kitten hair

Hilary Swank's Bond girl-inspired hairstyle was one of her best, as it softened up the actress' usually  strong, severe look.

Her hair stylist, Robert Vetica, was inspired by the 1960s look of Ursula Andress, and the volume and undulating curls did not disappoint.

Vetica used all Moroccanoil hair products and started by blow-drying Swank’s hair using Moroccanoil Treatment serum to instantly condition and bring any dry ends back to life and make her hair easier to style. 

After the hair was dried, he did a full head set by curling 1-inch by 1-inch sections of hair, starting at the nape of the neck then pinned each to the head. “These were real full-base curls, not spiral curls,” says Vetica. He continued section by section until reaching the crown, and then finished the sides and top of the head.

He gave the set a good spray of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray and let it sit for 20 minutes to ensure an even longer-lasting style, then gave it a good brushing and applied a small amount of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream for added body.

Finally, Vetica gave Swank’s hair a good backcombing at the root, sprayed it again and ran his fingers through the hair to loosen it up. He backcombed more at the crown, gave it another quick spray and lightly brushed over the top to smooth and finish.
