How to Achieve Saoirse Ronan's '70s Glam Hairstyle

Actress and star of the latest Little Women movie, Saoirse Ronan’s 2020 Golden Globes style was inspired by “'70s glamour icons, specifically Julie Christie’s iconic hair from one of my favorite movies, Shampoo,” said Adir Abergel, celebrity hairstylist, Virtue Labs creative director and BE Expert. “I wanted to create soft, touchable volume starting at the crown and polished rolled ends. Together, they embody such an iconic retro glam feel.”

Abergel started by applying a combination of Virtue Volumizing Primer and Virtue Volumizing Mousse throughout the roots and lightly though the mid-shaft for maximum volume. Using the cool air setting, he rough dried until about 80% dry. Then, he round brushed the hair and set it in rollers throughout. Once her hair cooled down, Abergel removed the rollers to reveal a voluminous blowout. After brushing out the curls, he used a 1.5 inch marcel iron to create a subtle, face-framing bend. For finishing touches, Abergel used a flat iron to bend the ends of the hair under and smoothed a few drops of Virtue Healing Oil over her strands for glamorous shine.

“Healthy hair is the foundation of all great style. Virtue products with Alpha Keratin 60ku instantly restore and replenish hair, giving me the perfect canvas to create a great look for even the most show-stopping occasion,” said Abergel.
