So, yes, I know I said that I was going to hold off on posting Golden Globes looks until later this spring, but Nancy O’Dell’s hair was my favorite and then Rusk offered to giveaway a few of the products needed to recreate the look at home. Yes, this post was a no-brainer. Make sure you enter below!

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one with this opinion, but it really does seem like Nancy O’Dell is usually looking much better than the stars she interviews on the Red Carpet, doesn’t it? Looking at her hair here makes me really wish I was still blonde. Sigh.

Nancy’s chignon was created by celebrity hairstylist Bobby H. Grayson using Rusk hair products. Rusk is a great hair product company that I’m becoming more familiar with, and as I use more of their products I’m more and more impressed with them.

Read on to see how Nancy’s look was created and to enter to win some of the products used!

Step 1: Grayson began by applying RUSK’s Deepshine Oil to Nancy’s towel-dried hair.

“This oil is perfect for eliminating frizz and leaves hair with a brilliant shine. I suggest applying Deepshine to damp hair prior to thermal styling as the formula also protects against heat damage”
– Bobby H. Grayson

Step 2: Grayson blew out Nancy’s hair using a round boar bristle brush and began creating sections. He then used the sections to work RUSK’s CTC Technology Hot Rollers into the hair and let set for 20 minutes before removing.

“The rollers created loose, soft curls which provided a voluminous base for the final look.”
– Bobby H. Grayson

Step 3: Grayson gathered Nancy’s hair into a low pony tail – gently combing through hair at the crown of the head to create a smooth and polished look. He then began twisting the pony tail and gathering the hair hair to create a low chignon at the nape of the neck. Grayson secured the hair using both long hair pins and smaller bobby pins.

“Chignon’s can be tightly secured and polished like Nancy’s look or can be worn loose and messy for a different look altogether. Since Nancy has longer bangs, I let them frame her face for a flirty edge.”
– Bobby H. Grayson

Step 4: For the finishing touch, Grayson sprayed a light misting of RUSK’s W8less Hair Spray around Nancy’s look. This firm holding spray was essential for securing her strands and keeping her red carpet ready for hours.

Now for the contest!

Rusk has offered to give away 3 sets of RUSK Deepshine Oil & W8less Hairspray! I loved Deepshine Oi when I used it, and I hope it works just as well for you.
