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!

See those 2 products? They've been helping me fake my way to a good hair day for a bit now, and I needed to share them with you.
On the left you can see Deepshine Lustre Shine Enhancing Lusterizer. Yes, that's a lot of Lustre. It's a creamy lotion that you can put in your hair wet or dry to help make hair soft, shiny and add a little bit of separation. I've been loving it on my dry hair, as the last step in hair styling. Literally I can dry my hair (paying no attention to making it straight or getting rid of frizz), then apply about a dime sized amount of this to my hair. Distribute it really well, and sometimes I'll even brush it through. Suddenly my hair will look like I spent a huge amount of time drying and styling it! Shiny, frizz free, my long layers have a bit of separation (which I love) and everything is super soft.
On the right is Deepshine Oil Protective Oil Treatment. Similar to other hair oils, this oil is mostly Argan oil with a very light fruity/herbal smell. I like that it comes in a bottle with a very small squeeze top opening- hard to turn yourself into a grease ball! I usually put about a nickel sized amount in my hair when wet, making sure that I evenly distribute it (concentrating on the ends of my hair and avoiding the roots) and I often will comb it through using a wide tooth comb. Dry and style as usual. It helps with shine, softness and makes hair super soft!
I've been combining both of these products (Oil on wet hair, then dry, apply Lusterizer Creme as a last styling step) and my hair has been loving it! I'm frizz free, shiny and my hair is super soft.

I have to admit that I was largely uninspired by this year's Emmy Awards. More ugly dresses than usual (from Anna Paquin, January Jones, Heidi Klum and what on earth happened to Mindy Kaling on her way to the Red Carpet??) and definitely not as many of the great looks as usual. (My faves were Keri Russell, Lea Michelle, Kyra Sedgewick and Julie Benz).
For me, the real standouts on The Red Carpet weren't dresses, accessories or even the makeup looks. It was all about hair for me! I definitely had my favorite hair styles, and lucky for me, the people over at Rusk sent an email with the looks I was loving. Read on to see which were my favorite and how to create them yourself!
