Tuesday, 13 January 2015 15:02

At Sunday’s 72nd Annual Golden Globes, the awards that were given out were not the only gold stealing the spotlight. No matter their natural color, A-list stars ranging from Jennifer Lopez to Chrissy Teigen to Jennifer Aniston flaunted lightened hair and discreet, golden highlights.

Redken Celebrity Colorist Tracey Cunningham helped Amy Poehler, Kate Beckinsale and Dakota Johnson, among many other stars, prepare for the awards with Redken color... get the formulas!

Amy Poehler
Tracey applied Redken’s NEW Blonde Idol Blue Oil Lightening System Oil Booster (coming to Redken salons this March) to achieve a customized lightened shade that adds depth and incorporates the babylights trend that mimics the sun-kissed tones that hair took on during childhood. To ensure Amy’s color would shine onstage, Tracey finished with Shades EQ Gloss, an ammonia-free, no-lift formula that acts as a glaze, color refresher and color corrector.

To recreate Amy’s blonde, use the following Redken formula:
Highlight Formula
1 oz. Blonde Idol Blue Oil Lightening System Oil Booster
2 packettes Blonde Idol Customizable Blue Powder Activator
2 oz. 20 vol. Pro-oxide Cream Developer
Glaze Formula
1 oz. 09G Vanilla Cream Shades EQ Gloss
½ oz. 09N Café Au Lait Shades EQ Gloss
½ oz. Crystal Clear Shades EQ Gloss
2 oz. Shades EQ Processing Solution

Kate Beckinsale
To revitalize Kate’s color and achieve ultimate coverage with natural reflects, Tracey applied Redken Cover Fusion, a low ammonia, 100% coverage color cream that gives hair a rich blend of copper and gold tones while adding density and fullness. For subtle highlights and added depth that would further enhance Kate’s updo, Tracey used Redken’s NEW Blonde Idol High Lift Conditioning Cream Color from the Professional Haircolor Collection.

To recreate Kate’s rich brunette with subtle highlights, use the following Redken formula:
Base Formula
1 ½ oz. 4NN Cover Fusion
½ oz. 5NGb Cover Fusion
2 oz. 20 vol. Pro-oxide Cream Developer
Highlight Formula
1 oz. Beige (.13) Blonde Idol High Lift Conditioning Cream
2 oz. 20 vol. Pro-oxide Cream Developer

Dakota Johnson
Tracey applied Redken Chromatics to fortify Dakota’s hair and create multidimensional color, then applied Flash Lift maximum power lightening powder to the ends to create an ombre effect. For a healthy shine, Tracey finished with Shades EQ Gloss.

To recreate Dakota’s subtle ombre, use the following Redken formula:
Base Formula
1 ½ oz. 5NW (5.03) Chromatics
½ oz. 4Bc (4.54) Chromatics
2 oz. 10 vol. Chromatics Oil in Cream Developer
Ombre’ Formula
