Get the Look: Caitriona Balfe Precious, Sleek Bun by Harry Josh for Joico

The hottest talent showed up once again for Hollywood’s 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards and the women, as usual, were stunning, powerful and united.

For the star-studded night, Joico partnered with celebrity hairstylist Harry Josh, who’s worked with such beauties as Rose Byrne, Gisele Bündchen, Cindy Crawford, and Claudia Schiffer among many others. Josh worked his magic on third-time nominee for Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series – Drama for Outlander, Caitriona Balfe.


Prep is super important to a finished look – the battle of healthy looking hair begins in the shower. To ensure moisturized and healthy hair, I started Caitriona’s hair by using Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Luster Lock as I washed the hair. This deep-penetrating system was left on her hair for minutes before washing out and is was really a 3-minute miracle for dehydrated hair as it gave the high-wattage shine needed for tonight’s red carpet or is even great for day-to-day life.

We decided on a very sleek bun for Caitriona’s red-carpet look. First, I started blow drying the hair, making sure to apply the Joico Heat Set Blowout Perfecting Crème to her still wet hair – this helped to diminish frizz or any heat damage, which was important for the sleekness of the look. It was also vital to blow dry the hair downwards using a flat brush, this made sure hair was illuminated and lent to the shininess we were trying to achieve. Once her hair was dried, I made sure to apply the smallest drop of the Joico K-PAK Protect & Shine Serum to the ends of Caitriona’s hair to create an ultra-healthy finished look.

To start the styling, I created a zig-zag part at the top of her head, then secured all her hair into an extremely tight ponytail in the back using an elastic band. I then started to twist the ponytail around the elastic band until I felt it buckle. Once I felt that buckle, I secured the hair with bobby pins to keep the bun in place.

To finish off the look and make sure it appeared extra-glossy, I used the Joico Power Spray Fast-Dry Finishing Spray which not only ensured the hair would stay in place, but also give a high-gloss, almost wet-look finish. Finally, for an extra hint of flair, we decided to use chain-metal panels on the side of the head to creating a fun, a-symmetrical look.
