Hair Breakdown | SAG Award Nominee Julie Bowen


Celebrity Stylist Jill Crosby, from Cloutier Agency, shares her red carpet hairstyling secrets for actress Julie Bowen from this years SAG Awards. 

  1. To complement her beautiful beaded dress, I wanted to create an elegant and simple look. Starting with wet hair, I applied a volumising mousse and blew out using my T3 PROi Dryer and a round brush. I then created a deep side part. 

  2. Next, I prepped the hair with a small amount of oil and used the T3 SinglePass 2 flat iron to create lift at the root and a beautiful shine for a sleek look.

  3. I pulled the hair into a very low ponytail, keeping the left side tight to the side of the head and the right top bang out. To create a side sweep of her top bang, I quickly blew out with a round brush and pinned to the side while make-up was being applied.

  4. Because Julie’s hair is only chin length, I built her low chignon using hair extensions. I prepped the hair pieces with dry shampoo to provide more of a ‘grip’.

  5. I then rolled and pinned the extensions to her ponytail until I created the shape I wanted.

    Tip: I love to use matte bobby pins as they provide a better grip and don’t show!

To begin, I prepped hair with a smoothing cream and sectioned in preparation for blow-drying with the T3 PROi Dryer. Once hair was dry, I used the T3 SinglePass 2 flat iron at the root, as I wanted it as smooth as possible before curling.

After sectioning the hair into 5 parts, I started at the nape of the neck, and curled the hair away from her face with the 1.5" barrel attachment of the T3 Whirl Convertible.

I pinned each curl to her head as I went, to allow for cooling. After 20 minutes, I unpinned the curls and brushed out the hair with a boar bristle brush to smooth and break-up the curl.

Beginning with clean, dry hair, I sectioned into 4 parts in preparation for curling.

Using the 1.5" attachment of the T3 Whirl Convertible, I curled 1-inch sections, alternating the direction of the curl, and pinning to the head as I went. After I removed the pins, I brushed the curls out and used a smoothing serum to tame fly-aways.

Next, I pulled her hair into a side pony and secured with an elastic. I gently pulled the short top layers out of the pony and put to the side. To shape the chignon, I twirled the hair in the pony and secured to side of the head with hairpins.

To finish, I shaped the shorter layers to frame the face and applied a generous amount of hairspray for a strong hold.

We decided on a low ponytail with a deep side part that was sleek and had added shine. The look is super modern chic and expensive! All of my favourite things!

To begin, the hair was blown dry with no volume using the T3 PROi dryer, this dryer is perfect because it is lightweight and powerful. I then flat ironed the hair in medium-sized sections with the T3 SinglePass 2 Styling Iron to heat seal the cuticle and provide maximum shine while smoothing the look.

I then secured the ponytail with a crochet elastic, we couldn’t take any chances of the ponytail falling out on the red carpet!

  1. On Second Day Hair, apply dry shampoo to roots then blow dry with the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i to create a thick, full texture.

  2. Run fingers through hair, then divide hair into 1” sections.

  3. Place the first section of hair under the T3 BodyWaver clamp (with clamp remaining open) as close to the root as possible.

  4. Holding iron horizontally, wrap hair neatly around barrel away from face with other hand. Clamp and hold for 3-5 seconds, then release. Very gently unwind hair off barrel. Repeat until all sections have been styled.

  5. Once the waves have fully cooled, use a paddle brush or fingers to create a tousled look. For extra texture and volume, finish with a small amount of dry shampoo on the ends.
