“Scarlett didn’t want a bombshell look for the cover,” he explains. “She wanted something more natural. She already has movie star hair—it’s the perfect length, color and texture.”

Oribe walks us through the steps to achieve Scar Jo’s effortlessly sexy style:

Apply Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse to damp hair and power dry so that the hair has movement.

Then, add Thick Dry Finishing Spray and hit it with the blowdryer again for fullness.

Using a 2-inch curling iron, enhance natural movement by curling various sections of the hair—some big, some small—to create good texture while avoiding the perfect wave.

Next, work with hair around the face to create sexy, face-framing texture.

Finish with Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray for flexible hold and to prevent frizz.
