When Scarlett Johansson hit the red carpet at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles, we couldn't help but wonder: How did hairstylist Robert Vetica manage to get her short strands to do that?

Armed with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray and a half-inch curling iron, Vetica molded and shaped Johansson's short hair into a sculpted updo hairstyle with '40s flair.

"I didn't want it to be too natural or too Hollywood," Vetica told StyleList. "There's softness and it's not so Marilyn-ness."

With Johansson, a Globes presenter, dressed in a nude Elie Saab beaded gown, Vetica drew inspiration from the sophisticated ladies of the '40s and '50s captured by famous photographer Lillian Bassman.

To perfect this look, Vetica prepped Johansson's strands with a generous spritz of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray, Glimmer Shine Spray and Light Treatment for added shine and moisture. Then he curled her strands up and away with a half-inch curling iron.

"Using a smaller curling iron allows you to give it that shape and movement," said Vetica. "In hairdressing, you really have to have a great base and the half-inch curling iron allows you to set and manipulate it."

After curling, he set with more hairspray and backcombed her locks. Two 1934 Flammes brooches worn as hair clips (round and baguette diamonds set in platinum) from the Van Cleef & Arpels Private Collection rounded out the look and helped to keep Johansson's updo in place.
