The actress' hairstylist Cervando Maldonado topped her Gucci gown with a retro-inspired 'do.

Golden Globes presenter Felicity Jones' intricate pink Gucci gown begged for an updo, according to hairstylist Cervando Maldonado. "I was personally inspired by the classic 'It' girls from the '60s — Britt Ekland, Sharon Tate, Jane Birkin. I wanted to take that idea and put a spin on it for the red carpet and for Felicity and the evening," says the hair guru. "When we met, we came to the conclusion that I was on the right page, so we did a textured, slightly loose chignon with some beautiful textured bangs and fringy pieces around the face."

The look he calls "beautiful, very modern and classic" does slightly echo looks Jones has worn in the past on carpets. After all, "Felicity has a very classic style — she knows who she is and knows what she likes." But, Maldonado says, the difference is in the details. For this occasion he added more texture and height to the top of her crown "to give a bit of added glamour for the evening." To accomplish this, he blew out a mohawk-like section from the crown back using Matrix Style Link Turbo Dryer Blow Dry Spray ($18), pinned in two pink velcro rollers — one behind the bangs, one behind the crown — allowed it to set and then removed for instant volume. The finishing touch: Matrix Style Link Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray ($18).

Maldonado notes that while past carpets have seen more sleek, slick updos that smooth all the hair back, he predicts this looser style to be an up-and-coming look. "We hung the hair over the ears slightly so it has more of an early '70s feel," he says. "I think it will be a trend for the next season. Also a lot of texture, which is always classic."
