Scarlett Johansson at Comic-Con 2009
To achieve this curly, wavy, sexy look for Scarlett
Johanssonís appearance at Comic-Con 2009, celebrity
hairstylist David Babaii applied mousse from roots to
ends. This gives just the right amount of volume and
hold to her strawberry blonde hair.
Next, he rough dried her tresses by using his hands,
moving the hair in various directions. Once dry, he
sectioned her hair into 3 different parts: top, sides
and back leaving the nape area free. This is one of
Davidís most important styling tips, since you need
to have constant control over the hair at all times.
To create his famous wavy curls, he used an FHI Heat
Ceramic Curling Iron.
To style, he took small "V" shaped strands and wrapped them
around the inside of the barrel. Then, David allowed each
curl to fall naturally. Through selected strands, he ran his
fingers up the partially curled strand to achieve added volume.
For additional lift at the scalp area, he sprayed a root lift
on his finger tips and applied to the root area by roughly
massaging into the area. This gives added fullness and texture.
To complete, he sprayed with a styling spray.

David Babaiiís inspiration for Scarlett Johanssonís
style was a 40ís Marilyn Monroe look with the illusion
of a chin length "bob" without cutting any hair!
After drying her locks with hair polish applied to damp
hair, David divided her tresses into 3 sections: top
with a side part, sides and back leaving the nape area
free. To create these large barrel sized curls, he took
alternating "V" shaped partings to avoid any part lines
from showing through. David used an FHI Heat Ceramic
Curling Iron throughout her entire head. The sides and
back curls were pinned into various sized looped curls
giving the illusion of a short "bob". On the top, he
gently brushed her hair to one side forming soft waves.
For added glamour, David brushed back one side and secured
with a decorative hair pin. For hold, David used a light styling
spray for a soft long lasting hold.
