Hairstylist Harry Josh has been cre­at­ing an aw­ful lot of silky-smooth looks for his high-wattage client list re­cently—Olivia Wilde, Deepika Padukone and Kate Bos­worth have all hit red car­pets look­ing sleeker than a seal. "It's veryre­gal," says Josh, who is John Frieda's cre­ative con­sul­tant. "I thinkit'svery pol­ished and pulled to­gether and re­ally chic—you look very ex­pen­sive, and it el­e­vates ev­ery­thing" Josh cites 1970s icons Ali MacGraw and Cher as in­spi­ra­tion for the look, as well as his client Gwyneth Pal­trow, who has curly hair but al­ways likes to wear it straight and cen­tre-parted with a silky satin fin­ish, no mat­ter the trends. And the trends have not swung this way for a while—the sleek look is a de­par­ture from the tou­sled waves Josh has per­fected on his long­time clients Gisele Bfind­chen and pretty much ev­ery Vic­to­ria's Se­cret model of the past decade. was so over the beach waves," he says. "All the girls were tired of that, so I was like, 'Let's go straight!' They weren't sure, but I thought it would look so el­e­gant. I think it was time for the pen­du­lum to shift." Not just for the A-lis­ters among us, smoothed-out hair is an el­e­gant choice for any­one at­tend­ing a party, wed­ding or re­cep­tion where pho­tos are likely to be taken—i.e. ev­ery­where, these days. 'When a flash hits it, it looks like glass," ex­plains Josh, adding that if you're at­tend­ing with a date, there's a ro­man­tic el­e­ment, too. 'It's lovely that guys can run their fin­gers through your hair and it feels re­ally nice!" Whether you're think­ing of wear­ing your hair down and straight or in a slicked-back pony­tail or bun, the se­cret is in the heat-styling and prod­uct prep. And if you put in the time, you'll be able to count on your style to hold all day and night. 'I've done the Golden Globes when it was rain­ing and their hair didn't move," says Josh. 'You just have to do it very mind­fully."
