When Salma Hayek hit the red carpet at the 2012 Golden Globes on Sunday it was hard to pay attention to anything other than her dazzling black-and-gold Gucci Couture gown.

But the Puss in Boots star’s incredible figure wasn’t the only asset on display Sunday night. The 45-year-old mom rocked one of her hottest hairstyles to date: full, shiny and oh-so-glamorous waves.

"I was inspired by the dramatic design and shimmering black in her gown, and wanted to create a look that was reminiscent of Hollywood's film noir period, but very modern," Hayek's hairstylist and Moroccanoil Global Brand Ambassador Robert Vetica tells Us Weekly.

After adding a bit of length with extensions, Vetica blow dried the hair with a round brush then wrapped two-inch sections around a small curling iron, making sure to twist them away from the face.

"I kept the curls tight knowing the length would help it drop into a loose wave," he adds. To finish, Vetica brushed through the spirals, teased the roots, and misted with hairspray.
