We’re surely not the only ones crushing on Jennifer Lawrence! And during tonight’s 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards, we loved her short pixie cut and berry lips on the red carpet. But, we just can’t get over her ’70s-inspired look for her part in American Hustle (which she won the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy award!).

If I was to be transported back to any era, I believe it would have been the 1970’s. It was the epitome of glamour with plunging necklines, sequins, spandex, long-flowing hair and dramatic makeup. Need I say more?

Step 11: Since we are using a brighter color, it is imperative to get the lips right: Apply your lipstick following your natural lip shape. I then applied the gloss in the center of my lips to make them look juicier.

Makeup is done now on to the hair! The hair is actually quite simple:

Step 1:  Curl all of your hair. I like to start from the nape of my neck and work my way up.

Step 2: Once all the hair is curled, spray your hair with the hairspray to lock in the curl.

Step 3:  Teasing Time! Using your smoothing brush, tease your roots throughout your whole head.

Step 4: Pull your hair into a loose ponytail high on the top of your head, leaving the hair around your face loose. If you need to, you can use the smoothing brush to get rid of any bumps.

Step 5: Pin the curls around the hair tie. Finish with a little more spray and voilà! You are ready for the disco!
