Salt Watch: Moroccan Oil, Naomi Watts and Angelina Jolie

It's all about Salt these days - check out Naomi and Angelina...

Naomi Watts' New Look at Salt Premiere

Naomi Watts seems to keep getting more beautiful. At the premiere of Salt last night she looked beyond fabulous as she wore a shorter, dramatic new blunt bob with layered side-swept bangs. Inspired by the lines of the metallic strapless Gucci mini-dress that Naomi wore, stylist Robert Vetica created a sleek look that referenced 60's British pop and a Studio 54 vibe refined by a soft, natural mood.

According to Vetica, "It was quite a change for Naomi. I cut 2 inches off, kept her hair blunt and collarbone length, and created bangs that swooped to the side. The length is a bit longer in front and slightly higher in back. The bangs were first cut long and blunt, then razored and texturized to about the bridge of the nose so they looked lighter around the face and were easily swept to the side.

"After we did so many different looks for Cannes, I wanted Naomi to look fresh and young and really different. The look had to accent her gorgeous blonde color, have lots of shine and movement and look really healthy and strong.

I started with Moroccanoil Light because fine blonde hair tangles so easily but can't take too much conditioner. Argan oil-infused Moroccanoil absorbs right into delicate lightened hair, makes it easier to comb, gives it a smoother texture, and eliminates flyaways. It also makes blowdrying faster, all without weighing hair down. The strands look light and airy, as if I didn't use any product.

After I blowdried the hair and shaped it, I used Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray for an added boost of shine for when she appeared in the spotlight. I finished off with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to keep flyaways at bay for the length of the evening, while still allowing the hair to move. I did a couple of quick mists from about 6 inches, then put a comb through the hair right away to loosen the look while keeping its hold."

Press Junket: Angelina Jolie

All eyes were on Angelina Jolie at the international press junket for her highly-anticipated film, "Salt," in Cancun, Mexico today.

Truly breathtaking, she wore an elegant, white strapless dress with hair that was smooth, sleek and natural-looking. It was styled by David Babaii, who created her beautiful new style with bangs.

This is how David achieved the look: "The humid climate and tropical breezes of Cancun presented unique styling challenges. After cutting the bangs a bit shorter and chipping into them so they appeared even softer and swept away, I dampened her hair and applied Moroccanoil Treatment to protect it during blowdrying, prevent frizz in this a very damp environment, and lock in weightless, natural-looking shine.

Next, I applied Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to create soft hold, and smooth any bends in her texture. I then made a side part, sweeping the bangs to the left, and created three sections: two on the side and a larger one in the back. I used a large round brush to blow each section smooth.

To complete the look, I manipulated the hair and tousled it for a natural, bohemian touch. I finished with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray for strong hold that kept the style in place but allowed it to move naturally."
