Ever since Julia Roberts’ breakout role as a vivacious redhead in Pretty Women, people have been bringing pictures of the actress to her longtime hairstylist, Serge Normant, to get the same treatment. From rich auburn updos to buttery blonde waves, Normant has been there through it all — and then some. Here, he opens up to Refinery29 about how his styling career took off, his one secret to great hair, and what Julia Roberts is really like to work with. The following interview was told to Megan Decker and edited for length and clarity.It All Started In Paris My career as a stylist began in France, where I was fortunate enough to work with Bruno Pittini. When I was hired to work in his salons, that was it for me; I was in Paris, the fashion capital of the world, and working with hair, which was always my dream. While I was there, I [did] a photoshoot for French Elle. The photos were at the back of the book and it wasn’t my best work, but that was the first time I was truly part of a creative process and it changed the way I looked at hair forever.Then in ’89, I moved from Paris to New York, and I actually lived with [makeup artist] Laura Mercier. She introduced me to the editorial fashion and beauty world in America. I say that my big break, of sorts, came about because of the doors she opened for me in the industry. Through her, I met Steven Meisel, and worked with him on the Dolce & Gabbana campaign in ’91, and then in photo spreads in Italian Vogue and Glamour.Southern Charm I was asked to work on a photoshoot for Vanity Fair with Herb Ritts, the iconic fashion photographer, and Julia Roberts was the cover star. At the time, she was working on The Pelican Brief, and Herb wanted to shoot her in Louisiana at this huge Victorian mansion. She was in the middle of shooting the movie, so she had been up all night filming, and we hit it off immediately. I wan’t expecting it at all, but our energies were so in sync.I remember that Vanity Fair shoot like it was yesterday. We were at this big, old house in Louisiana; it was a little run-down and abandoned, but the property was exquisite. Julia arrived and was so gorgeous, even though she hadn’t slept, with this incredible mane of hair. I remember Julia’s big fluffy dress, her sprawled across the grass in the front yard, with this intricate updo. I’ve been working with Julia ever since that day.The Julia Effect There’s no doubt that Julia’s hair is iconic. After her breakout role in Pretty Woman in the early ’90s, everyone wanted that curly, wavy red hair — it was emblematic of the decade. So, of course, when I started working with her regularly, my other clients asked me to give them “Julia Roberts” hair. She’s been a brunette, a redhead, a blonde, and has had long hair and short cuts — she’s not afraid to experiment. Her hairstyle has to be something that’s easy and effortless, not contrived.> View this post on Instagram> > tbt bts fun moment with Julia Roberts ❤️ at the cannes film festival 2016 ? @elizabethstewart1 sergenormantmusthaves> > A post shared by Serge Normant (@sergenormant) on May 17, 2018 at 11:21am PDTThe magic of Julia’s hair is that people catch a feeling from it. They look at a picture of her — whether it’s bright blonde and sleek or messy and held up with a claw clip — and there’s something that people identify with. It’s her glow, and it’s infectious. You might love her blonde and think that the color is amazing, but then the next day she could be back to red and you forget about the blonde. She’s magical that way.It’s All In The Prep I always say that good hair starts with a good haircut. You need a style that suits you and works with your natural texture. You have to have a good rapport with your stylist, because they’re the expert and can help you find the right products for your hair cut and texture. Always bring photos to your stylist, because it will give them a vision of what you’re looking for. Even if they can’t achieve the exact look on your hair, a photo can convey a feeling and that feeling is so important.> View this post on Instagram> > First day in Toronto! @juliaroberts ✨for @homecomingtv press Styling @elizabethstewart1 Makeup @jilliandempsey nails @mazzhanna @engelmanandco TIFF> > A post shared by Serge Normant (@sergenormant) on Sep 7, 2018 at 9:44am PDTFor Julia’s hair, and on almost all of my clients, I’ll use my hair repair treatment. I think of hair treatments like moisturizer for the skin: They help your hair regain any lost elasticity and rehab any dryness. Then, there’s the volumizing mousse, which doesn’t dry hard so you can use it on hair that you’re air drying or blow drying to elevate the volume. I always use the spray from my Dream Big line — it gives your hair a little extra texture and hold. Then, I finish with either a dry oil for some extra shine or some hairspray. I always advise not to use too many products, and to layer them very lightly. It’s really easy to have great hair — it’s all about how you wear it.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.

Ever since the pandemic took hold, a number of interesting fashion trends have come to light. There was the QuarantinePillowChallenge, which involved influencers swapping out mini dresses for pillows and accessorizing with Gucci and Chanel belts and bags. Next up: JacquemusAtHome, a strangely satisfying viral trend, coined by designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, that involved making bras out of croissants and heels out of tropical fruit and toilet rolls. Then there was the nightgown dress trend, as if we needed yet another excuse not to get dressed in the morning. But the latest fashion item to garner attention during the pandemic is not entirely surprising: mask accessories. If you’ve spent time on Instagram lately, you’ve probably noticed an uptick in face masks that aren’t just protective and fashionable, but also feature additional accessories, from éliou's glass-beaded chains reminiscent of Croakies to oversize ribbons that come with Collina Strada's version. Scrunchie-like "ties," chunky acetate chains, and beaded designs that go over the masks are some of the other accessories that have come to decorate this essential item lately. Ahead, see accessories that are giving masks — that we should all continue to wear to curb the spread of the virus — a stylish twist. COVID-19 has been declared a global pandemic.

Will all the sneaker stans in the house please raise their hands? Oh, wow — that’s a lot of you. From fresh white kicks to sought-after collectible drops to super-sustainable tennies, sneaker categories are proliferating as the footwear’s popularity continues to snowball with seemingly unstoppable momentum. However, this is one type of footwear that might just be rivaling in sheer fan-favorite force (especially for fall): the hiking boot. We’ve watched these outdoorsy shoes prance down the designer runways and indie brands endlessly riff on the classic utility-style throughout these past few seasons. Although popular, not everyone is ready to commit to the hiking-boot lifestyle. So, what's a shoe to do? Make a baby with its more casual counterpart, the sneaker — or, at least, this is how we imagine the hiking sneaker was born. We went ahead and wrangled up all of these hybrid-shoe styles that we could find. Scroll on to pick your perfect fall shoe that borrows from the best of both boot and sneaker worlds.

Ten years ago, if you had asked us to put on a pair of pants that weren't skin-tight, we'd have rolled our eyes in disgust. For what seemed like forever, we gave skinny jeans and leggings our undivided attention. That is, until one day when a light appeared at the end of the tunnel and saved us from another year of wearing pants that were uncomfortably tight. A decade and a handful of half-hearted pant trends later, we've finally found a silhouette with the potential to rival the skinny jean era in a real way. Baggy pants, or as some people like to call them, puddle pants, have been on the rise for quite some time now, but it wasn't until they started popping up on every street style photographer-covered corner in New York, London, Milan, and Paris last fall that the trend became crystal clear. A year later, they're back — and the options are better than ever. From slouchy, distressed denim to loose, extra-long trousers — check out all of this fall's baggiest pant styles by clicking through the slideshow ahead.

In addition to winning the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Julia Garner also claimed the unofficial prize for the chicest glam of the entire evening. The Ozark actress took vintage styling inspiration from Chanel for both her outfit and makeup for the virtual awards show — and the result was an homage to the Jazz Age that made the 26-year-old star look like the spitting image of The Great Gatsby‘s Daisy Buchanan.Makeup artist Stoj used tones of pale rose and mauve all over to achieve the soft vintage vibe on Garner’s fair complexion, and lucky for us, the pro listed all of the makeup she used on Instagram. The standouts? Chanel’s Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow palette in Warm Memories, a beautiful combination of blush and plum shades, and Rouge Allure Lipstick in Serenity, a nude pink with a velvety finish. > View this post on Instagram> > Defending her 👑 Congratulations @juliagarnerofficial on your Emmys win last night. Thank you for letting me be apart of your special night. makeupbySTOJ @maworldgroup Thank you 😘 @chanel.beauty @welovecoco and my agent @shaecooper88 👊🏼@elizabethsaltzman @chanelofficial Hair @blakeerik emmys ozark netflix welovecoco chanel workingwithchanel juliagarner> > A post shared by STOJ💋Makeup Artist (@stoj_makeupartist) on Sep 21, 2020 at 4:37am PDTOf course, no flapper-inspired beauty look would be complete without due attention to the hair. Celebrity hairstylist Blake Erik pulled Garner’s springy blonde curls into a side part, then added a pearl hair pin to match the layered stands of pearls around her neck. Styled with her champagne silk separates, everything came together in a phenomenal above-the-waist ensemble that practically screams Roaring Twenties.At the end of the special night, Garner posted an Instagram photo thanking her entire glam team, as well as everyone she works with on Ozark. “Love to you all!! Thank you for putting a smile on my face this year,” the actress wrote in her caption. “The world is better because you are all in it. We can get through anything if we do it together.”Looking ahead, we’re thinking Garner’s at-home take on 1920s style could make for fabulous Halloween costume inspiration.
