Scarlett Johansson arrived at the Late Show with David Letterman yesterday, looking impressively fierce with a vintage inspired hairstyle and bold red lipstick.

So get your curling tongs and lip liners out, because here's how to steal that ScarJo style.

How to do a victory roll


Step 1: Prep your hair by adding loose waves to the lengths using a wand or wide barrelled curling tong, then gently brushing them out.

Step 2: You now need to create a smooth side-sweep for the roll, so take a front section of hair from one side, around 3 to 4 inches wide, and blow dry it in the direction you want it to go.

Step 3: Using a curling tong, the wider the better depending on the length of your hair, tong the section in a forwards direction, then pin the curl until it cools down.

Step 4: Once your curl has set, brush it gently (this will add volume and loosen the ringlet), before rolling it back up and pinning in place using kirby grips that match your hair colour.

Tip: The roll can take some practice, so take it slowly using your fingers as a 'scissor shaped' clamp.

Step 5: ScarJo has added a second twist to her hair beneath the roll, to keep the look neat and off the face. To add that part, simply section off the hair above your ear, twist it back and pin underneath your loose waves.

Perfect red lipstick


Finish the look with a glossy red lip like Scarlett's, oversized sunglasses and a bucket load of attitude. For tips on applying your killer lippy, check out our guide to perfect red lipstick.
