Wednesday night was the New York premiere of HBO’s “And Just Like That,” the Sex and the City reboot we’ve all been waiting for. The actors – old and new – brought their A-game to the red carpet. While we often hear about Sarah Jessica Parker’s look because she’s the most avant-garde, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis also killed. And we got the scoop on their red carpet hair and makeup looks.
It’s rare these days to see so many women over 50 on the red carpet. This should not be rare, but it is. That’s why it’s even more interesting to find out which products the female glam teams use on them. Because hair, makeup and skin care are different for women over 50 – even over 40 sometimes. Aging skin and hair have different needs.

Here is the truth. Hairstylist Rebekah Forecast has worked with Nixon for two decades. They met during the third season of Sex and the city. “I can’t wait to get my hands back in Cynthia’s hair,” she said in a statement. Earlier in the week, she gifted Nixon this graduated pixie haircut, which went perfectly with her orange. Christophe John Rogerthe dress of. For the premiere, the actor wanted the actor to look “chic and modern,” she said. “But we’re still referring to the past in one way or another, so there’s a Twiggy, Mary Quant-ish element in this new cut.”
Because Nixon has thin hair, Forecast used the Better Not Younger Lift Me Up Hair Thickener ($ 34 to Ulta) on damp hair. She added the brand’s No Remorse heat and tame spray ($ 32 at Ulta) on its ends before brushing with a GHD hairdryer. “I blow the hair upward at first, for volume, and then move in the direction I want the hair to fall,” she said. Here is a trick you can try at home.
Once dry, she used her GHD flat iron to give Nixon smooth locks and added Better Not Younger Superpower Hair & Scalp Fortifying Serum ($ 47 to Ulta) for extra shine. She finished with the brand’s Fresh Start Scalp Renewing Dry Shampoo ($ 29 at Zipporah). “It fights natural oils and gives the look stability and hold,” she said.
With Nixon’s hair done, it was makeup artist Matin Maulawizada’s turn. He prepped her skin by giving her a relaxing facial massage using the Pause Well-Aging Fascia Stimulation Tool ($ 97.75 on Amazon – on sale!), With the brand’s Collagen Boosting Moisturizer ($ 61.20 at Amazon) and Eye Renewal Treatment ($ 66.30 on Amazon). “It circulates the blood and eliminates the extra bags,” he said in a statement. He finished his skin with the Pause Well-Aging Moisture Lock Ultra Hydrator ($ 65 at Aging well break) and used Code8 Beauty for her makeup. Magnificent!
Hairdresser Anthony Campbell was responsible for Davis’ hair and he also used Better Not Younger hair products. He wanted to give her “clean, sleek, tucked in waves” to complement his custom Jason Wu dress and we’d say he nailed it. The brand’s Lift Me Up Hair Thickener ($ 34 at Ulta) aid. “I wanted it a little more sleek on the top and voluminous on the bottom where the wave was, so I kept the top flat and used a round brush to give it more volume at the ends, making them roll off the brush to give them a little bend, ”Campbell said.
For added volume, he applied Fresh Start Scalp Renewing Dry Shampoo ($ 29 at Zipporah), then adjust the wave with a curling iron. “To get the wave, I run it through and then turn the iron away from the face,” he said. “And then I take the iron out and twist it away from the face again and just slide the end with the iron to give it a little kink – not a curl or curl.” (Yes, you can totally DIY this for your next big event.) To tame frizz, he added a tiny Little Hair Redemption Repairing Butter Mask ($ 35 to Ulta).
Genevieve Herr put on Davis makeup, prepping her skin with Pause Aging well products and the application of Lancôme makeup.
Equally beautiful! We can’t wait to see these ladies keep killing him on the red carpet now that Sex and the city is back.
