Nicole Kidman at 2011 Academy Awards

Get this Flirty Ponytail

Celebrity hairstylist David Babaii, who has worked with Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker just to name a few, was Nicole Kidman's stylist for the 2011 Oscars today. For this year's Academy Awards he wanted to achieve a "Playful Ponytail" with a hint of Bridget Bardot for Nicole Kidman's 2011 Oscar look.

To Achieve Nicole Kidman's Oscar Hair

David always begins every red carpet look with clean hair followed by applying Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment (available at Sephoa) to her entire head. Pequi Oil is derived from the Pequi fruit, known for centuries as the beauty secret of the Amazon Rainforest. Once applied, David is amazed at how Nicole's beautiful red hair color looks so fresh and vibrant. The Pequi Oil Treatment also instantly absorbs into hair, leaving it smooth and shiny. David then sectioned off a bang and cut a French fringe to frame the face. Next, he blow dried Nicole's hair with the IT&LY HAIRFASHION Ionic Dryer that supplies super-fast drying power along with a large round brush. At the bang area, he gently bumped the ends under. After the hair was dried, he applied an additional amount of Pequi Oil to create a smooth and shiny surface. To begin the "Playful Ponytail" updo, he used his hands to sweep the hair into a ponytail creating a slight bump at the crown and securing with a band. To finish the French fringe, David added additional Pequi Oil to his fingers to define.
