Marion Cotillard at the Oscars luncheon
From the luxurious waves of Katherine Heigl to the face-framing tendrils of Ellen Page’s updo, the look of the night at the 80th Academy Awards was soft texture. The look was retro Hollywood, complementing the sleek, brightly hued gowns. Curly actresses, including Keri Russell and Nicole Kidman, opted for smooth updos rather than rocking their curls.
For curly Kelly Preston’s romantic style, Redken stylist Jonathan Hanousek first blow-dried her hair. Then he divided each section around a medium curling iron. Once curls were set, he lightly brushed out with fingers. Hanousek then separated one-inch section at the front of head from the rest of the hair and created a side part only at the front section. Then taking the back section, he gathered her hair into a half ponytail, and let pieces fall out naturally.
