Tips from David BabaiiNicole Kidman
Starting with clean hair, David Babaii applied his new favorite must-have product called Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment to her entire head. It is rich in moisture-restoring antioxidants, Vitamin A, E, proteins and lipids. The Pequi Oil Treatment instantly absorbs and won't weigh hair down.
Next, he blow dried Nicole's hair with the Italy Hairfashion Ionic Dryer that supplies super-fast drying power along with a large round brush to achieve a sleek straight finish. After the hair was dried, he gently back-combed the top and sides for volume and then smoothed the surface.
To begin the up-do, he swept the hair gently over, creating a faux side-part and bringing the rest of the hair to the center back and securing with a band just at the top of the nape. David wrapped the hair into an unstructured chignon and securing with bobby pins. The secret was not to over-comb or smooth the hair but to allow the hair to create a soft natural look. To finish, he used additional Pequi Oil to her bang area to define strands. For added glamour, David added a subtle decorative clip to the side.
Tips from René Fris
Best Actress winner Natalie Portman’s retro up-do evoked Forties glam – an ideal choice for the beautiful starlet. This style was perfect for Natalie, who embodies classic beauty. For this look, use a paddle brush to sweep hair into a deep side-part. Secure hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. Twist the loose hair into a tight cylinder and back up into the base of the ponytail so that it forms a figure 8. Hold the knot in place with bobby pins.
Up-and-comer Jennifer Lawrence rocked the red carpet with bold color and a sophisticated hairstyle. This clean up-do perfectly offsets Jennifer’s stunning dress choice. René suggests starting off with a smoothing serum while hair is still damp for an overall lustrous look. Try René Fris Shine Serum. Blow dry hair roughly, not completely pulling it straight. Secure dry hair into a ponytail at the back of the head. Form hair into a thick bun at the base of the ponytail. Apply hair spray to lock the look.
The lovely Amy Adams went for an edgy modern look with dark eye makeup and a high ponytail. This polished style is chic yet versatile. Begin by applying a smoothing serum to wet hair; frizz-free hair is essential for this look. Blow dry hair with a round brush and follow up with a flat iron, for a perfectly straight look. Secure hair with an elastic into a tight ponytail at the back of the head. Follow the cheekbone up to determine a good level for the base of the ponytail. Spray with hairspray for an extra sleek finish.
With her hair down in soft and sultry waves, funny gal Sofia Vergara epitomizes glamour. Her look is simple but the results are head-turning. René suggests using a thickening product to add volume. Apply product and blow dry hair with a paddle brush. Use a 2” thick curling iron to create loose waves and texture. Don’t be afraid to use hands to style waves, creating a messy yet feminine feel.
Tips from Natasha Sunshine
Start with dry straight hair. Decide on parting. Side parting adds a classic appeal. A middle parting gives a more modern feel. Mist lightly with Pureology ColourStylist StrengtheningControl zero dulling hairspray, use a fine bristle brush like a boar or Mason Pearson. Use clean long strokes to keep lumps to a minimum. Fasten an elastic band as close to the base of your scalp as possible. Mist hair again with spray and smooth over for a clean finish. For an extra polished pony, spray loose ends with Pureology ColourStylist Fortifying Heat Spray and wrap in one large hot roller for 10 minutes.
Start with damp hair, apply a nickel size of Pureology ColourStylist NourishingNectar evenly throughout. Dry thoroughly and set with large rollers wound away from the face. After rollers cool, remove and brush hair through. Leaving out the top front section, pull all the hair back into a low pony and create a side part. Finish ponytail into a bun securing with bobby pins. Brush top front section back and push forward to get a smooth swooping fringe. Spray finished style with ColourStylist StrengtheningControl zero dulling hairspray.
