Sophisticate’s Blog:           Red-Carpet Hair


One of our favorite parts of watching The Academy Awards is the red carpet—the beautiful dresses, the sparkling jewels, the HAIR! We’ve got the backstage scoop on three hot looks from the evening…

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

ADELE

Styled for the red carpet by hairstylist Michael Ashton using John Frieda

STEP BY STEP
1. Towel-dry wet hair to remove excess moisture applying John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray on mid-lengths and ends.
2. Flip hair over and using a blow-dryer, blast hot air down the hair shaft for instant lift at the roots and thickness through the rest of the hair.
3. When hair is about 80% dry, flip your back over and smooth large sections with a medium round brush.
4. Section the hair into quarters. On one quarter, apply a medium-large curling iron tto achieve a contemporary and feminine texture. Next, set in hot rollers. Once cool, carefully brush through hair with a natural bristle brush.
5. Continue for the remaining three sections, ensuring that as you have finished curling each section you pin it in a barrel curl using a sectioning clip while it cools and sets.
6. After 5-10 minutes, remove the sectioning clips and gently tousle hair. Pull half of the hair back and tease at the crown, securing pieces together in the back of the head. Leave down two small sections of hair to frame the face. Mist John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray for a long-lasting finish.

CHARLIZE THERON

Styled for the red carpet by hairstylist Enzo Angileri using Wella Professionals

STEP BY STEP
1. After washing and conditioning hair, apply Wella Professionals Natural Volume Styling Mousse to wet hair and direct to shape the silhouette.
2. Blow-dry hair with a diffuser until it’s 100% dry and in place.
3. Rake hair down with a brush following the part and shape of the head, leaving volume at the crown.
4. Use Wella Professionals Shape Shift Molding Gum to mold the hair and create a texturized look and feel.
5. Finish with a light mist of Wella Professionals Shimmer Delight Shine Spray to give hair luminosity.

ISLA FISHER

Styled for the red carpet by hairstylist Marcus Francis using Wella Professionals

STEP BY STEP
1. To wet hair, apply Wella Professional Flowing Form Smoothing Balm section by section and blow-dry with a medium size round brush.
2. Create your part for the section you’re pulling back by starting at the arch of each eyebrow, and continue back to the crown. Flat-iron each section from roots to ends.
3. Secure the section pulled back by using a bobby pin on each side at the crown. Slide the pin underneath the top layer of the hair to anchor without slipping.
4. Use a quarter size amount of Wella Professionals Mirror Polish Shine Serum and take through with your fingers to seal the ends and add shine.
5. For added hold, spray Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray at the front and at the section pulled back.
