Kristen looked amazing last night!

At the 84th annual Academy Awards, Kristen Wiig, a first-time nominee for “Original Screenplay” for Bridesmaids, stole the style spotlight. Below, Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend shares his tips for women looking to achieve her red carpet look at home. Mark used products from the NEW Dove Style+Care collection that nourish and protect hair for long-lasting style. The products are officially available nationwide March 1st.

Here is how to get Kristen’s textured waves:

“I was in love with Kristen’s J. Mendel dress as soon as I saw it; I was so inspired by the silhouette and color. We wanted Kristen’s hair to be full with voluminous waves and have an edgy and sexy texture”

  • - “I started by applying a large dollop of Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse and blow dried the hair with a round brush.
  • - I then took 3-inch sections of hair and sprayed each section with Dove Style+Care Thermal Replenishment Spray and then wrapped the hair around a 1 1/2 inch FHI Heat curling iron.
  • - When all of her hair had been curled, I took a small amount of Dove Style+Care Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum in my hands and rubbed them together and then I raked the product through the hair to break up the curls and give the hair shine and definition. I’m beyond obsessed with this product. It gives you the nourishment of a cream and the shine of a serum in one bottle!
  • - I finished her look by spraying Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray all over while scrunching the hair with my fingers; this will ensure that the hair is in place all night and give the hair great sexy waves.”
