Get Anne Hathaway and Scarlett Johansson’s Oscar Hair With Fekkai Products!

This year for the 83nd Annual Academy Awards, four of the most sought after hairstyles seen on the red carpet were created exclusively by Fekkai stylists using Fekkai products. For information on the hairstylist’s inspirations and the products used to achieve the look, see below:

Frederic Fekkai’s Adir Abergel tended to the tresses of Host, Anne Hathaway

INSPIRATION: A modern take on an Edwardian influenced style accented with a bohemian flair; a soft, loose style with beautiful shine.

HOW TO:

1. Begin by parting the hair down the center and apply Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume Styling Whip to the hair from roots ends

2. Blow-dry the hair using Fekkai Round Brush.

3. Next, pull hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, making sure to cover the ears.

4. Then twist the ponytail into a loose knot.

5. The key is keeping it loose for a touch of bohemian flair. It’s almost like a draping around the face with wispy pieces of hair coming outsoftly.

6. Finish the look by spraying the Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray.

INSPIRATION: Duffy sought to bring out ‘the real Scarlett Johansson’ by creating a young, sexy, modern shag with dry texture.

HOW TO:

1) Begin by applying Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume™ Styling. Whip to towel-dried hair, working the product in from roots to ends.

2) Dry hair using Fekkai Classic Brush to create loose, tousled waves for the textured effect.

3) Apply Fekkai Full Blown Volume™ Lifting Hairspray to roots to prep the foundation

4) At the nape of the neck, spritz hair with Fekkai Coiff™ Océanique Tousled Wave Spray

5) Using a 1 ½ inch curling iron wrap 2-3 inch sections of hair around the barrel of the iron, leaving ends out. Continue to repeat this action throughout, bearing in mind the way the root falls.

6) Take a hairdryer with nozzle attachment and blast the root of the hair for hold and volume

7) Run fingers through the hair to break-up the waves.

8) Clamp the ends with a flat iron to flatten the curl, creating an imperfect, sleeker wave.

9) Finish the style with Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray to give a modern, edgy look.

Awesome Fekkai news – their products are now available at Target! Woohoo! (It’s all I use on my hair). You can also buy them online here.

Sometimes it’s worth it to splurge – Fekkai’s Glossing Line truly is the best!

I’m all about saving money – and buying beauty products that fit my budget. One place I NEVER splurge – is on shampoo and conditioner. I’ve found products that are okay – for $5 or less. And so when I tried Fekkai’s Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner, I think I could hear my hair follicles rejoicing.

I hate how much I love this shampoo and conditioner. How will I ever be able to wean myself off it!

One thing I will say for all these products below is even though they are a bit more spendy – they last a whole lot longer than most products. You don’t need to use as much, so they will last twice as long! I’ve had the Brilliant Glossing Sheer Mist for over a year now, and I’ve only used about half the bottle. So it’s worth the $$ for sure! Would I steer you wrong?

Fekkai’s Glossing Shampoo is a shine-enhancing shampoo infused with pure olive oil extract which gently cleanses and adds luster to normal or dull hair. ($21 – $35) Follow the shampoo with the Glossing Conditioner, which is enriched with pure olive oil and moisturizers, which adds luster and vibrance to normal or dull hair.($21 -$35)

After washing and conditioning, I follow with Glossing Cream which HANDS DOWN is the best styling cream I’ve ever used. Fekkai’s Glossing Cream is a styling cream with pure olive oil that eliminates frizz and adds moisture and shine to all hair types. While I may skimp on shampoo and conditioner – I NEVER skimp on product. This cream is worth every single penny I spend on it. ($21 -$27)

After drying my hair, I use a couple squirts of Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist, and my hair looks amazing. It’s like it’s not even my hair!

Feather-light mist delivers an even veil of shine with encapsulated olive oil plus all day long protection. This last impression – leaves sheer shine to finish any style.

Fekkai’s legendary shine collection infuses new Encapsulated Shine-Release Complex in its winnning olive oil formula to renew shine all day, strand by strand, minute by minute. ($9 – $23)

Why Eclipse’s Kristen Stewart Dyed Her Hair Lighter

Although Kristen Stewart, 20, is currently traveling the world to promote The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (out Wednesday), the actress is already gearing up for her next role in the film adaptation of a classic Jack Kerouac novel.

“Kristen is preparing to play Mary Lou in the 1950′s drama, On the Road,” her stylist, Frederic Fekkai’s Adir Abergel, tells UsMagazine.com. “I wanted to bring her hair closer to her natural color: blonde.”

To achieve the “flirty and feminine” hue, Adir teamed up with Clairol celebrity stylist Marie Robinson and pulled images from the ’50s for inspiration.

Stewart debuted her new look during a Monday appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.

I think she looks stunning with this hair color! She should keep it!
