REESE WITHERSPOON
Presenter Reese Witherspoon’s retro ponytail evoked Sixties mod fashion on the red carpet. To begin, apply a texturizing and lifting spray to hair and blow dry using a large round brush. Make sure to really lift hair at roots, creating epic volume which is essential to the look. Next, use a 1 and a half-inch curling iron to create loose waves and movement. Gather the hair up into a ponytail high up at the back of the head. As you do this, push hair forward to create lift at the crown. Use bobby pins to keep the ponytail in place. Set the whole look off with a coat of maximum hold hairspray.

MILA KUNIS
Black Swan star Mila Kunis looked positively gorgeous in this prom-esque do. Begin by parting the hair deeply to the side. Use a ¾-inch curling iron to create a wavy, tousled texture throughout hair. Allow a top section to drape loosely across half the forehead, gather the rest of hair together at the nape of the neck. Twist hair up and into a loose bun underneath its base, securing with bobby pins. Apply a shine boosting hairspray to finish the look.

GWYNETH PALTROW
Best Song performer Gwyneth Paltrow’s sleek hair complemented her shimmery form-fitting gown perfectly. The star’s modern style looked sensational on the Red Carpet, but is also versatile enough to rock virtually anywhere. For this look, apply a shine serum throughout wet locks and blow dry straight with a concentrated nozzle attachment on the blow dryer. Part hair down the middle and style hair in sections with a 1-inch flattening iron. Finish the look with a shine boosting hairspray for a polished look.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE
20-year-old best actress nominee, Jennifer Lawrence, looked hip and sexy with long layered waves. This look is simple but the results are head-turning. Begin by running a thickening lotion through damp hair. Blow dry using a paddle brush. Use a 2-inch curling iron to create sultry loose waves. Feel free to use hands to create more body and movement. Finish the look off with a medium-hold hair spray.

HOW TO:

1) Create the foundation for the style by applying Fekkai Coiff™ Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel and the Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless™ Smooth Finish Serum.

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.
