I have some hot hair tips from celeb hair stylist Luke O'Connor. Use this information next time you find yourself getting ready for an awards show or a Vanity Fair party!
The Look: Half-up waves
Gorgeous waves are always a favorite at award shows and several super stars sported this look tonight. Angelina Jolie and Jessica Biel both radiated beauty with their loosely styled tendrils pinned half-up.
To recreate at home:Apply Suave Healthy Curls Scrunching Mousse to towel dried hair to help define waves and control frizz. Flip hair over and blow dry hair until most of the moisture is gone and hair is 85% dry. Section off the top section of hair from the center of each eyebrow back to crown, and clip out of the way. Dry remaining hair completely.
Use a 1.5 inch curling iron on two inch sections of hair and spiral wrap around iron, leaving waves loose and smooth. This should be about six to eight sections of hair. On the top section, use a medium round brush and blow dry back, straight and smooth. Back-comb for added volume and secure desired amounts of hair from either side of your face with bobby pins.
Set into place with Suave Extra Hold Hairspray.
The Look: Fashionable Side Bun
Tina Fey made Steve Martin blush and you can make your co-star go gaga! It's easy to achieve this classy, modern take on the Hollywood tradition that shined on the red carpet.
To recreate at home:For smooth and frizz-free locks, prep hair with Suave® Professionals® Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner.
Next, give hair body and control by applying Suave® Professionals® Extra Hold Styling Foam to damp hair. Gather the top layer of hair and pin up at the crown. Blow dry the rest of hair in sections using a medium round brush to lock in volume. Unpin hair at the crown and blow dry in 1 inch sections using the round brush. Blow dry bangs by rolling the hair around the brush away from the face and directed to the side for swooping side bangs. Keep side-swept bangs locked in place with Suave® Professionals® Extra Hold Gel.
Next, take a 1.5 inch curling iron to curl the large sections of hair. Finally, gather hair into a pony tail and loosely twist down to create a low chignon off to the side. Secure with pins and let loose pieces fall naturally for a look that's effortlessly chic.
The Look: Glamour Curls
Fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker showcased her sophisticated side with structured curls. The middle part gave the look a modern edge and you can make it happen at home.
To recreate at home:Stock your shower with Suave® Humectant Shampoo and Conditioner so curls will have added shine and brightness. Next, apply Suave® Professionals® Extra Hold Styling Foam to damp hair to give body and control.
Be sure to blow dry hair upside down to achieve maximum volume. Once hair is completely dry, flip back up and create a center part.
Take 1 to 1.5 inch sections of hair and spiral wrap around a 1 to 1.25 inch curling iron to create neat curls. For superior style and control, lock in the look with Suave® Professionals® Freeze Hold Hairspray.
