Award Shows are a great time to get inspiration for a new look! All that glitz and glamour……not to mention the hair styles!

Our own Brand Ambassador Franco Della Grazia recently showed Marie Claire’s Brittney H Levine how to make three of our favorite looks from the Oscars red carpet: Hailee Steinfeld’s chic bun, Emma Stone’s soft waves, and Olivia Culpo’s sleek pony.

Here’s how you can get the look at home!

Chic Bun:

  2. Blend a mousse or texturizing spray into the hair
  3. Blow dry directionally towards where you are fastening the ponytail, make sure the ends of the hair have a slight bend to it.
  4. Separate the top front of your hair into a triangle (From the ends of your eye brows)
  5. Put the remaining hair into a ponytail
  6. Separate sections of the ponytail and use a 2 inch curling iron to add bend and movement
  7. Then use a light hold hairspray and a small dressing brush, and loosely wrap each section around the pony tail to build shape.
  8. Using a round brush or larger curling iron add movement and height to the top triangle section
