In the hierarchy of celeb style, no night is bigger than the Oscars. Stylists painstakingly work for weeks to research and secure just the right dress and accessories for their clients. All that work would go to waste if the actress didn’t get the right hairstyle to complete the glamorous effect. May we never underestimate the importance of a great hairstyle when it comes to that red carpet look!
When you get it wrong, it can ruin everything and all anyone talks about is how bad your hair was. At its worst, you can look like you’re off to your aerobics class or about to clean your bathroom. Never was this more clear than on several examples at Oscars last night. Amy Adams, Renee Zellwegger and Nicole Kidman all wore their hair up. All failed badly.
They should have taken a page out of Jennifer Lawrence‘s “Silver Linings Playbook” and copied her up-do. Few could compare with the lovely polished look the Actress in a Leading Role winner achieved last night. Everything about her hair was flawless and now you (as well as Nicole, Renee and Amy) can get that look too!
We’ve got the scoop directly from Dove celebrity stylist Mark Townsend who styled Jennifer’s hair for the Oscars. Here, in Mark’s own words, is a step-by-step of how he did it:
“For Jennifer’s Oscars hair style, I started by applying a few drops of Dove Nourishing Oil Care Anti-Frizz Serum to her damp hair and combed through. This serum is loaded with natural almond and coconut oils to give the hair extra moisture and shine.”
“Next, I added a large dollop of Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Mousse to her hair and blow dried with a large round brush.
“To give the hair texture and shine I added a nickel size of Dove Style+Care Frizz-Proof Cream-Serum in my hands and then raked through the hair.
“Then, I took random pieces from each side and loosely twisted them and pinned them together at the back of the head with eight bobby pins in crosses.”
“Then, I took the remaining hair and gathered it into a loose playful bun and finished as always with Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray.”
Mark says that “Jennifer Lawrence is a dream to work with, she is so unbelievably fun and inspiring.”
Not that we had any doubt. She owned the event last night. Check out her great attitude and Mark’s handy-work (from all angles) in this video below. Watch as Jennifer gets surprised by Jack Nicholson during a live interview and meets him for the first time.
