THE OSCARS: Kerry Washington's Voluminous Waves by Moroccanoil

Lauren Salapatek | February 25, 2013 | 12:32 PM

Kerry Washington, star of Django Unchained, made a glittering Oscar red carpet entrance wearing a glamorous coral Miu Miu gown and hair designed by celebrity stylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew for Moroccanoil.

“When I saw the amazing goddess gown that Kerry was wearing, I knew her hair had to be long and classic,” said Takisha Sturdivant-Drew. To complement the elegant design, Sturdivant-Drew highlighted volume and movement in the hair look, letting it flow down and behind the shoulders. She also added touch of fullness at the sides, and flattering height at the crown to emphasize a soft modern mood.


STEP 1: "I first shampooed Kerry’s hair with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner."

STEP 2: "Next, I added Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse to large sections for soft volume, emphasizing the root area. Since Kerry’s hair is naturally curly, we straightened it first by blow drying with a comb attachment. I then went back and blow dried different sections of the hair for added volume at the root."

STEP 3: "Using a 1½ “ curling iron, I created large, loose S-waved sections, starting at the nape and working up to sides and top."

STEP 4: "After sectioning off the top and back of the hair, I teased the crown and sides for lift and volume, then combed over the hair lightly and brought it back down."

STEP 5: "To hold the style without any stiffness, I sprayed on Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong from about 3” away. This product works really well for this look because it’s so lightweight, won’t flake, and it holds the hair while allowing it to move."
