THE OSCARS: Reese Witherspoon's Cascading Side Waves

Lauren Salapatek | February 26, 2013 | 2:48 PM

While we may not pay much attention to who wins the awards, all of us are looking at the hair and Reese Witherspoon let us have it at the 2013 Oscars with her glamed style. The 36-year-old Oscar-winning actress looked stunning in a Louis Vuitton dress and jewelry. When Witherspoon was on the Red Carpet she told E! that she credit's her shiny, flawless hair to just having a baby! What do you think of her hair? We want to know on MODERN's Facebook.

MODERN asked James Gartner, Pravana Artistic Council Member, to reveal how he would achieve Reese Witherspoon's glam look:

TRY IT:

STEP 1: Start with a deep side parting on wet hair. Section into four quadrants and blow dry down the hair shaft to achieve smoothing.

STEP 2: Start in the nape and wave the hair using a large barrel curling iron, wrapping hair down and under. Stay two-inches away from the scalp as to not create volume on the roots.

STEP 3: Continue to the sides.

STEP 4: Take a boar bristle brush and brush out the set. Be sure to rake some Pravana Silk Degrees Shine Serum through the ends and finish by spraying the completed look with Pravana's Super Shape Hair Spray.
