It's one thing to walk the Red Carpet at The Oscars but quite another to be a presenter.  Jennifer Aniston did both and she did it in a vibrant red gown from Valentino and with hair styled by Living Proof stylist Chris McMillan.

"Jen always wears a very narrow, black, sexy look and this was a new approach to a dress.  She wanted hair and makeup to be natural, healthy and beautiful.”

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “First, I washed the hair with Living Proof Full Shampoo and Conditioner. I then applied Prime Style Extender to wet hair and massaged through for a lasting style, while still allowing the hair to have movement. Using a large round brush, I blew out the hair straight with a deep, side bang. Finally, I applied Hold Flexible Hairspray to the roots for height and lightly sprayed the rest of the hair.”

FINAL WORD: “She’ll be one of the only people there who is able to actually touch her hair.  I created a look that would last the entire night, from the red carpet to when she presents.“
