Celebrity stylist Sean James shares his step-by-step “How-To” for the design of Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture Oscar Winner Jamie Lee Curtis for the 95th Annual Academy Awards.
Actress Jamie Lee Curtis' long-time hairstylist Sean James partnered with FHI Heat for the design and execution of this look. To achieve her iconic pixie hairstyle, James used two key FHI Heat hair tools and three styling products.
Step 1: On cleansed, towel-dried hair, spray FHI Heat’s Stylus High Altitude Root Lift Spray evenly across the head to deliver lift and volume.
Step 2: Using FHI Heat’s Innovator Pro Power Speed Dryer, and a small round brush, lift and bend the hair from the root.
Step 3: Use an FHI Heat Platform Plus Curve 1” Flat Iron on the fringe area of hair to piece and spike it out, while still maintaining the root lift achieved from the dryer and round brush.
Step 4: Apply a small dab of FHI Heat Stylus Total Control Hairstyling Gel between fingers, and manipulate crown hair spiked pieces for definition and separation.
Step 5: Generously spray with FHI Heat Stylus Stay Beautiful Light Hold Hairspray to lock in the hair definition for the night.
