HOW TO: Naomi Watts' "Grace Kelly" Moment by Giannandrea

Celebrity stylist Giannandrea worked with products and tools from Macadamia Natural Oil (MNO) to create a sleek, chic style for Naomi Watts at the 86th Academy Awards.

“The inspiration behind Naomi’s look was Grace Kelly. I wanted that Grace Kelly elegance that Naomi possesses to shine through,” Giannandrea explained.

STEP ONE: Blow-dry hair with large round brush. Giannandrea used Macadamia Natural Oil’s large Boar Hot Curling Brush (43mm).
STEP TWO: Separate front of hair into 1-inch sections and roll in 3 Velcro rollers to create volume on top, spraying Control hairspray.
STEP THREE: Let rollers sit and flat iron hair, using Healing Oil Treatment as a finisher to create shine down the side and all the way through the length.
STEP FOUR: Unroll rollers and brush hair back all the way through the ears, creating a deep side part
STEP FIVE: Finish with Control hairspray

“Control hairspray is great for award shows as it is resistant to humidity and free from nasty buildup,” Giannandrea explained. “We wanted a little more shape for the dress so I decided to continue with the trend of sleek, chic and straight with some height."
