Kristin Cavallari's entire look for the 2018 Academy Awards seemed straight out of a fairy tale.

“Kristin and I wanted to complement her dress by making the hair soft and pretty," celebrity hairstylist Riawna Capri says. "A princess vibe with a little spice.”

Here are the Steps:

  1. Nourish and protect hair with Biolage R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo, Biolage R.A.W. Color Care Conditioner
  2. On damp hair, apply Biolage R.A.W. Heat Styling Primer for heat protection. Blow dry hair
  3. Prep hair with Biolage R.A.W. Frizz Control Styling Spray along with Biolage R.A.W. Texturizing Styling Spray for a smooth but separated defined style
  4. Use Biolage Bodifying Styling Jelly to add more volume and texture at the root
  5. Pull section of hair back while spraying Biolage R.A.W. Texturizing Styling Spray and pin in place for separation with small clips to set hair for a “Mohawk” updo
  6. Pull sides beneath the Mohawk to the back of head; make a knot and pin in place
  7. Make a small bun at the nape of the neck; take hair from middle section knot and wrap around bottom bun
  8. Ensure the remaining hair from the Mohawk lays softly twisted around side of bun 
  9. Leave small pieces of hair that fall out of bun down for added softness
