THE OSCARS: Recreate Naomi Watts' Chic Waves
Hairstylist Jonathan Colombini has worked with celebs such as Laura Prepon, Fergi, and AnnaLynne McCord. After watching last night's Oscars, he provides some easy steps for recreating one of the red carpet's most head-turning styles-- Naomi Watts' chic waves.
After blow drying using Joico's Power Whip whipped foam from root through mid-shaft and ends, into the hair to protect and smooth, add a side part that's just a bit off from center. Take about 1/2 inch in diameter subsections and wrap around a barrel curling iron, hold for about 5 seconds. Unwrap without dropping the hair from your hand. Slightly pull down the hair from the ends to relax the curl and get a much looser wave. Continue throughout the entire head. Use a bit of Joico Matte Grip emulsified on the palm of your hands, adding it through the hair in a raking motion to give that “piece-y” look. Finally spray Joico Humidity Blocker to block any frizz, so your “piece-y” waves are still shaped and perfect for a red-carpet night.
TIP: “Adding the ear tuck gives the look that perfect amount of chicness that is to be expected on the red carpet – it’s something so simple, yet it can change the look and feel of the style entirely,” said Colombini.
