Laini Reeves used Abba Pure Performance Hair Care – a line of vegan, gluten-free, and sulfate-free products – to style actress Amy Adams for the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

Reeves was inspired by Adam's Versace gown to create sexy loose waves and a braided side part.


Step 1: Start with wet hair and create a severe side part with a thin comb.

Step 2: Protect the hair! Apply Abba Pure Performance Hair Care Thermal Protect Spray from roots to ends.

Step 3: Next, work Abba Pure Performance Hair Care Style Spray from roots to ends to create a natural, brushable hold.

Step 4: Take a thin section of hair from the shorter side of the part, divide the section in three, and begin to braid. As you continue to braid, add small sections of hair into the braid.

Step 5: Secure the braid at the nape of the neck with a small bobby pin.

Step 6: Blow dry the hair. Then, begin wrapping small sections of hair around a 2” curling iron barrel.

Step 7: Loosen the curls with a flat brush.

Step 8: Spray a firm finishing hairspray to secure the look.
