Oscar’s audience will surely remember John Travolta’s name faux pas or Ellen DeGeneres’ pizza party and Twitter selfie at Sunday night’s 86th Annual Academy Awards, but it’s always the fashion, hair and beauty that stands out from the red carpet. The Hair Care Examiner received an exclusive email from the celebrity hairstylists of Kristin Chenoweth and Sarah Paulson with tips to recreate their Oscar-worthy hairstyles from the 2014 Academy Awards.
The Oscars were anything but boring as celebrities gathered inside the Dolby Theater at the Hollywood and Highland Center on March 2, and it seems that Hollywood has taken a cue from the runway and was swept away with glam side parts at the 86th Annual Academy Awards. Actresses Sarah Paulson and Kristin Chenoweth captivated Oscar’s red carpet with sleek and perfectly un-perfect locks, styled by artists that used L’Oréal Professionnel hair care products.
Below are celebrity hairstyle tips to achieve their luxurious, trendy, yet edgy looks, perfect for the red carpet or your formal affair as seen on Sarah Paulson and Kristin Chenoweth at the 2014 Academy Awards.
Sarah Paulson, “12 Years a Slave” and “American Horror Story”, was coiffed for the Oscars by celebrity hairstylist, Lona Vigi. Vigi gave depth and perspective to the glitz and glamour of the 38-year-old actress’ gown and modernized her classic red carpet silhouette with an unexpected yet elegant style.
Vigi’s celebrity hairstylist’s tip for perfect red carpet hair: Use L’Oréal Professionnel Life Extrême on roots and comb through the hair, and then blow-dry it with a round brush. It is essential to give body throughout the hair, especially on a rainy day to prevent it from falling flat.
Lona used L’Oréal Professionnel Lift Extrême, Perfect Shimmer, Infinium #3, and Mythic Oil Nourishing Oil to perfect Sarah Paulson’s Academy Award hairstyle.
Kristin Chenoweth’s short haircut is gaining length, so celebrity hairstylist Jonathan Hanousek created a playful long layered pixie with side-swept bangs that highlighted the 45-year-old Broadway star’s signature cocktail of refined whimsy.
Hanousek’s celebrity hairstylist tip to create perfect red carpet hair: For short, fine hair like Kristin Chenoweth’s, go back in after hair is set and spray L’Oréal Professionnel Fresh Dust dry shampoo to build volume and texture without weighing the hair down.
For Chenoweth’s Oscar hair, Hanousek used L’Oréal Professionnel True Grip, Mythic Oil Nourishing Oil, Volumetry Root Spray and Infinium #3.
The L'Oreal Professionnel hair care products used on Krisitin Chenoweth and Sarah Paulson at the Academy Awards can be purchased in fine salons.
