Living Proof hairstylist, Chris McMillen knows best..."...so we wanted her hair to make her feel comfortable. I created a look that would last the entire night, from the red carpet to when she presents. “
“First, I washed the hair with Living Proof Full Shampoo and Conditioner. I then applied Prime Style Extender to wet hair and massaged through for a lasting style, while still allowing the hair to have movement. Using a large round brush, I blew out the hair straight with a deep, side bang. Finally, I applied Hold Flexible Hairspray to the roots for height and lightly sprayed the rest of the hair.”

Also Oscar worthy...glamorous nails stole the spotlight. BeautyPress.com reports that Adele and Rosie Huntington Whiteley, turned to celebrity manicurist, Kimmie Kyees, to complete their look. Kyees relied on color-leader Sally Hansen to create signature nail styles for this red carpet moment.
Adele, nominated for best original song, “Skyfall” from the latest James Bond picture layered Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color in Quick Sand under Complete Salon Manicure in Almost Almond.
Whiteley, English model and actress, wore a custom-mixed color with beaded adornments to create a chic and trendsetting nail. Kyees created her look by painting one layer of Complete Salon Manicure in Mudslide under two coats of Complete Salon Manicure in Sheer Ecstasy. While nails were still wet, Kyees applied a pearl and a gold metallic bead to the bottom center of each nail.
