As I mentioned on my Twitter feed & during my live blogging on the Oscars, I thought Sandra Bullock’s hair & make-up team knocked it out the ball park on Sunday.
With such a perfect old school Hollywood glam dress (by clever Marchesa), an updo would have been too uptight for the more relaxed 21st century. Frederic Fekkai’s Adir Abergel got her look pitch perfect with a simple blow dry & a little light curling with a 1 1/4″ curling iron at the ends.*
A bright pink lip turned out to be the strongest beauty story of the night, and arguably Sandra Bullock did it best. That’ll be thanks to Chanel’s Angela Levin, and a tube of Chanel Rouge Coco in Paris.
*HOW TO GET THE LOOK: Conditioned hair is very important for any sleek style. Abergel used Fekkai Glossing Shampoo & Conditioner, leaving the conditioner on for 15 minutes. He then rinsed and towel dried the hair. Then he parted the hair in a deep side parting. Adir recommends following the arch of your brow to choose where to part your hair. He then took a large Fekkai Extra Large Round Brush and blow-dried the hair completely straight, making sure the roots were flat. He then sprayed Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray on to 2” sections of hair from roots to the end and used a flat iron to get a bone straight effect. To finish the look, Abergel took a 1 1/4” inch curling iron and lightly curled the ends of the hair for a nice slight wave , tucking the fringe behind the ear. To complete the look he added the Coiff Ultra-Light Finishing Creme to create a sleek finish.
