Queen Latifah’s Oscars Hair and Hair Style!

queenlatifah

Queen Latifah looked amazing on the red carpet with her slicked back hair.  Julie Baker, Quenn Latifah’s hair stylist told StyleBell that “Latifah’s dress is very elegant, modern and chic, and her hair needed to complement this, so we decided on a modern chignon which features very smooth hair, a side part, bangs that swoop down in front, a low bun in the back that is off to the side.”  StyleBell must agree that Baker did a fanstastic job.  Wondering what flat iron Baker used on Queen Latifah?  It was no other than the FHI Heat styling iron.  Buy FHI Heat here plus get $20 off today!

Angelina Jolie’s Oscar Hair Style

I know everyone must be wondering how to get the fabulous Oscar red carpet hairstyle that we saw on Angelina Jolie! Angelina’s hair was amazing and picture perfect at the Academy Awards. StyleBell is here to uncover the her flawless hairstyle. One of my favs, David Babii, styled both Angelina Jolie and Nicole Kidman’s Oscar night hair styles. Read how David created Angelina’s ‘do.

How to Get Angelina Jolie’s Hair

1. “To achieve this romantic cascade of curls, I sprayed her entire head with David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray and scrunched it into the hair. This gives just the right texture and hold.”

2. “Next, I dried her hair by dividing her tresses into three sections: top, sides and back leaving the nape area free. Taking small sections starting at the nape, use a blowdryer with a nozzle attachment and finish the drying process with a large round brush to smooth hair straight.”

3. “At the crown area, I sprayed David Babaii for WildAid Volcanic Ash Root Amplifier to the root area and down the hair shaft. Then, I dried this section with a jumbo round brush to add lift and volume.”

4. “Once dry, I sectioned the hair again using the same sectioning process as I did for blow drying. Using the David Babaii for WildAid Styling Iron, I once again sectioned the hair into three sections: top, sides and back leaving the nape area free.”

5. “To curl, use the Styling Iron to create “ribbon curls” by taking small “V” shaped sections. To achieve, wrap the hair around and inside the styling iron close to the scalp area and pull the iron down (similar to curling ribbon).”

**Note: Using “V” shaped sections eliminates the appearance of parting in the hair.**

6. “After curling the entire head, I smoothed some of the curls with a brush while leaving some intact.”

7. “At the crown area, I back-brushed the hair at the scalp area only, sprayed some additional Volcanic Ash Root Amplifier and gently smoothed the surface not to remove too much of the back-brushing.”

8. “Next, to create her half-up, half down look, I brushed the sides up and back and secured with pins.”

9. “To complete the back, I ran my fingers up several curls to create volume and variations in texture. For a long but natural lasting hold, I used David Babaii for WildAid Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray.”

2008 Oscar Hair Highlights: Casual Chic

Marion CotillardI was so geared up for the Academy Awards last night. Watching my favorite celebs all decked out in the most glamorous gowns, dripping with jewels, and perfectly coiffed as they sashay down the red carpet oozing fabulosity. This year’s hair focus seemed less glamour goddess and more casual chic. Lots of simple ponytails, sweeping side parts and choppy bangs. For the most part, I liked the hair styles – think straight without being overly slick or polished. Of course there were a few “what was her stylist thinking?” moments that I had to GASP over, but even those are all in good fun. Gossiping over the flops is part of the whole armchair Oscar experience! Plus, I want to be prepared for those entertainment show recaps don’t I?

Here are the hairstyling highlights of the evening and my own award-winners:

Pretty Ponys– Everyone from Miley Cyrus to Cameron Diaz pulled a pony. Smooth but not sleek, posh but not polished. Sophisticated, but not serious. Who rocked it: Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway.

Sweeping Side Parts–  A side part can be very flattering, especially when the hair slightly covers one eye ala Veronica Lake. Slightly ‘come hither’ without being overtly sexy. Who swept it best: Amy Adams, Marion Cotillard (pictured).

Controlled Curls– Though not too many carefree curls last night, I say kudos to Katherine Heigl and Julie Christie. My favorite was Diane Lane, she chose Hollywood glamour and it showed last night – absolutely curl-licious.

Beautiful Buns– These starlets were spotted sporting stylish buns in and out of the oven – Jessica Alba, Nicole Kidman. My pick for most becoming bun of the evening: Heidi Klum.

Fringe Bangs– Think choppy not Cleopatra – spotted on Jennifer Hudson and Diablo Cody. And the winner is? Diablo Cody, hands down. She’s also my pick for best hair of the evening.
