Idina Menzel’s Mid-length Glamour

image001 (2)

I styled Idina Menzel’s hair last night for her surprise appearance at the Academy Awards. Here, the step-by-step on how I created the look.

1)      I started off on damp hair and applied a blowdrying spray for volume and texture, mousse for even more volume and styling gel for sleekness.

2)      I then rough dried her hair. It’s important to use a nozzle when blowdrying hair because it creates constant heat and direction.

3)      After the blow dry, I parted her hair in a deep side part for volume and ultimate shine. I then sectioned off the hair from ear to ear and pinned the top section of her hair using a dual bristle brush of nylon and boar for separation, volume and smoothing.

4)      Next, I attached a mid -length fall. This is a great way to create a faux bob for yourself without having to cut your hair!

5)      I then curled her entire head using a mid – sized marcel iron.

6)      Next, I backcombed the top of her head to give her that classic, youthful yet Old Hollywood look. I finished with holding spray to keep it all in place and she was ready to face John Travolta!

How To Get Idina Menzel’s Super Bowl Waves

ted
I’ve been in Arizona since Wednesday working with Idina for all of her press leading up to the game. The atmosphere here is amazing, even though it’s rained quite a bit. The stadium at the University of Pheonix has been buzzing with energy all week. I even got a chance to take a pic with the some of the Sea Gal cheerleaders during Idina’s Access Hollywood interview!

The whole week Idina has been fantastic – super happy so ecstatic to follow behind the likes of Whitney Houston, Beyoncé and Cher in singing the national anthem! I am so honored to have been able to be a part of this incredible moment in her life. The look I created for is her favorite and is classic Idina – the gibson girl wave!

1)      I started off with freshly shampooed and conditioned hair. Idina’s look is all about effortless texture – to help achieve this I applied 3 different products to her hair before blow drying. At the root I used Kerastase Volumfique mousse for volume, on the mid shaft and ends I applied Kerastase’s Volumfique spray, then on top of that I used Kerastase’s Densimorphose mousse. I find that the combination of these products give hair amazing body, texture and lift. The stylists in both my NYC and Fort Lauderdale salons use these products and the rest of the Kerastase line on all of our gibson girls and guys.

2)      Next, I dried her hair by rough-drying with my fingers at first and finished with my dual bristle round brush to smooth out the cuticle.

3)      Once her hair was dry, I parted her hair down the middle for that classic girl next door look. To achieve the waves, I used a 1 ¼” curling iron and taking 1” sections, wrapped it around the base of the iron leaving the ends out. This trick is the difference between your mother’s curls and the effortless wave that is EVERYTHING right now. I finished the wave by flat ironing the ends.

4)      Another key step to this look is to finger through the waves with your hands. This softens the wave and helps to blend them together.

5)      To make sure that she was ready for her big moment, I sprayed her hair with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold and she was off!

Lupita Nyong’o’s Golden Globes 2015 Hairstyle

Lupita+Nyong+o+72nd+Annual+Golden+Globe+Awards+na9h23XF2N7lOmg what a beauty! Lupita wore a regal Giambattista Valli couture gown so we both felt this afro would complement the look perfectly. Her afro is super powerful, regal and chic. I love working with Lupita because it’s really fun coming together to figure out what her look will be. We listened to some really amazing music last night and had a blast before she was ready to walk the red carpet!

1)      I first prepped her hair with warm towels to add moisture to her natural hair. This soothes the scalp and starts to relax her before the red carpet. It also softens her curls to make them more manageable.

2)      I then applied Kerastase Elixir Ultime, L’Oreal Professionnel’s Gelee Cashmere and Leonor Greyl’s Serum de Soie Sublimateur for shine, frizz control, moisture and added texture. Girls with natural hair complain about the same things – the mix of these products gave me the texture I needed to create her look.

3)      Next, I attached extensions to her hair for added volume and body using L’Oreal Professionnel’s Texture Expert Or Graphic Modelling Gel. I then blew her hair dry to ensure that the gel was set.

4)       After attaching the extensions I cut it into this amazing shape. I then molded and pressed her hair into its shape. I wanted her hair to resemble a crown.

5)      To make sure she was red carpet ready, I sprayed her hair with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold and she was off!
