How-To: Get Natalie Portman's Oscars Hairstyle

In my opinion, Natalie Portman was the shining star on the red carpet last night. Her Grecian Rodarte dress was young, fun, flattering, and I just adored the happy and bright bubblegum pink colour. Her makeup was also girly perfection. She wore pretty purples on her lids, pale pink on her cheeks and lavender on her lips. If you're looking to re-create her look at home, my girl BellaSugar US has all of the details on how to get her makeup!

Lucky for us, I've also got the skinny on her hair. Kevin Mancuso, the Creative Director for Nexxus, created an intricate retro-waved updo for the ultimate glamourous old Hollywood look.

  • STEP 1: Begin by applying a volumizer to the hair to the roots of wet hair for body and texture. Next, use a palm-sized amount of medium-hold mousse such as Nexxus Mousse Plus Volumizing Foam Styler and distribute evenly.

  • STEP 2: Then, use a large round brush, and blow-dry hair concentrating on the ends so that it stays smooth. When hair is 100% dry, take a one or one-and-a-half inch curling iron and create waves making sure to curl hair away from your face.

  • STEP 3: Once your're finished, make a slight side-part and pull hair back and away from the face. Then, section hair off, twist it back and pin it so that the finished look is a knot-inspired updo. To add a little sparkle, pin a brooch or pin into the back of your hair.

  • STEP 4: Lastly, mist your entire head with a light-hold hairspray, such as Nexxus Comb Thru, to help secure the style throughout the evening.
