I loved Sandra Bullock's hair at the 2010 Oscars. It just looked so sleek, with a hint of a retro wave, but still modern. The glossy chestnut colour also worked brilliantly with her makeup. It turns out Frederic Fekkai celebrity stylist Adir Abergel was behind her luscious locks for the event.
Adir is known for tending the hair of starlets from Sienna Miller, to Keira Knightley, Jennifer Garner, Rosario Dawson and Jessica Biel amongst others. For Sandra's hair Adir said he wanted to create a simple, straight sleek down-do with beautiful lines to compliment her dress, and he achieved just that! To find out how he got the look, just read more.
- Preparation: Conditioned hair is very important for any sleek style, says Adir. Use a Fekkai Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner, leaving the conditioner on for 15 minutes. Rinse and towel dry the hair.
- The Parting: Part the hair in a deep side parting. Adir recommends following the arch of your brow to choose where to part your hair.
- Blow Dry: Take a large round hairbrush and blow-dry the hair completely straight, making sure the roots are flat.
- Finish: Spray hair with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray on to two inch sections of hair from roots to the end and then use a flat iron to get a bone straight effect. To finish the look, take a large curling iron and lightly curl the ends of the hair for a gentle wave, tucking the fringe behind the ear. Adir added a final touch of gloss with Fekkai Coiff Ultra-Light Finishing Cream.
