As we look toward the highly anticipated Academy Awards that will take place on Sunday, Feb. 22, we find ourselves reflecting back on those who have paved the way to shape the film industry that we all know and love today. Rounding up favorite hairstyles from the years past, Pureology Artistic Ambassador Sandra Joseph shares her favorite looks for the Oscars’ “leading ladies” and how to recreate their most renowned red carpet styles. And while we wax sentimental, keep in mind that these looks are perfect for Valentine’s Day!

And the award goes to…

Step 1: On damp hair, lightly mist Pureology Colour Fanatic for color and heat protection. To add volume and grip, distribute Root Lift spray hair mousse from scalp to ends.

Step 2: Begin blow-drying roots with a Denman brush to create lift. Continue with a medium round brush to finish the mid-shaft and ends.

Step 3: Create a right side part and lightly backcomb crown to mid-shaft. Apply a mist of Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray all over, and then smooth the surface with a soft brush.

Step 4: Tuck the hair behind the ear and finish with a layer of Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for a light flexible hold.

Step 3: Part hair on the left side and with a large iron and begin curling large off base sections. Add a light mist of Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray with each curl for added shine and hold. Secure curls with clips as you work around the head. When you reach the right side around the face, take a smaller section and curl with a medium-sized iron for more defined curls. Secure with clips and allow to cool.

Step 4: For definition and memory, emulsify a small amount of Anti Breakage Twist shine texturizer throughout fingers and smooth left side behind the ear.

Step 5: Scrunch another application of Anti Breakage Twist shine texturizer to the right side to further enhance the curls, leaving them bouncy all evening long.

Step 4: Place remainder of hair over the right shoulder and finish with  Supreme Control high hold hairspray for an evening of fantastic hold.
