Oscar Beauty Red Carpet Wrap Up



Many celebrities chose to not play it safe at last night's 87th Academy Awards with the red carpet brimming with voluminous gowns and undercut do's. Contributing to the bold looks of the Oscar-goers was Tracey Cunningham, Redken Celebrity Colorist, who helped Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, and Dakota Johnson, among others, prepare for the awards. Along with Redken, we’ve got the looks from Bridget Brager with TIGI and Lona Vigi with Nexxus!


Anna Farris: Celebrity Hair Stylist Bridget Brager for S Factor by TIGI created a seriously glamorous yet effortless look for Mom star Anna Faris as she graced the Oscars Red Carpet. “We wanted to keep the hair very soft, shiny and undone, a modern look to complement her amazing dress.”

How To:
  1. Prep hair with S Factor by TIGI Stunning Volume Shampoo & Conditioner
  2. Next, spray a liberal amount of S Factor by TIGI Body Booster Pumping Spray on damp hair. Roughly blow dry hair, using fingers to tousle
  3. Wrap 1.5" sections of hair around a 1.5" barrel curling, alternating directions in order to keep the curls modern and undone
  4. Emulsify a dime-size amount of S Factor by TIGI True Lasting Colour Oil between hands and run down the hair from mid-shafts to ends
  5. Finish with S Factor by TIGI Vivacious Hair Spray and brush out curls using a boar bristle brush

Products Used: S Factor by TIGI Stunning Volume Shampoo & Conditioner, S Factor by TIGI Body Booster Pumping Spray, S Factor by TIGI True Lasting Colour Oil, S Factor by TIGI Vivacious Hairspray

S Factor by TIGI products are available at select salons and Ulta locations.


For last night’s red carpet awards, Leslie Mann paired a 70's-inspired white Armani tux with a voluminous, wavy ponytail, created by Nexxus New York Salon Care Celebrity Stylist Lona Vigi.  “Leslie and I decided to add volume and waves to a chic low pony to mimic the 70's vibe of her outfit.”

Follow Lona's tips below to re-create her red carpet-ready style:
  1. Start by washing hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner like Nexxus® New York Salon Care DIAMETRESS Rebalancing Shampoo and Restoring Conditioner that increases the diameter of each strand.
  2. On wet hair, create a center part and apply Nexxus® New York Salon Care EXXTRA GEL Superior Hold Sculpting Gel to define the hair around the face and sides for a sleek look.
  3. Blow dry the hair off the face and spray each section individually with Nexxus® New York Salon Care FRIZZ DEFY Finishing Mist all over to provide humidity-resistance and a natural hold.
  4. Curl the ends with a small barrel curling iron to hold and secure the style during this unusual Los Angeles rain.
  5. Brush out the ponytail and backcomb for fullness.  Finish by spraying with Nexxus® New York Salon Care MAXXIMUM Superior Hold Finishing Mist to provide a defined texture and firm hold that allows the style to stay in place.

Last night, Nexxus New York Salon Care Celebrity Stylist Lona Vigi worked with starlet Selena Gomez for the Vanity Fair Party. “We decided to go with a soft, sexy waved style to complement her black lace gown.”


Follow Lona's tips to re-create Selena's style:
  1. Start by washing and conditioning hair with Nexxus® New York Salon Care Oil Infinite Rebalancing Shampoo and Restoring Conditioner for smooth, luminous hair.
  2. To build texture apply Nexxus® New York Salon Care Mousse Plus Volumizing Mousse throughout damp hair for lasting volume that moves and blow dry in sections using a round brush.
  3. Once dry, wrap small sections around a large barrel curling iron until all of the hair has been set.
  4. Cool completely and then brush out the hair to create softness.
  5. Finish with Nexxus® New York Salon Care Comb Thru Touchable Hold Finishing Mist to provide movement and body to her style.

Nexxus New York Hair Care Products are available at select salons! 

Tracey Cunningham shares her secrets for how she achieved her client's looks using Redken color! 

1. Emma Stone: Tracey applied Redken Shades EQ Cream to add shine and achieve a brighter version of Emma's red color. Knowing that all eyes would be on the Birdman star, Tracey ensured Emma’s hair had maximum shine by finishing with Shades EQ Gloss, a no-ammonia, no-lift formula that acts as a glaze, color refresher and color corrector.

2. Naomi Watts: To brighten one of Hollywood’s favorite blondes, Tracey used Redken’s NEW Blonde Idol Blue Oil Lightening System oil lightener from the Professio­nal Haircolor Collection (coming to salons this March) to create subtle babylights for added blonde dimension.

3. Dakota Johnson: Adding dimension and richness to the locks of the Fifty Shades of Grey star, Tracey used the no-ammonia Shades EQ Cream to create Dakota’s lowlights. Tracey finished with a glaze, Shades EQ Gloss, to provide an added healthy shine.
To continue to protect the haircolor after their service, Tracey recommends that her clients use Redken Color Extend Magnetics Sulfate-Free Haircare to seal in color and deliver maximum vibrancy and shine. 

Redken products are available at ShopSalon!
