Halle Berry’s Hair at the 2009 Oscars: Get the Look!
Academy Award winner Halle Berry looked radiant in a black-and-gold strapless Marchesa gown at the 81st Annual Academy Awards last night. Since her dress featured elaborate embroidery work along the bodice and a dramatic, sparkling, exquisitely draped lace and tulle fabric, Halle kept the accessories at a minimum and opted for a romantic, loose chignon, with soft curls framing her face.
The best part: all the products necessary to get this look retail for less than $15. How's that for affordable glamour?
Here are the steps TRESemmé celebrity stylist Mara Roszak took when creating Halle Berry's demure look:
1. Apply TRESemmé Thermal Creations Straightening Gel (pictured at top) on wet hair from roots to ends. Blow-dry hair with a medium-sized round brush, creating movement and lift.
2. Curl random sections of hair using a 1 1/4 inch curling iron, spraying each section with TRESemmé TRES TWO Ultra Fine Mist (pictured third from top) hairspray before curling. Apply a small amount of TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Weightless Crème (pictured second from top) onto hands, rub together, and brush out curls with fingertips, giving hair body and shine.
3. Next, pull hair into a mid-height pony, twisting it into a loose chignon, pinning as you go. Be sure to leave out some pieces to give it an organic look.
4. Finally, spray with TRESemmé TRES TWO Ultra Fine Mist (pictured third from top) hairspray to hold chignon.
Now, you too can look like you're ready for your own golden statue.
