Enzo Angileri was inspired by the classic shape of Charlize Theron‘s dress to create a style that was delicate and enduring. “To create this look I needed a very smooth texture and lots of natural-looking shine,” said Angileri.


1. Use new argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Light, made especially for fine and light colored hair, on wet strands before blow drying to ensure the hair itself looked perfected. “After that about 50% of my work was done and I had a texture that was workable, healthy-looking and naturally beautiful.”
2. To create the low, classic bun, roll hair around clockwise. Hold in place with several bobby pins.
3. Spray with a light misting of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray to give hair an extra touch of red carpet glamour for the cameras.
4. Set the look with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray for a firm, flexible hold.


Lona Vigi gave Cameron Diaz a style that was reminiscent of the Old Hollywood glamor of Veronica Lake but with a modern twist.

1. Spray volumizer on hair.
2. Blow dry hair with Velecta Paramount Paris TGR 4000i with the ionics turned off. This setting helps build volume. Take small sections of hair and using a medium round bristle brush, blowdry the
hair back and up using high velocity and heat.
3. Set the hair by turning on both the ionics switch and cool button to lock in curls and add shine.
4. Free the barrel curls and hold each one in place with a pin.
5. Wait a few minutes and then brush out the hair to create a loose, soft wave pattern.
6. Bring one side behind the ear and the other forward toward the face.
7. Finish with a light misting of hairspray.


Robert Vetica accented Jennifer Lopez‘s beautiful Armani Prive dress with a modern and sophisticated updo.

1. Apply Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream on wet hair to create smoothness and shine.
2. Blow dry hair straight.
3. Section hair off and create two ponytails, an inch apart, one on top of the other to create volume below the crown of the head.
4. Use a curling iron on each ponytail to create texture, and then brush them out for width and volume.
5. After creating the shape of the updo, strategically pull out stands throughout the look to create a modern textured affect using flyaways around the forehead to further soften.
6. Finished with Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray.


Best Supporting Actress nominee, Anna Kendrick, wore a romantic Eli Saab gown that was complimented by an effortlessly elegant, modern updo designed by stylist Craig Gangi.

1. Apply argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to add moisture and give hair a soft hold that is smooth, frizz-free, and static-free.
2. Blow dry hair straight.
3. Use a medium sized curling iron to create loose, natural waves.
4. Pull strands back, leaving just enough hair at the nape of the neck to create a small ponytail, and shape a loose, undone textured bun.
5. For a touch of drama, weave three small braids with the remaining hair, then again braided the three with each other. Circle the braid around the bun.
6. Use pins to keep the style in place.
7. Spray Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to hold the look in place without stiffness, and mist the final updo with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray for more shine.


Kendrick’s Up in the Air co-star and fellow Oscar nominee, Vera Farmiga, wore a swirling, soft and romantic style was created by Lona Vigi.

1. Spray volumizer on wet hair.
2. Use the high setting of the Velecta Paramount Paris X:Q Onyx blow dry to quickly dry hair while sculpting curls using a small round brush.
3. She then pinned each barrel curl in place to build in height, and used the cool setting to lock in the curls.
4. Release the curls and gently finger combed the top of the hair to soften it and create a flowing shape.
5. Pull the hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, split it in two and wrap each side in opposite directions to create a large, loose and carefree textured bun.
6. Secure with both bobby and hair pins.
7. Finish with a touch of hairspray and then place a diamond pin on top of the left side of the bun.
