Celebrity stylists show us how they created these Oscar winning looks using Moroccanoil hair products.

Stylist Laini Reeves said she was inspired by the detailing of Amy Adam‘s Oscar de la Renta gown. “The hair shape is classic. However, I made the texture a little more tousled, created a crown with a little bit of a backcomb that didn’t look too stiff or perfect, and swept her hair back into a messy modern chignon.”

1. She cleaned the hair with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo followed by Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner.
2. Then, she applied Moroccanoil Treatment Light on the ends to smooth and control them when she was ready to create the chignon.
3. Reeves used Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse and blow dried the hair, keeping the hair moving upwards at the roots for as much lift as possible.
4. She set the hair with large sized sponge rollers to create texture, spraying each section with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong before rolling. After giving the entire set another spray, she left them in for half an hour.
5. After removing the rollers, she gently finger-brushed the hair, then used a backcombing brush to create padding at the roots, especially at the crown.
6. She brought back all the hair and tied it into a loose ponytail at the nape of the neck (about 2” away from the scalp), then pushed it back to the nape and up to create a nice high crown.
7. Then she gently backcombed the ponytail and sprayed it with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong.
8. She rolled it into a messy chignon, letting a bit of the backcombing show, and pinned it in place.

“When I saw the amazing goddess gown that Kerry was wearing, I knew that her hair had to be long and classic,” stylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew said of Kerry Washington‘s Miu Miu gown.

1. She shampooed hair with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner.
2. She applied Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse to large sections for soft volume, emphasizing the root area.
3. Since Washington’s hair is naturally curly, she straightened it first by blow drying with a comb attachment. She then went back and blow dried different sections of the hair for added volume at the root.
4. Using a 1.5 inch curling iron, she created large, loose S-waved sections, starting at the nape and working up to sides and top.
5. After sectioning off the top and back of the hair, she teased the crown and sides for lift and volume, then combed over the hair lightly and brought it back down.
6. To hold the style without any stiffness, she sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong from about 3 inches away.

“Nicole’s look was very glamorous, and I wanted to go with a textured updo that was a bit tousled,” stylist Mara Roszak said of Nicole Kidman, who wore a shimmering black and gold L’Wren Scott gown.

1. Starting at the ends, she applied a bit of Moroccanoil Treatment Light for shine and smoothness.
2. She then scrunched in a bit of Moroccanoil Curl Control Mousse, worked it through the roots, and blow dried her hair using a small round brush to hold in body and texture.
3. To define the texture and highlight movement and wave, she touched the hair up on the sides and top with a 1 inch curing iron, taking random sections so that the waves were not too perfect and looked more natural.
4. Roszak loosely gathered and pulled hair to the side, twisted it and created a loose bun shape, adding bobby pins as she went to hold it in place.
5. Once the bun was made, she sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium, mostly on the bun, and let certain pieces fall out in front of the ear and towards the face, then lightly sprayed the entire look.

Roszak also styled Zoe Saldana‘s hair for the big night. “The dress was very modern, and I wanted to create a simple hair look that had a chic, French feel to it, and to look clean, healthy and beautiful”

1. First, she applied Moroccanoil Treatment to wet hair for a beautiful, natural looking shine, and then blow-dried.
2. She parted hair to one side, then waved it with 1.5 inch barrel iron, working away from her face.
3. After the hair was waved, she brushed it out lightly with a Moroccanoil XLPRO Paddle Brush, then tucked it behind her ears since she wanted to keep it behind her shoulders.
4. Roszak sprayed the entire look with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray for even more shine.
5. Finally, she used Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium for a hold that looked soft, natural and let the hair move.
