Oscars How to: Nicole Kidman’s soft, sexy updo by Mara Roszak for Moroccanoil

I always used to think it was a shame when megastar Nicole Kidman wore her naturally curly, strawberry blonde hair poker straight to events, so was very happy to see her locks looking soft and sexy at the 85th Annual Academy Awards thanks to Mara Roszak for Moroccanoil.
From the neck down she wore a shimmering black and gold L’Wren Scott gown, with the perfect accompaniment in the form of a carefully textured up-do that was a bit tousled and a lot sexy.  Hair was parted in the middle, with a loose chignon pulled to one side, and pieces falling forward to frame the face.
How to recreate the look at home:
* “I first applied a bit of Moroccanoil Treatment Light for shine and smoothness, starting at the ends.”
* “I 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.”
* “To define the texture and highlight movement and wave, I touched up the hair on the sides and top with a 1” curing iron, taking random sections so that the waves were not too perfect and looked more natural.”
* Next, I loosely gathered and pulled hair to the side, twisted it and created a loose bun shape, adding bobby pins as I went to hold it in place.”
* Once the bun was made, I sprayed on Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium, mostly on the bun, and let certain pieces fall out in front of ear and toward the face, then lightly sprayed the entire look.”
