1. Ana de Armas’ quartet of hairstyling products
Ana de Armas’ hairstyle of choice for tonight’s awards was “soft, effortless waves.” Hairstylist Jenny Cho was responsible for the lead actress nominee and “Blonde” star’s look. “The bottom of [de Armas’ Louis Vuitton] dress was embellished with what looked like fallen flower petals and morning dew—that’s where I drew my inspiration for her hair,” she said in a statement. “I wanted to showcase her beautiful brown hair against all the lighter palettes.I decided on soft, effortless waves worn falling behind the shoulders and back. The look is powerful yet soft, beautiful and feminine.”
For hair prep, Cho started off with the René Furterer Style Blowout Balm to ensure that de Armas’ strands had a smooth finish. Cho then went in with the Style Protect Thermal Protecting Spray to safeguard strands during heat-styling. To complete the look, she spritzed the Style Shine Mist and Style Finishing Spray all over de Armas’s hair.
2. Jamie Lee Curtis’s eyeshadow palette
Once again, Jamie Lee Curtis’s award show glam came courtesy of makeup artist Grace Ahn and beauty brand Anastasia Beverly Hills. To create the “Everything Everywhere All at Once” star’s shimmering bronze eyeshadow, Ahn used the Primrose Palette, a palette designed for the eyes and face that comes packed with 12 shades in metallic and matte finishes. She placed the colors “Honey” and “Primrose” in the crease and “Sparkling Amber” on the lids for a hint of sparkle. “Deep Berry” was applied on the outer corners and brushed on Curtis’s eyeliner for a soft finish.
3. Michelle Yeoh’s hairstyling duo
Best lead actress nominee and “Everything Everywhere All at Once” lead Michelle Yeoh wore long, loose waves for the night. Hairstylist Mara Roszak was behind the look. To create Yeoh’s Oscars hairstyle, Roszak used the Bio Ionic Smart-X High Efficiency Dryer and Long-Barrel Curling Iron 1.25″. After spraying Yeoh’s hair with a root lift spray, Roszak dried down her strands with the Smart-X High Efficiency Dryer. Roszak reached for the Long Barrel Curling Iron 1.25 to craft Yeoh’s loose waves.
4. Vanessa Hudgens’ suite of hairstyling products
As host to the “Countdown to the Oscars” pre-show on ABC, actress Vanessa Hudgens went with a slicked-back bun shaped like a bow. Hairstylist Danielle Priano was behind what she called a “classic, timeless” look. Priano teamed up with Sexy Hair, Shark and Hidden Crown Hair to create the look. She prepped Hudgens’ hair with the Sexy Hair Big SexyHair Root Pump Volumizing Spray Mousse and the Big Altitude Bodifying Blow Dry Mousse. The volumizing mousse was applied to the ends while the latter was placed “on the mid-shaft to ends,” Priano said in a statement.
Next up: heat-styling: Priano reached for the Reviewed-approved Shark FlexStyle Air Styling & Drying System to dry Hudgens’ hair, then used the tool’s paddle brush attachment “to straighten and smooth the hair for ultimate shine.” Once the heat-styling was done, it came time to add the extensions. Priano reached for the Hidden Crown Deep Brown 18-inch clip-in extensions and placed them “two inches above and below the crown, making sure the extensions are placed in the direction of the ponytail.” She made sure to lock Hudgens’ ponytail in with the Big SexyHair Intense Hold Hairspray along with Priano’s very own Sexy Hair Medium Hair Elastic.
5. Jessica Chastain’s red lipstick
Just like at this season’s SAG Awards, Jessica Chastain and makeup artist Kristofer Buckle came together once more for the actress’s 95th Annual Academy Awards glam. Buckle also joined forces with Charlotte Tilbury again to attain the star’s look. Arguably, the makeup look’s crown jewel was Chastain’s “bold berry lip” that came courtesy of the brand’s Matte Revolution Lipstick in “Red Carpet Red,” a vivid ruby red).
