oscars-2018-red-carpet-beauty

The Oscars is perhaps the most anticipated awards show every year, and for good reason. Hollywood stars and celebrities would show up on the red carpet with their fabulous designer outfits and glam looks.

Of course, our O&M advisor Wayne Lewis tuned in on last week’s 90th Academy Awards Red Carpet event to find the best hair looks for our Tribe to recreate in the salon.

Check out his top Oscars picks!

COLOR

Start by using the O&M Paint Powder Clay Lightener and lighten panels through the crown. Then using the O&M CØR.color 0.00 Clear, break the base and give a lighter glow to the natural color. To tone, use 1/2 O&M CØR.color 9.03 Very Light Beige Blonde + O&M CØR.color 10.03 Lightest Beige Blonde mixed with O&M CØR.color 5 vol Semi Activator to add a natural warm glow to her hair.

STYLE

Work O&M Atonic Hair Thickening Spritz in damp hair with comb from roots to ends. Then, blow out 80% of the moisture. Place O&M Rootalicious Root Lift Spray into hair and continue to dry to 100% with fingers. Layer Atonic over dry hair then curl all hair away from face using a barrel iron. Pull front sections out to frame face then twist hair up at the back and pin loosely (we want to keep the texture and body) in hair. Keep the twist at the back soft and allow pieces to fall out. Spray with O&M Surf Bomb Sea Salt Texture Spray to set the style with a matte, modern finish.

Allison Janney

COLOR

Start with a base color of O&M CØR.color 6.0 Dark Blonde, then use O&M Ammonia Free Pearl Blue Powder Lightener to define and frame the face. This will add the interest to a basic base. To tone, use O&M CØR.color 7.13 Cool Beige Blonde and mix with O&M CØR.color 0.00 Clear to add some gloss and bump the tone level to an 8 (1/2 Clear will jump your shade by 1 full shade).

STYLE

Spray O&M Atonic Hair Thickening Spritz and O&M Frizzy Logic Finishing Shine Spray onto hair, then remove moisture. Next, dry the hair to 80% dry. Smooth the hair out with a natural bristle brush (medium to large round brush) and O&M Project Sukuroi Gold Smoothing Hair Balm. Once dried, section front and pull hair into a low ponytail at the nape using O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum. Then, twist and pin into a low chignon or ballerina bun. Secure with fringe pins. Use O&M Volume Curve Hair Brush and polish the fringe to give the perfect shine and smoothness. Set style with O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hair Spray. Spray away from hair with a distance of wrist to elbow. This will prevent hair from looking too stiff or set.

Jennifer Garner

COLOR

Use O&M Paint Powder Clay Lightener with O&M CØR.color 30 vol Activator to panel fine pieces from roots to ends. Let this process for 50 minutes to get maximum lift and brightness. To give the hair a warm LA glow, use O&M CØR.color 7.7 Brunette Blonde with O&M CØR.color 10 vol Activator (2:1) to add more deposit and depth to the glaze.

STYLE

To replicate this Hollywood blowout, spritz O&M Atonic Hair Thickening Spritz onto damp hair and remove moisture. Then, layer O&M Rootalicious Root Lift Spray through hair and round brush small sections of hair away from face. Set each curl on a roller and allow to cool. When finished spray with O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hair Spray, a spray that sets style and helps refuel the hair with antioxidants found in plants from the Australian desert. Allow the hair to cool and set completely, the longer the better. Then remove rollers and shake hair. Style with a basin brush to keep air and volume in hair.

Mary J Blige

COLOR

Use the O&M Ammonia Free Pearl Blue Powder Lightener and place foils very close together to get maximum lift. Place the product a little off the base to give a depth of tone at the root. Then, tone the hair with O&M CØR.color 8.1 Light Ash Blonde using O&M CØR.color 10 vol Activator for better tone saturation and deposit. This needs to be processed for the full 25 minutes for maximum deposit and removal of unwanted warmth. Condition with O&M Power Base Protein Treatment, which gives the hair a shot of rice protein and coconut oil to rebuild and nourish at the same time.

STYLE

Smooth hair out with O&M Project Sukuroi Gold Smoothing Hair Balm. Then place more into hair and flat iron. Using O&M C-Paste Texture Cream, smooth sides out and push to the back. Use the flat iron to create lift on forehead. Make small sections then smooth roots and bend ends. Brush through to create a quiff, like bump on top. Smooth with a fine comb and set in place with O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hair Spray. Use more C-Paste through sides to tame any flyaways.

Laura Dern

COLOR

For this color, create a warm base first with O&M CØR.color 7.7 Brunette Blonde (semi) onto dry hair. Process then rinse and dry. Use O&M Paint Powder Clay Lightener and O&M CØR.color 5 vol Semi Activator in foils to do a tone-on-tone lift with fine foils. No toner needed, though placing O&M CØR.color 0.00 Clear to seal the hair would be a perfect way to finish.

STYLE

Give the hair body and bounce by layering O&M Atonic Hair Thickening Spritz and O&M Style Guru for extra nourishment. Then, remove 80% of the moisture. Feel free to go crazy with O&M Rootalicious Root Lift Spray from roots to ends. Use O&M Volume Curve Hair Brush to create volume and wave. For extra longevity, use a curling iron to set the bend at the end of the hair. Place O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum into hands then smooth through hair and set the shape. A blast of cool air on the fringe panel will help set this in place.

Margot Robbie

COLOR

To achieve Margot Robbie’s fresh clean blonde, paint lots of fine pieces with O&M Paint Powder Clay Lightener. You can get close to the root as it is a thick paste-like product. Rice flour and aloe vera make this a thick nourishing product – perfect to paint with.

Next, tone the hair with O&M CØR.color 10.16 Lightest Ash Violet Blonde to remove orange/gold tones and leave a clean silver white blonde. Use O&M Conquer Blonde Silver Shampoo as a take home product to stop warm tones from creeping back in.

STYLE

This is a very smooth style with little wave. Once moisture is removed, dry hair with paddle brush, keeping the hair straight and smooth. Once the hair resembles a smooth bob, use a large barrel curling iron to create a very soft wave. Allow to cool before you use a wide-tooth basin comb to soften the wave even more. Spray with O&M Surf Bomb Sea Salt Texture Spray to give a more matte finish.

COLOR

Use 1/2 O&M CØR.color 9.0 Very Light Blonde + 1/2 O&M CØR.color 10.16 Lightest Ash Violet Blonde with O&M CØR.color 20 vol Activator on roots and as a semi with O&M CØR.color 5 vol Semi Activator through ends. Then use 1/2 10.16 + 1/2 O&M CØR.color 0.00 Clear and O&M CØR.color 5 vol Semi Activator on damp hair as a glaze. This will create a pearl tone to this dimensional blonde. The end result is a pink/violet blonde.

STYLE

Smooth dry hair with O&M Atonic Hair Thickening Spritz and O&M Frizzy Logic Finishing Shine Spray. Continue to stretch out and keep ends poker straight. Spritz with Atonic to protect the hair from heat tools. Then, iron the hair in small sections to create a mirror-like straight finish.

Saoirse Ronan

COLOR

Use the COR super blonde range in O&M CØR.color 12.11 Super Blond Intense Ash with O&M CØR.color 40 vol Activator and process for 50 minutes to lift and tone. To give this shadow root look, use the O&M CØR.color Charcoal Toner with O&M CØR.color 5 vol Semi Activator for a cool dark base tone. This is a true cool grey pastel toner, which will add sheer depth to the hair. Use the O&M CØR.color Ice Toner on the mid-lengths to clean out any remaining warm tones.

STYLE

With 80% dry hair, apply O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum to smooth the hair. Make sure to angle the dryer down to keep the hair smooth. Allow the ends to cool with a blast of cold air to set them smooth. Once you set the part in place, spray O&M Frizzy Logic Finishing Shine Spray shine onto a comb to stop the flyaways and smooth behind the ear. A shot of O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hair Spray will set the style and lock in moisture.
