Steal the Look: The Best Hair Moments at the SAG Awards 2018 Red Carpet

For us hair stylists, perhaps the most interesting part of every awards show is the Red Carpet Event. We’re curious to see the hair style and color our favorite celebrity chose to wear this time around, hoping we can replicate it in the salon the next day.

So last Sunday, we tuned in on the 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, California and picked the best hairdos of the night.

Check out our favorite hair colors and styles below!

Reese Witherspoon


Use the O&M CØR.color 12.8 Super Pearl Blonde to lighten her base and form the foundation. To add some pops of blonde, use the O&M Ammonia Free Keratin Powder Lightener in foils with an O&M CØR.color 10 vol Activator to add contrast without putting too much stress on the hair. Then, tone with O&M CØR.color 9.8 Very Light Pearl Blonde using O&M CØR.color 5 vol Semi Activator to clean up the ends and give a creamy pearl blonde glow to the hair.


To prep the hair, treat with O&M The Power Base Protein Treatment. It adds protein from rice to rebuild the hair, with moisture added to keep the hair soft. Next, layer the hair with O&M Atonic Hair Thickening Spritz to give nourishment and help build the texture. Then layer with O&M Rootalicious Root Lift Spray and finish by blow drying the hair.

Afterwards, part the hair on the side you feel is best (yes, everyone even Reese has a better side), then use a curling iron on a 90-degree angle to create the wave. Remember to take all sections in the same direction to create a finger wave. Spray with O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hair Spray to set in place. Et voila – your client is red carpet ready!

Renée Bargh


Start this vacation blonde look off by using the O&M Paint Powder Clay Lightener to add interest to mid-lengths and ends. Once processed, use O&M CØR.color 7 .13 Cool Beige Blonde with O&M CØR.color 10 vol Activator to add shading at the root level. Then, use O&M CØR.color 10.03 Lightest Beige Blonde and O&M CØR.color 5 vol Semi Activator through ends to add a subtle beige tone to the ends, a true melt of tones. The addition of O&M Seven Day Miracle Moisture Masque will help to lock in color and maintain moisture.


Renée Bargh’s SAG hair style is all about body. To replicate her style, dry the moisture out of hair with a mix of O&M Atonic Hair Thickening Spritz and O&M Know Knott Detangling Spray for subtle moisture and body building properties. Then add O&M Surf Bomb Sea Salt Texture Spray, which is designed for giving texture without shine.

This look is very modern as it’s not about high-gloss hair but more about a smoky opaque look. Once dry, use a large barrel tong to define the waves/curl around face and do a French twist/plait through the back. To set style, use a mist of the Surf Bomb as a hairspray/setting lotion.

Saoirse Ronan


To achieve this stand out blonde, use O&M Ammonia Free Pearl White Powder Lightener and 20vol as an on-scalp lightener. Process to blend with her mids to ends color. Then, treat the hair with O&M The Power Base Protein Treatment which rebuilds the hair using rice protein and adds moisture, making this the perfect product to use after bleaching but before toning. Then, use a mix of O&M CØR.color Sand Toner and O&M CØR.color 0.00 Clear to glaze and add extra dimension.


With highly treated colored hair, a great way to start any blowout is to use O&M Atonic Hair Thickening Spritz to add some body and protect the hair from heat styling tools. Once the moisture is taken out of the hair, the second step is to add some O&M Style Guru Styling Cream which is like a Vitamin E cream for the hair, giving it some body and nourishment.

Once the hair is 100% blow-dried, spray some more Atonic over the hair; then, use an iron to create a small amount of bend around the cheek to lip area. Afterwards, loosely shake the wave out. With a tangle-free hair tie, secure firmly at the name and wrap some hair around the tie to hide. You’re all set to win some awards!

Olivia Munn


Shine factor: 10! Olivia Munn’s SAG Awards hair is a layer of 2 semi colors back to back. Start with O&M CØR.color 4.1 Ash Brown  and O&M CØR.color 5 vol Semi Activator, then rinse and add layer 1/2 4.1 Ash Brown with half O&M CØR.color 0.00 Clear. This will amp up the shine value by using a clear gloss to seal the tone and plump the cuticle.


Spray O&M Know Knott Detangling Spray into the hair then apply O&M Project Sukuroi Gold Smoothing Hair Balm, a repair balm that contains keratin for strength and shine, locks in moisture in and stop frizz.

Blow hair out with a Denman brush, poker straight. Then with your fingertips, place some more Project Sukuroi on the hair and iron. The rose fragrance will be a hit with anyone who comes near. The gold oil will repair the hair and give it a wig like look – perfection for straight hair!

When combing hair to create the part, make sure to spray comb with O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hair Spray to stop any static and fly away hair.

Mandy Moore


To achieve Mandy Moore’s glam red carpet look at the SAG Awards, paint the regrowth with Oway Hcolor 5.56 Red Mahogany Light Blonde and Oway Htone 9 Volume Cream Developer at a 1:1 ratio. Then, balayage ends with Oway Hbleach Butter Cream Lightener and Oway Hcatalyst 20 Volume Cream Developer for that sunkissed look. Tone with Oway Hcolor 7.35 BT Tobacco Blonde with Oway Htone 9 Volume Cream Developer at a 1:1.5 ratio. Finish the look by shampooing the hair with Oway Hbalance Post-Color Neutralizing Shampoo and Mask to bring back the hair and scalp to their natural pH balance.


Replicate Mandy’s voluminous curls by applying some Oway Flux Potion and a cocktail of Oway Smoothing Cream and Oway Glossy Nectar on the ends before blowdrying. Then spray Oway Thermal Stress Protector prior to curling the hair.

Finger comb the curls with Oway Boho Pomade to soften and define the tendrils and a spritz of Oway Sculpting Mist to give it long-lasting hold.

No one does red carpet like Nicole Kidman. Known for her elegance and style, it’s not surprising everyone wants to copy her looks. To replicate her SAG Awards 2018 hair, lighten the hair with Oway Hbleach Butter Cream Lightener with Oway Hcatalyst 40 Volume Cream Developer. Then tone first with a mix of Oway Hcolor 10.1 Ash Extra Light Blonde and Oway Htone 9 Volume Cream Developer at a 1:1.5 ratio. Followed by equal parts Oway Hcolor 10.1 Ash Extra Light Blonde and Oway Hcolor 11.17 Frosted Platinum with Oway Htone 9 Volume Cream Developer at a 1:1.5 ratio.


To recreate Nicole Kidman’s signature chignon updo, apply some Oway Volumizing Root Spray to give the roots some volume and a dash of Oway Smoothing Fluid for some shine and heat protection. Next, spray Oway Thermal Stress Protector before curling the hair. Pin up the curls to the side, creating a low chignon while leaving out some tendrils on the other side to frame the face.

Finish with Oway Sculpting Mist and Oway Glamshine Cloud for the extra hold and shine.
