Steal the Look: Gina Rodriguez at the Academy Awards
The stars were out full force last night for the Academy Awards, the biggest red carpet of the award season.
Celebrity hairstylist Paul Norton gave Gina Rodriguez a sophisticated and timeless up do for the 2015 Academy Awards. “Gina’s hair is versatile, she can look great with any hairstyle but today we wanted to give her a glamorous look for the Oscars,” said Norton.
Here’s how to steal the look:
First, Norton prepped damp hair with John Frieda Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz-Immunity Primer to create a foundation for a frizz-free hairstyle in the not-frizz-friendly LA weather. After blowing out her hair with a round brush, Norton divided her hair into two sections, from ear to ear, clipping the back part out of the way and set hot rollers to the center front section to add in fullness and volume. He clipped the side front sections temporarily. Norton pulled the back section into a low sleek side ponytail.
Norton sprayed the ponytail with John Frieda KeraFORCE Intense Hold Hairspray and braided it and secured it with an elastic. He then twisted the braid while forming a bun and secured it with French hair pins. Once the back was completed, Norton worked on the front side sections, sweeping each side section over the bun and secured with bobby pins.
Finally, Norton removed the hot curlers from the front section and brushed through the top with a Mason Pearson brush and back-combed hair gently to add the right amount of fullness. He finished the look by anchoring the top section of the hair to the back with bobby pins and secured the entire look with a few more sprays of John Frieda KeraFORCE Intense Hold Hairspray.
