WHO: Best Actress Nominee Olivia Colman
HAIR BY: Celebrity Hairstylist Marcus Francis for Olivia Garden
INSPIRATION: Olivia’s look tonight was inspired by her Dior gown. I wanted to embody a timeless beauty much like French and Italian movie stars of the 50’s and 60’s.
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: To achieve this look, I started with the Olivia Garden iDetangle Paddle Brush to brush hair out and evenly distribute the product from root to tip. I followed this by drying the hair using the Olivia Garden EcoHair Combo Vent Brush and Olivia Garden Ceramic + ion Hair Dryer.
Next, I made a deep side part to shape the style around, then I used the Olivia Garden Titanium + ion Curling Iron to help create fullness and soft texture for the updo. I created an effortless take on a French twist in the back, twisting and knotting the hair from the nape to the crown. I finished by teasing the top section with the Olivia Garden Style Up Folding Teasing Brush and smoothed it out with the Olivia Garden Ceramic + ion Supreme Paddle Brush.
With Olivia’s dark hair and silver gown, I wanted to add some Oscar glamour by stitching the silver twine into the hair.
