Formal Looks: Nicole Kidman's Edgy Updo at the SAG AwardsWednesday, April 20, 2011
Stylist David Babaii created an edgy updo for Nicole Kidman at the SAG Awards this year.
Starting with clean hair, David applied his new favorite must have product called Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment to her entire head.
Next, he blow dried Nicole's hair with the IT&Y HAIRFASHION Ionic Dryer along with a large round brush to achieve a sleek straight finish.
After the hair was dried, he gently back combed the top and sides for volume and then smoothed the surface. To begin the up-do, he swept the hair gently over creating a faux side-part and brining the rest of the hair to the center back and securing with a band just at the top of the nape.
David wrapped the hair into an un-structured Chignon and securing with bobby pins. The secret was not to over comb or smooth the hair but to allow the hair to create a soft natural look. To finish, he used additional Pequi Oil to her bang area to define strands. For added glamour, David added a subtle decorative clip to the side.
