Editorial and celebrity hairstylist Giannandrea (The Wall Group), whose roster of clients include Natalie Dormer, Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson, wows us with Natalie Dormer’s sophisticated punk hairstyle for the 20th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards using Macadamia Natural Oil products.
Dormer’s hair into soft side-waves with a French braid in the back. Dormer’s half-shave was done for her role as Cressida in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2. This modern look complimented her Marios Schwab dress, both modern and edgy.
For her luscious, voluminous locks, Giannandrea had Dormer prep the night before using Macadamia Natural Oil’s Flawless, an innovative 6-in-1 cleansing system that cleanses, conditions, cuts blow dry time in half, detangles, enhances volume and eliminates frizz. “We knew we’d be doing the big reveal,” gushes Giannandrea. “I wanted Natalie’s hair in tip-top shape and Flawless always does the trick as it not only cleanses and conditions, it enhances the volume of my client’s hair helping create beautiful styles.”
Giannandrea styled by smoothing his hands through Dormer’s mane with Macadamia Natural Oil’s Healing Oil Treatment, then sectioning off hair into 2” sections and blow-drying with a large round boar bristle brush. After hair was blown out he continued curling hair with a 1” curling iron and continuously spraying Macadamia Natural Oil’s Control hairspray.
This fast-drying, working spray provides lightweight hold and a touchable finish.“ Control adds texture and sets the hair in motion,” Giannandrea states. “Hair of all textures is left frizz-free, full of shine and with no residue.”
At the back of her head Giannandrea created a French braid from her crown to the nape of her neck. Giannandrea formed Dormer’s French twist to follow the hairline that was shaved to contour her back.
Dormer’s French braid flowed into her long waves beautifully and Giannandrea finished off by spraying a paddle brush with Macadamia Natural Oil’s Volumizing Dry shampoo to amplify texture and density of Dormer’s hair. Once hair was completely brushed to the side he ran his fingers through her waves with Healing Oil Treatment and set the waves in place with Control.
