2014 Oscars Beauty: Idina Menzel's Chic Hair and Beautiful Nails

Celebrity hairstylist Roque gave Tony Award-winning actress Idina Menzel a straight and polished red carpet look for the 2014 Academy Awards last night. “Idina has really curly hair and with the rain in Los Angeles today, we wanted to make sure her hair stayed sleek and frizz-free,” said Roque.

To create and maintain Menzel's sleek style, Roque first asked Menzel to wash her hair with John Frieda Frizz Ease Smooth Start Shampoo and Conditioner the night before in order to give her the perfect frizz-free foundation for her straight style on the red carpet. “Idina has tight, curly hair so it was important that she eliminated frizz at the core for easier styling tonight.” To begin styling, Roque created a cocktail of John Frieda Frizz Ease Straight Fixation Styling Crème and two drops of Frizz Ease Extra Strength Six Effects + Serum and applied throughout Menzel's clean, wet hair. Next, Roque gave Menzel a low side part over her left eye before blow-drying her hair straight using a Mason Pearson Brush. “I believe it’s important part the hair before you begin heat styling," says Roque. To prep Menzel's hair for the flat iron, Roque spritzed John Frieda Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray throughout her hair. After flat ironing in sections, Roque tucked the remainder of Menzel's hair on the left side gently behind her ear and sprayed John Frieda Luxurious Volume All Day Hold Hair Spray for a flawless finish.

To complement Menzel's stunning dark green gown and sexy, sleek hair, celebrity manicurist Lisa Postma painted the star's nails with a coat of essie's Blushing Bride nail polish. According to Postma, the "flush of pale pink [gave Menzel] a clean and chic look for the red carpet."
