Editorial and celebrity hairstylist Giannandrea, whose roster of clients includes Emmy Rossum, Chrissy Teigen and Naomi Watts, styled Watts' hair for the 86th Academy Awards using Macadamia Natural Oil products. Giannandrea wanted to emulate "that Grace Kelly elegance that Naomi possess [and allow it] to shine through." The gorgeous style perfectly complemented Watts' classy white Calvin Klein Collection gown.
To get the look, Giannandrea started with a large round brush to boost volume from the roots using Macadamia Natural Oil’s large Boar Hot Curling Brush (43mm). He rolled three 1‐inch sections at the front of Watt’s hair in Velcro rollers and sprayed with Macadamia Natural Oil Control hairspray for added volume and control. “Control hairspray is great for award shows as it is resistant to humidity and free from nasty buildup,” Giannandrea explained. “We wanted a little more shape for the dress so I decided to continue with the trend of sleek, chic and straight with some height,” Giannandrea continued.
Giannandrea continued by blow‐drying the rest of Watt’s hair and smoothing it down with Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment for added shine, then flat‐ironing down the side and all the way through for added length. After letting the rollers sit, he unraveled and brush‐swept hair to the side, creating a deep side part and finishing off with Control hairspray. “Simple yet chic! That’s what Naomi’s look is all about."
