2014 Oscars Beauty: Amy Adams' Sculpted French Twist

To compliment Amy Adams' beautiful navy dress, Celebrity Hairstylist Renato Campora for Kérastase used products from the brand's Couture Styling collection to give Amy a slick-backed, sculpted French twist. "We wanted the hair to compliment the dress. It's very classic and elegant," says Renato.

How to Create Amy's Look:

Step 1: On wet hair apply Kérastase Mousse Bouffante
Step 2: Part the hair on the left side, distributing Kérastase Forme Fatale from mid-lengths to ends and blow dry with a round brush
Step 3: Take the top section and separate it from the rest of the hair
Step 4: Create a French twist with the remaining back section and pin into place with bobby pins
Step 5: Apply Kérastase Forme Fatale throughout all sections for optimal shine
Step 6: Curl the remaining top section with a 1" barrel iron to create waves. Let the hair cool and brush through
Step 7: Pull the top lengths back, combining them into the French Twist and pin
Step 8: Polish off the look with Kérastase Laque Couture

Products Used:

Mousse Bouffante: Volumizing mousse that envelops the fiber to thicken strands for all-over volume
Formel Fatale: Blow-dry gel with an extra-fine texture that perfectly shapes hair to give all over volume and body that lasts
Laque Couture: Micro-fine diffusion hairspray that sets all styles in place with a flexible long-lasting hold
