For Oscar night, presenter Cameron Diaz channeled Old Hollywood glamour. Her elegant metallic Oscar de la Renta gown was coupled with a luminous 'do reminiscent of Veronica Lake—but created with a modern point of view by stylist Lona Vigi.
Vigi started by spritzing LiQWD Volumizing Catalyst for volume and shine, then used the high-tech Velecta Paramount Paris TGR 4000i hairdryer, which gives you the ability to turn the ionics switch off to build volume, or on to create shine and smoothness. She first blow-dried the hair with ionics turned off, volumizing by taking small sections of hair and using a medium round bristle brush to dry the hair back and up using high velocity and heat. Vigi then “set” the hair and gave it a boost of shine by turning on both the ionics switch and cool-shot button to lock in curls and add polished shine. She then freed the barrel curls and held each one in place with a pin.
Vigi waited a few minutes then brushed out the hair, creating a loose, soft wave pattern. She then brought one side behind Diaz's ear and the other forward toward her face. She then finished with a light misting of hairspray.
“This professional hairdryer is really great,” enthused Vigi “and being able to turn ionics off and then on again was huge for me in creating this look. I love its speed, lightness and compact size. There’s nothing like it.”
