Nicole Kidman looked her best ever at this week’s Oscars, pairing a shimmering black and gold L’Wren Scott gown with an elegant chignon.

The inspiration

“Nicole’s look was very glamorous, and I wanted to go with a textured up-do that was a bit tousled,” said Mara Roszak. Hair was parted in the middle, with a loose chignon
pulled to one side, and pieces falling forward to frame the face.”

1. “I first applied a bit of Moroccanoil Treatment Light for shine and smoothness, starting
at the ends.”

2. “I scrunched in a bit of Moroccanoil Curl Control Mousse, worked it through the roots,
and blow dried her hair using a small round brush to hold in body and texture.”

3. “To define the texture and highlight movement and wave, I touched up the hair on the
sides and top with a 1” curing iron, taking random sections so that the waves were not
too perfect and looked more natural.”

4. “Next, I loosely gathered and pulled hair to the side, twisted it and created a loose bun
shape, adding bobby pins as I went to hold it in place.”

5. “Once the bun was made, I sprayed on Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium,
mostly on the bun, and let certain pieces fall out in front of ear and toward the face, then
lightly sprayed the entire look.”
