Laini Reeves and Moroccanoil coif Amy Adams for Oscar night

Which was more lovely? Amy Adams‘s pale blue Oscar de la Renta ball gown or her hair designed by celebrity stylist Laini Reeves for Moroccanoil?

Mmmmm – quite the dilemma! Amy Adams’s hair was 50’s glam and fairytale princess with a modern textural edge that flawlessly complemented the couture gown by Oscar de la Renta, with layers after scallop-shaped layer of ruffles in the perfect shade to complement her eyes!

“I was inspired by the detailing of the amazing design Amy wore,” said Laini Reeves. “The hair shape is classic. However, I made the texture a little more tousled, created a crown with a little bit of a backcomb that didn’t look too stiff or perfect, and swept her hair back into a messy modern chignon.”

The ultimate complement to this incredible gown!I

Laini shares how she created the look
1. I started with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo followed with Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner. I appled Moroccanoil Treatment Light on the ends to smooth and control them when I was ready to create the chignon.

2. Next, I used Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse and blow dried the hair, moving the hair upwards at the roots for as much lift as possible.

3. I then set hair with large size sponge rollers to create texture, spraying each section with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong before rolling. Once totally set, I sprayed again before leaving them in for half an hour.

4. After removing the rollers, I gently finger-brushed the hair, then used a backcombing brush to create padding at the roots, especially at the crown.

5. I brought back all the hair and tied it into a loose ponytail at the nape of the neck (about 2” away from the scalp), then pushed it back to the nape and up to create a nice high crown.

6. To complete the look, I gently backcombed the ponytail and sprayed it with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong before rolling it into a messy chignon and pinning it into place, letting a bit of the backcombing show.
