Ken Paves wanted both Eva Longoria and Victoria Beckham to look “effortlessly chic” at the 17th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party, on February 22, 2009.
Eva Longoria Parker.
“Eva’s hair was based on Bridget Bardot/Sophia Loren – for inspiration. I wanted to pair something ultra feminine yet pulled back and chic with her tuxedo. I began on her almost completely air-dried hair and sprayed volumizer (Try, Ken Paves Healthy Hair Volumzing Spray, $ 24) throughout.
I tousled her hair with my fingers while drying the rest of the way because I wanted to create a natural texture. I lightly smoothed her fringe [bang] with a round brush. Lastly, I twisted the back up and secured it with hair pins. I wanted her look to be effortlessly chic.”
“For Victoria, I also wanted to create a simple and elegant style to pair with her ultra glam and modern dress. I used volumizer (Try, Ken Paves Healthy Hair Volumizing Spray, $24) on her damp hair and blow dried with a vent brush for shape and natural texture.
I created a deep side part to dress up her short style. I finished the look by using gel just around the hair like for a sleek, clean, and effortlessly chic look. I think she looks amazing -this is modern glamour!”
