French Bohemian is the inspiration behind this elegant look for Uma Thurman’s Los Angeles Premiere of “Ceremony” created by hairstylist David Babaii.

To achieve, David Babaii prepared Uma’s freshly washed and conditioned hair by massaging a dime size amount of Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment (www.sephora.com) into her tresses from roots to ends, combing it through with a wide tooth comb for even distribution.
Next, he used a blow dryer to dry the hair with a large round brush, lifting the root area for added volume and cupping the ends under for a smooth, rounded finish. After drying, he applied an additional amount of Pequi Oil for control and then loosely gathered the hair with his fingers and braiding it into a long, loose braid down the center back. He secured it with a rubber band while leaving the shorter top and side layers free. To finish, David created soft loose curls with a 1 ½” curling iron by taking large sections and wrapping them around the inside barrel, holding for a few seconds. He then released allowing the curls to fall naturally to achieve a true French Bohemian Look.
