Vera Farmiga Oscars 2010: The Hairstyle
Best Supporting Actress nominee Vera Farmiga wore a swirling, ruffled Marchesa gown in a vibrant berry color that was pure red carpet. Her Oscar hair look, created by celebrity stylist Lona Vigi, was soft, romantic and very modern.
How to get Vera Farmiga’s Oscars 2010 hairstyle: The design emphasized soft, wavy texture as well as volume, and used a professional Velecta Paramount Paris X:Q Onyx blow dryer ($299.95) to create its essential structure and shape. Vigi started with wet hair, sprayed on volumizer, and used the high setting of the powerful dryer to quickly dry the hair while sculpting curls using a small round brush. She then pinned each barrel curl in place to build in height, and used the cool setting to lock in the curls.
“This French-made dryer is my new favorite tool,” explained Vigi. “It’s really fast and powerful yet so lightweight, and quiet enough to have a conversation while I’m working. The quality is amazing! Velecta Paramount Paris dryers are made by hand from start to finish by one person, and I love that it’s ergonomic and low-EMF.”
After releasing the curls, Vigi gently finger combed the top of the hair to soften it and create a flowing shape. She then pulled the hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, split it in two and wrapped each side in opposite directions to created large, loose and carefree textured bun. She secured it with both bobby and hair pins, finished with a touch of hairspray and then placed a Fred Leighton diamond pin on top the left side of the bun.
