Get the Look: Natalie Portman Oscars 2009 from Kevin Mancuso

Retro ruled the red carpet last night, with 30s, 40s and 50s glamour on display. Smooth waves and constructed pinning ushered in new, softer styles that were timelessly elegant.

Kevin Mancuso, Creative Director for Nexxus Salon Hair Care, created the modern and romantic updo worn by presenter Natalie Portman. With a sweeping side part and soft curl, pinned into a beautiful knot at the nape of her neck, the look was deceptively easy to create. Kevin described how to get the look below in a few simple steps.

How-to Get Natalie Portman’s hairstyle at Oscars 2009:

Step 1: Apply a volumizing styler to the roots, like Nexxus Root Exxtend, to add body into the hair.

Distribute a medium-hold mousse, such as Nexxus Mousse Plus, throughout hair to and maintain and support the structure of the style. More modern updos employ product instead of teasing to build body, for a softer, healthier look. Blow dry hair with a large round brush, concentrating on the ends to smooth the hair.

Robert Vetica for Moroccanoil Styles Marion Cotillard’s Hairstlye for Oscars 2009

Oscar presenter Marion Cotillard once again proved to be one of the most striking and beautiful arrivals on the red carpet. Robert Vetica for Moroccanoil Styles Marion Cotillard’s Hairstlye for Oscars 2009. Robert Vetica is the author of the new book, “Good to Great Hair” (Fair Winds Publishing).

Top celebrity hair stylist Robert Vetica, who styled Marion Cotillard’s hair for her La Vie En Rose Best Actress Oscar win last year, created a flawless, dramatic look that worked to perfection with the elegant John Galliano for Christian Dior gown that she wore.

Vetica created a shimmering, ultra modern take on the French Twist, that was inspired by Cecil Beaton’s portraits of the great fashion and society icons of the 40’s and 50’s. Polished and styled close to the head, the French Twist was rolled large and emphasized volume for a contemporary edge.

To create the beautifully sculptured French Twist, Vetica first blow-dried Marion Cotillard’s hair with a round brush using Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream (MSRP: $30.00 / 10.2 fl. oz.) to smooth, detangle strands and to prevent frizz, and created a low side part. He then teased the hair all over with added attention to the crown and the back of the head.
