Nicole Kidman at 2011 SAG awards

I thought Nicole Kidman’s hair was fun (much better than her dress) for the SAG awards red carpet. But, I’m not convinced it was red carpet worthy. I think it would be a FABulous style for a chic everyday look! It’s sexy, messy and out of the way. What do you think moms?

Modern elegance was David Babaii’s inspiration for Nicole Kidman’s SAG red carpet look.  Here is how to acheive it:

  • Starting with clean hair, David applied his new favorite must have product called Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment (available March 2011) to her entire head. It is rich in moisture-restoring antioxidants, Vitamin A, E, proteins and lipids. The Pequi Oil Treatment instantly absorbs and won’t weigh hair down.
  • Next, he blow dried Nicole’s hair with the IT&LY HAIRFASHION Ionic Dryer that supplies super-fast drying power along with a large round brush to achieve a sleek straight finish.
  • After the hair was dried, he gently back combed the top and sides for volume and then smoothed the surface. To begin the up-do, he swept the hair gently over creating a faux side-part and bringing the rest of the hair to the center back and securing with a band just at the top of the nape. David wrapped the hair into an un-structured Chignon and securing with bobby pins. The secret was not to over comb or smooth the hair but to allow the hair to create a soft natural look.
  • To finish, he used additional Pequi Oil to her bang area to define strands. For added glamour, David added a subtle decorative clip to the side.
