Celebrity hairdresser David Babaii achieved Nicole's latest red carpet look by combining eras of vintage fabric textures with the perfect epoch red hair color. According to David, "Nicole Kidman always inspires me but for the 2010 SAG Awards, her beautiful skin tone and breathtaking beauty took the lead. The right style and hair color became my main objective."
The look began with a unique period wig that had various tones of ginger, which he then asked celebrity colorist Lorri Goddard-Clark to color match for Nicole. Once her hair was transformed from a medium blonde into a rich, gingered-toffee red, David styled her hair as follows:
First, he gently towel dried Nicole's hair and sprayed his signature Bohemian Beach Spray throughout. Next, he gently rough dried the hair moving his hands in various directions to create texture.
Once dry, he fashioned a center part and divided Nicole's tresses into 4 sections (sides, back crown & nape). Starting at the nape area, he alternated between 1" and 1 ½" ceramic curling irons, taking "V" shaped partings. He then wrapped hair around the inside of the barrel, holding for 10 seconds then gently releasing the curl. With each alternating curl, David slid his fingers up the curl to gently create a soft back combing effect and enhanced texture.
After finishing the entire head, David used his fingers and added extra Bohemian Beach Spray to loosen the curls and highlight the richness of the hair color.
