Nicole Kidman's latest red carpet look is as sophisticated as it is sexy. Below, celebrity stylist David Babaii shares how he created the starlet's loose, luminous waves:
To get started, I had Nicole shampoo and condition her hair with David Babaii for WildAid Amplifying Shampoo and Conditioner for volume. (Remember my motto: rinse, rinse, rinse, so you have a clean canvas. This is a must for achieving a "good hair day"!)
Next, I sprayed her entire head with David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray and scrunched the product into her hair. This gives just the right amount of texture and movement.
To create added volume while blow drying, I moved her hair in various directions. Once dry, I sectioned the hair into three different parts: top, sides and back leaving the nape area free. This is vital because you need to have constant control over the hair at all times. I used a 1 ½" sized FHI Heat Ceramic curling iron to create these luscious loose curls. To achieve natural looking curls and/or hide any partings, take alternating "V" shaped partings and wrap the sections around the inside of the barrel and hold for 10 seconds. Clip each curl and allow them to cool.
To style, remove all the clips and rub a small amount of David Babaii for WildAid Hair Polish into your hands and finger tips. Gently run your fingers through the curls to loosen (no comb or brush, please!) Remember, your hands can be your best styling tools. To create these loose curls, take random sections and run your fingers through to separate and define.
For additional lift or volume at the scalp area, I used David Babaii for WildAid Volcanic Ash Root Amplifier. With my fingers, I lifted sections for extra volume and height. Finally, to complete Nicole's look, I sprayed David Babaii for WildAid Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray.
