The 2014 Academy Awards: How to Get Anna Kedrick's Glamorous French Twist

Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe Global Ambassador, Mark Hampton, created a stunning French twist with an edge for award presenter, Anna Kendrick.“We decided to go with a modern take on the timeless French twist to complement Ann’s intricate neckline on her fabulous dress,” said Mark. A little glam, a little punk inspired-inspired-the look is totally Anna and perfect for a long night of red carpets and photo ops.” Here is the step-by-step:

Prep clean hair with the TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe Prep Volume Plumping Mousse. Work a medium-sized amount of TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe Glamour Volume to create a matte finish. Create a clean side part and back comb for desired texture, working in a bit of height at the crown before folding hair in on itself to create an edgy version on a French twist. Secure with u-shaped French pins. Use a small curling iron to give a slight bend to stray hairs tucked behind the ears-not an exact curl or pin-straight. To finish the look, spray TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe Glamour Firm Hold Hair Spray on fingers and gently apply to hair to keep the romantic, soft texture.
