Charlize Theron set the red carpet ablaze at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards this past Sunday with a crimson Lanvin dress and a hairstyle created by stylist Enzo Angileri. American Salon shares the how-to on this radiant, sexy ‘do.

Using Moroccanoil products, Angileri began with Moroccanoil Light mixed with a small amount of Hydrating Styling Cream to give Theron’s hair its own natural flow and to enable it to move freely.

Next, Angileri blow-dried the hair smooth with two round brushes, a medium for close to the roots and a larger one for the ends.

To finish, when the hair was nearly dry Angileri used the medium-sized brush and sprayed the sections close to Theron’s head with Luminous Hairspray Strong to add lift and to hold the style from underneath.

“At times, a simple look is so powerful,” said Angileri. “However, when you go simple you need to have hair that looks gorgeous—luxurious, silky and shiny. When you do a more complicated look you can often get away with hiding the quality of hair but in a looser style like this one, the texture, shine and health of each strand becomes important since everything is seen in the light.” —Aja Edwards
