Get the Look: Sandra Bullock at the 83rd Academy Awards

Celebrity hairstylist David Babaii created a stunning updo he called “Texture Infusion” for Sandra Bullock's red carpet look. To achieve it, he rinsed out all shampoo and conditioner from her hair to start on a clean canvas. He then applied Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment to towel dried hair and evenly distributed the product using a wide tooth comb. Next, he blow dried the hair with a round brush and applied more Pequi Oil before brushing her hair straight back. Starting at the front, Babaii took random ½ inch sections and twisted it before pressing the entire strand with IT&LY HAIRFASHION Digital Styling Iron to create the wavy texture. He repeated this process for the entire front half of her head and applied Pequi Oil in between to tame frizz and add shine. Babaii finished off by finger combing the hair back into a ponytail above the nape, securing it with a band and wrapping her hair around with pins into an elegant updo. Loose hairs were allowed to fall naturally for an elegant finish. —Clarissa Nebuya
