Alicia Vikander looked sleek and smooth at the SAG Awards. Her stylist, Chris Naselli explained Alicia’s look, “I wanted to create a smooth, polished look that complemented the chic lines in her dress.” So how did Chris…“Starting with wet hair, I applied a quarter size amount of Kérastase Crème de la Crème from roots to ends and combed through. Then I started to rough dry her hair to about 70% using the ghd air™ hair dryer. I next applied a quarter size amount of Kérastase Keratine Thermique from roots to ends to seal in moisture and to help protect from heat styling and frizz control. Then I created a center part and blow dried each section of her hair using ghd’s natural bristle radial brush size 3 for a smooth and beautiful blowout.
He continued, “Starting at the back of the head and working towards the front, I took 1 inch sections of hair and then smoothed hair with the new ghd platinum™ styler. This amazing flat iron features ghd’s tri-zone™ technology which allows me to style hair at the optimal temperature of 365 degrees while also giving added shine. Next, spray a small amount of Kérastase Matérialiste just on side sections and use a comb to tuck hair behind each ear. Use the ghd air™ hair dryer again for a few seconds, the blast of hot air helps the sides stay in the place. I then sprayed a few pumps of Kérastase Elixir Ultime Bi-Phase Spray Oil all over and smoothed hair with ghd’s oval dressing brush for a glossy finish. To finish off the look, I lightly sprayed Kérastase Fix Fabulous around sides for hold.”
