Get the Look: Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow at the Grammys

Nicole Kidman

David Babaii for WildAid’s Hair Polish, Blow Dryer and Styling Iron created this sleek, elegant look for the 2009 Grammys. Celebrity hairdresser David Babaii applied a small amount of Hair Polish to wet hair and created a center part. Next, he used his David Babaii for WildAid Blow Dryer with the nozzle attachment to finish the drying process with a large paddle brush to smooth hair straight. Avoid any metal coated brushes as these bristles only generate unnecessary heat and will cause hair to be baked not dried. Hair was sectioned first: top, sides and back. Hair was dried by starting at the nape area first and continued with each section until the entire head was dry. Apply an additional amount of Hair Polish prior to using a styling iron. To finish, he used his David Babaii for WildAid Styling Iron with Tourmaline and Ceramic technology and divided hair into three parts again: top, sides and back. Starting at the nape area and taking small sections at a time, comb the hair before running the flat iron through. Complete each section until you have straightened every strand. Try this tip: By warming the Hair Polish in your palms before applying, actually boosts its ability to seal the cuticle, while repairing and strengthening each strand.

Gwyneth Paltrow

David Babaii created this effortless yet sexy red carpet look using his David Babaii for WildAid Blow Dryer with multiple settings for constant temperature control. Before drying, he lightly misted hair with his Bohemian Beach Spray and created a center part. Using his hands instead of a brush he created a subtle soft texture. After hair was completely dry, David used his David Babaii for WildAid Styling Iron to achieve a soft bend at the ends. He sectioned the hair into 3parts: top, sides and back leaving the nape area free. Starting at the nape and working up and to the sides, he took large strands and created a slight bend to the hair at the ends with the Styling Iron. Alternate the direction of the curls if you wish to achieve a less structured pattern. Inside tip: One of the biggest mistakes women make when doing their hair by not sectioning the hair before they start. Having control over your hairstyle at all times is vital. Also, it is important to invest in a good ceramic and tourmaline Styling Iron.
