Oscars Hairstyle: Jennifer Hudson

Singer Jennifer Hudson‘s bangs made me want to run over to Ted Gibson’s and force him to “bang me” on the spot. That glossy, heavy fringe is everything, right? Her simple, bone-straight hairstyle was crafted by Clairol Professional Celebrity Stylist Kiyah Wright. Here’s how to get the look she rocked on the red carpet and the sultry waves she sported for her performance. 

 To achieve Jennifer’s sleek, straight look:
1.)    Prep hair with Clairol Professional Jazzing in Coffee Bean, let sit for 5 minutes and wash out with Clairol Professional Repair Shampoo and Conditioner.
2.)    Spritz hair with a lightweight silicone spray to tame flyaways.
3.)    Straighten small sections of hair using a flat iron starting at the nape and moving towards the top of the head.
4.)    Cut wide set bangs and add clip-in extensions for length and drama.
5.)    Finish off with another spritz of silicone spray for light hold and added shine.
For Jennifer’s on-stage performance, Kiyah complemented Jennifer’s sparkly, statuesque Kaufman Franco dress with shiny, voluminous waves.
To achieve Jennifer’s sultry waves:
1.)    Curl 1-inch sections using a 1-inch curling iron starting at the nape and moving towards the top of the head.
2.)    After curling each section spritz with a light aerosol spray to provide lasting hold and shine.
3.)    Continue curling each section for soft, malleable waves. 
4.)    Cut wide set bangs and add clip-in extensions for length and drama.
