Celebrity hairstylist Robert Vetica used Leonor Greyl products to create Daisy Ridley’s modern, twisted updo for Sunday night’s Oscars. Here, the beauty breakdown in Robert’s words.
“We played off the feeling of her silvery Chanel couture dress, which had a 1920s flapper vibe. I didn’t want to be literal with it — it required something really edgy and a tiny bit futuristic. Something truly modern and chic.
Since Daisy has shoulder length hair, I incorporated a 22-inch ponytail I made to achieve this style — not only for length, but for extra volume as well. When I was prepping those hairpieces, I sprayed in Leonor Greyl Huile Secret de Beauté Organic Beauty Oil for Hair and Skin. It’s so nourishing and smells so delish, and the hair piece should be treated with luxurious products and appropriate tools that don’t wreck or burn. I brushed through with Olivia Garden’s EC- 46 S brush with soft bristles.
Next, I sprayed in Leonor Greyl Lait Luminescence Leave-In Detangling and Protective Spray. It’s a great prep product that works as double duty since it’s a heat protectant as well. I applied from roots to ends, lifting up the hair to ensure that it distributes evenly. Then I applied Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice Volumizing Styling Mousse and brushed through with Olivia Garden’s HH-P5 Ionic Vented Paddle Brush, which helps to ensure that the health of your hair stays intact — brushing wet hair with wrong tools can leave your hair more susceptible to damage.
I then had Daisy flip her hair over and I focused on blow drying the roots, as that was one of the anchors for this hairstyle. Once the roots were mostly dry, she flipped her head back to an upright position and I began a typical blowout, sectioning off her hair and going over it with Olivia Garden’s CI-35 round thermal brush. Ceramic-based tools add extra heat to the hair and help mold and shape the style you’re going to create later. Once the hair was fully dry, I added Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel Nourishing and Protective Styling Cream from the ears down, to avoid adding any eight to the top of the head.”
