Oscar Blandi created a non-traditional chignon – “We wanted a clean and polished look to compliment Faith’s Valentino gown. I used an off-centered chignon that had a natural mess to it, with more curls and lots of definition,” Oscar explained.

“I started by spraying my Jasmine Protein Mist on the hair, to just lightly re-wet the hair. I sprayed Wave Enhancing Spray to the roots to give it volume and then blew the hair dry. I used a 1 ½ inch curling iron and then pinned the curls, letting the hair set for 10 minutes. I then gathered the hair in a low, off center pony tail and began pinning curls. I added more body and texture to the bottom curls, in order to add thickness and body to the chignon. As I got closer to the last few pieces, I kept them smooth and finished sculpting the chignon. To finish the look, I used a little Seta to smooth over the hair and any fly-away pieces,” said Oscar.
Oscar Blandi’s Toolkit
· Oscar Blandi Jasmine Protein Mist ($18, at Sephora) – Infused with soy and wheat proteins, this styling aid seals the cuticle. This allows hair to withstand the heat and abuse we subject our hair when using a flat/curling iron or blow dryer so that we can achieve the same look from the initial style.
· Oscar Blandi Wave Enhancing Spray ($18, at Sephora) – Enriched with wheat proteins to strengthen and fortify the hair, this lightweight spray activates all types of wavy hair, adding texture and bounce, leaving hair feeling soft and natural to the touch.
· Oscar Blandi Seta ($19, at Sephora) – Functions like silk, Seta will transform and emphasize any style into a sleek and refined Italian work of art. It seals the hair’s cuticle while providing incredible shine and protecting damp hair from heat.
I think Faith’s hair looks GORGE. This was one of my fave Grammy hair concepts. What did you think?
