It was all about a sleek, straight, and simple hairstyle for Gwyneth Paltrow at the 2011 Oscars. Harry Josh, John Frieda International Creative Consultant, worked with Gwyneth to find a hairstyle that expressed her classic, elegant red carpet style. Says Harry, “Gwyneth was my inspiration. She never tries to impress and her sophistication comes from within–a hairstyle shouldn’t overshadow that. She’s always had impeccably chic personal style and I wanted her hair to reflect that on the red carpet.”
How to get the look:
Harry started with the new John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight (an at-home alternative to salon straightening treatments) because he wanted to give Gwyneth super smooth, shiny hair that would stay straight all night long.
Harry began blowing out her hair with a Mason Pearson brush, carefully straightening each section at a time. Next, he went over each piece with a comb and a flat iron, ensuring every hair stayed sleek.
Harry gave her a center part and combed down all stray hairs and flyaways with the new John Frieda Full Repair Flyaway Tamer, a great on-the-go styling tool that’s a must-have for any red carpet. Small enough to stash in a clutch, the mascara-like wand fixes any wild hair in seconds.
This look was a little too flat for me. What do you guys think?
