Last up on this edition of ‘Get the Look’ SAG Awards is Alicia Vikander. Alicia, who was nominated (and won) for the award of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her role as Gerda Wegener in ‘The Danish Girl’, hit the red carpet wearing one of the most stunning dresses of the evening. Not many women would be able to pull off the long sleeve patchwork sequin colum gown in shades of grey and bronze but Alicia did with incredible ease. Paired with Louis Vuitton jewlery and black suede platform sandals, there’s no denying she’s the face of Vuitton. When it came to her hair, celebrity hairstylist, Chris Naselli for Kérastase Paris, decided to keep Alicia’s hair sleek and smooth with a part that mimiced the blocks of her dress. To create her look, Chris turned to Kérastase Paris and this is the how to for Alicia’s hair.
Step 1: To prep Alicia’s hair, Chris used Kérastase Nutritive Masquintense and then washed it. Next, while Alicia’s hair was still wet, he appliued a quarter size amount of Kérastase Crème de la Crème applying it from the roots down to her ends and using a comb to make sure that it was evenly distrivutyed.
Step 2: Chris then used a ghd air hair dryer to rough dry Alicia’s hair to about 70% dryness. Once again he applied a quarter size amount of prodcut but this time it was Kérastase Keratine Thermique. This he appleid starting on the roots down to the ends to seal in the moisture and to protect the hair from additional heat styling and for frizz control.
Step 3: Next, using a ghd’s natural bristle radial brush size 3, Chris made a center part in Alicia’s hair. He then blow dried each section to create a smooth blow out.
Step 4: Starting at the back, Chris worked his way around the entire head, take out 1 inch sections and smoothing them with the ghd’s platinum™ styler. He used this flat iron because it features ghd’s tri-zone™ technology and allows hairstyling at an optimal temperature of 365 degrees which also gives the hair added shine.
Step 5: When the entire head was finished, Chris spritzed a small amount of Kérastase Matérialiste only on rhe side sections just above Alicia’s ears. Next he used a comb to tuck her hair behind each ear. To give the sides hold, Chris hit each side with a blastt of hot air and then secured each section with a bobby pin.
Step 6: To complete the look, Chris spritzed a few pumps of Kérastase Elixir Ultime Bi-Phase Spray Oil all over Alicia’s head and smoothed it down with the ghd oval dressing brush for a glossy finish. Lastly he lightly sprayed Kérastase Fix Fabulous around the sides for added hold.
