    How to Get Oscar Winning Locks with Matrix Artistic Director


    by LifeMinute

    Who were the Oscar winning trend setters on the red carpet?

    Ammon tells us it's all about minimal makeup and a lot of up-styled hair. One of his favorites was Diane Kruger who wore a braided, twisted chignon that was the perfect balance of casual elegance. To get the look is very easy, the key is to prep the hair. Start with a little bit of texture paste. Ammon's favorite is Design Pulse Messy Couture by Matrix. It's perfect for up-styles. Then you section off the hair, braid, twist and pin. Voila! You have a young and fun chignon!

    Sandra Bullock not only won for Best Actress but she also was Ammon's pick for best hair. It was shiny, sleek and sexy with just the right amount of fullness. The key is to protect the hair from heat styling tools and create healthy dimension and body.

    To get the look, first use a heat protection product like Biolage Thermal Active Repair Creme. Blow dry the hair smooth and use a large barrel curling iron to add a gentle bend to the ends.
