Screen Actors Guild Awards 2013 – How to get Nicole Kidman’s look – How-to by David Babaii

You can always rely on an Awards Season red carpet to roll out the best beauty trends. I am sure most you by now have seen lots of images of the glammed up Hollywood starts at the Screen Actors Guild Awards 2013 today.  And doesn’t Nicole Kidman look absolutely dazzling in the blue lacy Vivienne Westwood dress with a thigh-high slit?!

Personally I think Nicole looked stunning - and while I could never dream of being able to afford the amazing gown, I can at least try to copy her glamorous hair style, as celebrity hairstylist David Babaii has revealed his step-by-step instructions and the products he used to achieve Nicole’s glamorous look..

For the SAG Awards, David showed off Nicole’s new solid bob hair cut with a sleek, super straight look.

"In order to achieve flawless straight hair, control is a must," says David, who started by warming a small amount of Instant Straight Smoothing Balm ($24.50), in the palms of his hands before applying it through the hair.


Next, he dried her hair with the nozzle attachment and a large round brush to smooth hair completely straight, sectioning hair first into top, sides and back. To begin, he started by drying the nape area first and then proceeded until her entire head was dry.

After creating a side part and to ensure sleek perfection, he finished the hair with IT&LY’s Racing Red Professional 1” Digital Iron before misting Miracle Elixir Hair Oil ($29.95) all over her hair to ensure healthy, sexy shine. “The trick is to spray from arm's length to ensure even, light coverage,” he says.

Finally, he smoothed away any flyaways by spraying Finished Styling Spray ($24.50) in the palms of his hands and gently patting over the crown.


Producer's Guild Awards
The Producer’s Guild Awards was held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 26, 2013 in Beverly Hills, California, and here Nicole Kidman was seen in  L’Wren Scott spring 2013 black lace gown with a peek-a-boo sexy fringe and flirty half up/half down hairstyle. Again, Nicole looked absolutely amazing!

To achieve the look, David blow dried her hair with a mixture of Whipped Volume Styling Mousse ($24.50), and Boho Beach Spray ($24.50). "These products give the hair a medium touchable hold with no build up, plus added shine," says David. Next, using a medium round brush, David created soft curls and a smooth rounded fringe.

To style, he created a dramatic side part for the fringe, sweeping the hair to one side. At the crown, he lightly back-combed the area and gently smoothed, drawing the sides and top into a sexy poof at the back. The back and nape hair had soft curls using Polished Crème Serum ($24.50) to create style definition. Finally, to finish, David lightly misted the hair with Finished Styling Spray ($24.50).

One of the most sought-after hair stylists in Hollywood, David has recently re-branded his hugely successful David Babaii hair care collection with a sleek new look and new and improved formulations that harness the combined power of science and nature to deliver exceptional hair care results.
