Anna Kendrick Oscars 2010: Pictures and Hair Tutorial

Get Anna Kendrick's Oscars Hairstyle

"Anna wanted to look young and modern," stylist Craig Gangi said of the updo he created for the Oscar-nominated actress. This undone chignon is as easy to create as it is elegant. Here's how he did it.

First, he prepared Anna's damp hair with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream. After blow-drying, he used a medium-barrel iron to curl hair loosely. Next, he pulled hair back into a deconstructed bun and secured it with pins. Don't worry about getting it perfect. "I wanted her hair to move, like she did it herself," Gangi explained.

Great hair is all about the details, and in this case, Gangi created a small braid for texture. "I took three very small sections before twisting the rest of the hair into a bun," he said. "I twisted each into a braid, then twisted those into one larger braid that went above the bun." As a finishing touch, he misted hair with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray. The end result was an updo with a twist — a simple, pretty style that wowed the red carpet.
