More than a few celebrities skipped the awards show last night and went straight to the party. Among them was the always-lovely Natalie Portman. Before she stepped out for the evening, Nexxus Creative Director Kevin Mancuso gave her this pretty updo with a sweet, face-framing curl. To find out how to get the look, keep reading.
While Natalie's hair was wet, Mancuso worked Nexxus Lavish Body, a volumizing spray gel, from roots to ends. He then blew her hair dry with a paddle brush, lifting at the roots. While her hair was still warm, he transferred one-inch sections onto Velcro rollers. He let the rollers cool completely, then took them out and tousled her hair with a bit of smoothing lotion.
Next, Mancuso took out a one-inch front section of hair, pulled the rest back into a ponytail, and used bobby pins to create a soft chignon. To polish the look, he used a flat iron to smooth the front curl and help position hair around Natalie's face. Finally, he set the style with a light misting of Nexxus Comb Thru ($11) hair spray.
