How To Do Eva Longoria's Hair at the 2009 Screen Actors Guild Awards

Ken Paves Dishes on Eva Longoria's SAG Awards Hairstyle

It's clear that Eva Longoria and her longtime hairstylist, Ken Paves, have that certain client/stylist chemistry. "She is always willing to try something new and have fun," he said. "We laugh a lot." As for the curled updo last night? Paves looked to Longoria's peach chiffon gown for inspiration. "I saw this dress a couple weeks ago and instantly thought Grace Kelly 'Longoria,'" he explained. "I wanted to create something reminiscent of old-world glamour that was modern and would appear effortless."
While an appointment with Ken Paves might not be a reality, I've got the second best thing — hairstyling tips straight from the source. "The most important thing is to work from your natural texture and keep it simple," he advised. "It is very chic to look effortless." I couldn't agree more. To get the how-to from Paves,


  • Paves created texture on Longoria's partially air-dried hair using Ken Paves Healthy Hair Volumizing Hair Spray ($24).
  • Next, he tousled her hair with his fingers while blowing it dry, allowing her part to fall naturally.
  • When her hair was dry, he used a 3/4-inch curling iron with random sectioning to encourage a natural texture. He also focused the direction of the curl down and away from the part.
  • Using Ken Paves Healthy Hair Shine Serum ($30), he broke up the wave by running his hands through her hair from roots to ends.
  • Next he broke up the curl further with a mixed bristle Mason Pearson brush and pulled her hair back loosely, pinning it with bobby pins.
  • For the finishing touch, he set the hair with Ken Paves Healthy Hair Strong Hold Shaping Hair Spray ($24).
