Marion Cotillard Oscars hair: step-by-step tutorial from her stylist

How-To: Marion Cotillard's Oscars Hair

The belle Marion Cotillard is sitting pretty right now. Her Oscar win means that we'll be seeing a lot more of this Gallic gal, and considering that she's as stylish as she is talented, that's a good thing for all of us. Last night, she looked softly stunning; I especially loved how her soft, flowing curls framed her face. Stylist Robert Vetica for Frederic Fekkai gave me the scoop on how he created this look.

"Marion changes her look a lot simply because I think she can," he said of his inspiration. "Her beauty lies in the spirit with which she carries herself. You look at her and want to get to know her." For this award-worthy style, he gave Marion a modern take on Veronica Lake's iconic waves. For his tips on recreating the look at home,

  • Step one: First, apply a protective styling serum or spray to give hair shine and hold; Robert used Fekkai Coiff Shape and Set Mist ($28) on Marion.
  • Step two: Blow-dry hair smooth in the desired direction. In Marion's case, Robert gave her a deep left part. The left side was blown away from her face and from that same part, it was dried side to front on the right side.
  • Step three: Take a 3/4-inch barrel curling iron, and create sections around the perimeter of the head at the neck. Start curling on the left, behind the ear, working around the back.
  • Step four: When you get to the front, curl the hair front and sideways towards the back. Robert's tip: "To really achieve this loose wave, curl big sections." Finish with hairspray; Robert used Fekkai Coiff Fini Sheer Hold ($23) on Marion's hair.
