Hair by:

My vision for the entire look was for it to feel really luxe: healthy, glowing hair with rich color styled into an amazing sexy bob. Charlize is an incredibly creative artist who is fearless and willing to experiment. When I presented her the concept to go brunette for he Oscars, she totally trusted me. I think what’s really beautiful is that hair is one of your greatest accessories and changing your hair colour is an amazing way to play with your look.”

Once the hair was towel dried, he used a volumising product at the roots to create memory and volume that would prime her hair for the perfect blow out. out. Next, he created a deep side part and applied defrizz cream. Then, he blow-dried the hair with the ghd air® hair dryer ($265) and a round brush to create bounce and movement.

To finish the look, Adir used the ghd platinum+ styler ($380) to create a beautiful, shiny finish.
