Formal events don’t always mean formal hairstyles! Lea Michele’s Oscar party top knot was sexy and chic, but it’s actually super easy to recreate on yourself.
No retro waves here! Lea Michele went modern and sexy for the Elton John Oscars party on Feb. 26.
Her style was done by longtime BFF and celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa. Sarah broke down the exact how to for us below:
“1. Use the Darby Clip by The Beachwaver Co. to section hair.
2. Flat iron all the hair with the Coast Pro Ceramic Iron.
3. With the On Set Styling Brush, pull hair into a ponytail and secure.
4. Twist into a bun or use The Half Up to create the perfect bun.
5. Finish with a smoothing creme.”
Sarah is the inventor of The Beachwaver, an automatic curling iron that changed my life! I use it every time I want sexy, beachy waves. It was used backstage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show two years in a row!
Sarah and Lea just had an EPIC girl’s trip to Hawaii, where they spent their days surfing, doing yoga and braiding each other’s hair! I mean, dream vacation, anyone?
Lea’s makeup was amazing, done by one of our faves Lauren Andersen. Her skin was glowing and highlighted to perfection. Her eyes were defined with liner and lashes and her lips were kept soft and neutral. So pretty!
