Got glamour on the brain? You’re not alone! We do too, thanks to Hollywood’s awards season. While most of us aren’t exactly attending red carpet events or getting our photos snapped by the paparazzi, we can’t deny that we’ve daydreamed about what we’d wear to a big awards ceremony — and how we’d style our hair, obviously.
The red carpet will smell like Aveda on Sunday, February 24th as celebrity stylists Laura Polko and Harry Josh style their celeb clients’ hair in preparation for the big award show! You can follow along in our Instagram Stories as they get glammed up, and if you want to create your very own Hollywood hair look at home, stock your toolkit with these styling favorites.
Best First Act: the Paddle Brush
Every great style starts with a great brush: the beloved Aveda Paddle Brush is where to begin. Its extended bristles help detangle and reduce stress to hair and scalp during blow drying and styling, and it’s lightweight to make blow drying feel more like a treat and less like a chore.
Best Editing: Speed of Light Blow Dry Accelerator
Short on time? No worries! Speed of Light Blow Dry Accelerator protects your hair against heat damage and reduces breakage from blow drying by 93%. It also reduces blow dry time; three out of five women agreed that it cut their drying time in half!
Best Supporting Styler: Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair
This leave-in treatment is a must for instantly repairing damaged hair. It detangles and protects your hair from breakage and damage due to heat styling temps of up to 450 degrees.
Best Protection in a Humid Climate: Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother
Wearing your hair sleek and straight for your red carpet event? Start off smooth with Style-Prep Smoother, which helps defend against humidity for up to 12 hours. Apply a few pumps to your hands and work through your wet hair, then style as usual. You can also pair it with its family members, like Glossing Straightener, Naturally Straight and Nourishing Styling Crème.
Best Scene Stealer: Brilliant Spray-On Shine
If you’re hitting the red carpet, you better be shining! Add a hint of pure shine to your finished hair style, tame frizz and eliminate flyaways with Brilliant Spray-On Shine, a must-have for any major hair moments.
Best Finale: Air Control
No style is complete without the flexible, lasting hold of the iconic Air Control hair spray! It gives your hair the light, workable hold you want while imparting a truly award-winning aroma of certified organic lavender, bergamot and palmarosa. Your look will stay put without feeling heavy, helmet-y or crunchy — and we think that definitely deserves a trophy or two.
