Get Your Hair Done ...

... like Freida and Dev at the Oscars courtesy of celebrity stylist Jeffrey Paul for Aveda. In case it remained a mystery to them, Freida and Dev should know that they have officially "arrived" when there are press releases solely dedicated to the subject of their hair. A word to the wise, do not be floored by the amount of product used to achieve these styles. This is "event hair" and as such is designed with an eye to maintaining hold over the course of several hours. Without further ado, here are the hair breakdowns for our Slumdog stars. Enjoy!
Celebrity stylist, Jeffrey Paul, created a fresh and elegant red carpet hair look for Frieda Pinto. Radiant in John Galliano, Pinto's hair is divided into three parts and twisted back into an architectural, couture flower shape on the right side of the head. "This look has a beautiful architecture; hair is twisted back into a youthful, feminine flower shape that complements Frieda's face shape and stunning Galliano gown." Here's how to get Pinto's look:
  • Start with Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Shampoo and Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Clay Conditioner.
  • Mix a cocktail of Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam and Aveda Light Elements Defining Whip. Work the product into wet hair to add texture and volume. "When creating an updo, it's important to use products that give thickness and body," said Paul. "Pinto's hair already has a lot of shine. The cocktail of Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam and Aveda Light Elements Defining Whip provided just the right amount of hold, body and texture without weighing hair down."
  • Blow dry hair back to add lift and height at the roots.
  • Create a left side part and divide hair into three sections: three quarters of hair in one section on the right and the remaining hair into two smaller sections.
  • Pull the right section of hair back into a low ponytail just behind the right ear above the nape of the neck.
  • Twist the ponytail, working Aveda Light Elements Defining Whip into hair. Wrap the ponytail around the base, creating a flower shape. Secure in place with pins.
  • Work Aveda Light Elements Defining Whip into each of the remaining sections and twist back and around the flower shape, creating a layered, rose-like effect. "The three twists flow together for beautiful movement," said Paul.
  • Finish the look with Aveda Air Control Hair Spray.
  • Lastly, shake the head a bit to loosen up the look and provide a sense of natural movement.
Paul used the Aveda Men Pure-Formance hair care line to create a simple yet architectural look with natural movement for Patel.
  • Begin by washing hair with Aveda Men Pure-Formance Shampoo and Aveda Men Pure-Formance Cond Pure-Formance Conditioner.
  • Work Aveda Pure-Formance Grooming Clay into hair with both hands to add shape and texture, pulling the front of hair up and bringing the sides forward. "This is hair in motion, an architectural look," said Paul.
  • "Dev loves Aveda Pure-Formance Grooming Clay because it gives texture and hold without heavy shine. Dev's hair already has a lot of shine to it so I wanted something lightweight and matte yet strong enough to add shape and let me really play with movement."
  • Finish with Aveda Air Control Hair Spray to hold the look.
