Nicolekidman I thought Nicole Kidman looked hot at the 2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday night. So refreshing to see her hair loose and a smile on her face. Her updos tend to look so…uptight. Lest you think she just towel dried and ran out the door, celeb hairstylist David Babaii gives the play-by-play in a press release delivered bright and early this morning. Color: Gingered Toffee Red, applied "with a combination of deposit-only color, a foil-out reverse highlighting technique and a sulfate-free glaze." (I'm lost too.) To style, David says he gently towel dried the hair and sprayed Bohemian Beach Spray throughout. Next, he "gently rough dried" (thinking he missed the oxymoron) the hair moving his hands in various directions to create texture. Once dry, he fashioned a center part and divided tresses into 4 sections (sides, back crown & nape). Starting at the nape area, he alternated between 1-inch and 1 1/2 inch ceramic curling irons (that half an inch makes all the dif), taking "V" shaped partings. He then wrapped hair around the inside of the barrel, holding for 10 seconds then gently releasing the curl. With each alternating curl, David slid his fingers up the curl to gently create a soft back combing effect and enhanced texture. After finishing the entire head, David used his fingers and added extra Bohemian Beach Spray to loosen the curls and highlight the richness of the hair color.
Now, all of this should convince me that a new product will make absolutely no difference in my appearance, without David Babaii's team to rough up my tresses in some four hour process. Still, I want that Bohemian Beach Spray.

Just got off the phone with hair god Oribe (think Jennifer Lopez and every super model and movie star. Ever.) who made me feel better about my lifelong bad hair day by telling me that Kate Winslet can't do much with her own hair. Cameron Diaz, however, can. The bitch. I'll have his candid comments on Victoria Beckham, Megan Fox, Jessica Simpson and others in the Pioneer Press next week. But I just have to share this one now: Kate Gosselin. All he knows about embattled "Jon & Kate Plus 8" star is "someone had an affair." But the hair? He likes it! "These days, it's all about being a character. Sexy in the front; crazy in the back. It suits her."
Oribe's new product line will be available at Spalon Montage in June.
