Do you love A-lister and Oscar-nominated actress Amy Adams’ elegant French twist? The Advice Sisters do, too!  She looks stunning from head-to-toe at tonight’s 86th annual Academy Awards! To compliment her beautiful navy dress, Celebrity Hairstylist Renato Campora for Kérastase used products from the brand’s Couture Styling collection. “We wanted the hair to compliment the dress. It’s very classic and elegant,” says Renato.

How to Create Amy’s Look:
Step 1: On wet hair apply Kérastase Mousse Bouffante
Step 2: Part the hair on the left side, distributing Kérastase Forme Fatale from mid-lengths to ends and blow dry with a round brush
Step 3: Take the top section and separate it from the rest of the hair
Step 4: Create a French twist with the remaining back section and pin into place with bobby pins
Step 5: Apply Kérastase Forme Fatale throughout all sections for optimal shine
Step 6: Curl the remaining top section with a 1″ barrel iron to create waves. Let the hair cool and brush through
Step 7: Pull the top lengths back, combining them into the French Twist and pin
Step 8: Polish off the look with Kérastase Laque Couture
Products Used:
  • Mousse Bouffante: Volumizing mousse that envelops the fiber to thicken strands for all-over volume
  • Formel Fatale: Blow-dry gel with an extra-fine texture that perfectly shapes hair to give all over volume and body that lasts
  • Laque Couture: Micro-fine diffusion hairspray that sets all styles in place with a flexible long-lasting hold
