The Oscars 2015 may have occurred four days ago, and you’re still gushing over the latest hairstyles spotted on your favorite Hollywood starlets. Sure, their healthy, effortless locks are anything but simple to achieve, but Miami Beach master hairstylist and salon owner Danny Jelaca—who’s worked with A-List beauties such as Naomi Campbell, Cameron Diaz and Kelly Preston—has the 1-2-3 steps on making those impossible ‘dos possible.
**Below are Danny Jelaca’s how-to’s on achieving looks seen on Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon, Keira Knightley and J. Lo.**
Jessica Chastain was flawless from top to bottom with her hair tucked behind her ears for a simple, yet retro chic look. For a loose-hair style, Danny Jelaca recommends creating soft waves at the ends using a large barrel iron and creating a lightly teased crown with Leonor Greyl Voluforme Styling Spray. Finish off the tucked-in look by putting the very front toward the back, and you’ve got yourself an Oscars-worthy ‘do.
Reese Witherspoon was ultra glam with her long waves and hair parted down the middle. To achieve Reese Witherspoon’s timeless hairstyle, Danny Jelaca recommends the Balmain Hair Large Round Brush to create polished waves, finishing off the semi-voluminous look with Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice.
Keira Knightley was ethereal in gorgeous soft waves and a Chanel headband. To look as heavenly as Keira Knightley—or close to it—Danny Jelaca recommends Leonor Greyl’s Condition Naturelle to add volume as well as Leoner Greyl’s Eclat Naturel Styling Cream to soften and shine the hair.
Jennifer Lopez was super chic with a youthful high ponytail. Danny Jelaca recommends using Leonor Greyl’s Gel a l’hibiscus to slick back the hair, placing the ponytail exactly in the middle and adding extensions for length. Don’t forget to hide the band by wrapping strands of hair around it. Complete the look with Leonor Greyl’s Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice.
