2009 Oscar’s Beauty: Marisa Tomei


{Image Source}

Is it just me or does Marisa Tomei seems to be frozen in time?  Tomei is as beautiful now, if not more beautiful, than she was back when she won her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for 1992’s My Cousin Vinny!

Tomei’s look at Sunday’s Academy Awards did not disappoint. Although there were some naysayers who found her gown too fussy, I thought the look overall was gorgeous. My favorite part of the look was the haphazard-but-thoughtfully-styled coif.

For the special night, Tomei looked to Frederic Fekkai’s Adir Abergel to create a hairstyle that would complement the ivory gown. Abergel’s inspiration for the hair was the cascades of soft movement winding along the twists and turns of her dress.

Here are his tips on how to get the look:

* Start by applying Fekkai More All-Day Density Styling Whip ($25 US) to roots and Fekkai Coiff Perfecteur Anti-Frizz Silkening Crème ($25 US) from roots to ends
* Blow dry hair with a round brush and pin it in place as it cools down
* Take the hair and pin it loosely with hair clips in desired twists and turns. Make sure that the bangs are on an angle and look soft with some loose hair falling naturally.
* Using hair and bobby pins, place them to hold the shape and remove the hairclips
* Finish with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($10 US).
