INSPIRATION | “Ladies in Hollywood are either fashionable or glamorous. Michelle is fashionably glamorous.” Chris McMillan, Celebrity hairstylist for Couture Colour
KEY TIP/TECHNIQUE | The secret to any short hairstyle is a great cut. Additional to that, hair needs to look healthy. For the Academy Awards, Chris first applied a dime size of the Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment to wet hair. This product is perfect for Michelle’s short hair because it instantly absorbs, leaving her blonde hair fresh and vibrant without weighing it down. “I am often afraid of oils on blondes but the Pequi Oil Treamtent keeps her blonde vibrant without changing the color.” Says McMillan He let her hair dry naturally while she was getting her makeup done, then added a bit of a Volumizing Mousse and then dried her hair with a 1 ½ inch round brush with soft bristles because I believe hair is delicate.
