Charlize Theron
The 89th Academy Awards


WHO: Charlize Theron

HAIR BY: Enzo Angileri

INSPIRATION: “The inspiration for Charlize’s hair was punk glamour but with a touch of Hollywood glamour.  We achieved this look with a pony tail.  The most important element of this style is to achieve all over shine and ensure that the hair looked healthy.”  


“After shampooing and conditioning the hair, I applied smoothing oil on the ends of the hair because we wanted the ends of the hair to be super silky and be able to reflect light. Then I used the ghd natural bristle radial brush with the ghd air® hairdryer to blow dry the hair completely and then created a well-defined part to the left. Next, I sectioned the hair into 5 areas from the front to the back.

Next, I used the ghd curve® classic wave wand, which was ideal because of its oval shape, to create an old Hollywood wave. Then I lightly brushed out the curls with my fingers to create loose curls. After I pulled all the hair back and smoothed out the hair on the sides using a bit more smoothing oil to achieve more shine. I then fastened all of the hair into a ponytail with an elastic. Lastly I used the ghd platinum styler to smooth out the ponytail and curved it little bit at the end. I finished the look with hairspray for an incredibly shiny and smooth finish.”
