Celebrity hairstylist Bryce Scarlett works with the likes of Lily Aldridge, Gigi Hadid, Natalie Portman, and Margot Robbie. (Scroll through his Instagram account to see all of the famous faces that he fixes hair for.) He works most often, it seems, with Robbie, whose hair he styled throughout the entire 2018 award season as she attended events and ceremonies for her movie I, Tonya. To make a long story short, he's the man behind some of Robbie's most standout hairstyles, including the soft, polished waves that the actress wore to attend this year's Academy Awards, which took place just a few weeks ago.
At first glance (and second… and third…) the style looks like it would incredibly hard to achieve. After all, Robbie didn't seem to have a single strand out of place as she walked the red carpet. Scarlett, though, is here to prove that it's simple enough to replicate for yourself—at home, even. Believe it or not, a celebrity stylist is not required (for this particular hairstyle, at least). All it takes is a certain type of flat iron, a little bit of time, and two all-star products.
"I'm going to take the Dry Texture Spray from Moroccanoil and go through, starting at the root and focusing mostly at the root with a little bit on the ends. This kind of gives a bit of texture to it and also really helps everything hold." — Bryce Scarlett
"Once you've gone through with the texture spray at the roots, we're going to take the Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray in Medium, which is the lightest finish, and focus on mainly the midlength and ends to give it some shine and separation. This is one of my favorite products. It's not just a hair spray. There's also argan oil in it, so it really does give you a lot of shine and a smooth texture. It doesn't give you that tackiness that a lot of classic hair sprays do." — Bryce Scarlett
