Kidman's Billboard Braid
Celebrity Hairstylist David Babaii for
Couture Colour Designs bohemaian
braid for Nicole Kidman at the2011 Billboard Music Awards
To achieve: David always begins every red carpet look with clean hair followed by applying Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment (now available at www.sephora.com ) to the entire head. (Pequi Oil is derived from the Pequi fruit, known for centuries as the beauty secret of the Amazon Rainforest.) The formula absorbs instantly and gives the hair a natural luster and shine. Once applied to Nicole’s hair, then parted the hair in the left and rough dried the hair. He used a one inch curling iron on the bangs, he continuously wrapped and released each strand, very quickly and then pulling on the ends to create more of a wave than a full curl. He rotated the curling iron in multiple directions to add dimension. He then took the hair to the right side and created a long side braid. After he was done, he applied an additional bit of the Pequi Oil Treatment from the part of the hair to mid-length to smooth the hair and prevent flyaway’s.
To get Nicole’s beautiful auburn colour hair, David Babaii also recommends Couture Colour Luxe Blend Crème Colour Hair Colour in Auburn, for a multidimensional red that lasts.
