As much as I enjoy a good rookie, Oscar night is all about Hollywood royalty, and when it comes to Hollywood royalty, there's one lady who always understands how to dress the part... Nicole Kidman, who was nominated for "best actress" for her performance in Being The Ricardos, wore an Armani PrivÃ© pale blue gown at the 94th Academy Awards that made her look like she was ready to seize her castle. It's no surprise, given that the actress has been a regular on red carpets for decades. Nicole finished the look by pulling her strawberry hair into a lovely side chignon. Nicole used the hair oil to Nicole's moist hair after washing it with shampoo and conditioner and blow-drying it with a medium-sized boar bristle brush. Make sure that your bangs are side-swept and you are ready to take on your night!
You should execute a formal/evening makeup application when it comes to your makeup. A smokey eye is a great place to start. To make your eyes pop, even more, use fake lashes. Finish with a dramatic lip color like Nicole did, or go for something a little more subtle. Remember to highlight and contour your face and neck area to give the appearance of a flawless oval face shape, and you're ready for your night out like an Oscar royalty queen as well!

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends.
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.
To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.
Take one section of hair from one side and secure it at the back of your head with a pin. Repeat on the other side to form this style.
