Description

We let you know how to copy Nicole Kidman's Stepford Wives-style hairdo. The movie was made ages ago but Nicole Kidman was spotted wearing a Stepford Wives style hairdo at the 70th Golden Globe Awards ceremony. Looking as elegant as ever, Nicole appeared much younger than her years. Maybe it's because she avoids getting a suntan and therefore has gorgeous glowing skin. But, it is also down to her youthful and stylish hairdo. If you are over forty and crave a fun, feminine style to wear, this one may be perfect for you.

Nicole's stunning strawberry locks are left out to sit on the shoulders. Gorgeous waves are added to the mid-lengths to ends for shape and movement making it the perfect style to compliment a long face. Product is needed for hold and shine.

This hairstyle looks best on oval, oblong, square, and diamond face shapes. Ladies with straight hair can achieve this look with a few simple styling products (mousse, hairspray) and a curling wand or rollers. Those with some texture in their hair can get this look as long as they don't mind blow-drying it straight, and then adding curls in the ends with a round brush.

The best part of this pristine look is the soft volume on the top. After styling the hair, add volume by teasing the roots on the crown of the head and then smooth the top layers over for a polished finish. Make sure to go for a a deep side part for maximum glam power!

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Placeholder articles

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Part to the Left

Placeholder articles

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.

3. Part Hair in a Zigzag

Placeholder articles

Using the corner of your comb, create a straight part and then place your comb at the hairline and drag it through your hair, crisscrossing from left to right as you go. When you reach your crown, lift the comb up and then split the hair to each side, pulling it down to reveal your zigzag part.

4. Use a Large Radial Brush

Placeholder articles

A large radial brush is usually used on long straight hair types or to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

5. Blow-dry the Back Under

Placeholder articles

To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.

6. Blow-dry the Sides Under

Placeholder articles

To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.

7. Use a Large Curling Iron

Placeholder articles

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.

8. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

Placeholder articles

Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.

9. Piece the Ends Using Wax

Placeholder articles

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

10. Apply Smoothing Shine

Placeholder articles

Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.

11. Apply Hairspray

Placeholder articles

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
