Celebrity hair stylist Mark Townsend reveals how he created Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence’s award-winning hair for the 85th Annual Academy Awards.

Jennifer Lawrence made a glamorous statement on the Oscar red carpet in a strapless Dior Haute Couture gown, but Best Actress Oscar-Award winner for Silver Linings Playbook’s hair and makeup definitely elevated her look to princess status.

Even though Lawrence joked to press that getting ready for Oscar night was an easy affair, she got help from a great team of stylists. As a member of her glam squad, Dove celebrity stylist Mark Townsend created an up-do that perfectly complemented Lawrence’s strapless gown.

“Jennifer Lawrence is a dream to work with, she is so unbelievably fun and inspiring,” said Townsend.

Here’s how to create the style:

  • For Jennifer’s Oscars hair style, I started by applying a few drops of Dove Nourishing Oil Care Anti-Frizz Serum to her damp hair and combed through. This serum is loaded with natural almond and coconut oils to give the hair extra moisture and shine.
  • Next, I added a large dollop of Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Mousse to her hair and blow dried with a large round brush.
  • To give the hair texture and shine I added a nickel size of Dove Style+Care Frizz-Proof Cream-Serum in my hands and then raked through the hair. Then, I took random pieces from each side and loosely twisted them and pinned them together at the back of the head with eight bobby pins in crosses.
  • Then, I took the remaining hair and gathered it into a loose playful bun and finished as always with Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray.
