Kate Winslet's Futuristic Hair at the Oscars: 81st Academy Awards

Kate Winslet not only snagged an Oscar this evening, she got double glances for setting a futuristic yet retro glam-hair trend that’s going to be talked about among hair gurus at the water cooler for decades.

At first glance, one thinks of a Hitchcock heroine “aha” moment for the hair stylist, and this guess –as it turns out –is not far from the truth.

Frederic Fekkai stylist Renato Campora thought of “A modern day Grace Kelly that compliments her total look and silhouette” while doing this look. “A wavy texture with a dynamic shape” is how Campora describes this unusually styled bob.


Start by applying FEKKAI MORE ALL DAY DENSITY STYLING WHIP on wet hair. Blow-dry smooth with the FEKKAI EXTRA LARGE ROUND BRUSH to create some volume. Then use a one inch curling iron and let it set for 20 minutes. Brush it through and use the FEKKAI COIFF MAGNIFIQUE ULTRA LIGHT FINISHING CRÈME at the ends to help roll hair under. Finish with FEKKAI SHEER HOLD HAIRSPRAY.
