Many celebrities chose to not play it safe at last night’s 87th Academy Awards with the red carpet brimming with voluminous gowns and undercut do’s. Contributing to the bold looks of the Oscar-goers was Tracey Cunningham, Redken Celebrity Colorist, who helped Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, and Dakota Johnson, among others, prepare for the awards. Below, Tracey shares her secrets for how she achieved her client’s looks using Redken color.
- Emma Stone: Tracey applied Redken Shades EQ Cream to add shine and achieve a brighter version of Emma’s red color. Knowing that all eyes would be on the Birdman star, Tracey ensured Emma’s hair had maximum shine by finishing with Shades EQ Gloss, a no-ammonia, no-lift formula that acts as a glaze, color refresher and color corrector.
- Naomi Watts: To brighten one of Hollywood’s favorite blondes, Tracey used Redken’s NEW Blonde Idol Blue Oil Lightening System oil lightener from the Professional Haircolor Collection (coming to salons this March) to create subtle babylights for added blonde dimension.
- Dakota Johnson: Adding dimension and richness to the locks of the Fifty Shades of Grey star, Tracey used the no-ammonia Shades EQ Cream to create Dakota’s lowlights. Tracey finished with a glaze, Shades EQ Gloss, to provide an added healthy shine.
To continue to protect the haircolor after their service, Tracey recommends that her clients use Redken Color Extend Magnetics Sulfate-Free Haircare to seal in color and deliver maximum vibrancy and shine.
