Sandra Bullock stunned fans who watched her stroll across the red carpet in a daring red Vera Wang dress upon her arrival at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre on Sunday, February 27th, 2011 in Hollywood, California.
Celebrity Hairstylist David Babaii had the pleasure to work with the Oscar presenter this evening and he tells us he created a “Texture Infusion” look for Bullock’s 2011 Oscar look. If you want to achieve this look on yourself, this is how Mr. Babaii created the look.
Start with a clean canvas by rinsing all the shampoo and conditioner from the hair. After gently towel drying, David applied Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment (now available at www.sephora.com) to the hair, using a wide tooth comb to evenly distribute the product.

With the IT&LY HAIRFASHION Digital Styling Iron, he took random half inch sections starting at the front and twisted the hair. Once the strand is twisted, take your flat iron and press down the entire length of the strand to set a wavy texture in.
Allow each strand to cool and release itself naturally. David continued taking half inch sections throughout the front half of her head until he achieved enough texture. When complete, additional Pequi Oil was added to his hands to finger comb the hair back into a ponytail above the nape area.
He then wrapped her hair around the band and secured with bobby pins allowing any loose hairs to fall naturally. This will give you David’s version of “Texture Infusion” which is a combination of texture enhanced with Pequi Oil to achieve a brilliant shine.
Sandra is definitely one of my favorite stars on the red carpet tonight!
