FHI Heat and Stylus Hairstyling Art Director, Sean James, creates the look for Cadillac Oscars 2020 Pre-Party for Nominees

 

For the 5th consecutive year, Sean James was tasked with creating the perfect hair and makeup look for the Cadillac Oscar event at the Chateau Marmont, an annual event held for Oscar nominees known to be one of the top events covered by Variety Magazine. The Cadillac staff had to look pristine. Of course, the look was set to mirror the timeless sophistication of Cadillac. Here's how to get this glam look...  

What you need:

How to do it:

1. Blow the hair straight with Full Blown Mousse

2. Flat iron the hair

3. Part your hair in the center and add Sheer Remedy by Stylus throughout your locks to mimic the effortless shine you see on a brand new Cadillac car

4. Pull your hair into a low ponytail secured at the nape of your neck with a fabric-coated elastic band

 

As there were 30 Cadillac staff who needed hair and makeup, our team of 5 artists (Stacy Rosas, Giovanna Paramo Lieb, Ashley Oboyle, and Rebecca Vandervort) used an array of FHI Heat tools and styling products. Men had their hair slicked back in the Old Hollywood style (like Clarke Gable) with Total Control and Stay Put Stylus hairsprays.

 

 

As for the female staff, the makeup included an intense smokey eye. To achieve the look, our makeup artists fully covered the lids with Smokey Puter Shadow. The eyelids looked nearly black, except for a little shimmer in the center of the lid. We used eyeliner around the lid and on the waterline to magnify the look. We added a strong pointed blow and a blended skin tone for a clean look and topped it off with a light, natural lip.
