Get Nicole Kidman’s Red Carpet Curls
Curls ruled the ACM Awards-here’s how you can get this look at home.
Everywhere you looked at the ACM, celebs were strutting curls. Nicole Kidman’s cascading curls was a gorgeous, romantic look.
Celebrity hairstylist David Babaii created the touchable date look style. Here’s how you can do it at home.
Beginning with a clean canvas and applying Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment from roots to ends, David gently rough dried the hair moving his hands in various directions to create natural texture and volume.

Once dry, he fashioned a side part and divided tresses into four sections (sides, top & nape). Starting at the nape area, he took one-inch sections throughout the head applying additional Pequi Oil to each.
Then, David then wrapped each section around two fingers forming a barrel type curl, pinning each with a bobby pin to the back of the head.
When all hair was curled and secured, he took his blow dryer and gave each wrapped curl a blast of hot air to allow the Pequi Oil to penetrate into the hair shaft for hold followed by a blast of cool air to set the curls.
David loves this technique as it allows him the ability to control the size of each curl.
Then, David took out all the clips, added more oil to his hands and finger combed her hair into loose wavy curls.
