Get The Look: Naomi Watts’ Classic Updo

Abigail Bock


Every year we look to red carpet season for the best in celebrity hair and makeup inspiration, and this year’s Oscars didn’t disappoint. We particularly loved Naomi Watts’ playful twist on a traditional French roll, so we tapped our beauty expert, Stephanie Flor, to recreate the look originally created for Naomi by celebrity stylist Giannadrea using Pantene products. Follow these steps to achieve this Grace Kelly-inspired updo at home!

Step 1: Start by working a dime-sized amount of Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 BB Crème into wet hair. Then, rough-dry before using a round brush to blow-dry hair smooth all over.

Step 2: Once hair is blown out smooth, section hair and apply Pantene Pro-V Stylers Heat Protection Spray before using a 1-inch curling iron to create curls through the entire head of hair.

Step 3: After curling, run fingers through the hair to achieve effortless volume and waves. This is ideal for creating Naomi’s romantic and natural style.

Step 4: Add soft, yet edgy texture by applying another dime-sized dollop of Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 BB Crème to finger-combed waves.

Step 5: Begin building the updo by making a side part, then twist sections of hair back into a loose low bun, securing each twist with bobby pins.

Step 6: Finish the look by applying Pantene Pro-V Stylers Flexible Hold Hairspray.
