Using celebrity hairstyles as a guide for our own hairstyles is a great way to find trendy looks that work well with particular hair types. If you liked Nicole Kidman’s loose waves from the 2009 Country Music Awards, you are in luck. Celebrity hairdresser David Babaii has kindly decided to share his step-by-step tips on how to get Nicole Kidman’s loose waves hairstyle from the 2009 CMA’s.
First things first, David had Nicole shampoo and condition her hair using To get started, I had Nicole shampoo and condition her hair with David Babaii for WildAid Amplifying Shampoo and Conditioner to add some volume.
“Remember my motto: rinse, rinse, rinse so you have a clean canvas,” Babaii says. “This is a must for achieving a ‘good hair day!’”
After shampooing and conditioning, David Babaii sprayed Nicole Kidman’s entire head with David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray. He then scrunched the styling product into her hair.
“This gives just the right amount of texture and movement,” Babaii explains.
To add even more volume, Babaii moved Nicole Kidman’s hair in various directions while blow drying it. After Kidman’s hair was dry, he separated her hair into three different parts: top, sides, and back, while leaving the nape of her neck area free.
“This is vital because you need to have constant control over the hair at all times,” Babaii says. “I used a 1 ½-inch sized FHI Heat Ceramic curling iron to create these luscious loose curls.”
To create natural looking curls while also hiding the partings of the hair, Babaii suggests taking alternating ‘V’ shaped partings and wrap the sections around the inside of the barrel, holding for 10 seconds. Then clip each curl and allow hair to cool.
To style your hair like Nicole Kidman’s hair from the 2009 Country Music Awards, David Babaii instructs that you should remove all the clips from your hair and then rub a bit of David Babaii for WildAid Hair Polish into your hands and fingertips.
“Gently run your fingers through the curls to loosen (no comb or brush, please!),” he explains. “Remember, your hands can be your best styling tools. To create these loose curls, take random sections and run your fingers through to separate and define.”
For the additional lift or volume at the scalp area as shown in Nicole Kidman’s CMA hairstyle, Babaii used David Babaii for WildAid Volcanic Ash Root Amplifier. Using his fingers, he lifted sections of hair for added volume and height.
To complete Nicole Kidman’s look for the 2009 Country Music Awards, Babaii sprayed David Babaii for WildAid Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray.
