"It's almost like sculpting when you’re creating the wave shape," says hairstylist Mara Roszak.

"Dreamy and structured" are the first words that come to mind when Mara Roszak describes Emma Stone's hair for the SAG Awards on Sunday night. "We had a fitting and her hair was down and it just looked really good and cool," says Roszak of Stone's Alexander McQueen gown. "There is a movement to the dress that I wanted to incorporate in the hair."

Using a dab of L’Oreal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Oil Lustrous Oil Serum on her palms, Roszak worked it through mid-lengths and ends of Stone's hair before blow-drying it with a boar-bristle brush. Parting all hair to one side, Roszak then used the GHD Curve Classic curl iron to curl the hair all in the same direction, toward the face, and give it shape. (It looked like "a wave in the ocean," she says).


Words can't describe my excitement Here's a try

With the GHD Gold professional iron, the stylist then smoothed away any kinks and frizz, without taking away volume. After misting the hair with L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray (a key step in almost every look she creates, says Roszak), she brushed through Stone's waves while applying a layer of L’Oreal Paris Hair Expert Nutri-Gloss High Shine Glossing Mist.

"It adds shine, but it also makes the hair easier to brush through and helps me form the shape. ... It’s almost like sculpting when you're creating the wave shape," she says. "It’s really about working with your hands and the brush to make the hair do what you want it to do. As long as you have the curl set, it just takes some hand-sculpting."

Using a few pin-curl clips, Roszak set the look in place and let it sit during Stone's makeup application, before removing the clips and dusting the hair with a final round of hairspray for hold. "It's high shine and has a soft structure in the waves," says Roszak of the Old Hollywood-esque look. "[Emma] also just looks like herself; she naturally has a way about her that feels like she's from another time."
