While this year’s Oscars had a lot of memorable moments on stage, some of the best of last night’s events seemed to happen off stage. Missed the live televised event? Take a quick stroll through your social media feed, and you’ll quickly see all the glitz and the glams some of Hollywood’s best had to offer. One look, in particular, everyone is obsessed with? Kim Kardashian’s set at the annual Vanity Fair Oscars after party.
The SKIMS founder wore a jaw-dropping neon blue bodycon Balenciaga dress with a train on the red carpet. As for accessories, she finished the look with a pair of small silver sunglasses, glitzy earrings, and black-heeled boots. To help bring everything together, Kim leveraged her signature style—a sleek, slicked-back ponytail courtesy of celebrity hairstylist and Color Wow’s Global Creative Director Chris Appleton. If you never heard of the celeb-approved brand (Jennifer Lopez is a fan, too!), it’s actually super affordable—nearly every product used on Kim’s hair last night was under $30.
And, it gets even better. Appleton graciously shared his step-by-step guide to acing the slicked-back pony of our dreams. If you want to achieve Kardashian’s look at home here’s what you’ll need:
First, Appleton applied Color Wow One Minute Transformation ($24, Amazon) throughout Kardashian’s hair to eliminate any frizz. Then, he separated a triangle section of hair from temple to temple to clip it back away from the face. After that, he used Tangle Teezer’s Ultimate Styler ($14, Amazon) brush to slick her hair back in a ponytail. (Pro tip: For perfect placement, he recommends following the eye line.)
Next, you’ll want to apply Color Wow Pop + Lock Frizz Control and Glossing Serum ($20, Amazon) directly on a detangling brush—Chris used Tangle Teezer’s Ultimate Detangler ($14, Amazon) brush for that sleek AF look. Basically, that disperses the serum evenly through the pony and will give your style that silky, nearly-wet finish to the hair.
Finally, secure everything in place with a spritz of Color Wow’s Shine Spray ($29, Sephora) to your hair. For finishing touches, Chris sprayed Kim’s hairline with Color Wow’s Root Cover-Up ($34, Amazon) to make the hair appear fuller, then tamed baby hairs with Tangle Teezer’s Ultimate Styler brush ($16, Ulta).
