British actor Eddie Redmayne took the Oscars by storm this year, and not just because he won the award for Best Actor! He also happened to have one of our favorite celebrity hairstyles of the night, proving that textured 'dos are the perfect way to balance any black tie ensemble.
To recreate his look on your own hair, just follow the tutorial below.
Get the look
Starting with freshly washed, damp hair, apply a small amount of pomade evenly throughout.
Rough-dry with a blow-dryer on a medium heat to create a messy, windswept texture. Keep the dryer moving and lift the top section of hair while you dry it to get some extra height.
Next, place a small amount of gel on your fingers and gently rub your hands together to spread it out. Then, work it back through your hair in quick, sweeping motions.
Add more gel as needed but take care to use only the bare minimum to avoid overloading your hair. As you can see, Eddie's has has a subtle sheen that keeps his style completely low-key.
Before the gel sets, smooth the sides forward slightly around your ears, then muss and scrunch the hair on top with your hands to add more texture.
Double check the back in the mirror and use some extra gel for any necessary finishing touches. That's it!
Who said award winning A-list grooming needed to be difficult...
