I just got off the phone with Amanda Seyfried's hair stylist, Jenny Cho, who was busy running around "fine tuning her kit" for Oscar day. Besides working with Amanda, she's also doing Jennifer Gardner's hair on Sunday. Eagerly awaiting the red carpet, I got the scoop from Amanda's long time stylist about what we will be seeing on Sunday and her styling must-haves. After working with Amanda for about five years, Cho says, "When we get ready for an event like this it’s magical because everything comes together from the dress to the shoes to the makeup and the hair and there’s a moment where magic happens."
Being part of the Oscars this year is extra special as Les Miserables was nominated for Best Picture, so of course, eyes will be on her! As a tease to her dress, Cho explained it has aspects to it that are new for Amanda, hinting at the shape.
"On each red carpet event I want my clients to look their best and in doing so, sometimes hair or makeup have to sit back," she explains. However when I asked what would take center stage this Sunday, she simply stated, "Let's just say Amanda's wearing the whole look, it's not wearing her."
As for fine tuning her stylist kit, Cho's go-to products to create the Oscar-worthy style on Sunday will be Suave Professional Moroccan Infusion Aragan Styling Oil and their Lightweight Hairspray. The oil is a complete must-have, because it will be used from start to finish. First, on Amanda's damp hair to prep before a blow dry. "It helps me glide through it and allows me to start her hairstyle in the right direction," Cho explains. Then, as a finishing touch at the end to add shine and smooth fly aways.
