In Ke Huy Quan‘s Oscar-winning, breakout Everything Everywhere All at Once role, he plays a secret agent/sad suburban dad (you have to see the movie). In real life, he’s a movie star with movie star hair. Celebrity groomer Anissa Salazar, who was hair lead for the film as well, created a timeless hairstyle for the immediately dated 95th Annual Academy Awards champagne-colored carpet. We expect it to be the blueprint for spring and summer events.
Keep scrolling for the steps Salazar took to style Quan’s hair with Andis tools and Tecuane haircare products.
Get the Look
- To achieve this look I began with the Andis reSURGE Shaver ($110.00) for a smooth and clean shave. The titanium plates are flexible and set you up for a tight shave, where the head of the shaver can hug the contour of the face. This amazing feature is key in not missing any straggling hairs!
- Next, I began removing bulk quickly using my cordless reVITE Clipper ($200.00), then trimming with my shears. Afterward, I cleaned up the nape and around the ears using the beSPOKE Trimmer ($250.00), using a point-cutting motion to take out any additional weight and then using the reSURGE Shaver on the neck and nape for a clean finish. These trimmers are great to get a precise, razor-sharp line.
- Then, I prepped the scalp using Tecuane Esperanza Scalp Tonic ($66.00). This tonic provides instant hydration and acts as a non-greasy primer. I completed the look by blow drying the hair 70% dry using the flat wrapping technique, and round brushing to over-direct in the opposite direction to achieve height and volume.
- Finally, I polished the look with lightweight and matte pomade!
