Gal Gadot looked every bit the movie star at last night’s Academy Awards. In a pink and black Givenchy gown adorned with Tiffany & Co jewelry, the Wonder Woman star was all smiles at the award show. With makeup by Sabrina Bedrani and styling by Elizabeth Stewart, hairstylist Mark Townsend went with a sleek french twist to really showcase the actress’s beauty.

Using Dove products and Olivia Garden tools, Townsend wanted to create a classic look for the actress. Here’s how you can get the look straight from Townsend himself.

Step 1

Start with second day hair, and use Dove Dry Shampoo Wipes to go along the hairline to refresh the hair before beginning to style.

Step 2

Next, use the Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion Professional Hair Dryer to blow out the already dry hair, adding extra volume and lift to the second day hair.

You can purchase the OG Ceramic + Ion Hair Dryer at your fave beauty supplier, or Macy’s here.

Step 3

Once blown out with the Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion Professional Hair Dryer, liberally spray Dove Dry Conditioner throughout the hair to add shine. For a more humid day, the dry conditioner keeps the cuticle closed and fights humidity while maintaining shine.

Step 4

Next, add volume by applying the Dove Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo at the roots, and then back comb for a long-lasting lift. Then, gather all of the hair into a classic French twist, securing the style with about 50 bobby pins. (Yep, 50!)

Step 5

To finish off the look, coat a reusable mascara wand with Dove Extra Hold Hairspray to tame flyaways, especially in front of the ears and at the nape of the neck. (This will keep the overall look super sleek.)
