Katherine Heigl at the “One for the Money” Movie Premiere

The Look: “Coiffed with a Little Bit of Chaos”

Inspiration: Essence of Grace Kelly. “I imagined Grace coming off her yacht in Monaco” – David Babaii

Hair Stylist: David Babaii (Tracey Mattingly Agency)

David Babaii’s Red Carpet Style How-to:

“To get Katherine’s look, I start by applying Miracle Oil Elixir by David Babaii throughout the hair and then rough dry with the T3 Featherweight Luxe Dryer. Rough drying allows the hair to maintain volume. We don’t want to smooth out hair, we want it to have a fluffy feeling. While blow drying, put head back and run fingers through the hair backwards, so there is no part. Once you finish drying the hair, use a clampless curling iron, I use my new favorite styling wand, the T3 SinglePass Whirl, and randomly start wrapping sections of hair. Imagine it like a cascade of an ocean wave going from the front of her face, to the back of her head. The waves create soft texture, keep adding them randomly throughout—hair should be dangling all over. At this point, use bobby pins (don’t be afraid to let them show!) to pin back hair into a somewhat ‘chaotic’ bun. Pull the hair back in whatever direction your hair goes, form it to your head shape.”

“When you walk out, you look ‘Grace Kellyesque’, but without trying. This look is not about the hair wearing the woman; it’s about the woman wearing the hair.”


“Biggest trick is to wash hair the night before. Give the hair a little nap, that way when it’s time to style, it’s woken up softly.”
“My tool is my end product. When I use my T3 I don’t need to shellac the hair, because it memorizes the hair and the curls. I don’t need hair spray.”
“Day to night with just ten bobby pins in your purse. Take your free flowing hair and throw in bobby pins.”
