Kristin Cavallari’s hair always looks good. Whether Justin Anderson is updating her everyday blonde, or Riawna Capri is creating a gorg style for the Oscars—we always trust Kristin’s trending ’dos. For this year’s 90th Academy Awards, celeb stylist Riawna completed Kristin’s look with a soft, sophisticated bun that was equal parts piecey, romantic and pretty. Here’s how to recreate the style.

Artist: Riawna Capri
Manufacturer: Biolage, @biolage

Products Used



To start, wash the hair with Biolage R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner. Then, on damp hair, apply Biolage R.A.W. Heat Styling Primer for heat protection and blow-dry.


To prep, apply Biolage R.A.W. Frizz Control Styling Spray with Biolage R.A.W. Texturizing Styling Spray for a smooth, but separated and defined style.


Use the Biolage Bodifying Styling Jelly to add more volume and texture at the root, then start pulling sections of hair back. Pin the pieces in place with small clips to set for a Mohawk updo.


Pull the side sections of hair beneath the Mohawk section to the back of the head, make a knot and pin in place.


Then, making a small bun at the nape of the neck, take hair from the middle section knot and wrap it around the bottom bun.


Keep the remaining hair from the Mohawk section soft, and twist any additional strands around the side of the bun. For added softness, leave small pieces of hair out of the bun. 


Finished look.
