Anne Hathaway at the National Board of Review Gala

Wella Stylist Sascha Breuer created an edgy, rocker chic pixie for Anne Hathaway at the National Board of Review Gala in New York City earlier this week. I had wondered how she would grow her hair out after she cut it for Les Misérables. I think she looks darling - even though I think long hair is more glamorous and eye-catching on her.

Here is how her pixie look was created was created by Sascha Breuer for Wella Professionals.

Here are Sascha’s tips on how to recreate this look.
  • Blow dry hair while shaping with it to one side with fingers to ensure the natural texture stays intact.
  • Spritz the hair evenly with Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray for added “gut.” Don't ask me what gut is.
  • Once the hair is completely dry, use a ceramic straightener on individual sections to enhance the hair and bring out the straighter, rock-chic feel of the look.
  • Mist some Wella Professionals Stay Firm Finishing Spray directly on your fingers and define single strands without weighing your hair down. “This way, the spray stays on really light and your will let your hair look and feel natural, even though it has a strong hold level,” says Sascha. 
The products used were Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray and Wella Professionals Stay Firm Finishing Spray.

Love Hathaway's look in a Saint Laurent tux, Givenchy custom vegan shoes, and a Jill Milan clutch. Now I must see the movie. Hathaway was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar. I expect to cry through a good bit of it, so I'll go alone and sob.

Definitely go see Les Miz. I must admit that I had some serious doubts when the cast was first announced, but it all seems to come together and work really well. The singing in real time, as opposed to the usual lip synching, gives the songs an emotional punch that is on par with the best of the best theatrical performances. I guarantee you, you won't be the only one leaving the movie in tears.

I will, Eileen. There is a theatre that shows at 9:30 am, and I figure I can avoid the crowds at that hour.

I just had to comment! I agree with Eileen, you need to see it. I was actually embarrassed to walk out of the theater because I was crying so hard!

Joni, don't feel bad, you aren't alone in that! As we walked out of the theater (always the last to do so because we stay and watch the credits), there was a line of people waiting to get in and they all looked at me with pitying eyes at my red,swollen eyes!! I loved it. Anne was great!
And what an adorable cut on her!

I know, Joni. I sat in the theatre crying, so I guess I can do the same for the movie.

Hi MamaVal,

Glad to hear from everyone that I won't be alone with red, swollen eyes.
