Secrets from the Set: How to Steal Nicole Kidman’s Hair from Grace of Monaco


May 16, 2014 @ 1:25 pm

Replicating the hair of an icon is no easy task, especially when said icon is former Princess of Monaco and Oscar-winning actress Grace Kelly. Much of the upcoming film Grace of Monaco (with Nicole Kidman as Kelly) depicts the star’s life as a newly-appointed royal in the 1960s and so hairstylist Agathe Dupuis went about recreating several of Kelly’s glamorous looks with the help of her styling essentials: Leonor Greyl hair products.

In addition to princess-worthy looks, Dupuis kept men’s hair in place for party scenes, such as the Red Cross Ball, with the brand’s Gel a l’Hibiscus ($ 35; leonorgreyl-usa.com), and often relies on Tonique Hydratant ($ 43) and Algues et Fleurs ($ 35), which she claims “are very practical while filming, and give the actors’ hair good texture.” The stylist’s go-to, however, was the Éclat Naturel ($ 46), a nourishing styling cream “which I use for everything from scalp massages to the treatment of the ends of the hair. I can leave it all day long on the hair of the actors, it is perfect!”
