Kristen Wiig - HairSteve Granitz/WireImage

Academy Award nominee Kristen Wiig updated her hairstyle! The Bridesmaids star added sunny, blond highlights, thanks to Amy Huson at Marie Robinson Salon in New York City. “When Kristen walked into the room and I saw her gorgeous new hair color I was so inspired,” said hairstylist Mark Townsend, who created her waves for Oscar night. Townsend told InStyle.com that he gave Wiig an “edgy wave” by wrapping sections of hair around a 1-1/2 inch curling iron. He raked two pumps of Dove Style + Care Frizz Free Shine Cream Serum through the waves to break them up and add shine and hold. As to why he opted for such a low-key look on such a high-wattage night? “Kristen iss gorgeous and sexy. We didn’t want her to look overly done. We wanted her true personality to stand out,” he said. Mission accomplished!
