Last night, the 95th annual Academy Awards took place in Los Angeles. While the red carpet looks are always jaw-dropping (after all, this is the final and most formal ceremony of award season), the after-party looks are just as good… if not better. That's why, each year, we wait with bated breath to see celebrities arrive at the Vanity Fair after-party. We can't wait to see which beauty trends they embrace and, just as importantly, which ones they don't. 

One of the standouts this year was Hailey Bieber. Her hair was done by celebrity hairstylist Bryce Scarlett, whose clients include Margot Robbie and Brie Larson. Her freshly cut chin-grazing bob was styled in soft waves, with one side tucked elegantly behind her ear. We love the style, but can we talk about the shine? Bieber's hair had a glossy luster that made us desperate for details. Luckily, we got them. Keep scrolling to see the three products Scarlett used to create Bieber's look, including an underrated $12 shine spray.

Before we dive into the product details, here's another look at Bieber's lustrous hair. Her strands have a shiny, light-reflective quality from roots to ends. This style was the perfect complement to her black floor-length Saint Laurent gown. 

While Bieber's Saint Laurent gown isn't something we'd classify as affordable, her styling products are. Scarlett used only three products to style her hair. They're all from John Frieda, and they're all $12 and under. You know a budget-friendly product is good when it's used at such a prestigious event like this. 

Scarlett started with clean, wet hair. He applied this Vibrant Shine 3-in-1 Shine Spray throughout her hair. Not only does it add a lustrous, Oscars-worthy shine, but it also offers detangling benefits and heat protection up to 450°. It's vegan and cruelty-free and uses argan oil as its star ingredient.

Once the shine spray was spritzed throughout Bieber's hair, he used a hair dryer to give her a blowout. He used a boar-bristle brush, created a middle part, and was careful not to give her too much volume. After all, this look was all about being shiny and sleek. 

After the blowout, he softly wrapped her hair around a one-inch curling iron for subtle waves. Then, he used a flat iron to soften some pieces and create different textures. Next, he applied a dime-sized amount of this cream throughout her hair to smooth flyaways and add more shine. 

As the finishing touch, Scarlett spritzed this hair spray throughout her hair so the style would hold all night. It's a firm-hold formula that provides humidity resistance and even more shine. With just three drugstore styling products, plus a couple of heat tools, Scarlett created a sleek, glossy look. It's proof that red carpet hair isn't synonymous with expensive styling products.
