It’s the Australian Film and Television sphere’s night of nights, and this year ELEVEN AUSTRALIA were on hand to ensure the stars shone even brighter.

Returning as Official Hair Partners for the 2018 AACTA’s, a hand-picked team of stylists, led by Co-Creative Director Joey Scandizzo, tended to the tresses of an assortment of A-listers, award presenters and name guests. “Working with the Australian Film Institute and AACTA for the sixth time is a massive accolade and something we’re extremely proud of,” shared Joey. “It’s an opportunity to work with an extremely talented group of Australia’s top talent and make them look amazing on their night of nights.”

Here are three of this year’s hero looks as styled by Joey Scandizzo and ELEVEN Australia.


Aussie actress Melina Vidler made a serious case for the top-knot-and-fringe combo with this slicked-back high bun and structured, sequin gown.

Step One: Apply 2-3 pumps of Miracle Hair Treatment to towel-dried hair, for heat protection and to create a smooth, healthy foundation.

Step Two: Mist Sea Salt Texture Spray through from root to tip for added guts before drying through with a blowdryer.

Step Three: Create a deep side part and section front fringe portion before clipping it to the side. Next, divide the remaining hair into two horizontal sections and clip the bottom section.

Step Four: Pump I Want Body Volume Foam through roots while combing hair, gathering it into a high ponytail on the top of the head and securing with an elastic.

Step Five: Apply I Want Body Volume Foam to the bottom sections and comb towards the top of the head. Add bottom section to the first ponytail and secure with an elastic. Tip: Creating two ponytails keeps the look tight and prevents the look from dropping underneath.

Step Six: Split the newly formed ponytail into two and wrap each portion around each other to create a topknot and secure with bobby pins. Lock in the style with a generous spritz of Give Me Hold Strong Hairspray.

Step Seven: Lightly wrap front fringe section around a medium sized curling tong to create a soft bend and finish off with a few more spritzes of Give Me Hold Flexible Hairspray for soft hold with a touch of movement.


Star of the stage Marta Dusseldorp more than looked the part for this year’s AACTA’s, sporting smooth, s-bend waves that perfectly complimented her pared back outfit.

Step One: Towel dry hair and apply 2-3 pumps of Miracle Hair Treatment to protect the hair from heat and create a smooth, shiny foundation to your style.

Step Two: Dry through hair with a blow dryer and part into a deep side part before separating into sections.

Step Three: Wrap medium sized sections (approximately 4cm width) around a medium barrelled curling tong. Ensure all sections are curled in the same direction (away from face) for a uniform finish. Start curling below eye level to keep crown section sleek.

Step Four: Once hair is cooled, brush through curls to soften shape and finish by spraying with Give Me Hold Flexible Hairspray.

Tip: For an extra hit of gloss, work a small amount of Smooth & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum into palms and smooth over the finished look to lock in shine and tame flyaways.


AACTA winning actress Kat Stewart well and truely turned heads with her elegant ensemble, opting to keep her waves, soft, tousled and oh so textured.

Step One: Apply 2-3 pumps of Miracle Hair Treatment through towel-dried hair.

Step Two: Mist Sea Salt Texture Spray from root to tip to create a foundation of texture and hold before drying through with a blow dryer.

Step Three: Part the hair into a deep side part and separate into sections.

Step Four: Wrap large sections of hair (approximately 5cm wide) around a medium barrelled curling tong. Begin your curls at eye level and alternate the direction of your curls for a more relaxed finish spraying each section with Give Me Hold Flexible Hairspray once curled.

Step Five: Once complete, flip hair upside and shake the curls out loosely whilst spraying with Give Me Hold Flexible Hairspray. This will allow for a workable hold that will keep your hair in place.

Step Six: For a final boost of texture, spray through I Want Body Texture Spray.
