Actress Idina Menzel is currently causing a buzz about her highly anticipated performance of "Let It Go" at the 2014 Oscars.

Although Idina Menzel's hair isn't the prevailing topic of interest in the media at the moment, for me it's always a subject to be explored.

Now that her voice of snow queen Elsa in Disney's film Frozen is being honored, Idina Menzel's hair will also come under the spotlight when she walks the famous Oscar's Red Carpet in March.

Idina Menzel's Award Winning Career

Idina Menzel (born Mentzel; May 30, 1971) is an American actress, singer, and songwriter who rose to prominence for her performance as Maureen Johnson in the Broadway musical Rent, a role which she reprised for the 2005 feature film adaptation.

In 2004, she won the Tony Award for originating the role of Elphaba in the Broadway blockbuster Wicked.  In 2014, she will be returning to Broadway in the musical If/Then.

Menzel is also known for her portrayal of Shelby Corcoran, the biological mother of Lea Michele's character Rachel Berry, on the Fox musical comedy-drama series Glee, and as the voice of snow  queen Elsa in Disney's film Frozen.

Actress-singer Idina Menzel's hair was highlighted in the past when she was the celebrity spokesperson for the "Dove Hair Care Brush with Greatness Sing4All" in 2010.

Idina Menzel's Hair - Loose Long Waves

The award winning performer wears signature loose long waves which she amps up for The Red Carpet with a more finished Old Hollywood hairstyle.

Steal Her Look

Whether you want long loose waves or you're attending a fancy party, Prom or special event, Idina Menzel's hair works best on tresses which are shoulder length or longer, medium to thick and all textures.  It works ideally on hair which has a loose natural wave or related texture.

Wash hair in lukewarm water with a volume enhancing product. Rinse well.

If appropriate for your hair type, texture and condition, apply a {{asin=B002N5MKM6,text=rinse out conditioner}}, focusing the product on the middle and ends. Avoid applying conditioner to the roots since it can kill any natural volume. Rinse well and finish with cool hair.


Towel blot hair. Apply a mixture of light detangler and {{asin=B00147QL8S,text=volumizing}} mousse.

Concentrate the {{asin=B0037LG7L0,text=volumizer}} on the roots.  Detangle hair.

Create a deep side part. Use a {{asin= B0052BHMOO,text=long finger diffuser}} working around the head in small sections.

{{asin=B00GR0L7TA,text=Blow dry}} until hair is completely dry.

Separate all of the hair into 1-2" sections. Use a 1 1/2 to 2 inch {{asin=B000F5AG5E,text=curling iron}} to create curls all over your head. Pin newly formed curls in place while they completely cool.

Finishing Touches

Once your hair is set, take out the pins.  Give hair a shake.  Brush through newly formed waves with your fingers to separate and slightly tousle.

To create a sleeker look, use a 100% {{asin=B001N444JU,text=boar bristle brush}} to deconstruct your curls.

Finish by applying 1 drop of {{asin=B000NYL3NQ,text=shine serum}} or shine spray to the palms of your hands.  Massage well and then lightly rake through the newly formed waves.
