Two L.A. students go to Oscars thanks to Alicia Keys’ hairstylist, donated dresses

When girls in their junior year of high school scour the mall for the perfect dress in the spring, it’s time for prom. But not for 17-year-old Ismerai Calcaneo. She’s shopping for the Oscars. It’s a quest for a dress that this Roosevelt High student could have never imagined. And it’s taken her teacher’s Instagram plea and a corps of donors to prepare Ismerai and sixth-grader Porché Brinker for their red carpet walk on Sunday at the Dolby Theatre.

And above that pert black bow tie, White modeled his usual cherubic looks, skin youthfully aglow and tendrils coiled at his forehead. That visage and hair are the purview of KC Fee, the celebrity groomer who reconnected with White for The Bear’s season one premiere and has accompanied his wild ride ever since. Arguably there are similarities between the high-stress environment of a restaurant kitchen and the awards-season gauntlet. “This is something I’ve witnessed with all my clients: It’s an experience nobody knows unless they have to go through it,” Fee says. “There is a lot of wear and tear, and there’s a lot being asked of them.

As a result, a hairstylist decided to take to TikTok to explain her theory behind what keeps the royal’s locks in place. “Watch her hair. The wind blows, her hair doesn’t move at all,” a TikToker by the username @Bekah_and_co commented as footage rolled of Kate visiting a father’s group in November 2023. “She uses tons of hairspray to keep her hair in place, to keep her bangs in place,” Bekah said. “So if you want bangs, and you live in a windy city or humid city, you have to use product …
