There was so much hair to check out at this year’s 54th Annual Grammy Awards. From classic soft styles, to edgy colors and textures, these artists really know how draw up some attention from head to toe.
Katy Perry was feeling a “little blue” at this year’s Grammys, debuting her new single self with her rooty turquoise/blue hair. She’s definitely showing us her inner Marge Simpson on the carpet, which totally turned heads. This upswept look is a fantastic look for those lacking length such as Katy. A simple twist in back and a mile high bouffant gives Katy the illusion of having longer locks.
Her futuristic performance look on the other hand was reminiscent of a young Darryl Hannah from Blade Runner. To get this look, heat up that crimping iron (check out Babyliss crimping iron);spray a thermal protection spray on dry hair; take small sections of hair and crimp from roots to ends. Let it cool; rub a shine serum between your palms and rake your fingers through your hair to expand the shape and achieve that soft Katy Perry finish.
OMG! Really, I mean c’mon. What a bronze goddess this girl is. She looks amazing with her (yes another rooty look) golden locks! To achieve this haircolor ask your stylist to darken up your base and balayage (hand painted highlights meaning “to sweep”) your hair. As for her luscious curls, check a curling wand. Curling wands usually taper toward one end and does not come with a clamp allowing you to wind your hair with ease. Remember! Protect that hair with a thermal spray, I dig Sexy Hair’s Smooth and Protect which I use before I flat iron or curl that head of hair!
Of course the lady of the night Adele, hits it big not just with her multiple Grammys but her big voluptuous hair. This hairstyle is all about prepping the hair before its blow dried with the proper volumizing products. Try out Sexy Hair’s Root Pump Plus which is a heat activated humidity resistant root lifting foam. After the hair is dried, with a medium barrel curling iron, feed sections of hair through the iron away from the face; pin up sections into place and spray with a medium hairspray. Once it’s cooled brush out your hair from ends to mid ends and spray into place.
