Fergie rocked a bohemian style and dress at the 2008 Teen Choice Awards with a bohemian hair style to go with. Fergie’s bohemian hair style was created by Patricia Morales, Redken session stylist and hair stylist to Fergie.
It was all about having fun, clowning around, and winning some surf boards! The Teen Choice Awards, televised on August 4, was a fun-filled event with a lot of laughs and not to mention screaming fans. But like any award show, a big focus of the night was the styles seen on the red carpet. Lots of color, casual chic looks and a bevy of hairstyles were donned for the show. Always a crowd-pleaser, Fergie, graced the red-carpet with a bohemian-inspired look fitting for the award show.
“Since her dress was very bohemian, we wanted her hair to be a little edgier but still complement her look” says, Patricia Morales, Redken session stylist and hair stylist to Fergie. “I showed her a series of braids I have been working on and she chose the fish tail braids. I think she rocked it!”
This is how to create Fergie’s bohemian hair style at the 2008 Teen Choice Awards: Morales applied Redken full Frame 07 Protective Volumizing Mousse (SRP$15.95) and Redken Extreme Anti-Snap (SRP$14.95), to the hair when damp. This provided lots of body and volume but also smoothness and shine, which allowed an easier time to create the fish tail.
Morales then rough-dried the hair to keep Fergie’s natural texture. She started the braid by creating a low ponytail at the nape of the neck with a center part, then proceeded to create her fish tail securing with elastic then wrapping Fergie’s own hair around it. Morales pulled pieces in the front to shape Fergie’s face and kept the braid to the side and over her shoulder. Morales finished off with Redken workforce 09 flexible volumizing spray (SRP $14.95), for hold and added shine
With her flaming fuchsia and red halter style long dress, colorful bracelets, and an edgy belt, Fergie rocked the red carpet. She owned her hippie-inspired style and the fish tail braid complemented her overall look. Fergie looked fun, flirty, and youthful — a perfect style for the highly energized and fun-filled show.
