Selena Gomez wowed everyone last night at the 2011 American Music Awards, decked out in a glamorous pale blush Armani Couture gown and gorgeous hair. TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist John D., who styled Serena for the event, created a classic old Hollywood, Veronica Lake look to compliment her dress. John shares with Talking Makeup & Marta Walsh how to recreate this red-carpet style and achieve chair-worthy hair.
How To Get Selena Gomez’ Hairstyle At The 2011 American Music Awards
Step 1: Prep towel-dried hair with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Mousse, combing the product through for even distribution
Step 2: Blow-dry hair nice and smooth and create a deep side part for added drama
Step 3: Take sections framing the face on both sides (from the back of the part, just behind the ear), and curl 1 inch sections using a 1 inch barrel-curling iron, then spraying with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Curl Activator Spray to add additional hold and aid in protecting hair from excess heat
Step 4: Curl bangs away from the face and curl the side sections in a horizontal direction, continuing this process on the remaining sections. *Stylist Secret: make sure the sections are even and not too big. This will ensure a consistent curl/wave pattern
Step 5: After the sets are cooled, spray a boar bristle brush with TRESemmé Climate Control Finishing Spray and brush out the curls until you achieve a desired wave pattern. Make sure the wave hangs just over the eye and finish with more hairspray to keep the look in place!
