Steal the Look: Katy Perry at the VMAs
Katy Perry has been my chief girl crush for years, so it’s not a surprise that her look at the MTV Video Music Awards last night were among my favorites. She usually is!
Her hair stylist, Clyde Haygood, created a glamorous yet, classic Katy style for the VMA winner.
Here’s how to steal the look:
To start, Clyde sprayed Katy’s hair with Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger HydroMist Blow-Out Spray before blow drying to give hair volume and some support.
· He then worked with 2” sections and sprayed Paul Mitchell Hot Off The Press thermal protectant spray to help protect hair from heat styling as well as continue to build the support system for the style to help the waves last through the night, before curling each section.
· To work with Katy’s bangs and her long hair, Clyde aimed to have the waves start in the middle (near her cheekbones) and cascade down, to do that, he placed the barrel of the Paul Mitchell Neuro Unclipped Styling Rod against hair, wrapped it around, then twisted the hair, wrapped it around the barrel, twisted, and wrapped it, for the length of the hair—the twisting and wrapping technique helps keep the waves full and glamorous vs. piecey or beach-like.
· Clyde then sprayed hair with Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shine Spray to give her hair and bangs that glossy shine and completed the look with Paul Mitchell Stay Strong Express Dry Strong Hold Hair Spray to keep the waves looking gorgeous and voluminous all night.
Love it!! What were some of your favorite VMA looks last night?
