CIARA HAIR FROM THE MTV VMAS - HOW TO RECREATE THE LOOK


Ciara stunned on the MTV VMAs red carpet in Givenchy .  She paired it with loose waves with face framing highlights to offset the luminous gown.  


 INSPIRATION BEHIND THE LOOK

Perfect hair and the perfect Givenchy Dress. "I knew I had to create something effortless and reflective. Ciara's blonde ombre has progressively has moved into something more hand painted now. Most recent we went from blonde to brunette and the VMA's was the perfect time to paint in several different warm tones that melt together creating a custom hand painted effect much newer than ombre" Chase Kusero celebrity hairstylist 

Here's how Chase tells us how to achieve Ciara's look : 
1. The key to effortlessly sexy long hair is long layers. Ciaras layers are cut high on the head and left long around her face, these layers that border the face are enhanced with boldly painted sections of the tone best fit for the skin. 
2. Hand painted hair is the new ombre.. still keeping the roots natural sections are picked out and painted in different phases with several tones of Carmel blondes and autumn ambers to create a more custom melted effect. Color created using l'oreal professional and Redken 5th ave.

Splurge : If you don't want to commit to coloring your own hair, you can always invest in a wig that comes already colored ( this will run a couple of hundred dollars - for Virgin Hair processed hair)  , or you can take this photo to a professional colorist and have him/her customize your unit to mimic Ciara's look. 
Steal :  Your second option is to go for an even more cost effective option which is to get a Hairdo by HairUWear Wavy Extensions that comes in  20 or 23 inches of hair, depending on desired length. ($99 each: HairExtensions.com).  These are an easy "instant" length option.
