Beyonce walked onto the Grammy Awards red carpet dressed in a custom made Proenza Schouler gown with minimal makeup and a soft, wavy hairdo. She was two sides of the coin last night: A queen in lacy black accepting her Grammy Awards for Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song. And an angel when she appeared onstage all in white while performing her rendition of gospel song “Take My Hand Precious Lord.”
Each time she was up there, whether to accept a Grammy or to deliver a performance, her hair was — and you know it — #Flawless. It worked seamlessly from one part of the night to the next, whichever dress she donned for whatever purpose. The key to her look is how effortless it was.
Here is how you can recreate it, according to Pantene Celebrity Stylist Kim Kimble:
Step 1: To achieve soft, edgy waves, start with clean hair.
Step 2: Use a volumizing product all over your hair, try Pantene Pro-V Full & Strong PowerFULL Body Booster Spray Gel — it adds fullness and shine from root to tip and it’s perfect to use just before heat styling. You can also use a small amount of anti-frizz serum or cré¨me before blow-drying hair straight.
Step 3: Separate hair into 2 inch sections and use a 1.5 inch tourmaline flat iron to begin creating the loose waves. Place the flat iron a few inches below the root and twist the flat iron a turn and a half before gliding the iron down the hair shaft. This adds a curl throughout the entire length of hair, while also smoothing it out and making it look effortless.
Step 4: Next, run fingers through hair to loosen up the curl and create an edgy wave. Take the flat iron and quickly run it over each section of hair again to flatten it a bit—you don’t want to make it look too flat or straight or else the wave will fall out.
Step 5: Take a pea size amount of shine serum and run fingers through hair again to enhance shine and lock out frizz. I love using the Pantene Pro-V Smooth & Sleek Smooth Serum with Argan Oil because of its lightweight texture and humidity control for silky, soft hair.
Step 6: Finish the style off with a medium-hold hairspray, like the Pantene Pro-V Stylers Shaping Hairspray to keep the style in place while also allowing the waves to move.
