2016 American Music Awards

Red Carpet Report

WHO: Ciara

HAIR BY: Celebrity Hairstylist, Cesar Ramirez

INSPIRATION: “For Ciara's look tonight, I wanted to do something that would complement her beautiful dress. My vision was a long messy ponytail with a 70s inspired fringe.”

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “To start, I applied a thermal straightening system and blew out Ciara's hair smooth with my ghd air® hairdryer. I then center parted her fringe area and sectioned out hair around her face. For the ponytail, I sectioned her hair into two parts—front and back. Using the ghd paddle brush, I brushed back and secured the back section into a ponytail to create a base right at the center back of her head."

"I then attached a faux pony tail which I custom colored to blend with her beautiful blonde color. To hide and blend the faux ponytail, I incorporated the remainder of her hair into the ponytail creating one big sexy messy pony."

“I cut her fringe to really frame her face and give her sexy 70’s- inspired bangs. For an incredibly shiny finish and to nix flyaways, I used the ghd platinum™ styler on the ponytail and on the fringe. Finally, I sprayed anti-humidity hairspray to set the look.”
