TRESSES & DRESSES:
RED CARPET REPORT: 2017 MTV VMAs
WHO: Miley Cyrus
HAIR BY: Celebrity Hair Stylist Andy LeCompte
INSPIRATION: “Miley wanted vintage inspired hairstyles all night to match her ‘Younger Now’ performance. She charmed the crowd with a 50’s high ponytail with soft blonde curls and later dazzled when we transformed her pony into a glamourous Double French twist updo.”
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “First I smoothed Miley’s hair by blowing it out with ghd air™ hairdryer, ghd oval dressing brush and ghd ceramic radial brush. I then set the hair by curling 1 inch sections using the ghd curve ® soft curl iron.
I smoothed a light hair oil on strands and pulled the side & back sections of hair with the ghd oval dressing brushup into a high ponytail. Using the ghd detangling comb, I back-combed sections of pompadour, then smoothed & pinned into place at the crown of the head. Next, I tamed loose flyways with a dab of styling gel and then added hairspray to complete the look.
To take the ponytail up into a Double French Twist, I left the pompadour intact and took the ponytail out while brushing through Miley’s hair with the ghd narrow dressing brush I then separated hair into two sections with a middle part down the back and added volumizing spray for that extra oomph.
Then I took the left section of her hair and twisted strands inwards from the ends towards the middle and pinned hair in place. I repeated the same motion on the right section of her hair and sprayed with hairspray to hold the style in place."
