Red Carpet Report
HAIR BY: Celebrity Hairstylist, Yusef
INSPIRATION: “I wanted to show who Rihanna is and has been throughout her career. Her individuality is what made her into the icon she is today, so we wanted to highlight that with the hair. She is authentic and each look is some variation of a signature look that she’s had during her career.”
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “I re-wet and blew the hair dry again using the ghd air® hairdryer, brushing it back from her face with the ghd natural bristle radial brush. Once it was dry, I applied a leave-in Conditioner to smooth the edges and add softness.
“Then, I used the ghd platinum™ styler to lock in shine and make it even straighter and smoother.
"After that, I tamed flyaways and tucked the hair behind the ears with molding cream. To finish the look and hold it in place, I used bobby pins before adding firm finish hair spray to make the finished look a bit more glossy and give it extra hold.”
