Rihanna: 2017 Grammy Awards
Red Carpet Report
HAIR BY: Celebrity Hairstylist, Yusef Williams
INSPIRATION: “This was one of the unusual moments when Rihanna wasn't performing at an award show so we wanted to be a little laid back with her look. We wanted it to be super playful, carefree and youthful. Once she picked her dress, we decided to go for long, flowing, big waves--voluminous, just like her ball gown."
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: "To start, we decided to color her hair that day, just a bit, to play off the orange of the ball gown. Then, I washed her hair with shampoo and applied a hydrating mask to make sure her hair was really moisturized before styling.
Next, I applied a volume mousse and blow dried her hair with the ghd air® hairdryer with the ghd air® diffuser attachment to maintain Rihanna's natural texture. Once her hair was dry, I used the ghd curve® classic wave wand to enhance and perfect her waves. Because of the tri-zone® technology in this wand, we don't have to worry about the heat affecting her newly colored hair. Then, I took my ghd gold professional 1" styler and flat ironed her roots to the top of her ear to nix flyaways and to create a bit of contrast. To complete the look, I added a texturizing foam for separation and texture, followed by hairspray for hold."
