Ciara, styled by Cesar Ramirez

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

Tips and Techniques

To start, I applied Mizani's Thermasmooth System and blew out Ciara's hair smooth with my ghd Air Hairdryer. I then centre 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 centre back of her head. I then attached a Faux Cesar-Do Ponytail which I custom coloured to blend with her beautiful blonde colour. 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 70s inspired bangs. For an incredibly shiny finish and to fix flyaways, I used the ghd Platinum Styler on the ponytail and on the fringe. Finally, I sprayed Mizani HRM Anti-Humidity Hairspray to set the look.

Gigi Hadid, styled by Bryce Scarlett

For her red carpet look, Gigi was wearing a gorgeous white lace gown that had a sexy 70s vibe, and we wanted her hair to reflect that too. We took inspiration from Lauren Hutton and went for brushed back curls that would look glamorous, but still effortless.

Tips and Techniques

To get a lot of volume, I used the ghd Air Hairdryer and the ghd Natural Bristle Radial Brush (size 4), blowing out her hair up and away from her face. Once it was dry, I sprayed some thickening spray and backcombed it through. Since we wanted big voluminous curls, I used the ghd Curve Soft Curl Tong to curl her hair. The one and a quarter inch barrel creates nice, bouncy curls, which was exactly what we were going for.

Once her hair was curled, I brushed her hair back to soften the look, giving it a more relaxed vibe. I teased the top for a little extra volume and used the ghd Platinum Styler to touch it up and get rid of any flyaways. Then, I set it all with hairspray and we were out the door for her big red carpet reveal.
