Addison Rae

Hair by celebrity hairstylist, Mara Roszak

The hair look was inspired by modern yet classic Old Hollywood. – Mara Roszak

Get the look
  1. Start by blow-drying the hair using the ghd helios professional hairdryer and a medium round brush to create a nice shiny base as the foundation for the look.
  2. Next, part the hair in the middle and wave the hair towards the face on both sides using the ghd curve soft curl tong.
  3. Use the ghd platinum+ styler to smooth the roots, spray a fine mist all over for shine, and tuck the left side of the hair behind the ear.
  4. For the right side of the hair, work to maintain the “S” formation to give the hair a really classic shape and maintain softness.

Hair by celebrity hairstylist, Shelby Swain

Lizzo wanted to do something sleek to fit with the dress, as the dress was such a big statement, so we went with a snatched pony. It was a Naomi Campbell moment. – Shelby Swain

Get the look
  1. Start by washing the hair with an amplified textures shampoo and conditioner. After hair is washed, blow-dry using the ghd helios professional hairdryer to create a sleek and glossy finish.
  2. Next, sculpt hair into a ponytail. Once secured, straighten the hair using the ghd platinum+ styler.
  3. To finish the look, use the ghd curve soft curl tong to create bouncy waves for a luxe ponytail.
