Celeb stylist David Babaii and makeup artist Scott Barnes created some serious curls and smoky drama all over Christina Aguilera last night for NBC’s The Voice. Christina’s tribute to Michael and Janet Jackson inspired her glam squad to use the theme “Smoke n’ Mirrors” as the vision. I am loving this look, so I got the scoop on how they styled her up yesterday!
To get her look, David used products he prefers for volume, movement and hold – Big Sexy Hair!
He started with Big Sexy Hair Big Altitude Bodifying Blow Dry Mousse as the foundation to achieve volume and hold. After applying, he rough dried her hair with heat using his hands to lift and create the groundwork for texture.
He then carefully sectioned the hair into 4 sections top, crown, sides and nape so not to disturb the texture he achieved during drying. Starting at the nape he took very small sections and curled each strand with small barreled curling irons. He used ¼” and ½” sized irons alternating the tool choice and also the direction the curls went, then holding for 10 seconds. David carefully removed each curl from the curling iron repeating this until her entire head was full of Big Sexy curls.
To finish, David used the texturizing and defining crème Big Sexy Hair Big Boost for added volume, applying it underneath sections of her hair, lifting each section as he worked the product in. Next, with some left over product on his hands, he gently defined each curl and placed them exactly where he wanted them to be.
