Christina Aguilera’s hair isn’t typically on our list of celebrity hairstyles to copy, but her blunt look from the 2012 American Music Awards was quite the pleasant surprise. The Lotus singer stepped onto the AMA red carpet clad in a purple Pamella Roland gown and short blond style.
It seems like everyone has an opinion over Aguilera’s awards show look, though we’re loving it — it’s a nice break from the two-sizes-too-small dresses she’s been wearing over the past couple of years. The hair is quite the nice addition, though it is quite the departure from the long (and multicolored) extensions she’s been wearing as of late, but hairstylist David Babaii said she was all about it.
“Christina can pull off any look. She allows me to play with different styles and master the art of illusion,” Babaii said Monday.
To create the look at home, he advises us to:
- Invest in a great cut.
- Prep the hair with IT&LY Hairfashion‘s line of cruelty-free Purity Design products.
- Use a vegan round hairbrush and ionic blow dryer to get a sleek finish.
- Finish with IT&LY’s Pure Definition Spray for touchable hold and Pure Water Drops serum for shine.
Or, invest in a Cleopatra-style wig if you’re not quite ready to take the plunge on your own.
