While this isn’t the first time Lorde’s ditched her gorgeous natural curls for the stage, we couldn’t help but notice how particularly sleek and shiny her hair looked last night at the Billboard Music Awards. Paired with an all-black outfit and her signature dark lips, the straight style felt fresh but still very much Lorde.
For curly girls who want to achieve the same look, Wella Professionals celebrity hair stylist Andy Lecompte first washed and conditioned her hair with Wella Professionals Enrich Shampoo and Conditioner, which hydrates and smoothes out dry or damaged hair. After towel-drying, he then applied a coupled pumps of Oil Reflections to add shine and body to the look. Then, using a large flat brush, he blow-dried and ran the Harry Josh Pro Tools Ceramic Styling Iron throughout her hair to create the pin-straight style. He completed the hairdo by applying two pumps of Pearl Styler Styling Gel from the roots to the crown to get that wet-surfer-hair-inspired vibe.
Sure, straightening super long and thick hair like Lorde’s is too high-maintenance for an every day look, but for special occasions she proves it’s a great way to seriously transform your style.
