Mary J Blige, the “Queen of Hip-Hop Soul,” rocked it out with Sam Smith last night at the 57th Grammy Awards, but it was her Rock Star Pompadour that was all the buzz. Celebrity hairstylist, Larry Sims, was the man responsible for this sleek silhouette and we have the scoop on how we did it!
1. Apply Smooth ‘N Shine Silk Style Foaming Wrap Lotion to clean, toweled dry hair and establish a strong side part over the right eyebrow
2. Blow dry entire head and evenly distribute a dime size of Smooth ‘N Shine Silk ‘N Sleek Styling Heat Protect Straighten Polisher from root to tip for added protection and shine
3. Flat iron whole head and use a large barrel curling iron, moving away from the face, to create volume at the crown
4. After volume is achieved, take a large tooth bone comb and sculpt hair with a workable, light hold hairspray
5. For that added Red Carpet shine, mist the Smooth ‘N Shine Instant Repair Spray-On Polisher to finish the look
I love that you can achieve this look without expensive products. These products work for this style, and if you find they don’t work for you, it really isn’t that big of a splurge, which is nice! I hate spending tons of $$$ on stuff then hating it shortly afterwards!
