The Look: An over-the-top textured ponytail accessorized with a rotation of handmade accessories.
Hairstylist: Gregory Russell

Get the Look:
1. Apply a generous amount of TIGI Bed Head Hard Head Gel to wet hair and tightly comb hair towards the crown to create a ponytail. Secure the ponytail in place with a bungee band and use a diffuser to dry the gel base.

2. Next, apply TIGI Bed Head Joyride Texturizing Powder Balm to the ponytail for second-day texture in an instant and blow out using a flat brush.

3. Then, apply a pearl-sized amount of TIGI Bed Head Hard to Get Texturizing Paste to 2-3" sections of the hair ponytail band to ends.

4. Twist each section around itself then use a comb to tease the twist. Repeat this technique through the ends for a “dreadlock” look. Add TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Matte down the twist for a matte finish.

5. Finish with TIGI Bed Head Hard Head Hairspray.

Rita Ora

Rita

The Look: Iconic platinum, inspired by Rita Ora's paneled dress.
Hairstylist: Chris Appleton

Get the Look:
1. Says Appleton, "Since Rita’s hair has a great natural curly hair texture, I prepped the hair with Biolage Cleansing Conditioner Anti Frizz Leave in Treatment.

2. "Then, I blow-dried the hair, using a combination of Style Link Smooth Setter Smoothing Cream and Style Link Turbo Dryer. We blow-dried her hair with a flat brush to give it a smooth, sleek look.

3. "Next, I divided her hair into clean sections with Style Link Shape Switcher, tying off each section.

4." I created six ponytails that are interconnected, and applied Style Link Heat Buffer, before flat ironing out her look.

5. "We finished it off with some spritzes of Style Link Style Fixer to fix it off to ensure that the look stayed put all night. I stayed away from using anything volumizing, or anything with too much of a dry texture, as I wanted to keep the look very smooth and sleek!"

Tori Kelly

Tori

The Look: Healthy, bouncy curls
Hairstylist: Nikki Providence

Get the Look:
1. Says Providence, "Tori was blessed with lots of beautiful naturally curly hair - when you have curly hair, the most important thing is to keep it healthy and use products that support the natural texture. Biolage Cleansing Conditioner is great to prep hair like Tori’s because it cleans the hair without stripping its natural oils.

2. "When her hair was wet, I applied Style Link Volume Builder at the roots.

3. "Next, I spread a generous amount of Style Link Smooth Setter with a few drops of Style Link Volume Booster at the roots throughout mid lengths making sure to distribute it evenly through the ends.

4. "Part the hair deeply on one side. Take 2-inch sections of hair and twist them into ropes. Diffuse gently without disturbing the twists, until the hair is completely dry.

5. "Using your hands, shake the hair out at the roots to boost volume and separate the curls slightly. If any areas need a boost, now is the time to use a medium sized curling iron to touch up waves - make sure to keep the natural movement in the hair, don't make every section uniform!

6. "At the roots, use Style Link Height Riser, and finish with Style Link Volume Fixer to keep the volume through red carpet and performance!"
