26 Nov 2013 AMAs, Best Makeup Hairstyle Trends: Katy Perry’s Polka Dot Nails, Rihanna’s “Doobie Wrap”, Christina Aguilera Milkbraid, Taylor Swift’s Blonde Shag
Now that we’ve had time to decompress from the other night’s 2013 American Music Awards, we’ve picked out our favorite looks from the night. We loved Taylor Swift’s more dirty blonde and tousled strands, while our friend, hairstylist Ted Gibson couldn’t get enough of Rihanna’s “doobie wrap”.
Pop princess Katy Perry kept her nails just as whimsical as her dress with matching black and white polka dot nail art. Learn how to create the same look at home using Sally Hansen nail color. Read on to see which other musicians caught our eye.
Less twerkin’ and more workin’ it! Miley looked hip and subdued with loads of mascara, a nude lip and her half-buzzed short cut.
We want to do what we want with that long hair! Lady Gaga must be really excited about her new Spring 2014 Versace campaign, because she looked EXACTLY like Donatella Versace in her ad.
She left her ARTPOP makeup at home this time, and chose more neutral colors to make her green eyes pop.
Taylor looks AMAZING with dirty blonde hair! Her tousled California girl locks were cut in layers, giving off almost a shaggy style. Nude lips and smoky eyes really complimented her metallic dress.
She’s going to be HUGE in 2014! Not just because of her Mariah Carey-like voice, but that GORGEOUS HAIR of hers! Half-up/half-down with a slight wave is age-appropriate, and so is her makeup: softly lined eyes and a sweet medium pink shade on lips. Perfection!
“I absolutely LOVED Rihanna’s hair! The hairstyle she wore is called a ‘doobie wrap’ or “wrap” in African-American and Latino communities. This hairstyle is worn while drying hair under the dryer or is styled this way after drying to preserve a blow-out.
Women usually would not wear their hair this way as a hairstyle, as it’s usually only seen at home or in the beauty salon, but Rihanna is all about breaking the rules! She took something that most women would never wear outside of their home and made it fashionable and chic!
It’s as if she said, ‘I’m Rihanna, I’m getting the ICON award, and I can do whatever I want!’ Taylor Swift won a lot of awards last night, but we’re not talking about her the next day. We’re talking about Rihanna, and that’s what makes her an icon.” – Ted Gibson
Katy Perry walked the red carpet in a strapless, black tulle and white sequin polka dot Oscar de la Renta gown. To accent her dress, Kyees created white polka dot nails using Sally Hansen nail color exclusively.
To create Katy’s nail look, Kimmie used two coats of Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Color in Slick Black as a base color and Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in White On to create the dots. For a flawless finish, Kimmie used Sally Hansen Triple Shine Top Coat to seal the nail art and enhance shine.
