Jennifer Hudson’s glam squad in action!

Jennifer Hudson’s glam squad in action!

Feminine. Strong. Edgy. Those are the buzzwords which inspired Mizani Celebrity Artist Cesar Ramirez when he styled music star Jennifer Hudson’s coif for her 2014 BET Awards performance. Appropriately, he dubbed her look the “Edgy Crop.” “She’s been embracing this inner tomboy chic,” observes Ramirez. “She’s really loving the fact that she feels sexy with this masculine boy cut. It’s also reminiscent of a cut [actress] Demi Moore did back in the 90s which we both love.” Want to get in on Jennifer’s mane moves? Here you go…


Step 1: Start of with cleansed and conditioned hair.

Step 2: Next, add a dime size amount of Mizani Setting Lotion Protective Styling Lotion to prep and protect the hair from heat styling.

Step 3: In small sections, blow-dry the hair using a round brush to give tresses shape and body.

Step 4: Once mane is completely dry, add a small amount of Mizani Iron Curl Heat Styling and Curling Cream to create flexible hold and style.

Step 5: To finish look, use a light mist of Mizani Thermasmooth ShineExtend Anti-Humidity Spritz to give hair a high shine finish and shield hair from humidity.
