Ciara’s Sleek VMA Vibe

ciaras sleek vma vibe

R&B singer Ciara looked beautiful at the MTV Video Music Awards last night–from her stunning black dress to her sleek bob. Celebrity Stylist and Mizani Artist Cesar Ramirez styled the star’s hair for the red carpet, aiming for a stunning, bold look inspired by some of his favorite ’90s moment. To complement Ciara’s detailed dress without competing, he created a strong, blunt bob. After creating a dark-chocolate base color with thin slices of dark-toffee highlights, he set out styling the final look…

♦ Ciara’s hair was prepped with Mizani Thermasmooth System to achieve a long-lasting, frizz-free, smooth style.

♦ Cesar added Mizani Thermasmooth Smooth Guard Serum, established the middle part and began to blow-dry the bob section by section.

♦ Using a Mason-Pearson brush and the blow-dryer nozzle, hair was dried downward, section by section, into a sleek finish.

♦ Once Ciara’s hair was completely dried, Cesar used a flat iron and a light mist of Mizani Thermasmooth Shine Extend Anti-Humidity Spritz to fully lock out frizz.

♦ The flawless bob was finished with Mizani HRM Humidity Resistant Mist.
