For the intel on the stunning “Rock Star Pompadour” hairstyle worn by Mary J. Blige at last night’s Grammy Awards, Sophisticate’s Black Hair turned to celebrity hairstylist Larry Sims for all the how-to deets:

Step 1:  Apply a foaming wrap lotion to clean, toweled-dry hair and establish a strong side part over the right eyebrow.

Step 2: Blow dry the 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.

Step 3: Flat iron the whole head and use a large barrel curling iron, moving away from the face, to create volume at the crown

Step 4: After volume is achieved, take a wide-tooth bone comb and sculpt hair with a workable, light hold hairspray.

Step 5: For that added red-carpet shine, mist the hairstyle with shine spray to finish the look.
