The holiday season may have you dreaming of a white Christmas, but everyone is still having fun in the sun down in Miami. Celebrities and Instagram influencers flocked to tropical city over the weekend to celebrate the annual Art Basel festival. After days full of appreciating the latest and greatest art, celebs hit the afterparties with looks to rival even the most breathtaking painting.
One of our favorite looks of the weekend belonged to none other than Ellie Goulding. The singer attended the Chloé Art Basel party and we can’t get enough of her effortless style. Goulding paired a flowy, white tunic dress with equally stylish waves and we’re obsessed. Lucky for us, the stunning style was created by our very own George Papanikolas, Matrix brand ambassador and celebrity stylist. He’s sharing exactly how you can create the style at home.
Continue reading if you want to learn how to recreate Goulding’s look.For this look, you’ll want to start with clean, dry hair. We suggest washing and conditioning your hair with the Matrix Total Results High Amplify Shampoo and Conditioner. This silicone-free formula uses protein for an added boost while providing instant lift and up to 35 percent boosted volume when used as a complete system.
After you’ve rough dried your hair, apply a palmful of the Matrix Style Link Volume Builder Mousse from the mid-lengths to the ends of your clean, damp hair. The airy mousse texture delivers lasting touchable volume with no crunch or tack. This will help to ensure your wave doesn’t fall flat and will last all night long.
Before you begin curling your hair, prep your strands for heat styling by spritzing your them with the Matrix Style Link Heat Buffer Thermal Styling Spray. The spray provides heat protection up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and helps hair have a smooth and shiny finish, free from heat damage.
Then, starting at the back of your head, use a 1-inch curling iron to curl narrow sections of hair. Continue curling your hair until you’ve completed your entire head. Once you’ve finished curling your mane, run your fingers through the ringlets to gently separate them until you achieve the waves you desire.
For a final touch, set your look in place with the Matrix Style Link Volume Fixer Hairspray. We love the strong hold hairspray because it ensures that the even diffusion of lightweight polymers enhances support to voluminous hairstyles.
Now you know you can create a red carpet-worthy hairstyle in no time!
