Halsey is no stranger to jaw-dropping hair looks. Whether she’s showcasing her gorgeous natural texture or wearing down-to-there neon extensions, Halsey’s hair is always the center of attention. Last night, however, the singer decided to switch things up a bit. On May 1, Halsey hit the red carpet before gracing the stage for two performances, in an eye-catching black and midnight blue gown paired with a simple wet look hairstyle.

Halsey’s hairstyle may have been simple, but that doesn’t make it any less stunning. Sporting closely cropped, jet black hair, the singer’s stylist Florido Basallo, a Matrix brand ambassador, lightly tousled her hair to put her stunning face on display and perfectly complement her hazel eyes. The singer loved the style so much, she didn’t change a thing about her hair when she took to the stage to perform her hit single “Without Me” for the last time ever on television.

If you were as obsessed with her look as we were, this is your last chance to get the scoop on everything you need to know about how to recreate the style. After her epic performances at the award show, Halsey completely cleared out her Instagram page. Deleting every picture and leaving three plain, black posts in their place. While some fans are hoping the social media silence means she’s gearing up to release new music (!!!), you won’t be able to look to her Instagram page for hair inspo any time soon. Lucky for you, we caught up with Basallo and he broke down exactly how he styled Halsey’s hair. Continue reading for everything you need to know to recreate the look.

How To Recreate Halsey’s Tousled Wet Look

For this particular look, it’s best to start with freshly washed and conditioned hair. We recommend using the Matrix Total Results Moisture Me Rich Shampoo and Conditioner. Once your hair is squeaky clean, spray the Matrix Total Results Miracle Creator on your damp hair for added moisture and shine.

Next, gently emulsify a good amount of Matrix Style Link Smooth Setter Smoothing Cream in your hands and work it through your damp strands for smoothness and control. The cream texture delivers a satin finish and does not weigh down hair for natural movement. Once you’ve applied the product throughout your mane, begin to style your strands by scrunching and separating the hair. Once you’ve created the perfect amount of piecey texture, brush back the sides of your hair to create a sleeker final look.

For a finishing touch, lock your look in place with the Matrix Style Link Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray. The Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray is your link to lasting hold and shine with an ultra dry finish. Fast drying film formers lock in style for hours while resisting humidity. No helmet effect, no tack, no flaking.

Now you’re equipped with everything you need to style your hair like a celebrity every day!
