Julia Michaels at American Music Awards 2017

Brian Fisher styled Julia Michaels hair for the American Music Awards 2017

Inspiration: Brian was inspired by the dramatic red gown and toga style dress Julia Michaels wore last night and created a look that would complement both dress styles.  He decided on a simple clean straight look with her hair twisted back off the face – a look Brian calls “Grecian twist back.”

Step-by-step:

– Prep the hair for styling with John Frieda Luxurious Volume Full Hydration Detangling Mist

– Next, in one inch sections apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow-Dry Lotion, concentrating at scalp

– Then, liberally apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Perfectly Full Mousse and spread throughout the crown area

– In sections begin blowing the hair out, brushing it back and away from the face using a Mason Pearson, lifting hair to volumize the root and directing the heat down the hair shaft to smooth and straighten the ends

– Once the hair is completely dry, create a deep side part and tuck the lighter side behind ear. Smooth out the section with John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch Up Crème

– For the other side, create another part from the crown down to the ear and bring the whole section forward toward face – twist the hair back until reaching behind the ear. Secure the section with a long bobby pin

-To finish, smooth the back layers and tame any flyaways with John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch Up Crème
