Macadamia Professional International Creative Director Giannandrea has been keeping very busy styling Christina Aguilera for all of The Voice live shows, in addition to traveling to Dallas this past weekend to style her for the ACM Awards!
Hair How To: Christina Aguilera’s ACM Awards Look
Hairstylist: Giannandrea, International Creative Director for Macadamia Professional
Inspiration: Half Up, Half Down Country Twist
1.) Apply Macadamia Professional Foaming Volumizer ($25) to wet hair from roots to ends and blow dry sections with a large round brush to amplify volume.
2.) Once dry, backcomb the front of the crown and secure with a clip.
3.) Brush the sides only into a ponytail on the top of the head and tie with an elastic.
4.) Clip a hair extension of the same color inside of the ponytail. Wrap a small piece from the ponytail around the elastic and use small bobby pins to hold the hair in place.
5.) Spray Macadamia Professional Style Lock Firm Hold Hairspray ($25) around the base of the ponytail to set the hair.
6.) To finish the look, unclip the top section and comb the ends back towards the ponytail. Gently twist the hair back directly beneath the ponytail and secure to the bottom of the base with straight pins.
7.) Rub one pump of Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment ($39.95) between hands, then run hands over the sides and down the length of the ponytail for a sleek and polished finished look.
