Nina Dobrev’s Hair At People’s Choice Awards — Exact How To
Let’s break it down:
Riawna wanted to give Nina a sleek & sexy updo to show off her sparkly dress that came up high on her neck.
“She created a Mohawk containing about 100 knots that went from the back of her hair all the way to the top, with a little bit of texture. In order to achieve this textured look, Riawna spritzed KMS California HAIRPLAY sea salt spray ($18.99) to give Nina’s hair the natural texture it got when she was swimming in the ocean in Australia where she just got back from this morning.
Then, to finish the look and keep Nina’s hair in place all night, Riawna sprayed KMS CaliforniaHAIRSTAY maximum hold spray ($17.99).”
