Queen Latifah At Grammy Awards — Her Amazing Hairstyle
Hairstylist Iasia Merriweather breaks down the look:
“Glamming-up Queen Latifah’s fresh, new bob for the GRAMMY Awards began, as always, with a gentle shampoo followed by a moisturizing conditioner — my GRAMMY winners, Pantene Pro-V Smooth and Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner. Both maintain hair’s moisture, elasticity, and promote growth. With the Queen’s hair prepped and primed, GRAMMY make up and wardrobe choices reviewed, I set out to create what I called the ‘GRAMMY Glam-Bob!’ The result: a FLAWLESS, yet minimalistic, bob with a hint of shape-defining volume to highlight layers and add direction!”
Here’s the how-to:
“1. Prep damp hair for blow-drying by applying Pantene Pro-V Smooth Blow-dry Crème. Once hair is dry, apply Pantene Pro-V Smooth with Argan Oil Shine Serum and begin working from back to front, in sections, flat ironing hair straight. Once hair is straight, side part and brush to smooth.
2. Starting at the crown of the head and working in sections, position flat iron at the base of each section and move flat iron in a semicircular or curved motion to create large loose bends in hair. Work from top to bottom and repeat process for each side of part.
3. Gently hand comb loose curls then brush to smooth being mindful of maintaining volume and defining shape. Finish with Pantene Pro-V Stylers Anti-Humidity Maximum Hold Hairspray for a wow-worthy GLAM SLAM!”
Queen’s Exact Makeup Look — How To
Makeup artist Sam Fine told HollywoodLife.com:
“The inspiration for the beauty look all begins with the dress… and Queen Latifah’s request to look elegant, simple and chic! Every look begins with flawless skin — beautiful coverage and a gorgeous glow! I used a synthetic foundation brush to gently apply COVERGIRL Queen Collection All Day Flawless Foundation. This long-lasting formula fuses foundation, concealer and powder in one easy step! It was perfect for an evening of red carpet interviews, her groundbreaking on-stage performance and after parties.
After applying foundation, I dabbed a bit of COVERGIRL truMAGIC Skin Perfector along the bridge of the nose, crest of the cheeks and along the collarbone to highlight her golden skin tone. I used COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lasting Matte Pressed Powder to set underneath the eyes and the center of the face, and then applied my favorite bronzer, COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer, near the outer perimeter of the face for glowing results.
A clean eye doesn’t mean that I don’t use eye shadow; it simply means I used natural looking shades to enhance her eyes. Using my index finger, I applied COVERGIRL Bombshell ShineShadow by LashBlast in Ice Queen over the entire eye to add a shimmering effect. Then, I applied Bombshell Intensity Liner by LashBlast in Pitch Black Passion closest to the lashline, extending it at the outer corner to lift the eye. Lastly, I applied individual lashes and few coats of COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume Mascara in Very Black for added drama. A deep colored lip always looks elegant and chic, so I chose COVERGIRL Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Soaked In Wine (Q850) for an effortless finish!”
