We never know what look Katy Perry is going to wear next! She rocked the 2014 VMA’s red carpet on August 24 with her hair styled in thick bangs and long dramatic waves. What do you think about her voluminous look?
Katy Perry’s MTV Video Music Awards Look
Katy’s hair was styled by Clyde Haygood of The Magnet Agency for the evening, in which she received the award for Best Female Video.
To start, he sprayed hair with Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger HydroMist Blow-Out Spray before blow drying to give hair volume and some support. He then worked with 2″ sections and sprayed Paul Mitchell Hot Off The Press thermal protectant spray to help protect hair from heat styling and prep her to last through the night, before curling each section.
Clyde then created glamorous waves by twisting and wrapping her strands around the Paul Mitchell Neuro Unclipped Styling Rod for a full look versus the piecey, beach wave made from curling irons.
He then sprayed hair with Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shine Spray to give her hair and bangs that glossy shine and completed the look with Paul Mitchell Stay Strong Express Dry Strong Hold Hair Spray to keep the waves looking gorgeous and voluminous all night.
Katy Perry’s VMA Beauty
Katy’s makeup was done by Jake Bailey. He told HollywoodLife.com:
“Katy Perry’s VMA look tonight was quintessential Katy. Bright red lips, black liquid liner and big lashes. I first prepped her skin and then matched her skin tone to COVERGIRL’s Ready, Set Gorgeous Foundation in Warm Beige and began by buffing a thin layer all over her face and neck using a flat tipped, soft bristled kabuki style brush for a seamless airbrushed effect. I highlighted her under eye area and cheekbones with Ready, Set, Gorgeous Concealer in light/medium.
I began her eye makeup by blending a warm brown shadow, Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Scorching Cocoa into the crease of her eyelids and a pearlescent white shadow Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Blazing White onto her eyelid and browbone for highlights. I also dusted some of that same pearlescent shadow onto the ridge of her cheekbones for an extra glow. I then created a sharp jet black cat eye using Bombshell Intensity Liner. I finished the eye look with several coats of Bombshell Volume Mascara.
I then sculpted her cheekbones using the darker shade from the COVERGIRL’s Clean Glow Blush compact and added warmth to the apples of her cheeks with the paler peachier shades in the compact.
I completed the look by lining her lips with LipPerfection Lip Liner in Hot and the matching LipPerfection Lip Color shade in Hot 305. I topped the lipstick with a coat of Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Crystal Flame for a metallic sheen. Just before she left I dusted her with a touch of Ready, Set, Gorgeous Powder in light/medium to keep her looking fresh for the red carpet.”
