Gigi Hadid sure knows how to strike a pose! The supermodel worked the MTV VMAs rainbow carpet with a Priscilla Presley-style volumized hair look and bronzed skin. Get the details on her latest hair and makeup look.
Gigi Hadid surprised us all when she arrived at the Video Music Awards, not on the arm of boyfriend Joe Jonas, but walking alongside Taylor Swift and her “Bad Blood” co-stars. The 20-year-old model made the retro ’60s style modern in her long-sleeved, empire waist mustard gown with its high slit front detailing and a stunning Lorraine Schwartz ring. She wore her hair slicked back with lots of volume and kept her makeup neutral.
Jennifer Yepez worked with GHD tools and Garnier Fructis styling products to create Gigi’s volumized style that was giving us major Priscilla Presley vibes.
“First I dried Gigi’s hair using the ghd air™ hairdryer and ghd ceramic vented radial brush size 3. I started by blowing Gigi’s hair, beginning from the nape of her neck and working towards the front. Once I got to the section surrounding her ears, I applied moose and thickening spray near roots and teased the hair to create a glamorous look straight from the 70s. The secret to her sleek, slicked back look was the new ghd platinum™ styler that straightened the hair with ghd’s tri-zone™ technology, styling at the optimal temperature of 365 degrees which ensures styles last longer and gives added shine.”
Jennifer used Garnier Fructis Full & Plush Root Amp Root Lifting Spray Mousse for volume and set with Garnier Fructis Style Anti-Humidity Hairspray Aerosol.
Gigi Hadid’s VMA Hair & Makeup — Get Her Soft Smokey Eye
For her makeup, Patrick Ta used Maybelline, teasing his VMA essentials on Instagram ahead of the show. In keeping with her ’60s vibe, Patrick gave Gigi bronzed skin, a nude lip and a soft shimmery smokey eye sans the cat eyeliner for a fresher take on the style. To copy her look, use Maybelline The Nudes Palette, applying the shimmery champagne shade across your lids and a lighter brown along the crease and to the brow bone. For her nude lip, use Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs in Blushing Beige.
