Kelsea Ballerini arrived on the 2017 ACM Awards red carpet looking like a true princess. Her hair was styled effortlessly in braids and her smokey eye was beyond gorgeous. Get her look in just a few simple steps!
Kelsea Ballerini’s hair and makeup at the ACM Awards was so on point. Her blonde hair was pulled back in pretty braids. Not many girls wore their hair up, so we have to give props to Kelsea, 23, for thinking out of the box. Paul Mitchell partnered with celebrity hairstylist, Bridget Brager, to take Kelsea’s hair to the next level for the ACMs. Here’s how to get her look:
Start with damp hair and apply a volumizing mousse (Paul Mitchell Extra-Body Sculpting Foam) from roots to ends to before rough drying hair with a blow dryer (Paul Mitchell Express Ion Dry) and hands to enhance volume and texture as much as possible
For added definition, use a 1-inch Marcel curling iron (Paul Mitchell Express Gold Curl Marcel 1” Barrel) on dry hair to create bend and texture
Once desired texture is achieved, apply a smoothing cream (Paul Mitchell NEON Sugar Cream) from roots to ends to add shine and keep hair in place before beginning to braid
Part hair down the middle, before creating two Dutch braids on each side of the head, stopping the Dutch braid at the ear and then braid
With remaining hair at the back of the head braid into a fishtail braid, and then fold the fishtail braid to the back of the head and secure with hair pins into a bun, wrapping the Dutch braids around to finish the look
Apply dry shampoo (Paul Mitchell Dry Wash) to braids for before fluffing and pulling apart for enhanced definition
Finish the look with a flexible hold hairspray (Paul Mitchell NEON Sugar Confection)
Her beauty look was one of our favorites of the night. She rocked a deep smokey eye that accentuated her gorgeous blue eyes. She topped everything off with a simple nude lip. Her hair and makeup paired perfectly with her red carpet look. Kelsea stunned in a green Monique Lhuillier gown with floral detailing. The top half of her dress was a darker hue, while the bottom half was a mint green.
Kelsea is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year alongside artists Maren Morris, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, and Kacey Musgraves. She’s also up for Video of the Year for her “Peter Pan” music video.
