Ciara rocked a silver hair makeover at the 2016 Met Ball, held in New York City on May 2. Get her exact hair look below!
Ciara loves to take a beauty risk, and she did just that at the Met Gala, with silver locks befitting of the Manus Vs. Machina theme.
MIZANI Global Artistic Director Cesar Ramirez did Ciara’s hair and told us: “For Ciara‘s, look I really wanted to play up the futuristic theme of “Manus x Machina,” while still keeping a soft and sexy feel. Ciara‘s look is a silver metallic finger wave swept back, coiled and twisted and adorned with artistic arrangement of pins. Met Ball is a time to really push limits and I usually begin conceptualizing as soon as the theme is released.”
Ciara At Met Ball — Silver Hair Makeover
Here’s how to get the look:
“Months of planning went into Ciara‘s final look, from the pre-production of hairstyles to the fine details of product testing for the perfect silver effect. On the day of the ball the styling took a couple hours from setting the hair to pinning to finishing touches. To achieve this look I prepped with Mizani True Textures Style Refresher Milk. I then dried the hair, I iron curled and set her hair in pin clips.”
“I allowed my set to cool before removing my clips and brushing everything with Mizani HRM Spray to begin my dry finger wave. I sculpted each wave into a classic shape and secured with multiple silver Bobby pins. For the back section, I took each set curl and silver bobby pined while coiled inspired by a retro pin curl set with futuristic arrangement finish. This look tonight is sure to be a showstopper and we are excited about it!”
Yolonda Frederick used H&M Beauty for her stunning makeup look. Here’s how to copy her smokey eyes:
“To begin Ciara’s look I always love doing her brows and eyes first. I shaped and defined the brows using the H&M Beauty Specialist Pencil in Chocolate Brown. I love this pencil! I based her lids with H&M Beauty Colour Essence Eye Cream in Sirocco and followed by smudging the H&M Beauty Colour Essence Eye Pencil in Celestial into her bottom and top lash lines. I used the H&M Beauty Eyeshadow Palette in Smoky Nudes to carve out a sultry smokey winged eye using the darker brown shades, then layered H&M Beauty High Impact Eye Colour in Sun Worship and Let It Shine to give the eyes drama fitting for the Met Gala. Finally I topped off the eye with some flirty lashes and H&M Beauty Control Chic Mascara in Deep Black.”
