Laila Ali was a knockout beauty at the 2016 ESPY Awards! The former boxing pro decided to go for a classic ponytail hairstyle and smokey eye makeup for a winning beauty combo. Get the details on her ESPYS hair and makeup, and try it for yourself.
Laila Ali, 38, reminded us all that sometimes a simple look can make a major impact. While attending the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles on July 13, Laila proved she’s a champ in the boxing ring and on the red carpet with her sleek ponytail, sultry smokey eye and nude lip.
Approaching the ESPYS with a head-to-toe classic look, Laila chose a black and white gown from Nicole Miller. The floor-length dress included a black skirt with a white off-the-shoulder top and tiny cutout at the front. Laila accessorized her dress with oversized diamond earrings and a diamond bracelet.
To complement her elegant dress, Laila’s hairstylist Robbi Rogers styled her hair into a ponytail. Positioning the ponytail at the crown of Laila’s head, Robbi kept the look sleek and smooth. To get a similar finish with your next ponytail, whether you have textured or fine hair, use a smoothing product like Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Edge Control Smoother. Not only will this tame flyaways and give you a sleek finish, but it also contains aloe and macadamia oil to keep your hair moisturized.
Autumn Moultrie was behind Laila’s ESPYS makeup, which included glowing skin and a smokey eye and nude lip combo. Putting the focus on Laila’s eyes, Autumn used dark eyeshadow and liner that was blended out with several coats of black mascara.
Of course, Laila was on hand to help honor her late father, heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali. After Laila’s heartfelt tribute at the BET Awards, at the ESPYS, Muhammad Ali was honored with a speech from Basketball Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and a performance by Chance The Rapper.
