While party season may be on a Zoom only basis for 2020, it’s still a great chance to go all out with some festive sparkle and a new ‘do. So if you’re looking for some inspo, let us share all about two on-trend looks seen on Lizzo and Addison Rae for the Billboard Music Awards 2020.

The iconic Hollywood waves, created by celebrity hairstylist @mararoszak

For TikTok superstar Addison Rae, celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak took inspiration from “modern yet classic Old Hollywood,” with a focus on tousled waves and lots of shine through the lengths and ends.

To prep the hair, Mara started by blow drying strands using the ghd helios professional hairdryer and a medium round brush to create a nice shiny base as the foundation for the look. Next, she parted the hair in the middle and used the ghd curve soft curl tong to wave the hair towards the face on both sides. To smooth the roots, Mara used the ghd platinum+ styler, then sprayed a fine mist all over for shine and tucked the left side of the hair behind the ear. Finally, for the right side of the hair, Mara created an “S” formation throughout to give the hair a really classic shape and maintain softness.

Described as a “Naomi Campbell moment” by celebrity hairstylist Shelby Swain, for Lizzo’s look it was all about creating super sleek strands to compliment the statement dress she wore on the night.

To create the look, Shelby started by washing the hair with an amplified textures shampoo and conditioner, before blow drying the hair using the ghd helios professional hairdryer to create a sleek and glossy finish. Next Shelby sculpted the hair into a ponytail and once secured in place, used the ghd platinum+ styler to straighten strands. Finally, the ghd curve soft curl tong was used to create bouncy waves for a luxe finish.
