GET THE LOOK – VOICE TOP 12 LAST NIGHT
Simone Harouche – Wardrobe Stylist
For tonight’s get the look, we wanted to break out some color and really pop!
I made a custom aqua blue keyhole top that I knew would look beautiful on Christina. And it did! I paired that with a Zero by Maria Cornejo pencil skirt and Christian Louboutin T Strap platforms.
On her ears, Christina wore hoops by Jacquie Aiche
On her right hand: middle finger is by 14 karats beverly hills, all other rings by roseark.
On her left hand: all rings by jacquie Aiche
Hope you loved tonight’s look!
Giannandrea Marongiu – Hair Stylist
I started with wet hair and used volumizing mousse on the whole head and length. I then blow dried the hair using a diffuser to amplify the volume. Next I brushed all the hair with a large paddle brush, sectioning the top into three parts and using a large round bristle brush to gently round up the top ends, pinning in place with hair spray and letting it cool down.
Next I took a 1 inch curling iron and made waves in large sections just for texture purposes.
Section the sides and the back by braiding both sides upward in a French type braiding. Clip aside and move to the back section, a three-part braid. Start to braid it half way down, using small clear elastic bands to tie the braid and with the other half now divide into two sections and start with a fish tail braid all the way to the end.
Take the pins off the top and using your hands only – hair spray backwards keeping the volume up and high. Take the side braids and bring it all up to the top center of the crown, using pins to lock it in as you go from the top down the center. Next include the main braid from the back into the regular braiding, then take the fish tail braid and wrap it around the main braid to frame it. This should be at the center back of the head. Hair spray for maximum hold.
This creates an overall amount of cool textures and braiding styles in one effortless classy and modern up do.
Etienne Ortega – Makeup Stylist
For tonight’s look we decided to go with something a little monochromatic.
Xtina’s wardrobe gave us a fun color to play with, so I used a mixture of blues and purples to intensify her eyes and of course a pair of false lashes. With a gorgeous completion and peachy cheeks, finished off this look with my favorite nude lip stick.
