Kim Kardashian West may have shown up to the VMAs in a dress that looks like a pair of satiny cargo shorts you thought were cute in the early aughts, but her hair game was definitely on point. The reality TV star offset her look with decidedly sleek tresses, which celebrity hairstylist Michael Silva says was inspired by the Balmain girl.
Kim’s hair pretty much always looks fantastic and, admit it, you’ve definitely looked on in jealousy at her perfectly coiffed locks. Well, if you were into her hair look last night, you’re in luck because we’ve got the secret for how to get the sleek and chic ‘do. Below, step-by-step instructions on how Silva created Kimmy dearest’s look.
- Begin by prepping wet hair from root to tip with Moroccanoil Treatment Light, followed by volumizing mousse and finished with styling gel.
- Using a boar bristle classic brush, blow dry hair smooth and away from the face.
- Once hair is dry, create perfectly straight strands by flat ironing 2-3″ sections of hair (working from the neck up) and finishing each with shine spray.
- To finish the look, brush hair from the front hairline, back to the nape of the neck and lock in place with a generous mist of extra strong hairspray.
