Of course, Hadid didn’t disappoint, serving us bronzed goddess realness in a yellow-orange Emilia Wickstead gown and super tan skin, Hadid was looking predictably fine. She topped off her look with a slicked-back bouffant hairdo, conceived by hairstylist Jennifer Yepez. “I wanted to create hair that was simple yet glamorous to help show off her gorgeous dress,” Yepez said of her inspiration for the look. If you loved Hadid’s hair, you’re in luck because we’ve got all the tea on how Yepez put everything together. Below, step-by-step instructions on how you can recreate Hadid’s VMAs style at home.
TECHNIQUE: “First I dried Gigi’s hair using the ghd ceramic vented radial brush size 3. I started by blowing Gigi’s hair, beginning from the nape of her neck and working towards the front. Once I got to the section surrounding her ears, I applied mousse and thickening spray near roots and teased the hair to create a glamorous look straight from the 70s.”
