Christina Aguilera at the AMA Awards: Red Carpet How-To from Stylist David Babaii
The 41st Annual American Music Awards aired yesterday and Christina Aguilera stole the show the moment she stepped out on the red carpet, and again shortly after she took the stage for her moving performance. From head to toe, Christina was the epitome of timeless beauty on the red carpet in a Maria Lucia Hohan crisp white satin gown with a side slit and diamond-shaped side cut-outs at the waist, Christian Louboutin shoes, a Jimmy Choo bag, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and flawless makeup. Christina’s look was highlighted by smooth, voluminous curls courtesy of celebrity stylist, David Babaii.
Come her emotionally charged performance, Say Something, with A Great Big World, David styled the songstress’ hair perfectly, with an on-trend bun and braided headband. To achieve her look, David explained you need to start with damp hair and blow it out straight with a sleek center part. Then, he took a significant amount of hair at the nape of the neck and braided it tightly, bringing it up and over the head. He secured it with bobby pins and took the rest of Christina’s hair and put it in a low bun, spritzing it with a styling spray to ensure everything stayed in place during her performance.
For fans of The Voice, this style may look familiar. Well known for her platinum locks and refined style, Christina recently took to her red chair rocking a similar ‘do.
When asked what he suggests for those trying to achieve Christina’s look at home, David mentioned “I recommend Christina and whoever else wants luscious thick hair start taking Viviscal because it makes a big difference and helps achieve luscious, thick, beautiful hair.” While he also said Christina’s tresses are gorgeous, not all of us are blessed with that naturally. Viviscal is perfect for anyone who is looking to get thicker, fuller, healthier hair. David takes Viviscal himself and mentioned he strongly believes “good hair comes from within.”
