MTV Movie Awards 2014 Hairstyle: Kate Upton


Kate Upton’s giant Valley of the Dolls locks was one of my favorite beauty looks of the evening.  Celeb hairstylist: Peter Butler for Moroccanoil’s inspiration:  “When envisioning the hair look that I wanted to create to compliment Kate’s Versace mini-dress, I was inspired by the works of Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin as well as the strong and powerful 80’s woman a la Cindy Crawford and Jerry Hall— I wanted big, polished hair.” Here’s how he got the look, in his words.

“To create lots of volume, hold and lift, I began by applying Moroccanoil Root Boost to the roots of Kate’s damp hair and then blanketed her locks with Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse. Using the Moroccanoil Paddle Brush, I blow dried the hair in large sections.

Next, I divided the hair into 2” sections, misted with Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray, and wrapped each section around a 2” barrel curling iron to create a rough wave.

To create a tighter curl and additional bounce, I divide the hair at the top of the head into 3 sections and curled each with a 1” barrel iron from front-to-back (bang-to-crown).

Once the curls cooled, I brushed out all of the hair using the Moroccanoil Boar Bristle  Classic Brush and created a deep side part with a comb.

Using a dime-sized amount of Moroccanoil Treatment Light, I massaged the products between my hands and then began applying it directly to the hair from the ends up to smooth the entire look. For added shine, I sprayed two pumps of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine into the air and wafted it over Kate’s hair.

Last, I ran a wide-tooth comb through the waves to separate them into a natural look and in true 80’s fashion I blasted the style with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray.”

Yay or nay for Kate Upton?
