Lucy Hale of Pretty Little Liars rocked an “effortless yet elegant” style at 2012 The People’s Choice Awards with a new “chic, shaggy” haircut, complementing her one-shouldered, low-back, short black dress
The Look: Effortless, texturized waves
Hair Stylist: Scott Cunha (Margaret Maldonado Agency)
Scott’s Award Show Style How-to:
To get Lucy’s look, Scott gave her a voluminous blowout using the T3 AntiGravity Barrel Brush and the T3 Featherweight Luxe Dryer. Using the T3 SinglePass flat iron in an up and down “S shape” motion, he added a textured wave around the face. The iron’s rounded edges make this technique possible.
“I want Lucy’s look to last all night, so it’s important to add some tighter curls in back.” To create these tighter curls, Scott switched to a clampless curling iron (T3 SinglePass Whirl) and wrapped a few sections horizontally over the barrel of the iron. “Holding the iron horizontally while you wrap the hair around it results in a much more natural looking wave.”
To finish the look, Scott added a texturing paste to help piece out sections of the hair, playing up Lucy’s sexy new shag style. “I’m thrilled — she loves it, and is obsessed!”
We asked Scott how to easily get the look at home:
- Rough dry your hair using a hot dryer like the T3 Featherweight Luxe. Turn your head upside down for extra volume at the roots.
- Once your hair is dry, fight frizz by applying a styling iron.
- Curling your hair with a flat iron can be tricky, instead try the T3 SinglePass Whirl styling wand to create sexy, undone natural waves like Lucy’s.
- Finish by spraying a little hair spray on your hands and scrunching bottom of the hair. Piecing out the sections helps add the texture which makes the style look so effortless!
