I don’t know about you, but I’m obsessed with how stunningly mature Katy Perry has looked lately. I got the chance to style her for the exciting Vanity Fair Oscars party and, like the look I created on her for the Grammy’s this year, we decided to let her hair loose to show-off her full, shiny locks. Her dark brown hair complimented her voluptuous red-striped dress amazingly.

If you want to get Katy’s look try these steps:

Wash with Pantene Pro-V Ice Shine Shampoo & Conditioner to clean and achieve a naturally reflective surface. Mist a leave-in conditioner and the Pantene Pro-V Volume Root Lifter Spray Gel in damp hair to prepare for styling and blow dry. Next, section hair into a side part, setting small sections of hair in a 2″ curling iron directing them away from the part, and misting each section of hair with the volume root lifter gel. When cooling, remember to hold each curl in place with your hands to help hold the style longer. Then brush curls out to create loose, glamorous smooth waves. If you’re copying this at home, I suggest molding waves with your hands, securing them in place, and finishing the look with the Pantene Pro-V Ice Shine Hairspray for shiny, strong hold finish.
