Rapper and singer Saweetie tapped Ray Christopher to create a hairstyle to top off her Grammy Awards look. They settled on a playful coil bun that works on and off the red carpet. “The inspiration for Saweetie’s look tonight was simple; let’s make the bun fun again!” exclaimed Christopher, in press materials. And now he’s sharing directions for how you can get the look.
This bun isn’t your average bun but it will elevate the most average of outfits, yet is an unexpected juxtaposition to a Jeremy Scott-designed beaded Moschino gown worn to, say, the Grammys. Baby hairs bumpin’? Check. Embellishments? Check. Shine and moisture? Check, thanks to the soon-to-be released Dove Hair products.
Here’s how to get the look straight from Christopher:
- First, I washed her hair with the new Dove Amplified Textures Hydrating Cleanse Shampoo ($6.99, available at Target February 2020), leaving her long textured hair shiny and clean, then conditioned with new Dove Amplified Textures Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner ($6.99, available at Target February 2020) to add extra moisture before blow drying.
- After completely drying, I prepped her hair with Dove Amplified Textures Twist In Moisture Shaping Butter Cream ($6.99, available at Target February 2020) to add additional moisture to her hair. Then smoothed it down and pulled into a sleek, high ponytail with Dove Amplified Textures Shine and Moisture Finishing Gel ($6.99, available at Target February 2020).
- I then added additional Dove Amplified Textures Twist In Moisture Shaping Butter Cream to her ends to give her natural curl extra definition and hold. Using a coiling technique, I twisted sections of her ponytail to resemble a curl before securing with bobby pins in the bun.
- To finish, I used more Dove Amplified Textures Shine and Moisture Finishing Gel to prevent any flyways and to add extra sleekness, before placing colorful stylish bobby pins to complete her look. The pins added an extra special touch for an avant-garde, high fashion, and chic look.
