Ashley Greene's bouffant hair, which was styled by Danilo, was one of the best high-volume looks in a night that was replete with big hair and Bumpits. Ashley was obviously rocking the extensions, but this look is surprisingly easy to get with natural hair, too. To find out some tips on replicating her VMAs style, keep reading.
- Danilo sprayed Pantene Pro-V Root Lifter Gel ($5) on Ashley's hair when it was wet, focusing on her crown area. Then, he applied a light smoothing lotion, Pantene Pro-V Restoratives Frizz Control Ultra Smoothing Balm ($5), on the mid-shaft and ends to keep it from frizzing.
- Next, he blow-dried Ashley's locks straight.
- Then, he pulled the top half of her hair back. Danilo used a French lacing technique to create volume, but for an everyday look, I recommend teasing the underside — from your hairline to your crown — to add volume. If you have fine hair, you might want use some hairspray on this section before you tease so that the comb's teeth can "grab" your hair a little easier.
- To finish off, Danilo used a large-barreled curling iron to create large, loose curls, spraying with plenty of heavy hold hairspray, using Pantene Pro-V Texture Hairspray ($4.50) to keep things in place.
