Katy Perry Hair and Makeup at VMAs 2013

MTV VMAs Beauty: Katy Perry's Sleek, Sexy Ponytail . . . and Grill!


For the VMAs red carpet, Katy Perry slicked her jet-black strands into a high, tight ponytail that complemented the lines of her gold Ungaro frock. "I wanted to show off Katy's face and expose the high collar on the dress," said Jen Atkin, celebrity stylist for Clear/The Wall group. To achieve this effect, Atkin applied a dime-sized amount of hair oil prior to blow-drying Katy's strands. She then used a mixed bristle brush to pull the singer's hair back into a ponytail. "I recommend the bungee bands for a tight hold," Atkin explained.

While Katy opted for an equally fresh, modern makeup look, she also wore a grill on the red carpet. Talk about shaking things up.
