How to get Lauren Conrad's MTV VMA Hair

How-To: Lauren Conrad's MTV VMA Hair

For seasons to come, girls will bring pictures of LC's hairstyle at the 2008 VMAs into salons and confused hairstylists will try to piece together what is going on in the back of Lauren's head. Is her hair braided? Is it curled? Twisted? A bun? A chignon? Those hairstylists will silently curse Christine Symonds, stylist at Warren-Tricomi Los Angeles, who did Lauren's hair for the awards. "It's pretty simple. Just a lot of pins. It's a pin-head 'do!" she said. "We did a similar look at the premiere party for The Hills, but for the VMAs we made it more romantic."

For her how-to, just


  • STEP ONE: Part hair in the middle. Use a medium-barrel curling iron to create some defined waves. Symonds then smoothed on Warren Tricomi Finishing Cream to prevent frizz.
  • STEP TWO: Pull all the hair except the front section on either side into a messy bun. "The kind where you make a ponytail but don't pull it all the way through, not the kind where you coil hair around and put an elastic around it," explained Symonds. Secure with a clear elastic, like Blax Snag-Free Hair Elastics.
  • STEP THREE: Symonds used blonde bobby pins, like Scunci Classic Pins, to twist up curls from the front and pin them into the bun.
  • STEP FOUR: Secure the look with hairspray. Symonds used Redken Workforce 09.
