Ciara stole the show at the 2015 BET Awards with a Janet Jackson tribute that everyone couldn’t stop talking about. Not only did she do Ms. Jackson’s famous moves justice, Ciara went out of her way to recreate Janet’s hairstyle from the “If” video.
“This day was a tricky day for us,” celebrity hairstylist Cèsar Ramirez admits. “We for sure wanted to capture the essence of Janet, but still remain true to Ciara and her brand. We wanted to try a beautifully natural curly hair look for the stage, but for the red carpet we wanted a softer understated look to feature her Wes Gordon dress.”
Here’s how you can get the look:
Start on damp freshly washed hair. Next, spray generously all throughout the hair with MIZANI’s 25 Miracle Milk to detangle and leave in conditioner.
To hydrate the curls, use MIZANI’s True Texture Perfect Curl. It controls frizz and defines curls.
To finish, I used my diffuser attachment and carefully dried the hair in sections creating volume and definition.
For the performance, I wanted an extra touch to really give us a Janet feel so I added a little highlight for a pop of color, so I used slices of Indique bounce curl which I pre-colored to a light golden brown.
