Ciara was serving up red hot vibes for the 2019 BET Awards Sunday night. The singer pulled up in a bold wrapped mini dress with oversized shoulders complemented with a wet-look bob.
We caught up with Ciara’s longtime stylist César DeLeon Ramirez to find out the inspiration behind her edgy bob. “Ciara’s vibe is usually pretty with a tough cool-girl edge,” said Cesar. “For this particular look, since the shoulders were so prominent, I wanted a length that would sit perfectly just below the chin and compliment the neckline,” he added.
He also shared all the deets behind creating the fire lewk. To get the look, he focused on creating the perfect shape using one of his custom WILDFORM units. “I really wanted to cut our wig into a sharp blunt-angled bob that would complete the edge of the dress but keeping it sexy.”
Next, he flat ironed the entire wig to play up the angles and accentuate her bone structure.
Cesar also shared the secret to achieving the wet look: he applied Dove Care Between Washes Re-Styling Milk, section by section, to the hair. The key, he said, is saturation. “I recommend raking the product through the sections to ensure each strand is saturated.”
To finish off, he tousled her hair to one side for an edgy, asymmetrical look and let a few sexy strands sit on her face and sprayed with Dove Style + Care Compressed Micro Mist Flexible Hold Hairspray for added shine and a soft hold.
