The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards took center stage with Gwyneth Paltrow’s “Wild Bohemian” look, created by celebrity hairstylist David Babaii.

To achieve the look, Babaii says he always starts with clean hair. The clean canvas theory is his mantra for every red-carpet look. David began by applying Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment and gently massaging it into the hair. The Pequi Oil Treatment is used prior to blow-drying to deliver silky and shiny hair.

With the IT&LY HAIRFASHION Ionic Blow Dyer, David rough-dried the hair for texture and volume. Next, he created a center part and began taking random sections, wrapping only the center portion of some of the strands (leaving the top and ends free) around a 1" curling iron.

Alternating strands were wrapped around the curling iron, leaving only the very tips free. This was done to create uneven curl patterns. Once the strand cooled, David ran his fingers up the strand, creating a “fanning effect.” To finish, he added additional Couture Colour Pepqui Oil Treatment to his hands and tousled the waves for added volume, texture and hold.
