AMAs Beauty: Fergie's Hair Makes a Comeback Too

She hasn't debuted a single in years, but you can't tell based on Fergie's great AMAs hair. Here's how she got it.

Surprisingly, we've seen lot of classically pretty — not punky — hair that artists are sporting to the 2014 American Music Awards.

Fergie, who usually has an edgier approach to beauty, exemplified a popular style of the evening: deep, side-swept hair that cascaded to one side and channeled a modern-day Veronica Lake.

Clad in a clingy black Halston Heritage gown, the pop star kicked off the awards debuting her first single since 2006, "L.A. Love (La La)" from her forthcoming album.

Her hairstylist and Wella Celebrity Ambassador, Andy Lecompte, started the style by priming Fergie's damp hair with two to three pumps of Wella Professionals Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir and distributing it evenly throughout her long hair.

Lecompte blew her hair dry using a medium sized round brush to create volume at the roots. Next, he wrapped two- to three-inch sections of hair around a one and a half inch ceramic curling iron to create long, loose waves.

He created a distinct side part and tucked the hair (on the side closest to the part) behind the ear.

Lecompte finished with a light mist of Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray to prevent flyaways atop Fergie's head.

Between her hair, post-baby body — she and husband Josh Duhamel have a 1-year-old son — and a killer performance, we'd call this quite a comeback.
