Grammys Hair: The Inspiration Behind Kim Kardashian's Textured Lob
She was going for edgy and "model-y" says her hairstylist, Michael Silva.
Her bedazzled and heavily beaded boxing robe of a vintage Jean Paul Gautier gown (literally) eclipsed most of her, but Kim Kardashian's freshly cut lob is still sure to get plenty of attention and inspire copy cats in the coming weeks.
"She wanted to do something different," says her hairstylist, Michael Silva. For her Grammy hair look, the two referenced editorial images of Kate Moss until landing on something edgy and "model-y."
"It was more of a fashion feeling," says Silva, "but scaled back to keep the juxtaposition between the hair and the gown."
To get Kardashian's "model-y" look, Silva started by using Shu Uemura Ample Angora Volumizing Mousse and Kerastase Touche Finale Serum for some shine at the ends of the hair. He then sprayed a little bit of Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray and blew out the hair, set it in S-wave curls and finished the look with Kardashian Pure Glitz Hairspray.
"She cut a full foot of hair off," says Silva. "With that kind of change, there are more options, and it's easier to work with."
He adds that her new hair length feels fresh, beautiful and current. "You have to keep it current," says Silva. "The best thing about [Kardashian] is she doesn't get stuck in something. She's willing to take a risk."
Since Kanye West admitted to Ryan Seacrest on the Grammy red carpet earlier in the evening that he "gets bored easily," perhaps we'll be seeing Kardashian's fashion and beauty risks accelerate at an even faster clip than usual.
