Never one to shy away from a statement-making look, Iggy Azalea arrived at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday with a fresh new ‘do. Taking cues from the likes of Madonna and Gwen Stefani, who have been spotted sporting dip-dyed locks, the 24-year old showed up with her basketball player beau, Nick Young, with a two-week-old blunt lob featuring pink-hued tips.
The Aussie singer’s hairstylist, Ursula Stephen, tells Pret-a-Reporter that the ‘do is the result of boredom on both their parts. “Iggy decided she wanted a change — she was getting tired of her hair so she decided to do the pink, which I thought was fun.” Stephens also shares that since she they’d been going very straight with her locks lately, they mixed it up with a messy beach wave for Sunday night’s red carpet in Las Vegas.
To create the look, Stephen started by washing her hair and applying Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray ($34) on her wet hair, which she then blow-dried — not with a round brush since she didn’t want lose Azalea’s natural waves. Next, “section by section, I sprayed Motions Light Working Spray and then used a flat iron to create the waves, which is very tricky because you have to physically push the wave into the hair, ripple by ripple.” Finally, Stephen pulled out the waves with her fingers, and used a teasing comb to create lift at the roots.
Azalea and Britney Spears performed their single, “Pretty Girls,” and the blonde bombshell also took home the Top Rap Song award for her hit song, “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX. Says Stephen of the look, “It’s perfect for her hair type.”
