Host of the AMAs 2016, Gigi Hadid, unveiled a stunning makeup look and dramatic hairstyle. Zayn Malik’s partner showed off bold lip glamour at the American Music Awards, and Gigi Hadid’s hairstyle had plenty of volume along with soft curls down her back, completing her glamorous look.

Hair guru Bryce Scarlett was behind Hadid’s slicked back hair look as he wanted to achieve a 70s vibe to match with her 70s-inspired white lace gown.

In order to achieve maximum volume, Scarlett used GHD hair dryer along with GHD Platinum Styler. First Hadid’s hair was blown away from her face and combed back using a thickening spray. Scarlett explained how he achieved the big curls by saying, “Since we wanted big, voluminous curls, I used the GHD Soft Curl Iron to curl her hair. The one-and-a-quarter-inch barrel creates nice, bouncy curls, which was exactly what we were going for.”

Once Scarlett curled Hadid’s hair, he began to brush it back to soften up the look. For added volume, he teased the top and prevented fly-aways with the GHD platinum Styler. Just moments before she was set to walk out on stage, he finished the look with a finishing spray to ensure the hair would stay.

All-in-all Hadid’s AMAs 2016 look is easy to achieve on your own, and you may consider it for your up-coming holiday parties, or other events you may be invited to.

Gigi Hadid’s Makeup

As for her makeup, Erin Parsons is responsible for Hadid’s bold lip and sexy eyes. Parsons used Maybelline’s master contour stick, along with the Fit Me matte foundation, to give Hadid flawless and camera-ready skin. For Hadid’s eyes, Parsons used a blushed nude palette, also from Maybelline, and put on a thick layer of mascara. Hadid’s brows were lightly filled to achieve a natural look, not a drawn on one.

As for the bold lip, Parsons opted for Maybelline’s ‘All fired up’ lipstick I combination with ‘Orange danger’ and ‘Wickedly white’ to create an ombre effect.

If you noticed all the products used are from Maybelline, which means you can easily grab them at your local drug store in order to complete the look yourself.

It doesn’t take much to make Gigi Hadid look stunning, as the young model is a natural beauty. Therefore, both her makeup and hair artists worked with Hadid’s natural look and simply enhanced it. By pulling her hair away from her face, it allowed for Hadid’s face to take center stage and really be the lead in the show. Both her hair and makeup matched beautifully with Hadid’s vintage look.

Better yet, Hadid’s look can very easily become your own. By following these simple steps, you too can achieve the Hadid AMAs 2016 look in your own life and feel just as glamorous as Hadid did.
