How to Create Becky G's Latin Billboard Music Awards Show Look - Modern Brown Girl

At this year’s Latin Billboard Music Awards, Becky G knocked it out of the park with her high energy performance and red carpet look. Becky G always slays when it comes to her overall style, including her long tresses. Celebrity hair stylist Cynthia Alvarez shares with us how to create Becky G’s wet curl look and textured ponytail looks so you can rock them yourself at home.

Says Alvarez, “Becky wanted something effortless, yet still glamorous and sexy to match with her amazing pink dress. Keeping it simple with a few great products like these is all you need for great hair. Sometimes simple is the most effective.”

Wet Curl Look

Step One

Alvarez prepped Becky G’s hair by wetting it with equal amounts of water and Dove Care Between Washes Rehydrating Mist.

Step Two

Once her hair was fully saturated, Alvarez scrunched a good amount of Dove Style + Care Curls Defining Mousse, massaging it into small sections from roots to ends. She prefers faking the wet look this way, as the mousse does a great job of keeping waves super defined with maximum flexibility and great hold.

Pro Tip: Don’t use creams or oils to create a wet look because you will have to reapply often. And stay away from gel, as it will leave your hair too crunchy with minimal movement.

Step Three

Next, Alvarez dried Becky G’s hair using a diffuser in order to lock in the right texture. By doing this, her hair dried with a bit of volume, while maintaining the product in tact and still keeping that “wet” look.

Step Four

To finish the look, Alvarez spritzed a high gloss spray liberally through her hair followed by Dove Style + Care Compressed Micro Mist Flexible Hold Hairspray, achieving that effortless and sexy curls look.

Textured Ponytail Look

“Since there wasn’t much time in between the red carpet and her performance, Becky wanted a style with a smooth, quick and simple transition and this was perfect”

Step One

Alvarez applied a small amount of Dove Care Between Washes Foam Dry Shampoo to her roots to help loosen up the mousse from the wet curls look. Then she styled her hair into a mid-ponytail.

Step Two

Next, she wanted to do a dramatic baby hair look and used Dove Style + Care Curls Defining Mousse to mold the small pieces into place.

Step Three

Once Alvarez was happy with the shape and style, she locked Becky G’s hair in place with an edge control gel.
