Celebrity Stylist Ricardo Rojas Shares Red Carpet Tricks To Get Her Hair

Celebrity hairstylist Ricardo Rojas shares his styling secrets on how he created Jessica’s fresh new ‘do. The look was inspired by the 1950s Alexander McQueen dress Jessica donned for the event. “Jessica and I spoke a lot about texture, with a Renaissance influence. Her beautiful red haircolor is reminiscent of the 16th century, Leonardo da Vinci, very Boticelli-esque. So we drew on various inspirations to come up with this look, which ultimately I’d describe as young, youthful Renaissance.” The ponytail had a lot of texture and body to imitate a modern version of a Grecian goddess.

1. Prepare west hair with Velvet Amplifier for smooth styling.
2. Dry the hair perfectly using the Ricardo Rojas Tango Brush, separating the hair in small pieces.
3. Using 1/2 inch curling iron, section by section from top to the bottom, I curled the hair under.
4. Then spray each section with Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray to set each one and pin curl them carefully.
5. I let the curls set while her make-up was done.
6. I took all the hair down, removing the pins and gently brushed out the curls.
7. Using a ponytail holder with a hook in the ends, I secured the ponytail in place while keeping the frame loose around her face so there was texture in the front.
8. Finish with Stay Essential Finishing Spray to maintain the style.

Below are mark’s Celebrity Makeup Artist Mai Quynh’s makeup tricks for creating Ashley’s gorgeous look.

”I began by applying mark Calm & Composed Super-Soothing Moisturizer all over Ashley’s face. After creating a clean, moisturized base, I used mark Primed for Perfection Face Primer. Then, I applied mark Min-A-Real Cream-To-Powder Foundation in Natural using the mark Foundation Brush. To take care of any imperfections, I used mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer in Light/Medium under Ashley’s eyes and around her nose.”

“For a soft, healthy flush, I brushed on mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky using the mark Foundation Brush to the apples of Ashley’s cheeks. Then, I dusted mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in Buff/Natural to set the look. For an extra glow factor, I layered mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in Cameo Glo using the mark Blush + Bronzer Brush.”

“I prepped Ashley’s eyes with mark Please Hold Eye Primer in Light/Medium. Next, I applied mark Keep it Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Exposure to her eyelid, from her lash line to her crease using the mark Flat Eyeliner Brush. Then, I applied mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Java to her crease, blending it outward. To begin lining Ashley’s eyes, I used mark Keep it Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Entourage along her top and bottom lash lines using the mark Flat Eyeliner Brush. I extended the liner upwards and outwards for a cat eye effect. I finished Ashley’s eyes with two coats of mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black to her top and bottom lashes.”

“For Ashley’s lips, I used mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Toasty and mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Lip Gloss in Swell to create a gorgeous, natural smile.”
