Vampires, women with blue armpit hair, guys in rolling plastic hamster balls and hearses. Sounds like a typical Sunday summer evening on Toronto’s Queen Street.
Actually, it was the highly anticipated 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards. And it ROCKED. Literally.
Nina Dobrev of Vampire Diaries fame was in town to present an award at the MMVAs. She is so adorable but we hate to say it…we did NOT like her dress. Maybe it was the big bow?
Even if her outfit was a wardrobe fail (to us), her hair was red carpet cool. Stylist Kristjan Hayden of Civello created Dobrev’s fun beachy ponytail, then later changed up the look by letting her hair down for her award presentation.
Here is how how you can get the look:
1. Apply Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother to prep hair and blow dry smooth.
2. Curl hair in one-inch sections with a small iron, and scrunch in Aveda Air Control Hair Spray to add texture.
3. Gather hair high on head and secure in a ponytail.
4. Later in the evening, shake out curls and mist Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray through the front to keep the hair in place.
