Check out our girl crush, the gorgeous Gigi Hadid, at the 2015 Council of Fashion Designers of America Fashion Awards…

Yes, Hair is having a bit of a love affair with model girl Gigi (how many times have we featured her now?) so we were beyond happy to see her working this amazing look at the recent CFDA Fashion Awards. When we’d finished gaping at her totally awesome metallic Michael Kors jumpsuit, we realised how beautiful her hair looked for the event, too. Further investigation revealed the secret to her lustworthy locks: celebrity hairstylist, Jennifer Yepez for Moroccanoil. We should have known.

Jennifer said, “To complement Gigi’s beautiful Michael Kors jumpsuit, she and I decided on beautiful beach waves for her hair. This lived-in style is the perfect accent to this outfit, and I love that it can last you three days and still look great.

“To get the shine, body and bounce we wanted, I began with freshly washed hair. My two favorites are Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Weightless Hydrating Mask. Then I applied Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse to her entire head from root-to-tip, followed by Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection from the mid-shaft to the ends. Next, I began to rough dry her hair in sections from the underneath to the top, only smoothing the ends. If your hair is curly, I recommend that you straighten your hair smooth from the roots to the ends.

“Once hair is dry, alternate curling both small and large sections of hair on a 1” and ¾” curling iron. Switching it up allows the style to look more like real beach waves rather than a curling iron wave. Next, comb through all of the waves using a wide tooth comb. I then used a pearl-sized amount of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream just on the ends, and finished off with a mist of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray in Medium Hold to make sure her waves lasted through the night.”
