Ciara strutted on the Met Gala Red Carpet in silver and black stripe Michael Kors gown. Her “Gilded Glamour” was heavily highlighted in her hairdo with celebrity hairstylist Cesar DeLeon Ramirez adding silver accents throughout her middle part, and several inches of length. “I knew I wanted the hair to make a statement while still complimenting Michael Kors’ design. I was immediately in love with the silver detailing and that became the inspiration for the creative elements I wanted to add to the hair.” stated Ramirez who used @unite_hair products to complete Ciara’s look.

  • “I prepped her wig with LAZER Straight Relaxing Fluid to tame and smooth the hair.”
  • “Next, I used water, 7SECONDS Detangler, and U Oil and distributed it from roots to ends. Then, I blow dried the hair to prep so I can begin flat ironing. These products help seal, nourish, repair and protect the hair from heat, but more importantly reduces dry time!”
  • “After flat ironing, I used CONUNDRUM Paste and the extra strong-hold SESSION-MAX Spray, to help me control the hair to pull it into a bun.”
  • “I finished with 7SECONDS Glossing Spray to give the style a shiny, polished look.”
