The saying goes, "The higher the hair, the closer to God," and Cardi B is getting very close to the Lord at the Grammys.
If anyone is going to walk the Grammys red carpet rocking an updo accessorized with pearls, it's Cardi B. With five nominations under her (Fendi) belt, she had no choice but to turn a major look. And thanks to hairstylist Tokyo Stylez and a bit of Renaissance inspiration, Cardi's managed to give us an art history lesson and a beauty master class all in one. Her outfit, a vintage 1995 Mugler Couture piece, was inspired by Botticelli's The Birth of Venus. She's taking it old school...all the way back to the 1400s.
Cardi's wearing her hair piled atop her head in a retro-looking updo, modernized with a few well-slicked baby hairs. According to a press release, Stylez was inspired by '90s-era updos to "play up her couture ensemble." The updo alone would have been a work of art, but Cardi quite literally took it to the next level with cascading pearls. Picture the top tier of a wedding cake at the most expensive black tie affair you've ever been to and then picture the whole thing in the Louvre.
With all that luxury, you'd think Cardi would have used a super-fancy product to keep it all in place...but Stylez held it down with Suave Professionals Firm Control Finishing Hairspray. To balance the ultra-affordable drugstore spray, Stylez finished locking the pearls in place with the Dyson Supersonic Pro Hair Dryer.
