There is a lot of opportunity to create beauty buzz on the Red Carpet of the Miss USA Competition. Standing out in the crowd was singer-songwriter and actress Christina Milian who looked gorgeous with her mane of voluminous curls created by CHI artist Arthuro Gray. CHI by Farouk Systems was a presenting sponsor of the competition and CHI artists were backstage working their magic. Here’s how Gray created Milian’s Red Carpet look:

Christina Milian at the Miss USA Pageant 1 Christina’s hair was dried with the CHI Touch Blow Dryer before applying extensions.

2 The hair was prepped with CHI Silk Infusion and CHI Infra Texture Spray after which I over-directed the parting to create an asymmetrical feel to the style.

3 All hair was curled away from the face using Farouk Royal Treatment Hairspray and a one-inch CHI Curling Iron.

4 Each curl was pinned up and allowed to cool. An application of BioSilk Volumizing Therapy Texturizing Powder added volume at the crown.

5 The style was set with Royal Treatment Hairspray and CHI Shine Infusion and pinned to one side.
