How to Get the Poufy Art Glam Hair of Your Dreams
Big hair is back, babes, and this time around, it’s not just for Jersey Shore guidettes â€” itÂ even works for artsy bishes!
Your next glam look could use some inspo from the girl with the crystals and marked-up Converse. We did up NYC-based YouTuber Hitomi’s hair using Amika productsÂ and it’s your lucky day because we’re sharing a tutorial for you to copy.
Itâ€™s the small details that makes us truly unique. Â Whether you are high or low maintenance with your hair, thereâ€™s always an easy way to put your own signature on a look.
For extra long, pin straight tresses like Hitomi’s, it was a matter of finding a few flyaways to set off her style. Prep the hair by running Amika’s Haute Mess texture gel midway through the lengths of the hair. Use a blower to rough dry the product into the hair for hold.
Using a medium-sized iron such as the 32mm Tourmaline Curler from Amika, wrap two-finger width vertical hair sections. Tilt your head upwards and shake your hair to separate and loosen the curls. Take baby hairs, broken off or damaged pieces around the hairline/crown area and turn them into memorable hair details.
Draw them out with your fingers or a rat-tailed comb and spray them into standing submission with Amikaâ€™s Headstrong hairspray. Pair this hair look with a smart, bold lip (Dragon Girl by NARS) that says, “Yes, I meant to leave my house like this.” Confidence is golden.

Just because you rock a pony doesnâ€™t mean you have to look like Michelle Tanner.
Pick an iconic ponytail reference and put an Art Basel twist on it. A holding spray like Amikaâ€™s Touchable hairspray is good for gathering the hair into a tight ponytail without being too sticky. Hitomi has a high ponytail that couldâ€™ve lived a life as a tired top knot. Instead, the I Dream of Genie classic was heightened with soft teasing and a few extra elastic bands at the base of the ponytail.
Amikaâ€™s Un.Done Texture spray was used generously give the ends a more lived in and casual look. The ponytail was then flipped to the front and sculpted around her face. This framing action is a great way to emphasize an interesting eye makeup look. Hitomi has Electric Blue eyeshadow by MAC as a winged liner here.
The coolest hair and makeup looks are always the ones that look effortless and impossible to replicate.
A simple comb-over part can create the illusion of haphazard glamâ€¦ in a good way though. After curling hair with a medium to large sized wand (Amikaâ€™s Titanium Tapered Curler 25-18 mm), brush the hair to one side from scalp to ends. Use large horizontal sections from the front of the head to the back if needed.
Lightly mist Amikaâ€™s Touchable hairspray along each Â section as you brush, then brush and spray again for extra hold. This look will give hair a dual textured sleek and messy vibe. The sleeked curls at the crown will create an elegant wave for added drama.
The flow of this hair moment fully supports a major glam makeup look. Here, it is paired with a hologramic lavender blush along the cheeks and temples. Try Obsessive Compulsive Cosmeticâ€™s Iridescent Pigment in Datura. A light metallic silver along the eyelids pulls it all together.
And thatâ€™s an easy enough start for your Art Glam beauty moodboard. Tuck your nude palette again and be basic next season.
