Grammy nominee for Album of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance,
Her hair stylist Rolando Beauchamp calls it "rough, beautiful hair to complement her soft, feminine Blumarine gown."
To achieve the look, Beauchamp started by prepping her damp hair with Garnier Fructis Style Deconstructed Beach Chic Texturizing Spray.
He created the texture by rough-drying the hair and then twisting parts of it into loose cornrow braids from the front to the back of Bareilles' head.
He curled the unbraided ends of the hair in different directions, with a 1 ¼-inch curling iron, then applied a small amount of Garnier Fructis Style Deconstructed Move It Manipulating Gel in his hands, working it into the hair section by section, to create a "roughed-up, slightly slept-in" look. For hold, Beauchamp spritzed Garnier Fructis Style Extreme Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray over the singer's entire head.
It was a creative spin on beachy-boho hair and it managed to look soft and romantic rather than messy bedhead.
