This was another funky and fresh look for Rihanna at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. Her top layers had light blonde and blue pieces added to create all over contrast. It's definitely not for the faint-hearted, so if you're brave, go for it!

Styling Steps

1. Style Sides Down Using Moulding Cream

Placeholder articles

Using a small amount of moulding cream, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward motion. For added texture, pinch the ends as you go sparingly.

2. Style the Back Messy Using Moulding Cream

Placeholder articles

Apply moulding cream to your palms and then roughly rub the moulding cream into back of your style. For a messier finish use circular hand movements.

3. Tease Hair

Placeholder articles

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.

4. Lift Roots Using Moulding Cream

Placeholder articles

Apply some moulding cream to your fingertips and then rub it into your roots while lifting your strands for added body. Be sure not to use too much moulding cream at the roots as this can result in a glugy and thick uncomfortable feel.

5. Use Moulding Cream for Texture

Placeholder articles

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips and then pinch small clumps of hair in an up and forward motion. Pinch the clumps in different directions for a messier look.

6. Spike Top Using Moulding Cream

Placeholder articles

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips, then grab a small section of hair and rub the moulding cream into the roots before twisting and pulling your hair upwards. For messier spikes, use a generous amount of moulding cream while twisting your hair in different directions.

7. Apply Lacquer

Placeholder articles

Lacquer is great for strong hold. A small amount is all that is required to finish and should be applied from an arms length distance to the entire style.
