Sydney Sweeney’s 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards Hair Is ’90s Chic

It’s hard to name exactly one it-girl in Hollywood right now, but Sydney Sweeney would definitely rank in the top five. Not only does the actor come off a record-breaking season of HBO Euphoria but she recently made her Met Gala debut *and* landed a coveted skincare partnership with Laneige. It’s safe to say she kills it, and her red carpet appearance is a big part of that. This week, Sydney Sweeney’s hair at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards was inspired by ’90s models, further cementing her starlet status.

For the night’s events (at which she received the awards for Best Fight and Best Performance in a Show for Euphoria), Sweeney wore a Miu Miu two-piece set consisting of a pink collared crop top and a shimmering pink miniskirt. Celebrity makeup artist Melissa Hernandez gave the star a sultry smoky eye and nude lip, while hairstylist Bobby Eliot created loose, beachy texture in her medium-length blonde locks.

“When I saw Sydney’s custom Miu Miu pink two-piece look, I immediately felt like I was on the catwalk from the 90s,” Eliot said in a press release. “Think of Karen Mulder’s 90s runways! We wanted the hair to be just effortless and sexy. Touchable texture with body.”

To achieve a 90s model look, Eliot first cleaned Sweeney’s hair with NatureLab. Tokyo Perfect Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. While his hair was still damp, he used NatureLab.Tokyo’s Perfect Volume Blowout Jelly. “I applied it all over my hair, from roots to ends,” Eliot said. [I] layers in the NatureLab. Tokyo Perfect Texture Mist at the roots for more volume.

Next, he used a size 2 ghd natural bristle round brush to smooth the hair for volume and shine, then coarsely dried it with the ghd Helios professional hair dryer, creating a center part once the hair was completely dry.

He then lightly sprayed NatureLab. Tokyo Perfect Shine Oil all over to add shine and provide heat protection before straightening hair with the ghd Platinum + Styler flat iron. For the bouncy waves, he used the ghd Soft Curl Iron and then the ghd Glide Hot Brush. “This Hot Brush stretched the wave and really gave it the polished, effortless vibe I wanted,” Eliot said.

For added volume, Eliot teased Sweeney’s roots using the ghd Narrow Dressing Brush and applied a pump from NatureLab. Tokyo Perfect Smooth Hair Oil to smooth flyaways and give hair a shiny finish.
