Arriving at the 2024 Grammy Awards in a jaw-dropping gold Maison Margiela dress, Miley Cyrus served golden goddess on the red carpet, with hair to match the moment. Touchably soft with impossible hold, Cyrus’s brunette curls are proof that more is more and as her godmother, Dolly Parton, says: The bigger the hair, the closer to God!

We spoke with celebrity hair stylist Bob Recine to learn how he achieved the sky-high look.

“This last year l featured Miley‘s wet look for hair,” Recine says. “For the Grammys, we decided we wanted something dry and bigger, more fuller hair, but sexy and tousled and touchable.” 

While this look certainly evokes big ’80s hair, Recine accomplished this without any of the frying or over-drying that can lead to serious hair damage. The first step involved protecting Cyrus’ hair before the process of styling began.

“I begin by adding two products to damp hair,” Recine says. “I section by section from root to tip, and apply NEXXUS Epic Shine Anti-Humidity Spray with its anti-humidity qualities to keep moisture and humidity from changing my end result. I also applied NEXXUS Prep&Protect Head Defense Spray to make sure I’m conditioning and protecting hair from high heat as I begin to blow dry each section with a medium round brush.”

Critically, Recine didn’t want Cyrus’ hair to read as stiff.

“As I blow dry each section dry I apply NEXXUS XXL Volume Hairspray,” Recine explains. “Although I love all the NEXXUS Hairsprays I really love this medium hold spray as it leaves hair with no residue and has a strong but soft hold on all styles. And as I also softly tease the roots of hair, I apply it there also as it holds perfectly, and also gently. I also added a few Velcro rollers on top to get that sexy bounce.”

Finally, Recine added one more step of nourishment.

“And to finish my look,” he explains. “I apply a few drops of NEXXUS Repair and Nourish Hair Oil on my fingertips that is infused with the beautiful Rose of Jericho Oil making it lightweight with excellent movement for my voluminous style, giving it a jewel like shine and light reflective qualities that make hair soft and nourishingly healthy.”
