Whether it’s for a red carpet appearance or casually lounging around in your robe (as you do), Ciara loves to style her tresses in an updo – and her go-to style is utterly envy-inducing.

When we think of the many looks of Ciara, one thing is for sure: she is a total colour chameleon.

Editor’s tip: Re-create Ciara’s tousled waves with the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam. Work it through your tresses (before blow-drying) to enhance each strand for wonderfully textured waves.
