Find Out How to Get Skai Jackson's Gorgeous 'Do

The Disney star's stylist gives us step-by-step instructions.

Published May 2, 2016

Forget Becky. All we care about today is Skai with the good hair.

On Saturday night, hair stylist to the stars Tym Wallace helped actress Skai Jackson show off her curls with a beautiful 'do for the 2016 Radio Disney Music Awards, and we're downright obsessed with the look. Wallace, who has styled stars like Nene Leakes and Kelly Rowland, was kind enough to offer us step-by-step instructions on how to achieve Jackson's amazing style.

Wallace says, "Skai's hair was inspired by the bohemian style of Solange Knowles mixed with the femme fatale vibes of the 1940s."

While it does take a bit of effort, it is well worth it to achieve the look.

Here are the steps Wallace provided to be red-carpet ready:

While damp, two-strand twist your hair using a curling butter such as Dark and Lovely's Au Naturale Anti-Shrinkage Easy Twist Gel N' Butter.

Dry your hair either overnight or using a hooded dryer. Once dry, coat your hands with a little oil such as Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Moisture L.O.C.  Soak It Up Oil Cocktail to take down/unravel your twists.

Comb the twists out using a wide-tooth comb. This way you are elongating the hair without completely disrupting the curls and adding in more texture.

Next, part your hair on your most flattering side. For added volume, feel free to include a couple of extensions in a textured curl pattern.

For more curl definition, take small section and curl using a 1/2-inch barrel iron.

After defining the wave, take a small paddle brush such as a Maison Pearson and brush out the waves to create a soft airy texture.

Finish with a sheen spray such as Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Anti-Shrinkage Sheen Sealing Nectar. 

Not all of us are lucky enough to have our very own stylists, but getting the steps and products to get the same treatment is the next best thing!
