Ciara stunned at the VMAs in a fabulous Givenchy gown, but it was her beautiful hair color that really caught my attention. Celebrity hair stylist Chase Kusero of Prive Salon is the mastermind behind the singer's amazing locks.

"I knew I had to create something effortless and reflective," says Chase. "Ciara's blonde ombre has progressively moved into something more hand painted now. Most recently we went from blonde to brunette and the VMAs was the perfect time to paint in several different warm tones that melt together creating a custom hand painted effect much newer than ombre."

Chase offers insight into achieving the look:

• The key to effortlessly sexy long hair is long layers. Ciara's layers are cut high on the head and left long around her face, these layers that border the face are enhanced with boldly painted sections of the tone best fit for the skin.

• Hand painted hair is the new ombre. Still keeping the roots natural, sections are picked out and painted in different phases with several tones of caramel blondes and autumn ambers to create a more custom melted effect. Ciara's color created using L'Oreal Professional and Redken 5th Ave products.
