Ella Mai is the British bombshell with chart-topping ballads like ‘’Boo’d up’ ‘Trip’ ‘Naked’ among others. She is as striking to look at as she is talented. Apart from her natural beauty, her hair is quite something. Her career has skyrocketed in the recent months as she continues to get some serious airplay and growing fan base. Granted, not all of us have a hair type like hers, but we can draw some inspo from this gorgeous girl. Let’s look at her amazing mane, shall we?
A top bun is a classic hairdo that makes anyone look polished and effortless. Ella loves her top bun and wears it in her video ‘’Boo’d up’’ with slicked down edges. For added fun she wears metal accessories and has one strand of hair out for an imperfect look.
Ella’s most likely has type 3a/ab curls. If you have such hair you can easily pull this off by washing it, moisturizing and letting it air-dry. If this is not your hair type, you can use a fabulous curly wig and edge control for this look.
This is Ella getting the best of both worlds: Straight and curly. The combination of sleek hair with massive volume at the back makes for a look that is stunning and fitting for a red carpet starlet walking down the 2018 American Music Awards.
This variation of the top bun entails tying the hair into a bow of sorts and slicking down the rest of the hair. If your hair is not this long, use a hair extension ponytail or braids to achieve the look.
This looks and feels like she just got out of bed and still looks fantastic. It is achieved by simply putting your hair up in a bun, letting your curls fall down. It gives the impression of not trying or fussing too much. There is beauty in simplicity.
