Christina Aguilera's "Your Body" Hair and Makeup Look

How Christina Aguilera Played Up Her Pastels in Her New Video

Bright colors and loads of glitter flood Christina Aguilera's video for her latest single, "Your Body," but what really stands out is her hair. From pin curls to pastel pink wigs, stylist Mark Townsend worked with Christina to get the look exactly right. "Christina is such an inspiration to work with," he said. "[She] showed me references she had collected and told me about the concept of the video and a character formed." That character just happens to be a rough-and-tough lady with a penchant for murdering men in a flurry of paint splatters.

The vintage feel of the hairstyles came from collaboration. "During my whole career I have gravitated toward the hairstyles from the '30s and 40s," Townsend said. "The tight curls in the purple wig on the bed and the 'set' her hair is in when she gets in the tanning bed are probably the most obvious nods to my favorite time periods." The most outrageous looks are the ones where Christina is rocking a pastel style, which she had been seen sporting in her everyday life. And how did he turn the pop princess's hair those electric shades? "I got these amazing blond wigs and used temporary spray-on color for the purple and lavender hues," he said. "I then set the hair in tight curls." To see these and more of the vintage-inspired looks, make sure to check out the video after the jump.
