Scotty Cunha’s Top 5 Hairstyles That Make Us Say: “Wait, What!?”

Our newest collaboration with the stylish and sassy, Scotty Cunha, has everyone around us obsessed with his trendy, yet simple, and totally relatable phone case. However, as in love as we all are with his case, we are equally as in love with those magic hands of his! Scotty’s work has gained him over hundreds of thousands of fans as well as A-list celebrity clientele and friends. So, with that being said, let’s take a look at Scotty’s top five hairstyles that make us say: “Wait, What!?”

From @thescottycunha on Instagram.

1. Sofia Richie

If we can count on anyone to pull off this slicked back look, it’s Sofia Richie. Her blonde locks were gelled back by Scotty in 2016 for the InStyle Awards. This bold and sleek style emanates confidence, sophistication, and power. Three things that we can easily say Sofia and Scotty both have incredible amounts of.

The amount of time and precision that Scotty must have put into creating this style and making sure that it would stay in place the entire night of the awards has us all amazed, and, of course, saying “Wait What!?”

2. Model Regina Maria Gonzalez

The next look on our list is this top knot that Scotty put together while demonstrating his favorite ways to use Leonor Greyl hair products. As said by Scotty himself, “A top knot is a quick way to edge up any holiday look!” And we totally agree!

A classic top knot is daring and makes a statement. Much like Scotty. His story of how he went from a barista at Starbucks to a hairstylist for A-list celebrities demonstrates how driven he was to be successful in the world of fashion and beauty because in order to become successful, you have to be daring. And his hairstyles have definitely made the statement that sleek and simple goes a long way!

3. Khloe Kardashian

The Kardashians are known for putting their entire lives on television. We’ve seen them laugh, cry, yell at each other, and most importantly, we’ve seen how flawless their hair and makeup always looks.

Ever wonder who the master behind their perfectly tousled waves is? That’s right, Scotty Cunha! Just from looking at Khloe’s hairstyle in this picture, you’d almost think that she rolled out of bed with this gorgeous hair. However, it was styled with a lot of thought and care in order to appear effortless.

4. Miley Cyrus

We all remember those days back in 2010 when we absolutely adored the long brown locks of Miley Cyrus. And we all remember how much our hearts broke when she decided to chop it all off! (She totally still rocked the pixie cut, though.) Her hair was pretty much every pre-teen girl’s goal in life. Little did we know that the secret to getting such beautiful hair was just to have your own Scotty Cunha!

Miley Cyrus was among one of the first celebrities that Scotty styled. You can give all of the credit for her beachy waves in this shot from Parade magazine to Scotty The Hair God. If that’s not already one of his nicknames, then it is now!

5. Kylie Jenner

The Kardashians happen to be some of Scotty’s most frequent clientele. So much so, that they have actually become BFFs with him. Having a best friend who is also crazy good at styling your hair has to be one of every girl’s dreams in life. At this point, we can all recognize that tousled loose waves seems to be a style that Scotty loves and excels at. And look at that volume!

Kylie is practically known as the “hair chameleon.” She constantly shifts her hair from long to short, and from blue to green to black and to blonde. And she always seems to make it look absolutely stunning. However, we can all agree that her hair looks best when styled by Scotty.

As you can see, we’re kinda, maybe, sort of, a little obsessed with Scotty Cunha and his fantastic hair styling skills. Do you have any free time to come down to Fifth and Ninth headquarters to style our hair, Scotty? Anyway, if this article doesn’t already have you completely infatuated with this guy, then you should go check out his exclusive interview with our creative director, Bryce! His story of how he got started in the beauty industry and how crazy, yet spectacular, his life is will have you saying “Wait, What!?” Click the link here to read all about it!

5 Back-To-School Looks: Monday-Friday

MONDAY-FRIDAY: Back-To-School Looks

If you’re anything like us, then you seriously can’t believe how quickly this summer flew by! All of a sudden, it’s the end of August and time to get back into the swing of things. With that, comes lots of planning and STRESS! As you know, one of the most important things about starting school is the outfits (aside from learning, of course…). So, we decided to help you out by planning out the perfect week-long wardrobe! Not to mention, we even included the perfect iPhone case to go with each look, so your most prized possession can be just as stylish as you are!

YLS, YSL

MONDAY

To start off the week, we suggest going for a look that’s both professional and chic. While you can still maintain a somewhat casual appearance, it’s also important to make a good first impression. These culottes pants create the perfect appearance, especially when paired with platform sandals and a basic top. We also paired this look with our YLS case, which was inspired by the designer brand Yves St. Laurent. With this look, you’re sure to turn heads in the best way!

Shop YLS

TUESDAY

Next, we decided to brighten things up with a more laid-back look. Of course, we chose a bell-sleeve top  to create the illusion that you have your life together. The distressed red and white stripes are bold enough to be noticed, yet still toned down. We coupled this top with a patchwork denim skirt and textured mules to complete this very trendy outfit. We also thought this look would go well with our Ophelia iPhone case, because it’s simple, yet unique.

WEDNESDAY

For Hump Day, we decided to brighten up your look entirely! Nothings gives off happier vibes than flowy dresses and bright colors. We especially loved the details on the hem of this dress, as well as the shape overall. It’s flattering on all body types, and comfortable, too! We paired this look with our Burlesque iPhone case to bring out the pink and stick to bright colors!

THURSDAY

By Thursday, we’re all ready for the week to be over, so we decided to choose a look that would represent your mood. This black denim overall jumper is super trendy and so easy to wear! Simply throw on your plain white tee and call it a day! We think this would even look good with Converse of Vans. Since this look is a bit more grungy, we wanted to pair it with one of our trendiest phone cases, the Eat In & Get Out case, by Brielle Biermann.

FRIDAY

TGIF! As a reward for making it through the week, it’s time to reward yourself by wearing your favorite pair of jeans! If you want to spice up the look, you could go for some statement jeans with embroidered designs, and finish off the look with a pair of mules. We paired a simple look like this with one of our most simplistic  cases, the Lashed case!

We hope you love these ideas for back-to-school looks!
