The Voice Season 4: Shakira's Fashion and Beauty Looks
Week 6 Finale
Rocking a show-stopping For The Stars metallic sheath, undone curls were a perfect contrast and the pairing was the ultimate final number for an incredible season. "We wanted to go out with a bang for the finale, so it only made sense to go with wild, sexy curls," Shakira’s hairstylist Kim Kimble told InStyle.com. Craving big voluminous ringlets like Shak’s? "Use a diffuser which helps fluff up curls," says Kimble. And while we were disappointed to see that Shakira didn’t reveal a new hair color for the last episode, we hear that she’ll be showcasing some new looks in the next season.

On Monday for the live performances, Shakira’s chose a dazzling Swarovski necklace (worn as a headpiece) to offset her crisp Acqua top.“It’s actually a necklace, but it fit snugly around her head and we thought it really added to the look,” hair guru Kim Kimble told InStyle.com, who chose to style her hair in a straight style to complement the bejeweled accessory without being distracting. “It’s very noveau bohemian.”

For the results show, Shakira let her detailed Altuzarra jacket take center stage with a pulled back 'do in which Kimble curled the judge’s strands and raked them into a high ponytail. "A dab of wax and a little hairspray will help keep the top really smooth and knock out any flyaways and frizz,” says Kimble. “It was very simple and chic, I like to think of it as couture secretary style. The jacket had strong detailed neckline and we wanted to show that off so having hair down wouldn’t have done it justice.”

"Shakira’s outfit had a '50s feel, so I thought the hair would complement her look,” hairstylist Kim Kimble told InStyle.com of creating a look for the judge's Amen outfit. After setting Shakira’s strands into loose waves, Kimble pulled it all over one shoulder securing the sleek side with a bit of styling wax and bobby pins. “The wax will just help flatten any flyaways and the bobby pins help keep the hair contained to one end,” says Kimble. Insider tip: Use bobby pins in the same shade as your hair color so they’ll be easily camouflaged.

For the results show, Shakira went back to a pin straight style. To achieve the look: “Take small sections and run a comb through it first, then follow with a flat iron,” Kimble explained. “That’ll ensure that you don’t miss any stray pieces.” Dab shine serum on the ends to add shine and smoothness.
Week 3 Live Rounds
Straying from her big voluminous curls last week, the judge went for sleek, straight strands, which contrasted well with her white jacket by Robert Rodriguez. "With pin straight hair, it’s such a clean, minimalist look, and super chic," Shakira's hairstylist Kim Kimble told InStyle.com. "But since her cut is a little jagged and piecey, there’s still a touch of rock 'n’ roll!"
Week 3 Results Show
Shakira rocked the same straight style for the results show looking chic in a metallic top by Skaist Taylor.
Week 2 Live Rounds
In order to embrace the heat of competition (and the blazing temperatures in Los Angeles), Coach Shakira went for full sexy curls to contrast with her neutral sparkling top by Amen. "It’s been pretty hot in L.A. and we wanted to embrace her natural texture," Shak’s stylist Kim Kimble told InStyle.com. "She has naturally thick, curly hair so this look was easy and effortless." She finished her outfit with Bleulab pants, Azzedine Alaia boots, and jewelry by Le Vian.

The following night, Shakira stuck to her au natural 'do in a glam outfit, which consisted of a Robert Cavalli top, a Glam Rock by Marla Guloien skirt and belt, jewelry by H.Stern, and one stunning pair of over-the-knee Christian Louboutin boots.
Week 1 Live Rounds
Kimble complemented Shakira's white Sarli Couture crystal embroidered jacket by raking her strands into a high ponytail with loose curls. “We wanted to juxtapose her ornate jacket with soft, pulled-back hair,” Kimble told InStyle.com exclusively. “It really allowed the jacket to shine.”

For the results show the following night, Shakira went full-on glam in an ombre silk chiffon dress with crystal detailing by Amen. “The clothes always dictate the look,” said Kimble of her choice to create soft flowing waves. To get the look, she used a flat iron rather than a traditional curling iron. “A flat iron creates more of a softer, flatter wave, so its not as bouncy; it’s just a bit sexier,” she said.
During the battle rounds, we caught up with Shakira's hairstylist Kimberly Kimble to find out all about the singer's beauty look. “I wanted her to look soft and polished,” Kimble told InStyle.com. "We had done this look a few weeks ago and Shakira wanted to go for it again, and it paired really well with her outfit.” Clad in black leather shorts from Thakoon, a knitted top from IRO, and a chunky statement necklace from Philipp Plein, Shakira completed the look with soft pinks on her cheeks and lips.
For the blind auditions, Shakira wore a lamb leather jacket featuring removable mesh jeweled sleeves by Italian company Amen. “We were thrilled to see Shakira wearing our jacket on The Voice because she is respected worldwide for both her talent and her style,” Amen’s designer Jacopo Tonelli told InStyle.com from his home base in Italy. “The jacket is feminine and a bit tough, so it was a perfect fit for someone as strong and beautiful as Shakira.”
