Kim Kardashian's hair stylist Michael Silva used a mixture of serum and oil to keep the star's hair looking wet at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Kim Kardashian went for a “fresh and sexy” hair look at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.

The queen of reality TV showed off a new style at the annual awards bash on Sunday night (28Aug16), swapping her normally sleek hair for a tousled look.

Hair stylist Michael Silva is the man behind the transformation, and he calls the wet look waves “a nice departure” from Kim’s usual blow-dries.

“We wanted to keep it fresh and sexy,” Michael told W Magazine. “When she came in she was just sort of not done and her hair was damp, and we said let's play up this texture. That endless summer vibe. Obviously, her hair was not wet, I just created that kind of effect.”

Kim teamed the new look with a vintage off the shoulder John Galliano dress and Manolo Blahnik shoes.

To create the red carpet waves, Michael relied on serum to ensure Kim’s hair maintained the wet look.

“I put a ton of the Kenra Platinum Revive Oil in her hair (when it was) wet, and worked it in with my hands. No brushes, no combs, all finger styling,” he smiled. “And then, I really dried it completely with the diffuser, and finish it off with some more oil. That hair was totally soft and touchable, it wasn't hard at all.”

Fans praised Kim’s make under on social media, gushing that the relaxed look was one of the standout styles of the evening.

Kim herself posted about her hair on Twitter, telling her 47.6 million followers she had gone for “Wet beachy glam last night #vmas.”
