Shakira rocks 'nouveau bohemian' tresses

Shakira's hairstylist has discussed how she crafted two very different looks for the star this week.

The sassy Latina showed off a funky and glamorous look on US TV show The Voice earlier this week.

Shakira styled a dazzling Swarovski necklace as a headpiece to offset her crisp Acqua top.

The judge's hairstylist Kimberly Kimble chose to put Shakira's hair in a straight style to complement the bejewelled accessory, rather than distract from it.

"It fit snugly around her head and we thought it really added to the look," Kim told "It's very nouveau bohemian."

On the Tuesday episode of the show Shakira dazzled in an embroidered Altuzarra jacket, which required simpler styling to pull off.

Kim let the singer's jacket take centre stage by putting her hair into a pulled back updo.

She did this by curling strands of Shakira's hair before pulling 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," Kim explained. "Try out the same the same technique to upgrade your gym ponytail and create more volume by simply teasing the crown of your hair. It was very simple and chic."

Hair guru Kim says Shakira's look is high fashion chic. She added that we can expect another highly considered appearance from Shakira next Monday and Tuesday, which will be the finale episodes of The Voice.

"I like to think of it as couture secretary style," she finished. "The jacket had strong detailed neckline and we wanted to show that off so having hair down wouldn't have done it justice."
