Shakira's hairstylist has explained her "soft and polished" look crafted for the live rounds of The Voice.
The sassy Latina showed off a chic and sexy style for the first live episode of the American singing contest on Monday.
The new judge on the talent show flaunted loose and flowing long locks which were the work of hairstylist Kimberly Kimble.
“I wanted her to look soft and polished,” Kimberly 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.”
The all-black ensemble Shakira wore was made up of black leather shorts from Thakoon, a knitted top from IRO and a chunky statement necklace. The singer added a handful of vintage Neil Lane rings to give an edgy finish to the style.
The Hips Don't Lie star completed her outfit by opting for a soft pink colour on her lips and cheeks, which Kimberly revealed is a make-up look she does herself.
Shakira's style is a stark contrast to the one favoured by former The Voice judge Christina Aguilera.
Christina famously kicked off the live rounds of auditions by strutting out wearing American flag pants with pink cornrows in her hair.
Not only did Shakira make a stylish and subtle display for her own debut, she dressed her finalists in equally slick black and metallic looks for their performances.
