Christina Aguilera is a style chameleon, whether she’s showing off a classic Hollywood look or going Dirrty. So much so, in fact, there’s even a Get the Look section on the singer’s website. No stranger to piercings or taking risks with her style, Xtina showed off her many (many!) new piercings last night on The Voice. But the placement of her new bling is not at all where you’d expect.

Sporting sleek-straight, long lavender locks, Christina had one side braided in the front. While that alone is statement hair, what knocks this particular style out of the park is that the braid is pierced from top to bottom with little silver hoops. The Voice star finished the look with a black mesh lattice dress by house of CB, black fishnet shoes by Christian Louboutin and diamond stud earrings by XIV Karats of Beverly Hills.

Want to try out the ‘do? Christina’s hair stylist, Chris Appleton, gives us the needed deets over on the celeb’s website. “I colored Xtina’s hair with a lavender for a soft lilac blonde. To get the look simply middle part your hair and flat iron for a clean, simple, striking look. I then braided the side of the hair to open up the face and added hoops as a detail for a punk inspired look.”

An easy technique for a look that’s got just enough edge. Sounds good to us!
