During Fashion’s Night Out, Lea Michele had waves so shiny they almost made her hard to see. It might seem like the sort of look that’s only possible for a celebrity, but Lea’s stylist, Mark Townsend, broke down how you can create these waves on your own for our friends at BellaSugar.
Step 1: Prep“I started by applying a few drops of Dove Nourishing Oil Care Serum to her damp hair,” Townsend says. “Next, I added a large dollop of Dove Body and Lift Mousse and then rough dried her hair using my fingers instead of a brush.”
Step 2: Curl
When Lea’s hair was dry, Townsend began wrapping three- to five-inch sections of hair around a one-inch barrel curling iron. “It’s best to use random chunks of hair,” he says, “so each section is a different size.” Townsend curled the sections in opposing directions, some toward the face and some away, to create loose waves instead of ringlets.
Step 3: Add texture
“After I waved all her hair,” Townsend says, “I sprayed Suave Dry Shampoo all over and scrunched with my fingers.”
Step 4: Finish with hairspray
Just before Lea left, Townsend spritzed Lea’s style with high-hold hair spray to keep her volume and texture in place all night.
