Start by using a smoothing cleanser and conditioner, then simply side-part your hair and allow to air dry (or diffuse); scrunching curls occasionally. Once dry, smooth and define your locks with shine serum and secure to one side with an excess of pins.
A two-textured look is an easy way to be on-trend and out the door in a matter of minutes. (We use Bumble & bumble Gellac to achieve a slick, shiny finish, like Alicia's.)
Frizz is in this season, but there remains a fine line between voluminous curls and toaster-in-the-tub. To keep your tresses in check, allow your hair to dry naturally — or sleep on it — then select random sections of hair and curl loosely with an iron, and finish with a light mist of hairspray. (We adore Neil George Perfect Hold Hairspray.) Once the styled sections have cooled, run your fingers through to blend the two textures.
A favorite of stars like Rachel McAdams, Selena Gomez & Nicole Richie, this forgiving spring style works with everything from your favorite boyfriend jeans to a formal evening gown.
