Get the Look: Paula Abdul's Voluminous Waves


Matrix Artistic Educator Victor Mendoza recently worked with Paula Abdul for the T.J. Martell Foundation's Spirit Of Excellence Awards on Tuesday, Sept. 1st in Beverly Hills, CA. Says Mendoza, "Paula requested her hair to look really natural, with a mild wave." Below, Mendoza shares his tips for recreating the naturally gorgeous style.

Get the Look:
1. Says Mendoza, "I prepped the hair with Style Link Smooth Setter, which delivers a satin finish but does not weigh down hair.

2. "Next, I used a round brush to blow dry hair.

3. "Then, using a curling iron (1 ¼ inches), I split the hair into horizontal sections.

4. "I sprayed each section with Style Link Heat Buffer, which is an additional way to protect hair from heat, and wrapped each section around the curling iron. My tip is to leave the ends out in order to create a more natural result.

5. "When done curling each section, I finished off the look with Style Link Volume Fixer to lock in the full volume and body of the hair.

6. "After letting the hair completely cool down, I brushed through the curls using a smoothing brush."
