For the recent American Music Awards, celebrity stylist Helen Jeffers created long, loose curls for "Glee's" Jenna Ushkowitz. The final result was effortlessly gorgeous. Here, Jeffers gives the how-to for creating the look.
1. "I began by blow drying Jenna's hair. I sectioned off the hair into three sections. The first section began at the bangs and ending at the base of the neck. The two other sections were on each side from crown to below the ears. Each section was about half an inch deep and was sprayed with a generous application of Bumble and Bumble Tonic Lotion and Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray from root to tip. I used the high heat setting on the hairdryer and a medium sized boar bristle round brush, paying particular attention to the roots to give them volume."
2. "After blowdrying each section, I set and pinned it, until the entire head was done."
3. "I removed the pins section by section, spraying each one with White Sands Liquid Texture Firm Hold Thermal Styling Spray and wrapping it from tip to root in a large barrel heated iron. This seals in the set and give texture and long lasting hold."
4. "I loosened up the curls, running my fingers from root to tip and styled them around Jenna's shoulders. I finished off the style with a generous application of White Sands Stuck Up Mega Hold Hairspray. This flake free product, repels moisture and gives the curls luster and shine."
