Celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa created Lea Michele's incredible sleeked hair for the 69th Annual Emmys, and we have her instructions on how to recreate it for your clients!

  1. Start by creating a clean center part and apply Aveda's Phomollient Styling Foam to the roots and Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair to the ends. Loosely blow dry until the hair is 80% dry and then polish the ends with a brush.
  2. Section the hair with the Darby Clip, starting at the bottom working your way up. Curl 2" sections of your hair with The Beachwaver Pro 1.25”.

  1. Polish the front sections with the Coast Pro styling iron and smooth with Aveda’s Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade.  Then take the front from the left and the right and pull it into a hidden ponytail to secure the front down.
  2. To create gorgeous, polished waves, spray Aveda's Air Control Light Hold Hair Spray directly onto your brush and brush all of the waves together. 

Sarah’s Pro Tip: after spraying flyaways with Aveda's Air Control™, roll the can over to lock them down!
