L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Lea Michele has a red carpet hairstyle repertoire that never ceases to amaze. Recently, the Glee star attended the 15th Annual Hollywood Bowl Opening Night Concert with an impressively shiny, wavy mane. We're happy to note that Lea didn't just go for yet another replica of Old Hollywood's favorite hairstyle (though, as Blake Lively proves, this is never a bad thing), instead choosing an understated, modern version of the classic side-swept 'do.
To get the look at home, just follow the tutorial below...
To get shiny, healthy-looking hair, your strands need plenty of moisture. So, you should start by applying a hydrating conditioner after shampooing your hair. Frequent masks are also a good idea as they replenish lost nutrients and moisture, helping to revive parched locks.
Apply a curling mousse to damp, towel-dried hair then get most of it dry by rough-drying or using a paddle brush with your hairdryer. Once the hair is roughly 60% dry, switch to a round brush. Wrap a section of hair all the way around it, then glide the brush through to the ends as the section dries. When the hair falls off the brush, gather it loosely in the palm of your hand and spray it quickly with hairspray then pin it up to cool. Repeat this step until all of your hair is dry then let the curls down.
Part your hair on one side then brush it through to give you more of a unified wave. On the side with less hair, you can French-braid or just pin the hair at the nape of your neck to help keep the bulk of your tresses on the other side.
Finger-comb the waves to make them appear a little more natural then spray your whole style liberally with finishing spray to add shine and give you extra hold.
