I can't get enough of Glee's Lea Michele lately and it seems like the rest of the world can't either. Last night at the Teen Choice Awards, the bombshell looked more than fabulous in a short, sequin Naeem Khan dress paired with nude Fendi wedges and a Dior clutch, but what really caught my attention was her sex kitten hair. The nominee's bodacious curls were done by Mark Townsend who gave me the step-by-step. “Lea and I often pull inspiration for her looks from a variety of fashion, beauty and Hollywood imagery. But for the Teen Choice Awards, Lea was the inspiration," commented Townsend. "She’s young, modern, smart and sexy and her look really reflected that sensibility. It was a bold choice – we’ve never done this kind of super volume before, but it looked gorgeous."
To get Lea's look, start by evenly applying a volumizing mousse like Dove Body & Lift Volumizing Mousse and blow drying with a round brush. Once dry..,. divide your hair into five sections (one top, two sides and two back) and curl one three-inch section at a time with a double barrel curling iron. Try Baybliss Pro Double Curling Tong.
Once curled, warm up a frizz control cream in between the palms of your hands and rake it through your locks with your fingers. I like Dove Frizz Control Therapy Taming Cream. This will make your curls shiny and give them a beachy texture. Finally, flip your head upside down and hit it with a finishing spray.
