Lea Michele’s Pretty + Polished Waves
Celeb stylist Sarah Potempa and her client-turned-BFF Lea Michele are seriously #GlamTeamGoals. Whether they’re vacaying together in Hawaii or getting red carpet ready, Sarah is always creating the perfect look for every occasion using The Beachwaver® Pro (get yours here!)—just like these pretty + polished waves for the 2017 Emmy Awards. Get the steps below and recreate Lea’s gorgeous look!
Start with damp hair. Create a clean center part, then apply Aveda 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 polish the ends with a brush.
Section the hair with The Beachwaver Co.™ Darby Clips, starting at the bottom and working your way up. Curl 2-inch sections with the Beachwaver® Pro.
Polish the front section with the Beachwaver® Coast Pro styling iron and smooth the hair with Aveda Brilliant™ Anti-Humectant Pomade. Take pieces from the front, the left and right and pull them into a hidden ponytail to secure the front down.
To create red carpet-ready waves, spray Aveda Air Control™ Light Hold Hair Spray directly onto the brush and brush the waves together.
Pro Tip: Use the can of hairspray to tame flyaways and lock down the style.
