THE LOOK Veronica Lake curls HOW-TO For romantic ringlets with staying power, stylist Francky L'Official suggests applying a quarter-size amount of medium-hold gel and distributing it through damp hair. Blow-dry until hair is 75 percent dry. Section off in small pieces and set hair in one-inch steam curlers, rolling from the ends of the hair to the scalp. Spritz with a medium hold hair spray and let sit for 15 minutes. Remove curlers and use fingers to manipulate curls to achieve your desired look. INSIDER TRICK Spritz each curler with hairspray before putting in hair for extra hold. BUY ONLINE NOW ARTec TextureLine Hold Texture Spray, $10.49; sleekhair.com.
