Loose, Old-Hollywood curls
After washing and conditioning strands, distribute a dime-size drop of styling lotion from roots to ends to pre-set hair and lock in texture. Next, flip your head over and blow-dry strands using a large paddle brush, combing from the nape of your neck up towards ends. "This will help create natural volume at the roots," says Hathaway's stylist Kevin Mancuso. When hair is about 80 percent dry, flip your head back and finish drying with a medium round brush, spinning it at the ends for a smooth, polished wave. Create a side part, then use a medium barrel curling iron to shape only the bottom sections of hair (below eye level). Mist strands with a lightweight hairspray to keep the style in place.
"The more moisturized your hair is, the less product you'll need," Mancuso says. "Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner so you can skip extra creams and serums that can weigh curls down."
