The Secret To Idina Menzel’s Perfectly Nonchalant Beachy Waves You Need To Know Now

idina-menzel-super-bowlMane man Ted Gibson created Idina Menzel’s lustrously chic, center-parted waves for her Super Bowl musical moment and I love his trick to keeping the ends straight. Check out his step-by-step to creating this look below, in his words.

“I started off with freshly shampooed and conditioned hair. At the root I used Kerastase Volumfique mousse for volume, on the mid shaft and ends I applied Kerastase’s Volumfique spray, then on top of that I used Kerastase’s Densimorphose mousse. This combination gives hair amazing body, texture and lift.

Next, I dried her hair by rough drying with my fingers at first and finished with my dual bristle round brush to smooth out the cuticle.

Once her hair was dry, I parted her hair down the middle for that classic girl-next-door-look. I used a 1 ¼” curling iron and taking 1” sections, wrapped it around the base of the iron leaving the ends out. This trick is the difference between your mother’s curls and the effortless wave that is EVERYTHING right now. I finished the wave by flat ironing the ends. Another key step to this look is to finger through the waves with your hands. This softens the wave and helps to blend them together.

I sprayed her hair with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to secure the look.”

What do you think of Idina Menzel’s look last night? I loved that she let it go, follicularly speaking. Her hair looked relaxed and gorgeous.
