Jennifer Lopez at the Grammys

Have you got a glam night out on the cards this weekend? Why not look to the red carpet for a little inspiration? Jennifer Lopez graced the Grammys with one va va voom hair do, so we asked Ben Cooke, Ambassador for Herbal Essences how to recreate Jen’s full volume look.

The key to this style is volume.  Always start with the right base – I suggest using a lightweight shampoo and conditioner like Herbal Essences Uplifting Volume the ingredients are at just the right level as to not weigh the hair down allowing the style staying full and bouncy all night long.

To enhance the curls run through a small amount of styling mousse when hair is damp to provide a flexible hold for the curls.  Part hair in the centre and blow dry hair in sections pointing the nozzle from underneath to add volume.

Once hair is dry take sections about 2-3” wide, use large tongs and curl the hair away from the face leaving about 3” from the top of your head. Then gently release the tongs and gently pin that section. This allows the curl to cool and gives you more space to curl the rest of your hair. 

Once all sections have been curled, start from the first and unpin. Next brush through with a good quality paddle brush to separate and create the soft sexy waves. Finally use a soft hold hairspray to keep the curls in place and prevent any unwanted wisps appearing.
