If you have ombré highlights (or even just natural variations in tone) like Keke Palmer, styling your hair in big, soft curls is a great way to show them off. At last night's BET Awards, Keke's multitonal strands looked even better placed in California-cool-style waves. The look is surprisingly easy to achieve. Celebrity stylist Dean Banowetz explains that using a rotating styling tool like the InStyler ($119) is the perfect way to achieve the effect. Find out his tips when you read more.
- Wrap one-inch sections of clean, dry hair around the barrel of the InStyler, focusing on creating a spiral shape. Keep the apparatus closed for several seconds, allowing the curl to drop freely from the unit. Note: if you don't have this particular styling tool, you can always blow-dry the hair with a round brush and hair dryer and finish by curling the hair with a large-barrel iron.
- Next, loosen up the waves by gently raking your fingers through the hair.
- To set, spritz on a light-hold hair spray.
