The Sundance Film Festival is in full effect, as were Eliza Dushku's tousled, natural curls, styled courtesy of Living Proof, a humidity-resistant line created by a MIT professor. While I love the classy, structured retro waves that were hot at this year's Golden Globes, I'm liking Dushku's more everyday version. And I've got the how-to on creating these shiny, natural curls at home:
- Depending on the length of your hair, apply 10-15 sprays of No Frizz Wave Shaping Spray ($24) and 10-15 sprays of No Frizz Straight Making Spray ($24). Distribute evenly by combing through the hair. The theory behind using a seemingly contradictory set of products (straightening and waving) is that the Wave Shaping Spray will help hold the curl, and the Straight Making Spray will help prolong the blow-dry.
- Blow-dry hair with a large round brush, rolling it around the brush to give it body. Focus on heating around the rolled hair and roots for maximum results.
- Finish by curling the ends for a more defined look. Pretty easy, and modern, too.
If you're as much of a Buffy fan as I am, you shouldn't miss Dushku in the preview of Dollhouse, Joss Whedon's new show. I know I'll be watching, if only because I just love saying Dushku over and over again. Just rolls off the tongue.
