How To Create Tousled Curls

How-To: Eliza Dushku's Natural Waves

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
