Madonna Hair: Advice From her Hair Stylist Andy LeCompte

Get Madonna's Wavy Hairstyle, Straight From Her Stylist

Madonna is in the last weeks of her sold-out Sticky and Sweet tour, and after seeing her dance around the stage, all I have to say is, 50 seems like a lot of fun — and it looks pretty good, too. M's makeup artist, Gina Brooke, showed us how to get the tour makeup look earlier this fall, and now hair stylist Andy LeCompte shares the scoop on Madonna's sexy, wavy hair.

Work with your natural texture. "Every time we set a look for tour, I always try to do something that is wavy," LeCompte explains. "Madonna has naturally wavy hair, so I consider sweat, moisture, and humidity — all of the elements in a live show."

For maximum bounce, keep your products simple. "In the show, I avoid using sticky products and sprays that weight the hair down. The only product I use is Sunsilk Waves of Envy Sea Mist ($3.99). It's a salt water and silicone-based product that I mist in Madonna's hair to give it a bit more texture."

Use the right tool. Skip the curling iron and use a tool specifically designed to make waves. LeCompte swears by the Revlon 3-Barrel Jumbo Waver ($18.83), which creates S-shaped waves. "I also used it on Britney for the 'Human Nature' video to give her Madonna-like waves," he adds.

Well, all I can say is that I think she looks great, and her smarts and confidence make her as sexy as ever. Just my two cents.

I agree with cmd0610.I completely hated Sunsilk's Waves of Envy,it did absolutely nothing for me.Bb's Surf Spray is 10x better,and worth the $25, IMO.Also, Frederic Fekkai's Beach Waves is amazing,but I guess it's discontinued now =(

I am not a huge fan of the hair style myself (or Madonna). While I am usually on the side of high-end hair products delivering better results than drugstore brands, I'm sure there are some less expensive brands that do just as good a job as anything. It's nice to see that there are some "celebrity" hair stylists that aren't too snobby to snub a product that didn't cost enough to feed and clothe a child in a third world country for a year. I myself after being partial to more expensive beauty products have found quite a few drugstore products (on the advise of my MD) that are just as effective if not more so than the ones I had been paying sometimes 5X over the price for.

Madonna has never been pretty to me... and she works out too much. One of the rumors as to why her marriage broke. "She worked out all day and is too tired to do anything else." Take a break already. I don't hate her, but she needs to tone it down. I guess she is in high competition with women 30 years younger, but still...

There are drag queens out there that are much prettier than Madonna.

She has ridiculously muscled thighs- I think, if I was a guy, I'd seriously have random nightmares about dating her and having her suddenly take me up into a leg hold,wrapping those guns around me, and crushing me to death with those giant man-beast thighs!I like her wavy hair, but not how her black roots show that 'look' is trashy and went 'out' in the late 80's. I also don't care AT ALL for her nasty, oversexualized and brash, disrespectful way of dress and attitude; she truly does come off as a 50 yr. old woman still trying to stick it to Daddy, by being rebellious and thinking and behaving in a sexualized manner. My friend has naturally curly long hair, it is very soft so it tends to look frizzy instead of wavy but a small, hand-held, hard plastic spray bottle she got for $1.37 at WalMart filled with very warm tap water 3/4's of the way full, with 3 big tablespoons of Sea Salt poured in along with 4 eyeballed-tablespoons of shine serum from L'oreal(buy it at Ulta for $6 for 6oz.),all shook up- and sprayed on her still semi-damp hair after washing and conditioning(with ultra-sheer conditioner from BioSilk, also at Ulta,$12), her hair is the naturally curly hair is soft, curly and shiny just as it was meant to be. I helped her develop this 'method' when she was sick of her locks over the Summer; I can't style or cut hair to save my life but can pretty much tell intuitively what hair needs so far as health and shine. Guess that explains why I have, and like best, just wash, treat and go hair ;)

Sorry Bella, but 50 only looks like this if you work out at least 4 hours a day and are surgically enhanced. Madonna used to have soft, feminine curves, but now looks like an overdeveloped boy.

I've used the Sunsilk Waves of Envy and it sucks . . .B&b Surf Spray is worth the splurge. Although I suppose everyone's hair is different . . .but no one wants their hair weight down.

My hair is naturally wavy, so wavy, in fact, that I really don't need any help making it wavier!! I think it's not as coarse as Madonna's though, I wouldn't be able to use the same products as her, they'd weigh my hair down. I actually wish it was a little straighter.

I think she looks horrible, who would want that hair? And I agree, aimeeb, she looks like a man and scares me a little bit.

I dread that hairstyle. Every time I look @ it, I cringe.

I'm sorry but I think she looks so much like a man these days, nothing about her appeals to me.
