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.
