Celebrity hair stylist Mark Townsend shares his styling tips for Lea Michele’s naturally wavy tresses which she sported at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards yesterday.

“For the Teen Choice Awards, I wanted Lea to look like a classic, sun-kissed California girl. I loved her Atelier Versace dress and wanted to show how a cool, young woman wears couture, so I kept her hair pretty natural with loads of texture.”

“I started by applying a large amount of Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse to Lea’s damp hair, and rough dried her hair with my hands and with the diffuser attachment on my T3 Blowdryer.”

“After the hair was dry, I re-applied a large dollop of the Mousse and scrunched it in again, creating really great texture. Next, I took 4-inch sections of hair and sprayed Dove Style+Care Thermal Replenishment Spray on the hair, then loosely wrapped the hair around a 1 1/2-inch curling iron for a few seconds to give the hair a loose wave.”

“After the hair was waved, I sprayed Oribe Après Beach Spray all over while scrunching the hair with my hands to create more texture. To keep her hair in place without weighing it down, I finished with Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray all over.”
