Recreating celebrity looks is a part of our everyday lives as hairdressers. Trending right now is Jessica Alba’s glamorous side swept curls seen on the cover of the latest issue of InStyle magazine. In this week’s blog post, stylist Isabel Vera breaks it down step by step how to get this classy hairstyle.

When creating a look like this, the preparation is a key element. To achieve the texture, lovely volume and defined silhouette, we will use Label.m products throughout the process. When the hair is wet, you would start by applying volume mouse and heat protector all over the hair, starting from roots to the ends. Thereafter dry hair completely using a blowdryer and grooming brush to create the unique softness of this hairstyle. When the hair is completely dry and brushed through, the next step would be to use a curling iron of smaller size to create the glamorous and tight curls we want for this look. Once a section is curled, you pin it up and let it cool off. By doing this, the curls get tighter and also last longer.

When all pinned curls have cooled off, you would take the pins out, apply texturizing spray and then use your fingers to pull back and open up the curls for a gorgeous and wild look. Comb through the hair and pull it aside using the grooming brush to keep a polished, clean and tight look. Secure with bobby pins to make sure the style stays in place all day long. Comb your bangs and the hair on top of your head softly to the side. And voilà!
