To complement her strapless Betsey Johnson dress for a “sophisticated, cutie-pie” style, Pantene Celebrity Stylist Danilo created a beautiful classic body set on Katy, a style that “she always loves so much.”

Step 1. Start with freshly washed, towel-dried hair for a clean base.

Step 2. Lightly mist hair with Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Heat Protection & Shine Spray to wet and condition. Prep roots for the voluminous style by spraying them with Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Root Lifter Spray Gel.

Step 3. Blow hair out and, once dried, rub a small dollop of Pantene Pro-V Restore Beautiful Lengths Smoothing Balm section-by-section.

Step 4. Apply heat with a medium-sized curling iron to set each section and spray Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Professional Level Style Shaping Hairspray over the set. Let it cool for five minutes.

Step 5. Release hair, brush it gently, and simply “let hair fall very full and wavy”.

Step 6. Part hair to the side with lift in the front, and leave remaining curls big and loose for the final finish.
