Get Jessica Alba’s Hair at 2012 MET Ball

Retro waves continue to dominate the red carpet at the 2012 Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala last night. One of my favorites is Jessica Alba, who paired an asymmetrical look with vampy lips and neutral eyes. Below is the scoop from Jessica’s hairstylist, Renato Campora, on how you can recreate the look at home!

How To

Step 1. On wet hair, Renato applied Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel throughout and then formed a strong side part.

Step 2. He dried the hair with a round brush to create volume and shine.

Step 3. Next, he used a one inch curling iron to create the body and shape of the look.

Step 4. Renato then brushed through the curls, to build waves starting from the side-part.

Step 5. He applied a small amount of Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Cream to define the waves of the hair and add a lasting shine.

Step 6. To finish the look, Renato sprayed Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray.
