To complement Madonna’s classic, yet clean look, Wella Professionals Celebrity Stylist Ambassador Andy Lecompte gave her soft, loose waves.


STEP 1: Hair was washed and conditioned with Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner.

STEP 2: Hair was gently towel dried, and then a few drops of hair oil were applied to prep hair for a smooth look.

STEP 3: Hair was blown-dry while being twisted away from the face to create natural movement and wave. Once dry, hair was twisted into two buns behind the ears to set the waves.

STEP 4: After 10-15 minutes, hair was released and a one-inch barrel curling iron was used to go through the hair’s natural windings, creating gorgeous, voluminous waves.

STEP 5: A dab more hair oil was added to the hair to create shine.

STEP 6: The look was finished by running a T3 Volumize Dome-Plated flatiron through the ends of the hair to give a looser look, and spraying finishing spray for flexible hold.
