“It starts with the ground work,” Cleveland told Fox News Lifestyle from Underwood, effortlessly curly tresses, which suggests that the fans first, the hair wash with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner such as Sebastian Volupt is set.
Next, spray the hair with a volumizing mist – Cleveland loves Mark Woolly the Electric Volume Liquid Mist to separate the hair into four sections, which she describes as “ear-to-ear, then the middle part right back to the neck.”
Then the blow-dry of magic begins. The hair of the industry pro recommends drying each section with a vented, medium-barrel round brush for fullness and bounce. After the hair is fully dried, spray the head with hairspray (like Kenra #14) heat and a 1.5-inch curling wand.
