Big, thick hair in giant curls is often what makes us think of va-va-voom hairstyles. But this sleek and modern look seen on Jessica Alba at the 40th Annual People’s Choice Awards is just as sexy as any big-wave hairstyle. Not to mention, it’s naturally beautiful, easy to replicate, and versatile enough for just about any occasion.
Whether you’re strutting the red carpet, off to a work event, or looking for a sultry date night ‘do, this sophisticated hairstyle is both simple and elegant. We spoke with David Goodwin, Creative Director for Sassoon Salon in Scottsdale for some tips on how to get this lusty Jessica Alba hair look for our locks at home.
Sultry Sleek Locks: A Jessica Alba Hair Tutorial
1. Start with clean, towel dried hair. Apply a dime-sized amount of Sebastian Professional Taming Elixir which is a weightless, smoothing creme serum. It’s a great frizz tamer that uses avocado oil to create touchable, supple hair. Comb the product through evenly from roots to ends.
2. Part the hair (either center or side parting will work) and begin blow drying. Make sure to use a flat brush and blow dry by pointing the dryer nozzle downward to create a smooth finish and prevent the hair cuticle from lifting. Also, make sure hair is completely dry to prevent unwanted frizz. This look is all about being straight and sleek!
3. Lightly spray Sebastian Professional Trilliant (a great heat protectant that adds shine) over the hair and gently comb for even product distribution.
4. Next, start flat ironing the hair from roots to ends, using small sections and directing the hair away from the face.
Once finished, lightly brush the hair into place. Finish with Sebastian Professional Shine Define Hairspray. It adds more shine while providing a flexible hold for a long-lasting, sleek look.
