We loved Denise Laurel’s showstopping performance of Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love” at the finale of Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2—but you know what we love even more? Her vavavoom hair and sultry, powerful makeup. Her complete Beyonce transformation was care of the show’s talented prosthetics, makeup, and hair team, and while it took hours and a fully stocked beauty arsenal for them to turn her into Queen Bey, you can actually look as fab and larger than life as Denise by mastering one thing: The art of big, messy waves.
Denise wears a light-colored wig and extensions to really look like Beyonce….
But your natural hair works just as well, see how Miss Laurel sports big waves even sans the Beyonce persona.
Repeat after me: Though shall not aim for tight curls. Loose waves are oh-so-sexy because they’re exactly that, loose and not even a bit uptight. You won’t be able to exude a hip, larger than life vibe if you stick to the old-fashioned way of curling your hair.
Use large rollers, a large barrel iron, or a roller brush and blowdryer combo to nail large waves. Make the curling process easy by spraying volumizer on damp hair and blowdrying your hair upside down. Curl your hair from middle to ends then finish off with spray gel and another round of blowdrying.
Add panache to your holiday ensembles with this ‘do that brings your beautiful face front and center.
