For finished curls, blow dry hair 80% of the way with a diffuser. Then, let hair air-dry and apply a light holding cream to set the style.

Shailene’s Waves


While we may have finally gotten used to Shailene Woodley’s short snip and blonde hair (a change from our initial introduction to The Secret Life Of The American Teenager long, light-brunette mane), there’s a new version of the actress’s mane in town. For her recent premiere of Allegiant, Shailene hit the red carpet with a shoulder-length, wavy bob in a deep, dark shade. Shares hairstylist Keith Carpenter, who styled her for the event, “Shailene really wanted her look to be very natural and undone with slight direction.”

Here’s how the mane pro achieved her look…

>>“Getting Shailene ready for her red carpet premiere for Allegiant, I used the Matrix Total Results Rock it Texture Sea Salt Spray and allowed her hair to dry naturally.”

>>“Once roughly dried, I applied the Matrix StyleLink Texture Builder, and used a 1-1/2 inch flat iron to curl hair in a criss-cross style, to achieve a more natural wave and movement.”

>>“To finish the look and achieve a casual, tousled effect, I used the Matrix Oil Wonders Volume Rose Finishing Spray.”
