‘He’s Just Not That Into You’ star Drew Barrymore has always had beautiful hair, but recently we’ve seen her wearing smooth and sleek strands with a slight curl or bend at the ends. This type of hairstyle gives you the best of both worlds. You can have a gorgeous curl, but still maintain a sleek style as if you had flat ironed your hair. Here’s how Drew Barrymore gets this style:
Step 1: PREPARE
Start this style with clean, towel-dried hair. Spray in a leave-in conditioner like KMS California Silk Sheen Leave-In Conditioner that will help to smooth hair and tame frizzies. Comb through hair with a wide-tooth comb and then run a smoothing serum through strands. One to try is Artec Textureline Smoothing Serum, which is great for blow drying hair into smooth styles. Then blow dry hair in sections using a round brush and pointing the nozzle downward on the hair shaft for extra smoothness. Blast each section with the cool shot button on your blow dryer to cool and seal that hair which will lock in the style and shine. After you have finished blow drying all of your hair it is time to style.
Step 2: STYLE
Style only the ends of strands using a large barrel curling iron like the BabyLiss Pro Ceramic Spring Curling Iron of at least 1 ½ inches. Lightly spray hairspray on individual strands before curling them. Try a hairspray like Matrix Sleek Look Hair Spray which is specifically for smoothing hair and is water resistant, which means frizz resistant. Curl 2” strands, working your way through all of your hair. Remember to just curl the very ends of your hair.
Step 3: FINISH
This style doesn’t need much finishing at all. If you did a great job with your blow dry then you should have smooth strands on top and curled ends at the bottom thanks to your handy work with the curling iron. You can then choose to spray on a shine spray for an even sleeker look if you wish. We like Got2B Dazzling Shine Spray for everyday shine. Wear this look everyday for a more glamorous version of your everyday look.
