L.A. Looks Absolute Curls

Go for beachy waves with L.A. Looks Absolute Curls for the Vanessa Hudgens musical festival look. To achieve the style, work a quarter-sized amount of lightweight curl-boosting styling cream like L.A. Looks Absolute Curls evenly into towel-dried hair from root to tip, using your fingertips to create the curls. Let hair air dry or blow-dry with a diffuser. Finish with a small amount of La Bella Super Shine Polishing Serum to seal out humidity and add shine. The combination of the two will give you flexible hold and frizz control in hot temperatures, leaving you with a long lasting, natural looking finish.
