Is it just me, or do Hollywood's finest always get super playful with their style at the Teen Choice Awards? I mean, did you see host Demi Lovato's peacock dress? Or how about Justin Bieber's metaltastic armbands? Love! The vibe in Los Angeles was fun last night, and I'm about all it. Just like I'm about Lea Michele and her entire look for the big event.
The Glee star stepped out on the pink carpet rocking a beautiful silver sparkly Versace dress with a neckline to die for. But you know what my fave part of the whole look was? Her hair! Holy beach waves! The hairstyle was the absolute perfect complement for her dressier ensemble, and it's even more essential (and easy!) for summer.
Want to get the look yourself? Read on to find out how.
Loose beach waves are super, super simple and don't take long at all. All you need is a great styling cream and some hairspray. My go-to cream is from DevaCurl.
Ready to get down to it? Start by applying about a quarter-sized amount of your styling cream to towel-dried hair. Next, divide your hair into six even sections and twist. Using a hairdryer with a defusing attachment, blowdry each of the twisted sections. When dry, simply un-twist the sections and shake out the look for beachy looking waves and spray it all with hairspray for extra hold.
Not curly enough for ya? Not a problem. Grab a curling iron and throw in a couple curls. Shake it out, and you'll be Lea Michele fabulous in no time. Now, if I could just get my hands on a Versace dress.
