Connie Britton: how to get her perfect glossy waves

A hairstyle icon, Connie Britton even has a Twitter account for her glossy locks. We've put together a tutorial, so that you can get her signature waves...

Connie's Captivating Curls

Step one

Use a curl-defining shampoo and conditioner to give your style the best start. When your hair is still damp after washing, apply a volumizing spray or mousse for volume and hold.

Step two

Blow-dry your hair using a round barrel brush with soft bristles, lifting your hair at the roots to get extra volume. The soft bristles will minimize breakages, which, as we all know, lead to frizz and flyaways.

Step three

Apply heat protectant spray or serum to your palms, rub your hands together, then softly smooth down your hair from root to tip, finishing by holding the ends in your fingers to concentrate the product. Wash your hands afterwards.

Step four

Define your part before you start curling. Then, using a large-barelled curling iron, curl sections of about 2", starting at the back and working your way to the front. When you get to the very front sections, curl them away from your face to create that flattering wave that Connie always has.

Step five

Brush through the curls very lightly with your fingertips to loosen them, and finish with hairspray.

What does Connie say?

Connie is famous for being honest about her hair, and explaining that the key to her glossy locks might be down to the fact that she doesn't wash it very often. This might sound strange, but there's truth to it. Overwashing can strip your hair of its natural oils, which causes your scalp to produce even more, making your hair greasy. The more you wash your hair, the quicker it will try to produce oil to compensate. A bit of natural oil gives a lovely shine, but too much just makes it greasy. Try to wash your hair every 3 days, or 2 days at most.
