Cameron Diaz Makes Zero-Product Hair Look Amazing
As a person whose hair requires a minimum of three products on a low-maintenance day, the idea of not putting anything on my frizz-prone strands sounds insane. But not to Cameron Diaz.
This week at the Barcelona premiere of her new comedy, Sex Tape, the actress managed to pull off a style completely sans product. In the summer. On the red carpet. What magic is this?
Well, celebrity stylist Ted Gibson’s blowdryer skills were certainly part of it. “There is nothing better than working with a client that knows what she wants,” says Gibson, who styled Diaz for the red carpet. “Cameron is so effortlessly sexy, and this natural style was so much fun to do on her.”
Here’s how he created her soft waves: “The key to achieving this look is to use little to no product. I didn’t use any for Cameron’s look. First, I started with damp hair and blow dried on a cool setting with no brush to give that natural feel to the hair and retain Cameron’s natural wave. I simply blew it drying using my fingers.” Gibson used a Turbo Power 3200 Twin Turbo Hair Dryer. (Pro tip: a real-deal powerful hair dryer is essential to a good blowout.)
“Next, I parted her hair in a deep side part, sweeping her hair down across her forehead. I finished by brushing her hair while using my fingers to set her beachy wave.”
Doesn't he make it sound easy? I might even try it out myself — on the next low-humidity day.
