How to get Leona Lewis’s long hairstyle with thick curls and waves
To get this celebrity hairstyle, start by washing and towel drying your hair. Create an up and back direction to use as a foundation for the first wave. Comb the lighter side of the part back and away from the forehead. Using a medium round boar bristle brush ( a must have for many hairstyles!), start to blow-dry sections the same size of the brush or smaller if your hair is thicker like Leona Lewis. Allow each section to cool completely while still on the brush. Maintain your original part pattern as you go. After the hair is completely dry, take a half inch curling iron, using one inch square sections of your hair. Using the direction set by the part pattern spray each section with a finishing spray and wrap around the iron, pressing and releasing to ensure each wave is perfectly formed. Separate each wave with a hair polish.
