Celebrity Stylist Dan Sharp Gives OK! the Deets On How to Create Celebrity Waves
This is the kind of Hollywood hair that I wish I had 24/7. I'd wake up, put on my makeup, flip my hair, and I'd be out the door with a good hair day every single day. News flash, Victoria. You've got to put a little work behind it.

Celebrities are forever flaunting these flawless waves that are the perfect balance between tightly wound curls and natural straight hair. What a happy medium to have, right? I'm all about recreating celebrity 'dos, and after getting my hair styled with the same type of iron that Liv Tyler's celebrity stylist uses, I had one! I was lucky enough to experience the kind of curls (loose luxurious ones) that the T3 Bodywaver creates.
Want to know how to get a 'do like Liv, too? Check out this hair how-to by her stylist Dan Sharp.
1. "With the new T3 Bodywaver, I part off her head into two sections (top and bottom from temple to crown). For more natural looking waves, I curl the underneath towards the face, and the top sections are curled back and away. For a more uniform curl, all sections are curled back and away."
Dan says that the amount of hair he sections off is related to the tool size. If he uses a tiny curling iron, the amount of hair he grabs will be smaller. With the Bodywaver tool, he grabs 2-inch sections.
2. "I hold the iron vertically with the tip facing upward and hold each section on the iron for 3-5 seconds. The release is very important with this iron, as the large barrel size creates a very large wave pattern. To release, I press and release my thumb to move the iron towards the end of the hair."
3. "Once I have a few inches of distance from the head, I rotate the iron in the direction of the curl, literally 'unwinding' the hair off of the iron. Once I have gotten to the ends of the section of hair, I press my thumb to release the section entirely."
