Smooth but side-parted roots explode into a flurry of tight curls through Alicia Keys shoulder-touching hairstyle.
Step 1: Mix a quarter-size amount each of leave-in conditioner and curl-enhancing balm and apply onto damp hair. Blow dry two-inch sections at a time using a large round brush to lift slightly at the root for volume.
Step 2: Spritz the lower part of a 3/4-inch section with styling spray and wrap it tightly around a small curling iron. Hold for a few seconds to set, release and repeat in the same curl direction until all hair is done.
Step 3: Avoiding the top, run your fingers through your hair to break up the curls and coax fullness.
