Unfortunately, I can’t help you easily copy Naya Rivera’s amazing abs (those require hours of gym time and probably some diet changes). I can, however, give you the steps to recreating her beautiful, long, loose curls. John Frieda stylist, Clyde Haygood, gave the full scoop on how he got Naya’s hair to look that good.

Step 1 – Prep 

Clyde applied Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula ($9.99 at folica.com) to Naya’s wet hair before blow-drying. “We wanted sleek, defined waves. We knew this serum would help give us the sleek, controlled style we were aiming to achieve and keep her hair frizz-free all night long.” 

Step 2 – Style

Next, Clyde used a curling iron with a 1 ½ inch barrel. After wrapping each section around the iron, he pinned each curl with a duckbill clip and sprayed Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray ($5.95 at folica.com) to set.  

Step 3 – Perfect

Once the curls cooled, Clyde carefully brushed hair out and spritzed Frizz-Ease 100% Shine Glossing Mist ($5.99 at ulta.com) throughout for definition and added shine. “To replicate the look and feel of the leather outfit, we saturated Naya’s hair with as much of the shine spray as possible for that silky and smooth finish.”
