Madonna's Hair - Celebrity Get the Look - iVillage Beauty Hair

Madonna is never the same woman twice. One minute she's a modern-day goddess chanting and wearing Mehendi, the next she's an urban cowgirl covered in rhinestones and fringe. Whatever her next look, you can be assured everyone will want it. Celebrity stylist Steven Ianiello helps capture Madonna's latest glowing and glamorous style, which is perfect for anyone with at least shoulder-length hair.

STEP 1 After washing your hair with a moisturizing shampoo, lightly towel dry to remove excess moisture. Apply a quarter-size amount of leave-in volumizing conditioner and work through to the ends.

STEP 2 To dry the hair, begin at the back of the head with a 1- to 2-inch section of hair closest to the nape of the neck. Using a 3-inch brush, pick up the hair at the scalp and apply heat while pulling it straight down. When you get to the ends, just let the hair fall off the brush. The goal here is a very straight look. Continue this process working in sections up the back of the head until you reach the crown. Repeat for the sides. Always work from the bottom up.

STEP 3 When you get to the front section of the hair, use the same drying process as step two, but this time instead of pulling the hair straight down with the brush, raise it to the ceiling, to create lift.

STEP 4 To begin curling, you will need a curling iron with a 3½-inch barrel. Divide the back of the head into two sections with a part running down the middle. Secure the two sides with clips, but leave about an inch of hair hanging down on either side.

STEP 5 Take one of these sections and spray with light hairspray. Apply the curling iron to the middle of the hair shaft and drag it to the very end, then roll the hair vertically in a clockwise direction about halfway up the length of the hair. Repeat this process on the other side, except this time roll the hair in a counterclockwise direction. You will want to repeat this alternating clockwise-counterclockwise curling process in the back of the head making sure only the lower half of the hair goes under the iron. Repeat this process on the sides of the hair.

STEP 6 When you curl the front pieces, don't bring the iron quite so high on the hair shaft and make sure to curl each side in different directions.

STEP 7 After the entire head has been curled, lightly comb through the curls with a wide-tooth comb, then work through the curls with your fingers. To give the style holding power, give it another spritz of light hairspray.
