Alicia Bridgewater, 36
Alicia usually wears her hair straight or in long braids. Ken wanted to show her the gorgeous potential of her natural curls. When her hair was damp, he coated it with a softening mixture of silicone shine serum and deep conditioner. Once it had air-dried, he used a half-inch curling iron to smooth Alicia's curls into shiny, springy spirals that frame her stunning eyes. Leanne continued the eye-opening effect with a navy eyeliner smudged onto Alicia's upper lids. A sheer berry lipstick topped with clear gloss is glamorous but not fussy.
Alicia says: "I was hesitant to even try this curly style, but Ken made me feel comfortable about experimenting with a new look."
