SOFT BOUNCE
For picture-perfect curls, frizz is the enemy. On the set, cranking up the AC helps cut humidity, but it’s best if hair is well hydrated (dry hair frizzes as it absorbs moisture from the air). Bumble and Bumble hairstylist Dennis Lanni applies a leave-in conditioner to models' dry hair before using a curling iron. Then he wraps sections of hair in a figure-eight shape around tissue before letting the coils cool and set. “The big figure eight stretches the curl so it doesn’t form into a tight ringlet,” says Lanni. For naturally curly hair, he suggests applying a moisturizing product on damp strands and letting hair air-dry. Mancuso suggests blow-drying with a diffuser. “If you’re going to use an iron, do so lightly to achieve a looser, more modern curl,” he says.

PRO TOOLS
The oldest trick in the book: a wind machine. “I put a fan on very low to make just a few pieces take flight,” says Mancuso. In real life, personal fans won’t cut it — you’re better off perfecting a well-timed hair toss to attract attention.
