Get Cover-Worthy Hair

What catches your eye buying a magazine? I go Gaga (pun intended) for all things celebrity, but second to that, it's usually the hair. Cover hair is known for being super glossy and often flowy. Jada Pinkett Smith's hair on the August cover of Redbook ticks both boxes. [caption id="attachment_2933" align="aligncenter" width="359" caption="Jada Pinkett Smith on the cover or August Redbook"] Jada Pinkett Smith on the cover or August Redbook[/caption] To achieve Jada's smooth surface, celebrity hairstylist Marcia Hamilton (she's worked with Jada several times and other superstar athletes like Serena Williams and Gabby Reese) started by blow-drying Jada's hair with a large boar bristle round brush. We love the Goody So Smooth Boar Ceramic Round Brush.

Next, Hamilton prepped Smith's hair with a leave-in conditioner and a few drops of oil. We love this new 100% Argan Oil from John Masters Organic.

Afterward, she pinned each curl to the head. Once the entire head was curled, she misted with White Sands Infinity Hairspray and let the curls set for 10 minutes. We love the T3 Single Pass Twirl 1.25 Curling Iron, $99.

What do you think? Is it too much work? I want to hear from you! Leave a comment below. Images courtesy Janice McCafferty Communications; Goody; John Masters; T3.
