Steal the Look: Vampire Diaries


Canadian gal Nina Dobrev (who FLARE named Next Big Thing in our October bonus anniversary issue) stars in CTV’s Vampire Diaries series as Elena, a PYT trying to decide between two hunky vampire brothers. It may be a tough job, but she manages to do it all with picture-perfect locks that rival those of Bella Swan. The series’ hairstylist, Randa Squillacote, shared her trick to mastering Dobrev’s alluring look: Start with freshly washed hair and blow-dry with a large round brush. Spray sections with White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Hold Styling Spray to protect it from the heat and enhance volume and shine. Once it’s dry, flatiron sections of hair, starting at the crown and lifting straight up. Turn the iron slightly in the middle of each section to create soft waves. Finish by combing with your fingers and misting with hairspray. White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Hold Styling Spray, $25. Call (877) 720-8477.
