So how can you get this Jessica Alba look?

Celebrity Hairstylist Peter Lamas, who once styled the gorgeous locks of Hollywood sirens such as Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, knows the value of a timeless, chic look.

“For updos, always start by working in a volumizing mousse into towel-dried locks,” suggests Lamas. Peter Lamas Volumize Me incorporates Vitamin-Rich Sea Algae to condition, strengthen and add luster; while Sea Silk smoothes hair follicle and Rice Protein builds body and fullness.

image006 “It's a classic Catch 22 – blow dryers, curling and straightening irons, heated rollers can make your hair look great, but they also take a terrible toll,” says Lamas. He suggests spraying Hold Me onto dry hair, section by section, before using heat-activated styling tools. “Our specially formulated, non-sticky spray is a “smart” holding spray that incorporates natural hair smoothers and volumizers.”
