The bangs and beachy waves combo is one Lea Michele effortlessly mastered, especially this week at a FOX Upfront event in New York City. And it’s a look her hairstylist Sarah Potempa chose carefully. “With Lea’s bangs, this style helps to add volume and texture, and the bouncy waves draw attention to her eyes,” Potempa told InStyle.com. To create the look, Potempa separated the Glee star’s strands into two sections, split each into three horizontal rows, and used her self-rotating Beachwaver ($199; sarahpotempa.com) to create the soft waves. For the finishing touch, she adds: “Remember to wait until both sides have cooled before running fingers through your hair. With this kind of pattern, it needs to stay in that shape until your hair cools.”

And we’ve just released footage of the steamy shoot! Go behind-the-scenes of the Smash star’s boxing ring-side photos, and see the actress knock out some seriously sultry poses (Marilyn would be proud). “To me, Marilyn Monroe was sexiest when she wasn’t aware of it—it just came from within,” said McPhee, who portrays the blonde bombshell on the NBC hit show. Watch the exclusive video above, and see who else made our Sexy Dozen list in the June issue, on newsstands Friday.
