Calling all curly girls: Your beauty routine is getting a touch of Revenge. Last month, we announced that Ashley Madekwe teamed up with Joico and the brand’s artistic director Damien Carney for the “Drab to Fab” hair makeover web series, where she gave real girls style tips to match their recently made-over hair, and now we’re revealing the first installment exclusively on InStyle.com. To kick off the series, Carney and Madekwe gave their model buoyant ringlets with a retro edge. Although the dynamic texture makes a big statement, it was done sans curling irons. Rather, Carney formed the defined curls using just Joico’s K-Pak Color Therapy Oil ($16), the K-Pak Protect and Shine Serum ($14; joico.com for locations), and a dryer with a diffuser attachment. Get the complete step-by-step breakdown in the video above.
