with us, michelle. >> thank you. i'm loving your wave. >> this is something that's becoming really popular lately, why? >> well, i think curls and waves are really youthful and it's also a little bit more free-spirited, right? obviously, still, a straight look is really great. but on the red carpet, people want to be more free-spirited. >> speaking of free-spirited we have our first look, it's the beach loose wave. sofia vergara loves this look. there's a look at her. now, we have our model holly. let's see holly after her beachy wavy look. she looks gorgeous. >> she looks amazing. >> i love it. how do we do this? >> it's all about the volumizing mousse with this. the best way to get this look is, wash your hair and dry it about 80% of the way, kind of finger style some of those waves in, put it into two braids, when
8:36 am
you undo the braids and you kind of let it all air dry. and it will come out these beautiful beachy waves. >> it looks fantastic. thank you so much, holly. we have a question now from twitter, this is karen, how can i make curls not look crunchy or slept on with all that mousse sometimes? that happens. >> it happens sometimes. if you're worried about the crunch, use a couple of drops of hair oil. it will leave it soft and manageable. next, we have spiral curls. it looks gorgeous. let's have our model alexandra before her transformation. alexandra, come on out and show us our next style. wow, that looks like a lot of work. >> she looks fantastic. it's all about the curl cream. if you find a really great defining curl cream, the best and easiest thing to do is take a shower at night, when your hair is soaking wet,

part your hair in different sections, apply the cream. put it in a top knot. sleep on it. when you wake up you'll have these defined curls. >> it looks fantastic. thank you so much. >> now, let's see a woman who has tight curls can do. we have a look at styled in a loose curl. our model stacey has short hair and tight curls right there. come on out, stacey, and let's see your new look. she looks fantastic. >> stacey is a great example of how you can have bangs with curly hair. if you have a really great side swept bang and loose wave is really flattering. >> then, we have with straight hair, want to be on trend, look at that, let's see our model jamie before. she has that straight hair -- no it's kind of wavy there. come on out and let's see what
8:38 am
you look like with your new curls. she hooks great. >> she looks great. what we did here, we're showing off some soft ring lets and we used two different curling irons. you want to use one that's thicker and one that's a thinner. you want to alternate. because you want it to look real. we sprayed a really great frizz control spray at the end. beautiful. >> it looks fantastic. let's bring all the models out. you all look spectacular. you guys look great. michelle lee, thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. coming up, more hair. a barbershop takeover. the watch party. all coming up next. all coming up next.

barbershop, you can always climb the local celebrities. or the politicians. we wanted a story that's really going on in chicago. the south side of chicago. you can't do a movie "barbershop" without talking about what's going outside the barbershop. it was just the perfect backdrop to wrap this movie in. >> it was also about this 48 hour, the weekend of a cease-fire, and you got that from a real-life story in memphis. a barbershop in memphis? >> yeah, i read a story about a guy who, you know, he didn't know what to do, so, he said he was going to give out free cuts if they stopped the violence and i just thought that was a great premise and a great thing for him to do for the community and, you know, so, and barbershop, we got something similar. >> you surely do. that was very important to you?
8:45 am
>> yes, it's empowering. it's like -- i remember hearing president obama saying in a speech like it's going to be up to you what you do in america, what we do as the people. for our story to say, the barbers can help make change. anybody can help make the change. i think the movie for me makes me feel good when you leave. >> it makes you think, gentlemen, because i knew i was going to laugh and you do that. and i knew it was going to have some heart to it, but -- you finish watching it, it makes you ask questions and it does inspires you and it gives you hope. i got to tell you, my barbershop. my dad went to tyrone's every saturday. we're going to go to kolby's, a barbershop in new jersey. the fellas want to ask you a question. who has a question for the guys here? do you have a question?
8:46 am
>> ask the question. >> how you doing? i'd like to ask cube a question. can you hear me? >> go ahead, shoot. >> if you weren't an actor would you be a barber in real life? >> hey, maybe. barbers are our unsung heroes in the neighborhood. they keep our self-esteem up so do our beauticians, you know, without them, where will our self-esteem be, you can always walk into a barbershop get a nice conversation when you walk out, you're looking good and feeling good and you know, it makes us feel better. so, i would definitely consider it. >> it was the social media before the social media. >> without a doubt. >> how about you? you got the clean look. >> i take pride in this bald look. keeping my beard tight. i care about my body, you know what i mean.
8:47 am
