Living Proof Celebrity and Brand Stylist DJ Quintero was behind the cover star’s laid-back waves. Quintero says that he was aiming to create “a modern take on Marilyn Monroe,” as the cover’s photographer, Ruvén Afanador, “wanted a disheveled sexy hair moment with lots of movement and very touchable.” To ensure that Stewart’s hair had major volume, he prepped her wet strands with the Full Thickening Mousse, a styling product that claims to provide “a flexible hold for full body that lasts.”

After drying Stewart’s hair, Quintero spritzed the Full Dry Volume & Texture Spray all over her head. It intends to bring “volume and texture to any style for an imperfectly perfect lived-in look and feel.”

To secure the look in place, Quintero reached for the Flex Hairspray, a “medium-hold spray that can be used to set, style and finish without stiffness for touchable, brushable styles.”

Last but not least, he applied the Instant De-Frizzer to ward off any unwanted frizz from the humidity. It was used intermittently throughout the shoot for touch-ups, too. Here’s to getting a luscious, beach-ready blowout just like Martha’s!
