Follow Lopez's demonstration below to learn how to use the spray to get a luscious head of hair worthy of the A-List.

Step 2: Slowly twist out curls to elongate the wave. Straighten the ends.

"Most girls make their hair too 'done' or curled. Use a flat iron or blow dryer and paddle brush to loosen waves," Lopez explains. "Use a good amount of product. Don't be afraid of it!" 

Voilà! The result is Chrissy Teigen-like waves.
