Hair texture type: Jennifer Hudson has tightly coiled curls with a coarse texture, says curl expert Christo.
Going curly: Apply a hydrating, detangling leave-in conditioner to damp hair and let it air-dry. "My favorite leave-in is Unite 7 Seconds Condition Leave-In Detangler ," says Kiyah Wright, a stylist for Cloutier Remix, who has worked with Hudson.
Making it straight: "Start with damp hair and a good leave-in conditioner, like Unite 7 Seconds," she says. Blow until hair is just dry and follow with "a flat iron that gets to at least 450 degrees," she says. Finish with a silicon aerosol hairspray, like her favorite, B. The Product Spray Harder.
