1. To get Alicia Keys' hairstyle, apply a heat protectant to damp hair and blow dry using a paddle brush.
2. Create a deep side part, then use a 1 1/2-inch barrel curling iron the curl sections of your hair. Clamp down, roll up, and hold for a few moments before releasing.
3. Brush through your curls a few times to create loose waves. Spritz gel on one side of your part, and then use your palm to smooth that side of your hair back. If your hair is long enough, gather the length of your hair into a mid-height ponytail and secure with elastic. Then twist the pony around to create a bun and secure with bobby pins.
4. Tousle the top and opposite side of your hair to create volume and finish with a workable hairspray.
