What is it: A lightweight styling paste used to add texture and definition to hair. It separates and defines hair without stickiness. Hair is pliable and easy to shape, curl, or twist into dramatic new looks. This is an essential styling product, hair shaper, and texturizer for short, sassy styles and sexy, long looks.

Who is it for: Anyone who wants to change their look without changing their haircut. It creates multiple styles, giving you the ability to change your look in seconds.

Why is it different: You won't believe your eyes! An innovative ingredient, ProElement, fosters deep penetration of nutrients into the hair. This product is formulated with minerals and vitamins and helps to give you the appearance of healthier-looking hair with lots of flexibility and style. The deluxe-size Embellish is accompanied by a travel-size bottle for on the go!

How do I use it: Remove the safety seal tab located just below the pump button. Gently push the center on the bottom inside of the product to release any air preventing the product from dispensing. A little goes a very long way--put a pea-size amount into your hands and rub your hands together. Clap your hands together until you begin to see formed fibers connecting hand to hand. The more fibrous you make it, the lighter the product becomes. For fine hair and those looking for a light amount of styling product, clap your hands repeatedly before applying it to your hair. If your hair is heavy in weight and tends to lay flat, clap your hands only a few times, leaving the product more concentrated. Apply to dry hair, run through the root area for lift and fullness, and apply to the ends for texture and definition.

Hairstylist tip: Defining products don't necessarily have hold to them--they are for creating new looks. Follow with hair spray to give your new look long-lasting hold.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't work This worked for about 3 minutes, then my hair went flat, like it was weighed down by the product. I used it on wet hair, damp hair, dry hair hair. I used it when my hair was shoulder length, and when it was short. I used a little. I used a lot. I was so hoping it would work. It was nothing like the presentation. 01-09-17
Rated 1 out of 5 by DO NOT BUY Terrible icky stuff.... looked great on QVC but it doesn't work that way! It does nothing to my hair except make it sticky! No volume at all ! I should have sent it back immediately. Throwing away. Waste of money. 01-08-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Calista! I've searched forever for a product that works with my hair which is thick and fine. Calista Definer is incredible! The unique application allows you to place the product wherever you want on your hair, in just the right amount. The "all day" hold is phenomenal. Never have I used a product with such great hold! Highly recommend!! 01-07-17
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not a fan! Very disappointing product! The presentation made it look so easy but when I got it home and tried it, epic failure! Would not recommend! 01-06-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally something that works for me I love this product. I have fine, frizzy hair and allergies so scents for hair products have been a real problem for me. So I am ecstatic that this product doesn't bother my allergies and actually gives my lifeless hair some volume. Also works for several days after apply. Thrilled finally found something that will work for me. 12-22-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by Only for short hair They made it look so easy and effortless to apply in the video. I found it difficult to say the least. Plus it's really just for shorter hair. I would not purchase again. 12-21-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by REALLY WORKS I was a little skeptical, but thought I'd give it a try since it wasn't that expensive. This stuff really works! I have short, fine hair - I tried it - I look like I have a lot more hair than I do. And after working all day, I can go home, put my fingers through my hair, and it gets full again. Well worth the money. 12-15-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Horrible fragrance I hated the fragrance. After using it I had to immediately wash it out of my hair. My friend loves it and says that it has no fragrance. I'm wondering if I got an old or bad batch. 12-14-16
