What is it: A lightweight styling paste used to add texture and definition to every strand of hair. Separate and define hair without stickiness or buildup. 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! The innovative ingredient, ProElement, fosters deep penetration of nutrients into the hair. This product contains specific minerals and vitamins to give you healthier-looking hair with lots of flexibility and style.

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-sized 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 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product Calista Embellish Texturizing Definer does exactly what is says it does, texturizes and defines your finished hair style and without leaving "dirty" residue on your hair like similar products on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Volumizer Ever I have very fine limp hair. This product gives me volume like nothing else I've tried! You just need a very small amount. It does not drag hair down like some volumizing products do. I love it. 05-12-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best ... After A Bit Of Trial & Error! I only need extra lift to the back crown area of my short-do, so applying the pea-sized dab to palms of my hand didn't give me the control I wanted for application. I now dab a corn-kernel dab onto my fingertips to create strands for applying, and this works perfectly ... Fixes my cowlick, gives me lift. I just had to play with the product a bit to find how to make it work for me! In this case, patience was a virtue! 04-24-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by Badly Designed Container I saw this product demonstrated about a month ago and thought I might try it. My hair is fine and has not much body, but then I read the reviews and got the impression that it didn't work well on long hair. The positive reviews were all for short hair. A little over a week ago I cut my hair short and went to the QVC website and thought I'd give it a try. I should have paid more attention to the low reviews that complained about the pump container. They were telling the truth. I received this two days ago and wanted to try it yesterday for the first time. I think I pumped the container at least 150 times and told myself that new pump bottles take some priming. Finally I got a spritz of the foam from the container. I tried it on my short hair and it worked pretty good. I figured by the time I got the hang of it I would like it a lot. Then this morning a wanted to use it again and again it wouldn't spurt any product. I counted this morning and I pumped 250 times and did not anything out of the bottle. So it's going back. Still not sure if I will try another bottle that might pump better because I think the product has potential. So spending money to ship it back and will keep fingers crossed that the next bottle actually pumps. 04-18-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by reliable product product doesnt quite do what the demonstration shows. Its not going to poof your hair out completely like it does when QVC demos it - but it does give additional body and texture to fine hair. I like using it most of the time. I 2will say that the product size shrunk since the last time I purchased it. Container is about 10-15 % smaller for the same price. 04-13-16
