What is it: A lightweight styling paste from Calista used to add texture and definition to 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! This product helps to give you healthier-looking hair with lots of flexibility and style. Embellish is now available in a 1.7-oz travel size.

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.

From Calista.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great stuff Great product. I have used many products on my hair over the years and this product is great for my thin fine hair to add the lift and volume I like. My hair is shorter chin level and I like lift at crown. Just need a small amount after patting in hands to make string like consistency. Wouldn't be with out it. It lasts a very long time as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sticky Junk Product This is like putting gum in your hair. worse product, what's with the clapping, really. Total waste of money. Junk product. Nick Chavez is the only person with hair products that actually work. There is a reason he has been on the Q for so many years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! I bought this product when it was on a crazy low price for 3 bottles per order! Looks like they changed up the packaging, so were probably clearing the warehouse. I took off one star for the packaging because it's kind of hard to get the product to dispense for the first time and my hand got tired. Maybe they took care of this issue with the new packaging? I am so happy that I FINALLY got this product. I have seen it for some time and thought that it couldn't be any better than the volumizing product I am using now (Big Sexy Hair volumizing powder). Well, I was pleasantly surprised with the results. It's kind of fun to clap your hands together and see the strands star to form. I put it at the top and roots of my hair and volume galore! I'm sure it will take me quite a while to use the 3 travel bottles I received. But, when I do run out, I will be back to order more. Thanks for a great product! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! I have very thick, wavy hair and I only use a tiny amount, maybe the size of a pencil eraser. This works amazingly well with my layered hairstyle. I do exactly as Maria demonstrates by working the product between my hands, clap a few times then rub my hands through my hair by lifting from underneath. Wow! Instantly you can see the layers and it helps define and shape my hairstyle. I love this product and am just ordering my second bottle! I hope this product is never discontinued! Great product Maria!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coming Back for More I bought this quite a while ago. I kept it at my desk at work and never tried it until today. My hair was looking flat and just plain boring so I thought I had nothing to lose by giving it a shot. I used a little less than I think I was meant to, but otherwise followed the directions. After use, my hair had volume and the curl was more defined. Co-workers told me how great my hair looked. I have naturally curly hair that is rather fine and is starting to thin a bit. Maybe the curl is why I loved the product when other reviewers didn't, but my results were so stunning I'm coming back for more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too messy gunky and Not for Me Hair spray does more for thin fine hair than this product. Used less than a pea size and still such a fly away messy product that I had to rush to wash out. Like sticky bumble gum on my hair. It was flying all over my vanity when I clapped 10 times and found pieces throughout my hair after fighting to try to get it rubbed into the root. Not a pleasant smell or exerience. Returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love I have been using the Calista Embellish for over 2 years and love it. It is great for short hair, you just have to learn how to apply it, which isn't difficult. It separates the hair and adds volume. Yes, it will be sticky as this defines your hair, that's why this is such a great product. Just wash your hands like you would after putting any hair product on your hair.
