With the release of her album Music Speaks, American Idol season 12 winner Candice Glover is on the fast track to stardom. The rising star let SBH in on her hair and makeup routine…

Since winning American Idol, she’s experimenting more with haircolor. “I wear a lot more haircolor than I used to! Before, I would wear a burgundy color on my hair, but now I’m not afraid. And, since purple is my favorite color, I’ll put it in my hair or I’ll add clip-ins when I get my hair done.”

Candice definitely knows how to maintain her mane. “I try to wash it once every two weeks. So, I braid it on both sides and shampoo it. Then when I go to bed, I wear a satin bonnet. I also have a satin pillowcase to sleep on. I was advised by a hairstylist that satin is better for your hair than cotton. The satin ‘moves’ with your hair so your hair doesn’t bundle up in one spot. So, I think that’s a styling ‘secret’ that I learned along the way!”

The songstress has discovered the glam world of makeup! “When I was at home, I wouldn’t wear nearly as much makeup. But, now I see how makeup enhances everything. I actually went to Sephora and bought makeup. [A favorite thing I like to do is] mix lip colors. I find that to be really fun!”
