Nothing could stop "Glee's" Lea Michele from looking gorgeous for her "America the Beautiful" performance at Super Bowl XLV on Sunday -- not even aggressive air vents.

"As she was walking onto the field to perform she passed an air vent and her hair went flying," said Dove Hair Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend. "It could have been disastrous but actually worked in our favor -- we couldn't have gotten a better look setting up a wind machine ourselves!"

While the incident might have shaken Michele's Type A, on-screen alter ego Rachel Berry, the powerhouse performer carried on like a pro while Townsend admired his handy work from the sidelines.

To copy the smooth, classic look he created for Michele, Townsend offers up a few of his secret weapons.

"I always start off putting a drop of Dove Nourishing Oil Care Serum in wet hair," he explained. "The oil blend in this line, with coconut and almond oils, absorbs into the hair instantly to nourish and smooth dry hair."

Once the serum was applied, Townsend brushed it, then added a pump of Dove Body & Lift Mousse for extra hold, but to keep strands soft and touchable. He finished off the look by blow-drying Michele's hair straight with a round brush.
