Hair Post #4: Hollywood Waves

20131008-184047.jpg

This style hair has been emulated by many celebrities and movie stars, including Lana Del Rey, Kim Kardashian, Sienna Miller and Megan Fox. It’s basically a modern twist on a Fifties set; where ladies used to have rollers placed in wet hair and popped under a huge hair dryer! Nowadays this look can easily be created at home. Retro in inspiration yet the outcome is modern!

What you need…

  • Curling wand like these.
  • Sectioning grips
  • Hair spray
  • Soft bristle brush
  • Heat Protector

  • Create a side parting from around where you eyebrow arches, then section your hair into four sections. Two at the front, two at the back.
  • Start at your back sections; take you curling wand and wrap and twist your hair; around one inch thick by one inch wide, towards the face.
  • Hold each sections of hair around wand until you can feel the heat off your hair. Then release and carefully grip with a small sectioning grip.
  • Repeat this until all hair is done.
  • The most important part is that you leave your hair to cool. Maybe do your makeup at this point.

  • Remove all grips and brush curls out, leaving large waves.
  • For extra staying power and if you have patience you can use a finger wave technique and grip the troughs of the waves, see pic above.

  • I tend to tuck one side behind my ear and clip into place and then brush my fringe section over.
  • I spritz with a bit of hair spray to finish and shine spray on the peaks of the waves.
  • Finally, pop your soft bristled brush in your bag, I find the more your brush, the better it looks!
