You love wavy hair, and you’ve no doubt tried crimped hair at least once. To combine the two, opt for this neo-romantic version, spotted at the Viktor & Rolf Spring-Summer show. Crimped hair? Yes, but not too over the top
. It’s hard to pull off crimped hair
without looking like you’ve just walked straight out of the 90s. Yet Oscar de la Renta rose to the challenge in spring-summer 2012. It was a huge success with models anyone could’ve mistaken for Greek goddesses. This year, crimped hair is making yet another comeback for a delectable neo-romantic look… definitely one to copy! Get backcombed and crimped waves.
Hair is not backcombed or crimped at the roots to avoid too bold a style. Start by creating a centre parting
once your hair is dry and slick down your roots using hair gel. Don’t use too much of this styling product, you don’t want your roots to look greasy. Next work on your lengths. Take a comb and backcomb from the middle of your hair to your ends. This will give it a soft, fuzzy feel. Then, take your crimping irons and wait for your freshly crimped hair to cool down before running your fingers gently through the crimps. Let them fall nonchalantly over your shoulders for the perfect look.
