Fall in love with this retro-glam blow-dry look. Discover our experts’ top tips to recreating this runway style at home for yourself.
The retro blow-dry
is ideal for girls with mid-length hair. ‘The longer your hair, the more difficult it will be to make your curls hold. Shoulder length locks are the optimum length for this look. However, this hairstyle will go perfectly with whatever outfit you choose thanks to its versatility and will add a glamorous, sophisticated vibe. If your hair is curly, wavy or frizzy, start by straightening out these kinks to get a smooth base to work with’.
There are several different techniques for creating a retro blow-dry. ‘The only difficult part is creating your curve
in the correct place. Prepare your hair with a small amount of Brush Cream.
Straighten your lengths, curving inwards towards the ends for a flicked-in effect. A round barrel brush may help. The second option is to create big, bouncy curls with the help of a curling iron. After styling, brush out gently with a soft brush. A final technique is to use Velcro rollers. Apply mousse before styling to add volume, then roll damp sections of hair up into your rollers and allow to dry naturally’. Our advice:
Whichever technique you select, always finish off your locks with a layer of hairspray to ensure your style stays in place all day long. © PixelFormula, Hermès prêt-à-porter runway, Autumn-Winter 2013-2014 © Jean Louis David
