Feel like going for that ultra posh retro glam look? Try Lauren Conrad’s style! Once you’ve given your hair a good blowout do, the following:
1/ Pick your part! Do a neat side part using a comb.
2/ Create large sections of hair and curl it up using a large (preferably 2”) curling wand.
3/ Secure each curl with clips, pinning it inwards (towards your face).
4/ Once your hair has cooled down, remove the pins.
5/ Shape the curls together using a large boar bristle brush.
6/ Finish the look with some hairspray to set the style! Now, go smile and conquer the night!
We want to start a slow clap and a standing ovation for Bobby Glam’s elegantly immense bun! Another vintage style that deserves a great revival! Prep hair with some mousse before blow drying it to keep frizz at bay.
1/ Create a low ponytail first before pushing hair in front to do a second one by securing hair (near the end) with an elastic.
2/ Flip the second one inwards on top of the base of your first ponytail and secure it with bobby pins.
3/ Arrange the bubble bun you’ve created by spreading it gently with a comb from side to side.
4/ Secure the bun all over with bobby pins making sure that the elastic you used for ponytail is entirely covered before setting it with hairspray.
5/ Voilà! Vintage chic!
Looking for a playful (and youthful) hairstyle for prom? Check out this easy – with a big impact – bun from The Beauty Department!
1/ Put a tiny amount of styling cream to dry hair before curling it.
2/ Do a high ponytail, but before you do one more round with your elastic…
3/ …create a big loop on top leaving a few inches of hair loose to wrap around the base.
4/ Do a slinky spread to your big loop.
5&6/ Loosely wrap the excess hair you created (no. 4) around the base of the ponytail.
7/ Secure your bun with pins before tucking in stray hairs at the base.
8/ Use an ample amount of hairspray to hold the style all throughout the night.
Okay, we confess – an ordinary chignon (though elegant in its simplicity) is just plain boring. Thank goodness for tweaked versions such as Fashion Magazine’s! It gave a whole new interesting twist to this Grecian ‘do!
1/ Section hair on each side then tease the middle section to create texture and volume.
2/ Do a low ponytail on the teased middle section, pushing on the crown for some poof.
3/ Roll the ends of your ponytail towards the nape of your neck and secure it with pins.
4/ Take the section (right) you did earlier, twist it then put it over the chignon. Tuck and pin the ends underneath. Do the same on the other side.
5/ Leave some loose strands on one side for a dreamy look. You can also opt to curl some strands on top for an additional drama.
6/ Intricate coif with a flair!
