Classic hairstyles

Though hairstyles can be something that’s ephemeral, there are still a lot of women that prefer to stick to a certain style that will transcend through time. Classic hairstyles are ageless and not the type that you will easily forgo once the novelty wears off. Bobs, long wavy tresses and a simple bun are some of the best classics th

Whoa! Last name ‘Knowles’ seems like qualification for a drop dead gorgeous style. We are confident that Diana Ross is honored with Solange’s retro tribute. When repeating this look, no need to worry about the frizz, so this is perfect choice for natural curly hair. In case your hair is naturally straight, compensate with small barrel curling iron action. Once you have medium sized curls to begin with, create central parting and tease your hair from tip to roots with a pick comb. Mist with hairspray and you are ready to go.

Runway trend for 2014 is super sleek hair in all shapes and forms: updo, ponytail, half up and even loose. Model Natasha Poly was wearing this hairstyle at Cannes Film Festival 2014. Her hair is parted in the middle and graced with generous amount of hair creme before thorough combing towards sides and back. Her hair was then tied in a low pony tail, which was folded at 3” length and pinned at the back. Loose ends of her ponytail were then sectioned, rolled and pinned above the 3” section to form this elegant chignon. A killer combo with smokey eyes make up!

Jessica’s stunning look at Met Ball 2014 is speaking volumes about vintage 40’s being unmistakable choice if you want boost of glamour in your hair. Before rolling up to the nape into queue curl, it is of utter importance to give some body to your hair by blow drying it with round brush ( tease a bit on the crown if your hair is thin!). Here we have deep side parting and some serious action with curling iron, so do use heat protection serum. Divide your hair into sections, roll them up one by one, and secure with bobby pins at the nape. Make sure you applied generous amount of hairspray. You probably want your hair in place throughout the entire ball, instead of turning into pumpkin after midnight. Offtopic: thumbs up for those earrings!

Lets be straightforward and admit that Alessandra’s drop dead gorgeous face would look just perfect with any hairstyle. At least this one is easy to copy. A day old hair is easier to handle. Use paddle brush to collect your hair at the crown and secure your ponytail with elastic. Take 1,5” section from the tail, coil it around elastic to conceal it and secure with bobby pin. Brush your ponytail for neat finish and apply small amount of shining serum.

Pop star rising Rita Oro is wearing her long ashy blond hair side parted in this hairstyle, which is latest favorite parting of many top showbiz ladies. Her very smooth and silky perfect loose  curls are simply screaming with glamor. So what’s the catch? Well, besides your usual weapons of choice like heat treatment protection spray, antifrizz serum, mousse, cream and the likes, blow dry your hair section by section directing the air flow down the shaft. Last, but most important, hold your curling iron up straight instead of horizontally while curling large sections of your hair.

Let’s go back for a moment to 20’s when this hairstyle was the expression of rebellion (against traditional long hair and complicated updos), pushing the limits and being forward in such a sophisticated way. Seems like it will never lose its elegance and glam, as even now, almost hundred years later, you can not look anything else but breathtaking and perfectly styled when wearing it. We would also add that smokey eyes makeup and red lipstick are not really optional… it is rather a must for completing the style! You do know that making fingerwaves does not include heat treatment for your hair? You did not? Ah, you are most welcome!

Summing up the total of impression and elegance, deep side parting of your long, blond mane and deep side parting with victory roll are not comparable by any chance. Extra effort applied for the latter is negligible. Credits for coolness of this hairstyle go to the contrast of single one victory roll sassiness and looseness of remaining hair. We love the idea of avoiding additional curls and waves, which is bringing a bit of edge to this look. Try it yourself: depending on your hair texture, a day old hair could be a good idea for starting point, at least when it comes to fine, thin hair. Otherwise add some hair cream. Take the whole right side section, take your bangs, take crown section all the way to the parting line, join them all together, brush them until smooth and start rolling from the ends. Direction of rolling should be from the right side towards the crown. When you reach the roots, secure the roll with bobby pins. Tuck the opposite side hair behind your ear. Fix with hairspray.
