This is probably the loveliest dark blond hair color ever! Congratulations to her hair dresser! We also love the curve of her side swept, blunt bangs, which is giving this ‘do a glam note of classic.

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!

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!

Side Parted Long Blond Hairstyle With Victory Roll

Summing up the total of impression and elegance, deep side parting of your long,..

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.

First thought: How much does that weigh?! In all its massiveness, we have to admit that the elegant factor of the hairstyle is still very much evident just like the 2014 fall collection of Carolina Herrera. The hair is neatly slicked back into an intricate high bun, with a wide section (5”) wrapped around it. If you lack the length in order to achieve this hairstyle, use extensions or a faux bun. Fake it ’till you make it!

Make the style last by applying a medium-hold hairspray with conditioning effect.

Orianthi’s half up hairstyle with subtle curls, a bouffant top and blunt fringe screams 80’s! A voluminous crown slenderizes the face and makes it appear angular. Highlight your gorgeous peepers by asking your hairstylist to cut your fringe below the brow area. For the subtlest of curls, use a narrow flat iron. Get a thin section of hair, clamp it in between the flat iron, slide the iron towards the end then roll it upwards. Release the clamp after 5 seconds. Apply a few spritz of hairspray once your hair has cooled completely.

Backcomb your way into an unmistakably lovely vintage hairstyle on your next party! Hannah Simone’s loose bouffant with side-swept bangs is truly a hairstyle winner! Gone are the days of helmet-like bouffant with a parched finish. An updated version features bounce, sheen and softness.

Second day hair works best when creating this hairstyle. Apply a texturizing mousse on top and in front that’s alcohol-free so as not to dry out your tresses. Do a good blowout (lifting from the roots) with lots of body. Tease the top portion of your hair, spritz with hairspray then blow dry. Shape the bouffant as well as the bangs.

A beehive hairstyle is always a delight to see. It has a dash of eccentricity but is still unmistakably elegant. Instead of doing a centrally even beehive that will make the Coneheads swoon, Archie Panjabi opted for a slightly tilted version. Not too shabby, we say. Create a large bun under that pouf to make your beehive extra large. Tease your hair gently from the roots and use a hairspray with a super strong hold to make the coif last.

We love this ‘do! It’s very sophisticated and truly exhibits high glam except for the bobby pins. Ditch the bobby pins when you recreate this hairstyle. The pins are there to set the style after you’ve spritzed some hairspray. Do a swift blow dry over your mane to set the style further then gently remove the pins. Applying gel before working on your hair will make everything way easier. Try it!
