Tired of the usual side-swept bangs? Try flipping it for a natural windblown effect! Put the large round brush on top of your fringe, glide it towards the end then roll them up away from your face and blow dry. Do this a couple of times until you reach the desired fanned style. If you choose to use hairspray to set it, get the one that has a light hold so that the bangs will have a natural bouncy effect.

Retrofy your bob by curling the ends just like Alanna Masterson’s! It’s very 50’s with a little bit of a modern appeal. The curls are kept bouncy and loose instead of the stark version of the bygone era.

DIY: Apply some mousse to damp hair to make it cooperate. Do a side part before giving your hair a blowout. Twist an inch wide section of the ends of your hair around a large curling iron for 5-10 seconds then release. Go for softer curls, not tight ones.

Roll each section and clip them flat against your head using small aluminum duck bill clips. Remove clips after 45 minutes to an hour then brush the curls gently. Use a thin round brush when you blow dry your bangs. Curl the lower part of your bangs towards your forehead. Hold the style with some hairspray.

We don’t know if this cool short shag is inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘Sliding Doors’ pixie back in the late 90’s because the cut is far too similar. Whatever. The most important thing is that it looks great (enviable even) on Jennifer Lawrence! Upper half of the back is given a good body with subtle layering all the way to the nape. The short wispy hairs at the crown help shape the angular effect of the haircut further. Women with naturally fine hair can pull off this style with ease. Avoid this haircut if your jawline is wider than your forehead.

Lara Stone recreated yet another of the Sixties’ infamous ‘do. Since that great era until today, the heart of this backcomb creation is none other than a hairspray with a strong hold. If you want extra boost, spritz hair with a good root volumizing spray. The product will give your hair enough lift. This will in turn result in less teasing which is damaging to the hair.

Well, here’s a funky way to modernize a retro updo! Add a few chunks of temporary blue streaks to your hairstyle using Bumble and Bumble’s Spraychalk in Cobalt. It dries quickly and is not messy. Just create a few sections (1” thick) and spray away! Tease the hair at the crown then loosely twist it vertically and secure with pins. Lift the hair at the top some more for a bigger poof.

This is another braided hairstyle that we highly recommend for formal events and proms! Part hair to one side then separate the front section of the hair from the rest of your mane. Apply gel to the front section and do finger waves by combing the strands thoroughly. Next, shape the first wave by putting a finger at the end of a 3” horizontal section of the front part. Push the hair forward on top of the finger towards the forehead using a fine-toothed comb then remove your finger and clip that part. Do two more waves using the same technique.

Braid the back section until the tip then tie with elastic. Roll the ends inward, towards the nape, then pin. Remove the clips of your marcel waves. Sweep it gently over your ear then clip it on the side of the braid then tuck and clip the end under the plait for a clean finish. Give yourself a pat on the back! You deserve it!

Embrace the gamine revolution by donning an exaggerated version of Elvis Presley’s pompadour. Actually, a faux version of the King of Rock and Roll’s hairstyle.

How-to: Apply mousse all over damp hair then rough-dry using a blow dryer. Create tight curls using hot rollers. Keep the rollers in until it has completely cooled (about 30 minutes). You need to call a friend for the second part. Flip your hair and ask a friend to braid your hair from the nape until the crown. Leave the ends loose. Rough up the ends a little and tease it from the roots for a good volume. Shape the curls slightly towards the middle and set the style with hairspray. That’s it! Thank you, thank you very much.

Marcel waves are not as obvious in black hair as it is in lighter shades, so you have to do some extra effort in making the dents stand out. The best way to do this is by making your hair extra glossy and creating deeper waves. Apply a liberal amount of styling gel and allow wave clamps to stay longer than usual. Be careful when doing an updo like Zhang Ziyi’s so as not to straighten the waves.
