How-to: 60s sex kitten hair
Free love wasn’t the only thing flowing in the ‘60s. Long, semi-dishevelled tresses cascaded over shoulders, and now they’re making a comeback on the catwalk…
“I was inspired by the classic ‘Rock Star’s Girlfriend’ look of the late ‘60s, a look that is still much coveted today, as it is the perfect combination of sexiness and class,” said Eugene Souleiman, Global Creative Director Wella Professionals, Care & Styling, who created this gorgeous look for the New York Fashion Week DKNY show. “For me, it’s all about creating the perfect look and then bringing in imperfection, in this look we’ve done that by adding texture for a raw, sexy, ‘lived in’ look.”
Here’s how he did it:
1.) Blow-dry your hair using a smoothing serum, like Wella Professionals High Hair Crystal Styler Blow-dry Lotion, and a round brush to produce a silky smooth finish.
2.) Split your hair into a side parting and, working with sections of your hair from around your crown, wind each section round a large Velcro roller.
3.) Secure each roller in place with a bobby pin, and leave in your at least 15 minutes. This will help to create extra volume and movement.
4.) Remove the rollers and spritz your loose hair with a texturising spray, before blasting dry with a hairdryer. Try: Wella Professionals High Hair Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray.
5.) To finish, gently massage the crown of the head with your fingers to add extra texture and create a slightly ‘dishevelled’ effect.
