Rockin’ Retro

Combine modern style with classic silhouettes to create gorgeous retro style that’s stunningly sexy.

VINTAGE GLAM

Get ready to roll out the red carpet for this vintage silhouette. Retro waves on a short silhouette are perfect for exuding classic Hollywood style.

Get the look: Bump the sides using a small-barrel curling iron, and create “S”-pattern waves on the top of the mane with a large-barrel curling iron. Sculpt the “S” shape with a rake comb, and top off the style with an oil sheen and a spritz of holding spray for a solid finish!

CLASSIC QUEEN

Show off your retro flair in a new way with this modern twist on classic Victory Rolls. It’s the perfect upsweep for a woman of style.

Get the look: Apply styling cream to straight strands and part mane down the middle, leaving a section of hair out in the front. Roll each section up toward the top of the crown then pin in place with bobby pins. Use a flat iron to sculpt the loose strand in front into a stunning wave.

PIN-UP PRINCESS

Look as if you’ve just stepped out of a film noir with this gorgeous pin-up silhouette.

Get the look:  Divide mane into two sections. Style lengths in the back into body curls and comb together to create one large curl that drapes over the shoulder. Sculpt the front section into victory rolls and pin them in place. Use edge control for sleek sides and finish with holding spray.
