This was an article that I had written for a publication that didn't make it in. But after re-reading it, I think it is still worthy for today's summer looks.
Can you guess what year this was?
This summer we’ve got movies that will transport us
from the inspiring surfer girl
to the pirate women of the seas
to the futuristic ladies of the superhero world.
And although the range of characters will be vast there will be one common theme, waves!
To get these incredible haphazard waves
you’ve got to take a totally different approach
to curling your hair.
Soft, natural waves will add fullness
without being too structured.
To get this look try applying Kenra medium hold volumizing mousse on clean uncombed hair.
Blow dry until hair is 90% dry.
Then take 2" sections of hair and twist to the ends.
Loop the ends back to the scalp and secure with pins. Sleep on hair.
In the morning carefully unwind each twist.
Flip hair upside down and shake lightly
making sure to not overwork the waves.
Flip up and shake into place.
Apply a small amount of Moroccan Oil to dress the waves. This look will be great no matter what your summer occasion.
Don’t forget the up-do’s.
Take those waves and loosely pull them
into a low ponytail.
Add some interest by placing your pony to the side.
To keep your pony looking polished
leave out a strand of hair to wrap around your elastic.
Pin in place and you now look like you’ve been styled
by the pros.
Take it one step further and twist ends of the pony up
and pin around the elastic.
Tease the hair that didn’t make it into the pin
for a Ragamuffin Chic effect.
This summer the hair is easy and beautiful
so enjoy looking as good as the women on the big screen!
