This Year’s Curl by Jen Hughes

This exciting collection travels back in time to the 20th Century through decades of statement-making hair from the wide-eyed ingénues of the ‘30s to the disco queens of the ‘70s and supermodels of the ‘90s. Looks from iconic women of the past who made their curls famous are reinvented and woven into a beautiful, modern-day pastiche of fresh style. Curling iron sets were used to create three very now looks with enticing texture and alluring volume that are just as head-turning today as they were in decades past.

This bold, blonde style embraces a decidedly ‘30s-inspired aesthetic that recalls a young Betty Davis meets Fay Wray. To get this look of old-Hollywood glamour with a modern edge, prep wet hair with a strong hold gel and set dry hair with a 1-inch curling iron in alternating subsections. Curl the top sections slightly off base and direct hair toward the face. Then comb the hair into an ‘S wave pattern to create a golden halo of fingerwaves cascading
around the face.
