    Oribe created a classic, 1970s’ Patti Hansen-inspired look. “I was going for a beautiful, strong style with lots of texture,” Oribe says. “The top is pulled back a little—a great way to get your bangs off your face for summer—and the fullness at the sides gives it a really interesting, striking look. Elizabeth loved it!”

    Get the cover look:
    1.
    Apply Volumista Mist for Volume at the roots and Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray from mid-shaft to ends and blow out.

    2.
    Create added volume at the root and at the front of the hairline with Dry Texturizing Spray.

    3.
    Pull the front pieces back and secure with a pin or barrette.

    For the inside story, Oribe took her back to a different decade: the ‘30s.

    Get the inside look:
    1.
    Spray Soft Lacquer section by section and curl hair with a curling iron.

    2. Apply Smooth Style Serum and wrap each section of hair into flat pin curls using a finger wave technique.

    3. Remove the pins and comb hair in place, pushing it behind the ears for a modern ‘30s look.
