Instructions

1. Wash your hair well with a volumising shampoo if you’re in need of some lift – especially on your roots. You might want to leave out a conditioner when creating this look, it will only weigh your hair down.

2. Let hair air-dry, then focus on creating some extra volume on your lengths. Combine a few pumps of styling mousse and curl enhancer on both your roots and ends. For best results, work the product into damp hair and massage into the scalp.

3. Create a side part, and tuck your fringe or shorter layers behind your ear. This style is also a great option if you’re working with 2-3 day old hair and need to hide an oily scalp!

Use a styling wand to enhance your curls for a naturally tousled look.

Get The Look: 1920s Waves Like Christina Hendricks’ Emmys Hair

Need wedding hair inspiration whether you’re the bride or a guest? We think these flapper-inspired, 1920s waves, like Christina Hendricks showed off at last month’s Emmys, are the perfect elegant hairstyle for medium to long hair. Simply pair with a feminine dress, antique jewellery and a vampish red lip.

We asked celebrity hairstylist Dario Cotroneo to share his how-to to recreate this gorgeous hairstyle in just 4 easy steps.

1. Section a side part from the hairline to the crown area. Then section hair at the back of head into three even sections.

2. Begin each section in the back area by backcombing the roots and spray with Thermal Image from Wella. Place the hair under the MYCURL and roll up horizontally. Starting from the mid lengths area, secure the first strap then continue rolling the MYCURL to the roots and secure the second strap. Then clamp the irons over the MYCURL for 15seconds. Repeat for the other two back sections.

3. Divide the front sections into two sections on both side of the face, roll in two Large MYCURLs on both side sections away from the face without the backcombing, spray with Thermal Image from Wella and roll a Large MYCURL into the hair horizontally from the mid lengths and secure with straps around the cheekbone area. Then clamp irons over the MYCURL for 15 seconds. Allow hair to cool down for 20 minutes.

4. After hair has cooled, remove all MYCURLs and lightly brush hair forward from the mid-lengths to ends in order to separate the curls, and then spray some shine spray for a glossy finish. To keep your style looking polished and groomed, around the face and on the top layer, spray hairspray onto a makeup brush and brush around the parting and around the face.
