There’s something about warmer weather that just sparks my creativity, from the hours of sunshine and birds chirping to the vibrantly coloured flowers and the sweet icy treats. Every little detail of long summer days fills me with wanderlust and inspires me to leap out of my comfort zone.
Every year, like a metamorphosis, I shed my winter skin, lose my long straight hair and switch out my dark lipsticks for bright pops of colour. I always try to set out a challenge or two to ensure I make the most of the season in which you can do anything, go anywhere and be anyone.
So when the hair experts at Dove, TRESemme’, Nexxus and Shoppers Drug Mart asked me to embrace summer and experiment fearlessly with this season’s most coveted hairstyles, I jumped at the chance in this sponsored post.
Those hair experts curated “The To ‘Do List”, a collection of the hottest hairstyles that can take you on any adventure your summer heart aches to explore. From summer music festivals, picnics in the park, and long days at the beach to cocktail parties, whimsical weddings and off-duty days, “The To ‘Do List” has the perfect hairstyle for any occasion.
For my first foray into hairstyle heaven, I found my inspiration in a coffee table book full of Old Hollywood starlets with their glamorous waves pinned perfectly in place. I decided that I wanted to take the volume and drama of their classic style and give it a modern twist for effortless waves that can be worn for a night out on the town or even a wedding!
How To: Old Hollywood Glam Waves
I started out with a clean slate, my hair had been freshly washed with the Dove Invigorating Oil Care Shampoo & Conditioner and blown dry.
I then used the TRESemme’ Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo to add some texture back into the strands. I sprayed it along the crown of my head and throughout to help my hair hold onto the style and look more “undone”.
I separated my hair and used a 1” curling wand (held vertically) to curl 1” sections of my hair towards the back of my head. I then curled (held horizontally) the top section towards my face and pinned the pieces to cool.
Once set, I removed all of the pins and sprayed everything in place using the Nexxus Comb-Thru Finishing Spray. I also added a few jewelled pins for the finishing touch!
The finished product was exactly what I envisioned, Old Hollywood Glam with a fresh, undone twist. To see how I achieved this look in more detail check out the video below!
