Create glam, Hollywood-inspired waves
Old Hollywood: it's the epitome of glamour, and while its name might suggest otherwise, it never goes out of fashion. The sirens of the golden age of Hollywood continue to influence every area of fashion and style today, whether it’s the red lip, a bold slick of eyeliner or, of course, a classic set of tumbling waves. Ultra feminine and flattering, there's little not to love about this look, so it's hardly surprising style-savvy girls are still championing gorgeously glossy curls with aplomb.
Whether you’re going all out for a special event or you’re an everyday vintage vixen: there's a set of perfectly-coiled waves waiting to be worn. And you don’t need to head to the salon to recreate them. Using professional-quality products, it’s not as hard as you might think to create the stylish, sophisticated look of the silver screens from the comfort of your sofa. Want proof? Top TRESemmé hair stylist Jeanie Syfu reveals the tricks of the trade with six easy steps below. Pin-up-ready, glam curls: yours in an instant.
Step 1: Prepare your hair by washing with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Shampoo and Conditioner. Enriched with sea kelp extract, the Perfectly (un)Done system helps remove dirt, oil and impurities and infuses hair with texture so it's ready for styling.
Step 2: Towel dry your tresses and work a palmful of Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creation Sea Foam from root to tip to help add extra texture and hold.
Step 3: Blow-dry your hair in sections with a round brush, starting from the root and angling upwards to create volume.
Step 4: In order to get the classic ‘S’ wave shape associated with the glamour of Hollywood, you’ll need to use a curling iron. Take a 1.5 inch curling wand and curl your hair in sections. As you create each curl, take it in your palm and let it cool, then gently clip to your head using sectioning clips. Leave to cool completely to set the wave.
Step 5: Once cooled, release the clips and pull down each curl gently. This should give you perfect control, but if you find the curls a little tight or stiff, use a wide-toothed comb to soften them.
STEP 6: Mist over Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hairspray to secure the bounce – the weightless formulation helps hold your look without stiffness.
