I don’t know about you but I’ve always been a really big fan of the ultra glamorous 60’s mod style hairdos. I have always loved the drop dead gorgeous styles women rocked at that time. Sharon Tate, Brigitte Bardot, Twiggy and Elizabeth Taylor’s lovely locks have always taken my breath away. This is why I’m so excited to see these retro, bold and elegant looks gracing almost every red carpet and catwalk this fall. Starlets form J.Lo to Blake Lively and Reese Witherspoon have been turning heads this season with 60’s inspired fabulous hair! Lets talk about some of the top styles and a few tricks and tips to get the same look at home this Fall!
Whether you’re going to wear your hair up or down an important tip when going for these sexy mod styles is to keep everything soft. First off here’s some tools that will help you create these fabulous styles.
Root Lifter. I love L’oreal EverStyle Alcohol Free Root Lifting Spray $6.99
Spray this in after you wash your hair when it’s still wet.
Serious Hair Spray. L’oreal Paris Ellnet Satin Hairspray $14.99
This hairspray is strong yet still flexible and lasts all day long.
A Paddle Brush. Goody Finish Paddle Brush $3.16
Great for brushing curls out into soft waves.
1. The best way to start off is to wash your hair using a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. Then blow it out. A good trick to help get volume is to start by turning your head over and blowing from underneath. If you’re going for a voluminous look add in some mouse to your damp hair. If you’re going for a super sleek look use an anti frizz cream. Then blow dry using a round brush. Pulling the hair around the crown up and out creating volume.
2. To create lots of lift and bounce apply the root lifter to dry hair, blow dry it and then using your fine toothed comb tease as needed depending on the style you’re going to. After you get you’re desired amount of volume it’s time to either use a flat iron for a sleek look or a large barrel curling iron for big bouncy waves.
3. If you want to do an up-do I recommend using a curling iron followed by a flat brush giving you big waves before putting it into place. Head bands are a fun way to dress up this look. Lately J.Lo has been doing the half up half down look, all you need for this is an elastic. You can even do up do’s using nothing but bobby pins. A great way to do a mod ponytail is to wrap a strand of hair around your elastic or in Reese Witherspoon’s case use clear elastic. What so fab about all of these gorgeous hairdos is there are so many different styles that can be done only using your comb, bobby pins and clear elastic. These timeless looks are limitless but they’re all super easy and fun to do and will have you turning heads this season without having to visit the salon.
