With Daisy and Jay reprising their classic love story in the latest film version of The Great Gatsby, flapper-era chic is all the rage. Want to add some Gatsby-style glamour to your hair style? Here are some tips…and all that jazz!
- Make Waves. In the ‘20s, luscious finger waves owned the hair style spotlight. To create the modern version, start by misting dry strands with a heat protection formula like Matrix Biolage Thermal Active Setting Spray. Divide your hair into 1-inch horizontal sections and wind each section horizontally around a curling wand or closed iron. Clip each curl in place, let your hair cool, then unfurl the coils. Gently brush out the waves, backcomb with a medium-tooth comb to encourage party-all-night fullness and mist with Biolage Freeze Fix Anti-Humidity Hairspray.
- Curl Up. Looking for a Daisy-licious long hairstyle? Try curling and then coiling your long locks. Part your hair down the side, work in a few drops of Biolage ExquisiteOil Treatment to keep strands sleek, and form three “flapper curves,” starting from your hairline and working back. Gather the rest of your hair into a side pony, coil it into a tight bun, secure and spritz with Matrix Total Results Amplify Hairspray.
- Commit to the Cut. Ready to go full-Gatsby? Ask your hair stylist to create a side-parted, jaw-length, blunt bob haircut with crisp edges. To style the look, apply Total Results Sleek Blow Down Leave-In Cream to damp hair and blow dry. Smooth strands with a flat iron for a head-hugging effect and pop on a glittery headband for true ‘20s authenticity.
