STYLIST ADVICE
Get That Gatsby Glamour

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!

  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
