The Moodyhair blog is news all about the latest and greatest hair products, tools, trends and techniques for both him and her in the industry.
Winter hair trends are definitely going back in time thanks to hit period drama’s like Downton Abbey. The surge of vintage hair and styling looks set to continue as people are inspired by the glamour and sophistication of a romantic yesteryear.
Key looks are waves and soft gentle curls along with sleek shine and sweeping fringes.
If you already have short or collar length hair your ahead of the game, if you’re hair’s longer and you don’t want to cut it consider pinning it up creating a loose ponytail tied just below the collar, then turning the ends back under the rest of the hair to create a “faux bob” shape.
It’s all about crests and finger waves and soft baby curls onto the face. Ask you stylist to wave the top or fringe of your hair using wide curling tongs or pin curls. It can be done after your usual haircut and should only take a few extra minutes.
Although a little trickier to do yourself, it is possible with care and practice. Blowdry your hair sleek and flat, then add a heat styling spray for protection and hold.
You’ll need a round barrel tong or one the new styling “wands” (you could use straightening irons if you already have the knack of creating waves with them).
Take vertical sections about 3cm wide, place the barrel close to the root and carefully wind the hair length down the barrel, always winding toward your face at the sides, or in the same direction on the fringe. Allow the rolls to cool and set, before brushing out with a soft bristle brush working downward. Allow the waves to form naturally and then exaggerate the peaks and troughs by gently pushing in with the edge of your hand while applying a medium hold hairspray. Don’t forget to accessorise for the party season with sparkling slides and bows to emphasise that 20’s glamour. Chin Chin!
