There’s something about those classic bright lips and lush waves that will forever catch our makeup-obsessed eyes. So, whenever you’re in the mood to look like you’re walking the red carpet (even if it’s more like a trip to the grocery store) this timeless look created by makeup pro Marygene Rosehas got you covered! Now all you need is a ball gown and a string of pearls …
Old Hollywood Waves
Step 1. Start by creating a deep side part. Using a 1¾-inch wand or barrel, curl all the hair inward (toward your face) and immediately pin each section up until it cools down to retain its shape. Lightly mist the hair with a flexible-hold, brushable hairspray like Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Hairspray.
Step 2. Once hair has completely cooled to the touch (this should take about 15 minutes), remove pins. Gently comb out the curls using a wide-tooth comb until they settle into waves. Give your hair another shot of hairspray and you’re halfway to ’40s glam!
