Vintage pin-up waves à la Marilyn Monroe are the holy grail of glamorous hairstyles, and we spotted a gorgeous modern take on the look at Australian Fashion Week. With all the full-bodied movement you could want combined with a smooth, flyaway-free finish, this is a must-try retro hairstyle!
To find out how to get the look, simply follow the tutorial below.
Get the look
Starting with towel dried hair, apply a smoothing heat protectant throughout. Make sure you get even coverage in order to prevent heat damage.
Rough dry your hair, using your hands instead of a hairbrush, until your locks are only very slightly damp.
Part your hair deep on one side with a wide-tooth comb, then apply a smoothing cream through the lengths.
Finish the blowout with round barrel brush. To create large, loose waves, wrap medium-sized pieces of hair around the barrel and gently glide the brush through to the ends. On the side of the part with less hair, hold the hair with the brush and blow it back behind your ear.
When your hair is dry, use a 1 ½" curling iron to create some extra waves through the mid-lengths and ends of your mane if necessary.
Spray a boar bristle brush with hairspray and run it through your hair. This will smooth the curls and tame any flyaways. Afterward, run your fingers through your hair to break it up and redefine the movement.
Finish with an all-over spritz of hairspray for long lasting hold and frizz prevention.
