I am simply fascinated by the appeal that Veronica Lake styled waves have been greatly duplicated in the past couple of months. This particular type of wave set is truly versatile in every sense. Though it’s hard to imagine really pulling this look off, I’d like to think the creative geniuses over at Prada wouldn’t have made it possible to style every model with the retro hairstyle of it weren’t conceivable to the every day woman.
The retro hairstyle begins with a dramatic and exaggerated side part. The first wave, though large is very important. Making sure that volume is minimal and that there is truly smoothness and sleekness is sometimes an issue most women run into. Using a lightweight blowdry lotion or even an awesome heat protectant before you blowdry can ensure that many of those fly-aways stay put.
Continuing through, a simple 1 1/2 to 2 inch curling iron barrel can really do the rest of the work. Take a horseshoe section from ear to ear and take moderate sized vertical sections. Be careful not have the heat on high it is very easy to wind up with stiff pageant curls. After having curled take a wide tooth comb and slowly separate and set the curls into a continuous S formation.
You want to make sure not to over comb the hair, as it is very easy to end up with a frizzed out mess. After you’ve succeeded just hairspray and walk out the door.
I also have to mention that if you can get your hands on some medium sized metal duck billed clips it will make your job a lot easier when you decide to hairspray. Mainly to ensure that the beautiful wave holds up and that you do not lose the lustrous S formation.
