Ok, so I’ll admit that at one time I watched a few episodes of The Hills – guilty as charged 😉 Although the show itself was a bit unrealistic for what was touted as reality TV, I was often impressed by Lauren Conrad’s sleek and demurely sexy style sense so I was happy to hear that she recently launched a beauty website in collaboration with her glam squad – her hairstylist & makeup artist. The site promises to offer tons of makeup & hair tips that Lauren has learned over the years and make it simple enough for readers to understand and hopefully replicate themselves.
I love glamorous looks that don’t look overly done up (but c’mon who’s kidding who? I also love over the top glamorous looks too!). Recently, The Beauty Department shared tips on how to achieve a toned down version of Rita Hayworth’s signature bombshell locks. I absolutely adore the classic vintage look but only if you are someone who can tastefully pull it off & look positively glamorous! Here’s the step-by-step on how to achieve this glam look for day or night (just adjust your makeup accordingly)!
-1″ barrell curling iron
-large setting clips
-medium hold hairspray
1) Find your side part. Either side will do.
2, 3, 4 & 5) You’re going to curl ALL of your hair inward toward your face (as Lauren does above) and clip the curls in place with large setting clips. Mist all over with a light-medium holding hairspray. Let them cool while you put on your makeup. Multi-Tasking!! Give it at least 15 minutes to cool and set.
6) Gently pull the clips out and let your hair fall.
7) Using a flat or paddle brush, brush hair back and away from your face and then let it spring back. The wave pattern will automatically start to appear. Keep brushing gently until it shows up. We like to help it along by molding the waves where you want them by hand and then adding one more veil of hairspray.
♥ Have a glamorous day!
