Throwback Thursday: 5 Steps to Perfect 50’s Hollywood Curls

Perfect 50’s Hollywood Curls

Calling all graceful, glitzy and glamorous gals! Don’t just reach for the stars, look like a star with these classic Hollywood curls! Follow the five steps below for a timeless hairstyle that will actually save you time!

Tools Needed:
Fishtail Comb
L&M Clip-In L&M Hair Extensions
Voluminous Mousse or Curling Spray
Elastic Band
Duckbill Clips or Bobby Pins
L&M Trio Curling Wand
L&M Detangling Brush
Hairspray

Step One: Pump up the Volume!

The key to success with these elegant curls is starting off with voluminous hair. Kick off your Hollywood ´do by blow drying your L&M Clip-In Extensions, focusing on lifting the roots upward. Apply your favourite oil-free volumizing mousse or curling spray to maximum your full potential for va-va voluminous hair. L&M Top Tip: We like Davines’ This is a Volume Boosting Mousse!

Step Two: Now, Comes the Vintage!

Embrace the vintage look by creating a deep side part using the pointed end of your fishtail comb for a crisp, clean line. Divide your hair into two horizontal sections and secure the top half away with an elastic band. Create 2 inch sections throughout the bottom portion of your hair. These sections will be curled in step 3!

Step Three: Shape Your Curl, Girl!

Using the largest barrel of your L&M Trio Curling Wand, curl the sections of hair created in Step 2 by holding the wand parallel to the ground and wrapping the hair around the barrel towards its end. L&M Top Tip: Wear your curling glove included with your wand for safety!

After releasing your curl, twist the curl inwards towards itself and pin against your scalp with a duckbill clip or bobby pin. This helps the curl keep its shape while creating volume. L&M Top Tip: The longer you leave your curl pinned, the longer they will last! Repeat for the rest of the bottom section.

Step Four: Pin, Set and Go!

Repeat Steps 2 and 3 with the top section of your hair. L&M Top Tip: Get ready to look a little silly! Take a selfie and send it to your friends while you wait. Once your curls are set, release the curled sections from the clips or pins starting from the back of your head and towards your face.

Step Five: It’s Time for Fun!

Time for the fun part! Spray your L&M Detangling Brush with your favourite hairspray and brush through your curls for a soft, full effect. Your hair should naturally fall into an s-like shape. Gently smooth out the frontmost pieces with your fingers and shape into place. Finish with a final coat of hairspray for longer wear.

You’re done! Get ready for the paparazzi! Feel glamourous like a Hollywood star with these charming curls. Where will you be sporting these curls? Show us on Instagram by tagging us @locksandmane or by using #longhairdontcare.
