Get retro chic and wow the world. Her fair hair is the perfect final detail to complete the ensemble. Another thing contributing to this eclectic look is the makeup. It's beautiful, and even though it's not what you'd call retro chic like her remarkable hair, it matches to perfection. Her mysterious full dark lips give a hint of gothic style, which is perfect to balance the very feminine coiffure. Her very striking, long and dark eyebrows are also key as they add a modern vibe.

 

Eyes Sparkle.

And let's not forget the other aspects of her eyes. The sparkly eyeshadow is an excellent complement to the overall effect and makes you stare back. Don't overlook another factor, her nails. Those pointed, long dark nails are an ideal addition to the wide-ranging look, giving it a touch of edginess. We have to admit the main attraction of the picture is the amazing bouffant. Everything else is important too, but only to bring it all together. Mixing different charming effects, vibes, and eras produces a contemporary but paradoxically nostalgic finish. By combining the retro chic hair, modern and gothic makeup and edgy nails the overall product is well executed.

Team up light-winged eyeliner, berry lipstick, a string of pearls, and you're raring to go. Would flatter duskier skin tones and round or heart-shaped faces. Since the hairstyle is voluminous, her face looks sharper and she's rejuvenated a little. This may have been invented in the 1920s, but it's so beautiful, consider it timeless.

Crimping without Producing a Frizz-bomb?

First, comb the fringe and secure at the front using bobby pins. Though crimping is possible using curling irons, a crimper on wide, probably maximum, setting will give improved results. Once towel-dried, untangle the stubborn knots by brushing with a wide-toothed comb. Once a section seems smooth enough, take smaller sections, hold in loose bunches while pressing down on equidistant, moderate to big portions with the crimper. Allow the waves to cool and set. Don't pull taut until cool as the crimps will pull out.

 

Applying hairspray before pressing down will provide the definition, resulting in crisper crimps producing almost nil frizzes. Crimping applying less pressure gives a softer finish. Teasing the crown area gives volume. Spritz with more spray to set.

 

Go Marilyn by Adopting Fifties Classics.

Part on your chosen side, and comb stiff gel to the roots, especially up front where you need most volume. Start at the front, closest to your forehead. Using your preferred wand curler, curl bangs away from your face to increase the perception of body. The curls you're trying to produce will start small and round, sausage-shaped. Some of us are blessed with natural hold, curl and it stays curled, straighten it and you've got pin straight locks all day.

Pin Curl Clips.


If you're like the rest of us, pin curl clips will be your bestest friend forever in the battle against watching your efforts slowly-straightening. Curling the back is tricky, assuming you don't have a roommate to lend a hand. A flat iron will get those pieces at the back into cute little curls. Once you've curled everything, we recommend waiting for twenty to thirty minutes. Then use the flat iron once again to smooth out your proud new curls, remember you're not straightening, you're controlling the curls, so turn it when you get to the ends to keep some bouncy vitality. Enlist the help of a waft of spray and you're camera-ready.

 

But wait! Don't forget to include thick, ruby red or crimson lipstick and three shades of eyeshadow. Generally a blue or gray will leave you the most Marilyn-esque. To offset any unfamiliar vibrancy, make those eyebrows thick, though not out-of-control-thick, and brown. Once you're done, you should be ready for a night out on the town. But give any Kennedy's a wide berth.!

The Classic Flaxen Pixie.

The familiar pixie cut, if done without the client's face shape foremost in mind, can sometimes be too blunt so the concern may be it may not suit.

Pixies can also compliment triangular and oval shaped faces.
