Mad Men starChristina Hendricks needed a va-va-voom hair look to match her stunning Christian Siriano gown and, well, va-va-voom curves. She and hair stylist Gregory Russell were inspired by 1930s looks and Bottega Veneta’s F/W 13 runway styles but Gregory also wanted to give her hair a modern feel with tons of texture. Accessorized with a Marianne Schwartz diamond barrette, Gregory used Vidal Sassoon Pro Series products to create Christina’s luxe locks.
Here’s the step-by-step details on how to get the look:
• First prep damp hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse, applying at the roots and length for touchable volume.
• Rough blow dry hair until it’s 90% dry. Use a Mason Pearson brush and blow out hair in sections to create texture and a bouncy wave. Once hair is dry, create a deep side part.
• Then take a section of the hair and spray it with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Waves Hairspray to give hair definition and minimize frizz. Curl the section with a ½ inch curling iron for 15 seconds and then pin to let it cool. Curl hair with a ½ inch wand iron for a bouncy, looser wave and a ½ inch marcel iron for a smoother wave, alternating irons to create a textured, modern look.
• Let pinned hair cool for 15-20 minutes to create a tight wave and then backcomb unpinned hair around the nape to give hair more volume and create a good shape. Apply Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Color Gloss Crème around the part to show definition.
Lastly, finish style with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray to lock your look in place.
