Modern Hollywood Glam Hair Tutorial

Modern Hollywood Glam Hair Tutorial

I’ve always been a huge fan of the signature Veronica Lake curls. It’s even a hairstyle that I debated getting from my wedding, but in the end, I opted to wear my hair up. However, on many occasions, I’ve wanted that vibe, but in a slightly looser, modern way. To achieve this look, I’ve partnered with Nexxus New York Salon Care and called in Erica from Pin Me Up Hair, to help me out!

Products Used:

*Nexxus Promend Heat Protecting Mist

*Nexxus Mousse + Volumizing Foam

*Nexxus Maxximum Finishing Mist

*Soft Bristle Brush

*1″ curling iron

The Steps:

1. On slightly damp hair, apply a handful of Nexxus Mousse + Volumizing Foam from roots to ends. This will give your hair body and help hold the style.

2. Lightly blow dry. Once hair is dry, part it to the side that you prefer and spritz with Heat Protecting Mist. Since this style requires lots of heat from the curling iron, this will serve as a protective barrier for your hair.

3. Start with the front piece and using the curling iron, taking 1″ pieces, curl away from your face.

4. The key to this style is to curl each piece in the same exact direction. Normally, when I curl my hair, I curl some pieces towards my face and some away, but with this look, all the same exact direction. 

5. Get the curls somewhat tight and don’t brush them out just yet. We want to wait until the very end  so the curl takes shape.

6. Now, once you have your entire hair curled, use a soft bristled brush to lightly brush them out.

7. Once they’re brushed out, you should be left with a soft, modern take on the Hollywood glam look.

8. Spray with Maxximum Hold Finishing Mist for long lasting control that’s soft to the touch and you’re done!
