Stylist Robert Vetica gives us the dish on how to create this classic sexy hairstyle!
Kyra Sedgwick’s look was reminiscent of Rita Hayworth, but more delicate
and loosely curled. He then pulled it back to show off her face with
cascading hair when she turned. He wanted the hair down but still elegant,
Hollywood and fresh.
Her Oscar de la Renta gown with a fitted bodice and deep neckline helped
Vetica make the decision to sweep the hair back off the face. The result: a
retro-style pin-up ‘do with a more soft and relaxed feel.
How to get the look
- Kyra’s hair was blow-dried to a smooth finish with a touch of Moroccanoil
Treatment, directed away from the face using a strong spray gel to hold her
hair up and away from her forehead.
- The back of the hair was curled inward to create wave and volume. Vetica
used a heat styling spray to protect the hair and to help give a firm hold
to the swept back look.
- Vetica brushed Kyra’s hair back from the front, to keep it away from her
face. The final look framed her face and cascaded into waves when she
turned. Vetica finished the style by rubbing a small amount of Moroccanoil
Hydrating Styling Cream through his hands, smoothing the hair and adding
shine to finish and refine the look.
