wavy hairAs Australian Fashion Week slowly comes to a glamorous end, a hairstyle I’ve been completely coveting is none other than the retro wave as seen on the runway of White Sands earlier in the week.

The ‘do incorporated gently tousled S-shaped waves and the texture was kept dry, with natural shine to evoke a 1960’s feel.

“I met Leah the designer and she showed me a couple of samples from the collection; the prints were really soft with a 50s, 60s feel to it and I wanted that softness to come through the hair. It’s the backcombing at the crown which is really key to accentuate the 60s feel,” explains Redken Hair Director, Paloma Rose Garcia backstage.

1. Apply Redken Thickening Lotion 06 All-Over Body Builder through towel dried hair and through the root area for lift. Completely dry off the hair.

2. Create a low side part. Use the center of your eye as the starting point, pulling back diagonally to the crown.

3. Start curling on the lower side of the hair, beginning with the lengths at the back. Spray each section first with hairspray, wrapping the hair towards the face. Pin to scalp and leave to cool.
TIP: Don’t curl above the brow to keep a relaxed wave rather than bouncy curls.

4. Remove pins and shape wave with a soft bristle brush. Finish with more hairspray to hold in place.

You’re done! All you need now is to strike a runway pose…
