Get the Look: 70’s Inspired Voluminous Waves

Ready to bring the 70’s back? A must have for this look is a great shiny and rich texture for your hair in order to shape your locks into simple and clear waves.

First things first, I applied a mousse (try this one from Bumble and Bumble) on Olivia’s hair while still slightly wet to give body, distributed from the roots to the tips with a large comb, then, I started styling her hair with a hairdryer and two different combs, a termix 32 mm and a 37 mm, to obtain two different undulations.

Starting from her nape down to her frontal lock, for each section I used a different comb, interchanging them, always respecting the length of the hair, not to change the proportions. Each lock is then rolled up and fixed with a hair grip. Leave the clips in for at least 10 minutes, once cooled the locks, remove the grips and brush the hair from the roots to the tips with your head upside down.

Last step: Define each lock with Shu Uemura sheer lacquer, literally drawing waves to enhance your hair-do. With these few easy steps, the result is a fresh and super cool 70’s look.
