Vintage-style curls are back. Think Rita Hayworth as the femme fatale in Gilda.
“Elegant hair is the look for spring, and curls are the epitome of elegance,” says Rocco Campanaro, owner of Axcess Salon Spa in Richmond Hill, Ont. If your hair is straight or short, blow-dry it until it’s about half dry, explains Campanaro. For long or wavy hair, apply a cream, such as Matrix Sleek.look Styling Creme, to damp hair. Then blow-dr hair until it’s almost dry using a large, round brush. Spray your hair with a heat-activated treatment such as Biolage Thermal Active Setting Spray. Part your hair and set it in velcro rollers. Remove the rollers when hair is completely dry and spray it again. Apply a finishing shine product and smooth the crown with a comb. Now toss your sultry mane and make some waves.
