Suki Waterhouse

Hair Trend: 1960'S CHIC

 
 

British bombshell Suki Waterhouse's hair in her recent shoot in Lucky Magazine really captured my attention; I love anything 1960's style related, especially some voluminous hair! What is so appealing about the look that she is sporting is its imperfection, and I'll tell you why-because its achievable! If I can do it, so can you. I asked my friend and make-up artist Amy Weissenberg for a short cut, easy guide to get the Suki's 60's look.

WhAT YOU NEEd:

  • Day old hair
  • Dry shampoo
  • A teasing brush
  • Bobby pins
  • L'oreal Elnett hairspray

Put your hair into a center part (this gives it the modern, Brigitte Bardot/Suki look) and liberally spray your roots with dry shampoo, focusing especially on the crown of your head. Then backcomb the crown of your head with your teasing brush concentrating on the roots and top of your head. Grab your pins and pin back your hair like a half up down hair-do (but in this case we have lots of volume on the crown from the dry shampoo and back combing!). If you have bangs leave them out, I like to leave two pieces around the front of my face to tuck behind my ears to give that mussed up undone look that Suki is wearing. If you want your hair to have a little bend or kick to the ends. grab your hot iron or curling iron and loosely wrap the ends for a little movement. Finish with hairspray. Voila!

MODEL OF THE MOMENT: SUKI WATERHOUSE

Screen shot 2013-03-04 at 9.47.48 AM

I know everyone is talking about Cara Delevigne right now as THE model of the moment (aka MOTM for those in the know) but I think that fellow Brit Suki Waterhouse is a face to watch. She has all of the requirements needed to reach It Girl/MOTM status; a movie star boyfriend, a London cool girl sensibility (she is seen at all of the right places in the capital) and her very own aesthetic of Mod 1960's meets Godard heroine. Bangs, winged eyeliner, a mini beehive and lots of knee high socks is grabbing all of the right kinds of attention in the British fashion community, its only a matter of time before the US sits up and takes notice!
