THE PAMELA ANDERSON UPDO: EMBRACE ’90S GLAMOUR IN THE MODERN AGE
“Pamela Anderson’s iconic ‘90s updo has taken on new heights this year and makes the perfect glamorous hair look,” Jacky says. To channel this modern take on a classic, Jacky recommends starting with maximum texture. Achieve this enviable volume using a root lift like Oribe’s Swept Up combined with a Volumising Spray – our top pick being WILDE’s Volumising + Thickening Tonic .
“Leave some face-framing tendrils to evoke a touch of softness,” advises Jacky. For the updo, gather your hair into a twist and secure it with a sturdy claw clip. From there, let your creativity flow – gently tousle strands for a natural feel and employ grip clips or embellishments to secure and accessorise your look. Don’t forget the face-framing tendrils; enhance them with a curling wand and a trusty heat protector to ensure your curls remain flawless.
THE SLEEK FLICK PONYTAIL: TIMELESS CHIC WITH A PLAYFUL TWIST
“A sleek ponytail never goes out of style,” Jacky asserts. Start with a strong foundation – straight hair primed for styling perfection. Before reaching for the straightener, shield your locks with protective products to maintain their strength and vitality. “For a ponytail that defies gravity, opt for a mousse to slick your hair back,” Jacky recommends. The mousse’s unique capability to hold hair in a curl makes it an ideal choice. Secure your ponytail, then work your straightener magic on the ends, flicking them outward to infuse a dash of retro charm into the classic ponytail.
THE FACE-LIFTING HALF UPDO: ELEGANCE MEETS EFFORTLESS SOPHISTICATION
For a dash of foxiness, Jacky champions the half updo. “Boost volume and texture at the roots with a root-boosting spray, like WILDE Texturising Tonic” he advises. Sectioning hair can sometimes lead to a flattened look, so this step is key. Delve into your artistic side by utilising your eyes, brows, and temples as guides. Imagine an invisible line above your eyes and craft your section starting from there for an instant eye lift illusion.
“Secure the upper section firmly at the crown of your head,” Jacky explains. Manipulate the center of this section for added volume, while ensuring the sides remain sleek and tight for that alluring lift effect.
BUNS FOR DAYS: EFFORTLESS COOL FACTOR
In the realm of up styles, buns reign supreme. “Behold these mesmerizing stacked buns” Jacky exclaims. Stacked buns are here to take your hair game to a whole new level – think sculptural chic with a playful twist. Let your locks dance in this bun-iverse of boldness and beauty. It’s time to turn heads and show off your vibrant flair!
BRAIDED PONYTAIL: SUBTLE GRACE WITH A PLAYFUL TWIST
Marvel at the braided ponytail’s magnetic charm. “We’re captivated by the beautifully swept-back crown and the slight disarray of the plait, finished with a charming hair scarf,”Jacky observes. It’s a style that effortlessly dances between sophistication and playfulness, making it perfect for a weekend rendezvous.
