There is already lots of buzz around Baz Luhrmann’s re-make of the movie “The Great Gatsby.” I’m sure we’ll seeing jeweled headbands and flapper dresses soon. The classic “Bob” hairstyle is a classic, but now everyone will have one. Luckily I have a sort of Bob already so hey, add a headband and I’m there! Ummm, but how to add those sleek waves?
Here you go…
How to create sleek waves:
Show up to the nightly outdoor summer parties with a perfectly styled wavy bob. Nexxus Creative Director Kevin Mancuso recommends using “a curling iron to create waves then brush hair straight down.” Preserve and strengthen your look with the new Nexxus Youth Renewal™ Rejuvenating Elixir and finish it off with a perfectly-placed headband. I’m currently testing two other Nexxus Youth Renewal products and will have reviews soon, so stay tuned!
Availability: Nexxus Youth Renewal™ products are available at mass, drug and grocery stores nationwide.
I’m absolutely loving the Deepa Gurnani headbands I have. They can be worn like a traditional headband or a la the 20′s era like this–doesn’t this scream Daisy Buchanan?
For a fresh, modern twist on Daisy Buchanan’s classic 1920′s makeup looks, start with an iconic brand like Laura Mercier.
Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner and Angled Eye Liner Brush make it easy to recreate the sharply defined and lined eyes of the 1920′s. The unique formula combines the finish of a gel with the precision of a liquid liner and applies in one effortless stroke.
Delivering a glow true only of a day in the Buchanan garden, this color illuminates with a delicate blush radiance. Shiseido blushes are silky smooth and apply beautifully. Read my review of the peachy Starfish here.
This beautiful deep red exudes chic ‘20s elegance, creating brilliant color definition with a smooth matte finish. If you aren’t quite ready for a BOLD lip, try the new Shiseido Perfect Rouge Tender Sheers for a sheer wash of color and shine. I’m in love with the new formula and have been wearing RD 205 Flora constantly.
