Get Veronica's Hair

 It's due time I wrote another 'how to'.  I thought I'd start you off with a relatively easy style to create, so today our lesson is how to recreate a classic Bombshell hairstyle made ever-so popular by the very beautiful and sexy Veronika Lake. 



THE VERONICA LAKE



STEP 1
Shampoo with a prodct that gives your hair a soft sheen, but doesn’t weigh it down


STEP 2
Apply a product to your hair that will protect it from heat and help it hold on to the curl for longer. I like mousse that won't go 'crunchy'.



STEP 3
Using a hairdryer, almost fully dry your hair.


STEP 4
With a section comb, create a deep side parting. This will give you the signature Veronica Lake “over-one-eye curl”.


STEP 5
Using a wide-barrelled heated tong, curl small sections of hair, starting at the top of the head and working through to the mid layers and underneath. Don’t curl the hair under, we aren't going for a Doris Day look yet!
Put the tong on top of the strands of hair close to the root and wrap the hair diagonally, rather than winding it, so you get a wave rather than a curl. Remove the tong, keeping the wound-up hair together and pin close to the head using a small sectioning clip.


STEP 6
When the whole head is curled and clipped, and the hair is cool, removem. Using your fingertips, tease the curls into looser waves. To keep your hair in place, spray with a good hairspray.


STEP 7
Accessorise with a classic red lipstick – the ultimate partner for your new Bombshell hairstyle.
